1999 Nissan Altima GXE 2.4 l from North America
Awesome economical sporty sedan
When I first bought the car, I thought it was a lemon. I had to sink about $3000 into repairs to get it to pass PA inspection. In fact these repairs were overdue because of the previous owner not maintaining the car.
Looking at it doesn't get your heart racing with excitement. It is one of the dullest designs on four wheels. However, once you drive it and realize that after 7000 miles that you haven't had to top up the oil or coolant (something which I was used to on Volvos...), that you can still get 25 to 28 MPG driving at 75 mph on the highway, and that it hugs the road like a sports car, even with shocks that have over 150000 miles in them, then you start liking the poor thing a lot more.
It's decently comfortable, which is important for me because I have a 100 mile journey to get to work, the controls are easily accessible, and the interior is of fairly good quality.
Since I had the car inspected, I've done 7000 miles without a hiccup.
It has plenty of pick up when needed, and can cruise at 80 mph all day long.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
