1995 Nissan Altima GXE 1.6L from North America
Don't ever buy this car!
I consistently put around 12,000 miles per year on this car. This last year and a half it seems like the car has systematically self-destructed, part by part. I have had to replace the window assembly motor, the radiator, starter motor, master brake cylinder, Rear motor mount, whole distributor assembly (twice). It seems the minute one part gets fixed, I have to replace another one a month later. I have had the transmission checked out because it shifts very erratically in second and third gear. The transmission was okay- it seems that it's pretty normal for this car to shift erratically. I have to leave overdrive on all the time.
I've been very very dissatisfied with the lack of quality in this car.
I have serviced this car regularly.
Speaker quality is awful.
Because of high shifting, gas mileage is compromised.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have also put a distributer on this car. Also, a radiator, complete brakes three times in five years, two alternators in less than six months, two batteries, front axles twice. I need a new car, but I can't save for one as I am constantly putting money into this one. I bought it used and I have put more money into than I paid for it. I do not put more than 8000 miles a year on this car.

I have an Altima and I have barely have had any problems with it. The only thing that broke on it was the distributor ($100 to fix). I bought my car a year ago with 106,000 miles and since then I have put 24,000 miles on it and that car has never left me stranded even when the distributor was going bad. The speakers are horrible, I have to agree with that.

I bought my altima last summer with 117,000 miles on it and over the winter, it's fallen apart. I now no longer have reverse and the transmission sounds like it's going to fall out most of the time.
