My drive with a 2001 Nissan Altima.

2001 Nissan Altima

There is enough space between the gas and brake pedal. It is automatic so it is easy to drive. Mine has issues with the wheels making noise when completing a revolutions. That is expected to see in a car that old. It gets great gas mileage. It is also a little small. You should be able to maneuver a little bit easier. It has lots of trunk space and a working glove compartment. The interior is grey and soft. The brakes work very well. The brake pads are new. Wheels still have meat on them. The seats are in good condition. They slide forward and backward with no problem. This is big enough to lie down in provided you sit in the front seats. The headlight work just fine. The windshield wipers work great. No streaks. The windshield is great. No cracks or anything. The rear window does not have any cracks at all. So they both lasted a long time. The fuel tank holds almost 16 gallons. I get about nineteen miles to a gallon. It has a time chain. That means the engine does not need to touched for maintenance. The car heats up very fast. It has front wheel drive that does not miss.

She may be old, but she is deceptively more than great!

2001 Nissan Altima

I love the price of the car (absolutely free, given to me from wonderful family friends who knew that I needed a newer vehicle than the one I had.) my car has never had any major problems and if you divide out how many miles are on it currently by year, it only divides out to about 10,000/year, which is pretty good. I keep up with the oil changes and they check everything at that time. Everyone at the oil change place has always told me that my car has a good solid engine and transmission. Just little things here and there that need to be replaced- like the battery, one of the tires- but no major problems at all that would cause great expense. She runs well, so overall I'm happy!

2001 Nissan Altima - Defies It's Years With Quality

2001 Nissan Altima XE

Overall I find my Nissan Altima to be a consistently trouble-free ride. It's low maintenance and remains comfortable and quiet at over 120,000 miles. The ride is smooth and wheel responsive. The brakes can tend to be a bit spongy. The transmission never slips. The paint and interior have weathered very well for a 2001 model; there is very little sign of wear and tear. You have a standard round energy port (AKA, cigarette lighter port) no USB. It comes with CD/radio with very decent speakers. The trunk space is immense and I've never run out of room. The mileage is also quite good in the city and on the highway.
