Perfect Commuter Car
By Shayne Sintz on
Vehicle2000 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan
ReviewPurchased 2000 GXE off lease in 2001 with 12K on it. Drives like a smaller car and predictable if pushed. No rattles or squeaks. Economical, but still very able to have fun with. Only had brake pads, serpentine belt, and tires replaced (now with over 85,000). Very reliable. Yup, the body style is bland, but who cares? For a car payment under $240/mo to own, you simply cannot beat it. Plan to drive into the ground (150- 200K+ miles). The A/C is cold and other climate conrols are fine. Literally, the only complaint may be that the e-brake handle protrudes into leg room on larger drivers. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a well built commuter car on the cheap.
Best FeaturesCold A/C, wood grain interior trim, peppy engine, good milage, predictable handling, understated design, reliability, reliability, reliability.
Worst FeaturesOffer window tint, power adjustable driver seat, better noise insultation, ABS brakes would be nice. (These might already be offered on the higher end models).
