2000 Nissan Altima GXE from North America


The biggest problem I have with this car is that customer service at Nissan is non-existent. You have to call the dealers constantly to get anything done on your car.

The latest problem on the car was the nut fell off the pulley that holds the belts on my car. The mechanic at Nissan told me this was normal wear and tear. My mechanic said this was a lie. Nuts just don't fall off car engines.

I bought this car because it had good reviews and I needed a reliable car. Nissan might make a descent car, but you better hope you never have to get it serviced.

I have a Nissan Altima & other than having the normal maintenance performed other than oil changes & a tune up & front brake pads replaced at a 138,000 miles, I've had no problems with the car. Sounds like your biggest problem was the dealer, not the car, or manufacturer. I would suggest never buying a car again from that dealer.

I have an Altima GXE and it is coming up on 160,000 miles without any major service. Routine service at our dealer is excellent. I would say the original poster's experience unfairly characterizes all Nissan dealers based on one bad experience, and that's a shame.

Driver's side headlight plastic frame got cracked.

General Comments:

The Nissan service was very professional. They changed the headlight for a new one free.

This car is the best car I ever had. I'm will stick with Nissan's forever. Go and buy a Nissan today, I love it.

The best overall sedan in this price range



General Comments:

This fine auto has been refined and improved over the years. Very solid and has very good handling. Excellent brakes. Smooth on the highway and stable at 100 mph. Quiet ride. No torque steer.

The seat could be more comfortable and the engine should be 10% stronger to match the rest of the car. However, has enough power for practical use and is somewhat sporty in nature.

Should last a long time with proper care. I suggest you buy new and do not test the power until you about a 1000 miles for a proper break-in. The engine and transmission are still built in Japan and they seem to be flawless.
