Reliable and Dependable

by The AL-Tima "Altima" from FL on 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.

My first car

by Jack from Youngstown, OH on 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

This car runs forever

by mich from maryland on 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.

This vehicle never stops in the middle of road!

by Dubnis from Fairfax, VA on May 24, 2018

We bought this car in 2004 with 92k miles on it then. It is 14 years and its mileage is about 138k now. There was some repair work done as needed from time to time to and oil change was regular to keep it in good condition. The use was not more than 300 miles/month. It never stopped running in the middle of the road. Except for a flat tire we could rely on its mechanical components all the time!

Not bad as car.

by JnPaul from Florida, FL on August 8, 2017

My father bought this car in 2008, it was the first time I drove an automatic car and the driving experience was great. I can say it's a good car and if you wanna buy an old car, why not choosing it.
