1998 Nissan Altima GLE 4dr Sedan


I leased this car in April '98 it was a
loaded GLE, as a graduation gift. Since
then until late Oct. '01, this was 1 of
the most reliable cars ever. Everyone
I knew loved my car, some even drove
it. Small troubles in '99 w/ a bad
battery at 22K and later around 29K the
cd/cass. unit went bad. Also had 2
accidents in Spring & Winter '00,
despite those the car still drove like
new. I was on top of maintenance &
cleaning like crazy and had compliments
that it looked and ran like new. Got
rid of it in late '01 since the lease
was up.

Best Features

luxury-car feel for a fraction of the cost, stereo sounded alomst like bose, quite fast for a 4 cyl, very quiet

Worst Features

ABS and 4-wheel disc brakes should've been std. on GXE & GLE, paint quality needs to improve, better quality leather, auto climate control on GLE, 4- cyl was good but could've been faster
