This car runs forever

by mich from maryland | June 3, 2013

Owned one for 10 years, never had any trouble with it. Just do the oil, plugs, brake pads change when they are due and you will be fine.

My first car

by Jack from Youngstown, OH | May 4, 2011

This car will always have value to me, it was my first car that I owned! My dad bought it for me when I was in highschool. Even though I traded it in, I still miss it. I want it back! The fuel economy was awesome and I think it's such a cute car. I wish I had never let mine go. ILYJ

Reliable and Dependable

by The AL-Tima "Altima" from FL | February 27, 2009

My 1997 Altima was the best car ever. It extremely reliable. My family has brought cars more up to date than mine and their cars are DEAD, BUT my Altima is still goind and in great shape as long as I keep up the minor maintanence. My car currently has 209,954 miles and still going strong. Recently I've had issues with CV Axles and a slight oil leak. I've had the oil leak fixed and will replace CV Axle soon. Other thn that, this car has been a blessing.
