"I just sold my 1996 Altima GXE (bought 10/95) in 2009! I bought an Infiniti G35 almost two years ago but kept this car and liked better than G for mileage, ease of driving and low costs to maintain and insure. Never thought I'd have the car over 5-7 years but if you get one, they seem to last forever. Easy to resell too - I intend to sell the G in a few years and get another Altima! A little road noise but a great value for your money. :)"
"I have been driving a '94 Altima ever since I got my license 9 years ago. Despite my neglect, the car has been extremely reliable. I would keep it forever if it wasn't for the rust. While the automatic transmission can be at times a little reluctant to downshift, it has decent power. Overall, its been a great car."
"I bought a 1993 Altima in 2005. It was a high mileage car when I bought it and it ran wonderfully for several years until it was wrecked. It was hit from the side and the back and all the passengers were safe and the car drove away! Wonderful car, I will be purchasing another altima!"
"I owned a Toyota prior to purchasing my used nissan. I would pefer the toyota over the nissan anyday! The nissan has very cold AC but nothing special other than that. It could never compare to a Toyota."
"I bought this new in November 1993. My daughter was 2. She is now driving the car. It has 235,000 miles on it and still runs very well. The car is like that battery...it just keeps going and going. I would say that this car was better than all my Honda's which also were great cars."
"Bought my daughter a 97 after she and my two sons tried, unsucessfully, to destroy our 93, which is still soldiering on with over 160K miles and at least one dent on every surface. The 97 was continuing that unflappable tradition when it was totalled by a "Sunfire strike" in the back bumper. In its death the car demonstrated one of its most important features: occupant protection. My daughter was only slightly injured, but the Altima had its back bumper pushed into the back seat. The front doors still opened and glass was broken in only one rear door. Looking for another one to replace it. One of the best car values I've ever run across."
"for the money the 92 to 96 altimas are probably one of the best values out there. I am second owner, car now has 144k on it. No major mechanical breakdowns, just keeps going. Just drove it on a 2000 mile trip with NO problems. Gets 25 mpg! Hate to see it go but family just got bigger"
