Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have had minimal problems with this car,notably the distributor that also contains a sensor that when it fails will cause the car not to start.Learned the hard way that rebuilt distributors won't work 9/10 times!The parts have been very reasonable,and if you're mechanically inclined it's a fairly easy vehicle to work on.It's a good car to keep in the family and pass around with the reliability and cheap parts.The console design is definitely lacking,especially the cup holders.The trunk is huge."

Pros: "Fun to drive. Reliable. Good looks."

Cons: "Costly to maintain"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"The Altima has been very costly for me to maintain as living in the desert tends to dry out bushings, hoses, cv boots, and motor mounts. Also, electrical components, alternator, distributor and starter will fail at high mileage. Tip: Go aftermarket anywhere else, but buy factory new or refurbished for electrical components. A/C going still strong. Overall, this car has been very reliable for city driving it's fun to drive, handles effectively, with fair to good MPG."

"Got this car 11 years ago with only 26,000 miles and it now has over 160,000. Price from a private party was $7,000. It has a moon-roof and spoiler and was very stylish in the day. Only problem was I replaced the alternator 2x. Overall a great car that got worn down over the years and now it is time to move on. Nissan Altima's Rule!"

Cons: "turning radius definitely lacking on this model"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Bought this 1997 Altima used with about 55,000 miles on it. We've been driving it for about 11 years now & that's a first for me! I am a driver as you can tell by the miles most cars only last me a year or two before they start falling apart. I don't mind maintenance costs on a good car but nickle and dime costs can make you crazy! We have never had this problem with this car! Last time we took it in for scheduled maintenance we thanked our mechanic for keeping it going as we had just passed the 200,000 mile mark. He smiled and said thanks! and you'll probably get another 100,000 out of her if we just keep doing what we're doing! Needless to say we love it!...and when the time does come to retire this car you can bet we'll be looking at whatever Nissan has to offer first!"
