As Reliable as it Gets

2001 Nissan Altima GXE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


This is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. After 4 years, and 50,000 miles, I have had no repair bills other than preventive care. Personally, that's all I'm really looking for in a vehicle. However, while the Altima isn't a sports car, when equipped with the 5 speed manual, the KA24DE engine provides plenty of power for day to day driving. The car handles above average for a family sedan. My main complaints are disappointing MPG, and a bit too much wind noise. I also had to replace the the OEM CD Player as it did not play burned CDs. With low operating cost and low initial purchase cost, this would be a great car for college student or people on a tight budget. Highly recommended.

Best Features

Reliability, low cost of ownership, plenty of spare parts, reasonably fun to drive

Worst Features

Better MPG for a 4-cyl, bigger seats, reduced wind noise.
