Yes-this is the most reliable auto I've ever owned

I wish I could afford to buy a new Altima now. It's the best car I've ever owned. We just traded it in for a Hyundai Elantra Touring car. I hated to trade it in but wanted a hatchback and the car was going on 12 years old. Had only 98,000 miles on it - was so reliable. I would have kept it as a second car if I didn't need it for the downpayment on a newer car. I highly recommend and Nissan auto as they are really great cars. There didn't seem to be anything seriously wrong with the car when we traded it in...and it looked new as we took care of it. I was the original owner - a non-smoker.

I bought my 2000 Altima used last year after a long painful ownership of a 1998 Sebring. I love it to death! There is this one thing: the engine does not always shut off right away after I've turned the key to shut it off. I've found that if I have something else running, like the fan or the radio, and then turn that off a second before I turn the engine off, the engine will turn off like it's supposed to right away. There's this another small thing: if I don't park with the wheel exactly straight, the car may not start next time I go to drive it. Nobody has been able to ever find out what that's about because it'll start when they test it so of course none of the tests are going to come back as someting being bad. So I have to park straight and turn the engine off right away after parking and turning everything else off. I can live with that. :-)

Sportiest Car I ever drove

I bought this 2.4SE Altima with 112K miles. Because it was well driven, I had to replace some parts, like the entire braking system, which cost me $500. It has great fuel economy for the horsepower. The ride is a little on the hard side because of the thin tires stiff suspension, but that is why this car handles very well on highway, curves, and wet pavements. I have owned a 95 Camry 2.2LE, which was much quieter and had a much better ride quality, but it had the same 29 Hwy mpg as this Altima and it had much less horsepower. Overall the Altima has great handling, performance, and fuel economy.

We had our 2000 Altima for 125,000 miles and did not have to put one penny in it besides routine maintenance. Great Car would highly recommend it to anyone!

You can't beat this car for reliability. I've owned it since new and have done nothing but changed tires, the battery, oil and brakes. It's not the fastest, the prettiest, the cheapest or the most expensive, but it will simply not leave you on the side of the road. Oh, and ya, it handles and brakes very very well (the SE model). After six years of ownership I can definately say, I'd do it again.

Purchased new in 2000. 14.5 years later 262000 miles and still going strong. AC tempermental. If using oil recommend get gaskets done. I had 100000 miles on it at 2 years . If I had to I would take it across country again. I did the required maintenance throuh 200000 miles. Handles well in snow up to 6". Anything more than that is testy as it sits low to the ground. Am looking at Nissan again as one day my baby will die.

Great overall vehicle

by from Ft. Lauderdale, FL on July 21, 2007

The steering is tight and the controls are well laid out. I like getting great gas mileage in a car that also has good get up and go. Looks stylish too.
