2001 Nissan Altima very reliable car and very roomy for families.

The only major problem seems to be the pin that holds the wheel on tends to go bad. Performance is very good. Seats are uncomfortable. Its an older car but has air condition, cruise, 2 cigarette lighters to charge accessories. It has a power driver seat that will adjust the back part of the seat as well as the part you sit on. Very reliable family car.

Very dependable and reliable car.

I have owned this car for 10 years get 25 miles per gallon of gas I have intermittent windshield wipers for doors power windows and door locks am FM cassette radio my car is very reliable front wheel drive it will go in the snow unless it is too deep it has everything that I made and want I love it even though it is an 01 model.

- A F

Great looks, holding up ok.

I like the interior and the body has held up. Other than that it is been a typical older car and I am just trying to do my best to keep it road worthy so I can get where I want to go. I think it is having a normal number of problems for a car that is starting to get older so that is not a unique issue for Nissan.
