"Only owner and driver since 2001 reliable and has cost little in maintenance $, trim around the window has deteriorated, Altima label on the back has come slightly unglued, donut tire was bad and blew out as soon as it was mounted, 6 CD changer quit working, but everything else works I would say that it was built poorly because it only has 73k miles and is falling apart maybe due to age or FL weather I changed the oil every 5K since owning it, so engine seems sound and haven't had any engine trouble I did replace the head gasket when it appeared to leak, but that wasn't necessary cause it never leaked I was misled by techs, I'll review it again when it hits 100,000"
"I bought it used and have owned it for 6 years. It is super reliable; I've kept up with all maintenance and it just keeps humming along! I'll definitely be getting another Altima when this one dies ... but who knows when that will be!"
"I bought this car new in 07/2001 and I have never had any major issue. Only repairs are the EKG valve and one cylinder in the break system, which meant less than 300 dollars.
With 13.5 years and 130K, this car still going very strong and with very good fuel efficiency (~30miles/gallon).
I plan to keep my car for several years to come. I don't see why to spend 20 grand on a new vehicle. This car needs only gasoline and regular oil changes.
I bought a Nissan Quest 2011 for my wife. She is extremely happy."
"Regular oil changes and maintenance have kept this 2000 Altima GLE running smoothly for 130,000 trouble free miles. never had any major problems. Need an AWD so will be replacing with a fourth Nissan."
