2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car used from a rental company about 5 years ago. It had 37,000 miles and I am very near 110,000 now. Most expensive repair was window switch which was less than $100.00. Just had to replace the sending unit to the transmission yesterday and my mechanic said not to expect more than 25,000 - 30,000 more miles before needing a new transmission. Now trying to decide if I should sell it or spend the $2500 - $3000 on the transmission and hope it lasts me a few more years. Overall this car has been very reliable and I love it. Hope I can find a reliable newer one as my next car!

Best Features

Huge back seat and plenty of leg room upfront for my husband who is over 6 ft

Worst Features

Can't really think of anything accept the interior is pretty basic, but that's how the S series is...
