I leased this vehicle in 2001 and purchased it after the lease expired. I just surpassed 231,000 miles and would like to keep driving it but feel it's time for a new Altima. The only maintenance has been oil changes, brake pads, wiper blades, belts and hoses. This is a great vehicle and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This car is the most reliable car I've had. I love the fact that it has cruise control which really helps on gas cause I travel on the highway a lot. Another thing that is great about this car is that I have trunk access from inside the car which also makes for more trunk space when needed.

I've owned this 2001 Altima GXE for 80,000 miles(it now has 140,000 miles). Got as much as 32 mpg on the 4 cylinder. Replaced the intake gasket(common problem due to one hot cylinder) and the alternator. Been a wonderful car and obviously treated me right. Thanks Nissan!

A Smoooooth ride in a Mid-Size Car

by from Los Angeles, CA on July 19, 2006

The Altima is a nice vehicle. I have the GLE and it is like riding in luxury. When people get inside, they compare it to the Lexus IS300. It is very sporty like as well as luxurious.

bought my altima used for cheap! with 98k on the dash. have put 10k since then. never had a problem with it. the rear deck feels a little smushed, and the car seems sluggish at times, though the mere addition of a cold air intake ($60 or so) seemed to pep it up. great car, definitely a fan.

Bought a used Altima Limited with 90K miles. I got it from an individual it belonged to his granny. This car was service right and it shows. It currently has 115K and nothing wrong. Not as good on fuel MPG. But overall very pleased with my 2001 Altima.

Bought the car in 2001, slightly used, on a lease agreement. Purchased the car at the end of the lease and finally paid it off a few months ago. It is without a doubt the best car that I've ever owned. It has just over 100,000 miles on it and unless something unforeseen happens, we plan on keeping on keeping on with it. Repairs have included regular maintenance, new axles and belts and that's about it.
