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


I did months of research and the Altima
was one of the ones that ranked high on
my list. I purchased the '01 Limited
Edition model and obviously this model
was not included in the high-rated
reviews I kept reading about. My car
has died 3 times in one week, starter
problems. I have to wait for it to die
again and then have it towed to the
mechanic for troubleshooting. The
driver's side mirror vibrates on bumpy
roads and when the CD is in use. No
explanation or repair available. The
ride isn't as smooth as I would like
and the driver's side door doesn't want
to close completely... go figure. I'm
going to look into a '03 Accord.

Best Features

Alarm system, gas mileage and ease of handling.

Worst Features

Needs to be more solidly built...I suppose that's where the modifications in the '02 model come in. Security chip in key is costly, over $100. I've never kept such a tight grip on a single car key in my life.
