2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 from North America
It's a nice car, but now that money is tight, just do what you can to keep it running
I bought my 2002 Altima new.
My heat started acting up at 45000 miles in 2005.
My anti freeze tank had to be refilled weekly at the same time.
In 2008 at 139000 miles, the car requires a quart of oil per 150 city/hwy miles. Plus a constant check engine light.
Upon further inspection, a new or rebuilt engine is required, via a junk yard special (engine with hopefully no more than 60k miles.) and a mechanic who does side work.
My car otherwise drives like a charm, and honestly, unless you were a mechanic, you would never know that it had major problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
