Fun To Drive, But...

2000 Nissan Altima SE 4dr Sedan


I really appreciate the Altima's handling and the engine is tolerable. But I have had several problems. I bought the car used and it developed some very annoying rattles. The intake manifold gasket went after one year (Nissan covered the repair), and the instrument cluster died on the interstate, and came back to life about 30 miles later. I love the way the car looks and handles, but I am dissapointed with the mechanical problems I have an encountered. I am really having a hard time deciding whether to keep it. With gas prices on the rise it may have to go. I typically get less than 20 mpg. I have a 6 cylinder Jeep that gets better gas mileage.

Best Features

Styling and handling is superb

Worst Features

Gas mileage! Traction on wet roads. Work out the electrical bugs.
