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


Bought used in March '04 when forced to
become a courier due to being laid off.
Was local rental with 41k miles. I only
had $10k and had to find something
reliable, low mileage, relatively safe
and economical. The Camry and Accord
were over my budget and the Altima
seemed to fit the bill. After 38k miles
in 5 months (that's right!) I have been
mostly satisfied. I did have to
replaced the alternator ($340 changed
it out myself) but only maintenance
items besides that. I drive an average
of 10 hours a day so comfort is
important, and I have been pleasantly
surprised by the seat comfort. (I am a
big guy!) Actually roomier up front
than other cars.

Best Features

All the bells and whistles for about 3k less than accord/camry. Responsive 4 cyl engine, handles well for family sedan. Good gas mileage, average 26 mpg.

Worst Features

I hate the internal window antenna which looses effectiveness when windows are tinted. Front end bumper is built too low to the ground and often drags.
