Review

I have found ownership of my Altima having offsetting pluses & minuses. Yes it's reliable and gas mileage around 25-28 mpg. But when parts wear out they are quite expensive. The seats are hard & uncomfortable, it has the turning radius of a truck, the stereo is no Bose.


Best Features

Reliability, room, economy


Worst Features

Needs much better seats, shorter turning radius, firmer suspension, improve stereo

Review

I've put over 200,000 miles on my Altima and it's still runs great. My wife owns a 1998 Altima with 90,000 miles on it and it also solid. I've had to replace the driver's side visor in both several times because it is connected by cheap plastic. This is the great choice for anyone wanting to get out from under a gas guzzler and still get a dependable car.


Worst Features

better visors.

I bought my altima with 88000 miles on it after owning a Toyota and 2 hondas, have to say both are way overrated,my Altima has been the most dependable car I've ever had, and let me say "some rockin a/c", blows 38 degrees in Florida-ice cold, and the car is so easy to maintain for the do it yourselfer, have not had a single problem yet, now 140,000 miles and going strong


Best Features

Air conditioner-ice cold.


Worst Features

Paint scratches easily,and wind noise can be heard around windows

1999 Nissan Altima Sedan SE Limited 4dr Sedan


Review

I was looking for an affordable and reliable car in the $3500 range to serve as my daily commuter. My 2000 Ford F-150 doesn't compare when it comes to fuel consumption. I am happy about my purchase. Fuel consumption, comfort and so far reliability are all great, not to mention the looks. The turning radius is a little wide but that's ok. I had to replace the 2 stock door speakers and the 2 rear deck speakers because they were blown. These are all 6 1/2 cheap 1 way spkrs. They are rated 30w max/15w nom. I replaced them with Pioneer 6 1/2 260w 4-way spkrs (model TS-G671M). Great upgrade. I recommend anyone looking for a good commuter vehicle consider this car. Can't go wrong.


Best Features

I love the electric antenna. The sunroof has 2 settings. (1-slides all the way back. 2-back part of roof flips up). Fuel economy is great. Seats are comfy. Quiet ride. Gauge cluster is nice. Center console is nice.


Worst Features

Big driver side blind spot. The visors could be a little larger. Power door locks are weird. Only driver has button to lock all doors. On my other vehicles all doors have a power d/l button. Hurry big truck owners and buy one and watch your gas savings grow.

Review

I've owned this car since purchased and loved it. A few minor improvements to the model would have been nice but overall an excellent car. I rolled it down a hill last week and totalled it. I crawled out virtually unscathed. A few bruises but nothing major. The safety features in this car saved my life.


Best Features

Safety features.


Worst Features

Improve the turning radius. It is incredibly tight even in the largest intersections to turn around. Also the doors don't open wide enough to slide larger bulkier items in easily, such as large boxes.
