Horrible mistake

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


I bought this car after my very reliable Buick Skylark bit the dust. I'd owned an old Honda Accord (1990) before and thought I'd return to a Japanese sedan after growing up in Datsuns. A Datsun, this ain't... Instead, it was a horrible mistake. In the span of 1 year (2009), I put front brakes/rotors, exhaust/muffler, an intake manifold gasket (INCREDIBLY expensive repair for a $10 gasket-- $750), a battery, and an oil pan gasket and oil sender unit. I literally poured over $2500 into this car, and that's without my boyfriend helping me out, as he sells parts for GM and could do some of the repairs independently.

Best Features

Lots of power on the highway and quick to pass other vehicles. Easy to parallel park.

Worst Features

Improve sound system, fuel economy, recall the intake manifold gasket issue.
