Nissan Altima yr 2002 works fine, however it's had minor maintenance jobs

2002 Nissan Altima Base

The car is used and came with some minor problems. It has needed minor maintenance jobs, but nothing major. The Air conditioner works to date and so do the switches for the windows. In terms of gas, it isn't economical. It wastes gas quickly. When looking at the paint and the seats, they both are still in good condition, so that's good. Whenever pulling into driveways, it scrapes the car given that it's low.

Very good vehicle, not disappointed!!

2002 Nissan Altima Base

Small enough for short people, comfy, cloth seats, beautiful exterior design. The perfect size for a small family. Runs good. Very good on gas can put $20 and can last me all week from work and back. The trunk is huge, I can fit my daughter's stroller in the back along with a bunch of groceries and anything else needed.

Why I hate my 2002 Nissan Altima.

2002 Nissan Altima Base

It honestly has been a nightmare. As soon as I fix whatever is wrong then something else goes wrong and needs to be fixed. I feel like it's always something it needs and I don't feel it's reliable at all and super problematic. I hate this car. And wish I had never got it nor put so much money and time in it.

Title Why to buy a Nissan I bought it with 60 thousand miles. .

2002 Nissan Altima Base

great car runs like a dream very comfortable runs like new little maintenance would recommend to anyone. Even my mechanic said I could not have picked a better vehicle. Only oil changes, tune ups, brakes tires. Just regular maintenance. Never had any problems with it and its eighteen years old.

Nissan Altima, it is very sturdy and even though it is a smaller car it is spacious.

2002 Nissan Altima Base

I got the car used. It looks worn down but it still runs great. Easy to clean and change oils. The only problem I have with it is that the car gets really hot when left out in the sun and on cold nights the glass on the front and back will cloud up and be hard to get rid of.
