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.

2001 Nissan Altima; the Nokia of vehicles

2001 Nissan Altima XE

For a car as old as she us with as many miles as I put into her this little Nissan gets the job done every day. Her gas mileage is wonderful; on a full tank, commuting to work and driving around the city is no problem for the week. The engine purrs, and the transmission is still good! A Nissan is a great car to have I'd you plan on wanting a car that will last twice as long as anyone expects.

2001 Nissan Altima- how it's held up over the years

2001 Nissan Altima XE

My car is an older model so I'm sure the newer models are much nicer but there's not a lot of trunk space, fairly spacious on the inside, sometimes I feel like if I press on the gas pedal while I'm driving the car will break down because I'm going too fast, handles pretty good in the winter, very low to the ground, pretty good gas mileage, A/C works good still.

one time my key broke off in the starter

2001 Nissan Altima XE

My car is older, it didn't drive for a while so it's a little shaky whenever I drive it. Sometimes it doesn't start due to the starter being bad. I've also been told that I need a new belt. But I have no idea what that means. Its works for me getting back on forth to places. It's not reliable but it's okay.

It's not sporty but it's also not a boring family vehicle, so it fits me well

2001 Nissan Altima XE

I really enjoy the push button start and the factory standard radio and speakers. It drives smoothly while handling tight corners and turns with ease. It also came with tinted windows, which I appreciate during the hot summer months. The best part would have to be the fact that it's very fuel efficient.

Good vehicle. Very dependable. Love the car.

2001 Nissan Altima XE

This car has been a very dependable car with so far no problems besides your normal wear and tear such as brake pads needed changed and that is about it. I bought it used from a individual about a year ago and that is all I have done to the car since I have purchased it.

- Susan M

My car is the best car in the world.

2001 Nissan Altima XE

Great vehicle considering the age and miles. Still needs work but is great on gas and general maintenance. Kind of small not enough room for someone 6'0 feet +. I'm happy with this vehicle despite the age and its minor fails. Some parts are hard to find.
