1998 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan


My Altima SE is a 5 spd manual which makes a 4 cyl a little more fun! Bought the car at 124k in fall '04 and will be retiring it soon with 190k. No real problems until last few months - engine is still great. Still using original clutch (needs replacement). Odometer broke a few months ago, and windshield wiper motor just died. Those are the only mechanical things to go wrong in the 4 years I've owned it... not bad! I am now looking to buy an '05 Altima because they are very reliable.

Best Features

Moonroof, spoiler (so ugly without one), fog lights, cruise control (on a standard!)

Worst Features

Does it really matter at this point?? Car has lasted over 10 years and would love to keep it, but replacing clutch not worth it at this point.
