1998 Nissan Altima GXE 2.4L I4 from North America
Most reliable car I've ever had
At 100,000 miles, had to get new drive shafts put on. Was making a clunking noise when turning the car. Was told this is normal wear in a car for this mileage. Cost around 350.00 parts and labor.
Windshield wipers broke around 130000 miles. Was the linkage. Spent 150.00 for repair.
Master window controls quit working due to age, but haven't fixed. Told a new part is around 200.00.
A/C squeals badly when on, haven't fixed that. Started around 125000.
Leaking antifreeze slightly at 150000. Not fixing at this moment.
I love this car. Bought it used in 2000 at 26000 miles, and still drive and own the car at 164000 miles in 2012. What can you say?
Most reliable car ever. Very little maintenance. Engine wise, I think I could drive this car forever. Everything else is starting to get old on it, but engine and transmission is still running like new.
Nissan sure built this car to last and last and last. I actually getting tired of driving it. Will drive this until it can't run any more. Not going to put any major repairs in it though at this age of car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
