Durability — This is can last for years; the bulit is durable and easy to maintain. The car alerts you when something is wrong. Smail enough to park in tight spots. The moon sunroof allows the sun and fresh air through out the car in hot summer days. The leather seat is easy to clean.

Pros

I don't think there much to say regarding reasons to drive this car considering that they don't make 1999s any more but, driving it as a used car if the miles are low it should make a buy purchase.

Cons

Considering that it's a used car on top reason is that there's higher chance of it breaking down.

It's A Smooth Ride, And Has Decent Mpg. — This car is an old car. The car runs alright for a 12 year old. It has needed repaires but it is an old car so naturally it would need repairs and it rattles. I appreciated the way it runs. It didn't cost much. The car is very fun to drive of course it's always fun to drive a car that you own.

Pros

Good running engine and reliable long term vehicle

Cons

Thin sheet metal will rust without maintence

45

I Would Buy Another One, It Makes A Good Long Term Vehicle — Performance wise, this car has terrible Hp and torque, the handling is fairly good and the engine is easy to work on and will run for a long time. As far as Build Quailty, the car is well done overall. however it does have the thinest sheet metal which causes rust problems. Apperence, the intrior is clean and simple, nothing fancy, the exterior is nicley designed but the styles of the front and rear seem like they shouldn't both be on the same car. Cost of ownership is minimal the car needs little repairs and gas mileage is average. This car is not ment to be a fun car it is meant to be a realistic family car 4 door good size trunk and cheap to maintain. Even with the minor repairs, overall it is a good reliable car

Peppy engine with the 5 speed

Cons

rust

Reliable. — Most reliable car I've ever owned. One of 50 sold in the US with a manual transmission. At 146000 miles it still has the original clutch. No squeaks or rattles, and a great highway cruiser. My only gripe about this car is that it is rusting...bottom of passenger door is pretty bad

5 Star; Highly Recommend — 5 Star Quality / Performance / Reliability / Cost of Ownership / Fun 5 Star Overall - A Gem Only two drawbacks: Seat angle is uncomfortablefor long drives, wide turning radius. Still not tired of this car after 10+ years. Unbelievable that it has quicker acceleration and less road noise than many new cars I have been test driving (VW, Acura, Toyota - initial acceleration delays).

Saves Me Dough And Gets Me Where I Need To Go — The Car is Ugly but it gets about 31 miles to the gallon and never breaks down. I keep the oil changed and the tires full and it saves me a ton of money altough it lacks style it is certainly a quality car that is durable and dependable. Nice.

Compact and fun to drive

Cons

Could use a lot more power

My '99 Nissan Altima — Handles nice and not bad for a 4 cylinder. We thought it was a 6 cylinder when we bought it only to find out it only had 4 later on. Probably wouldn't have spent as much if we knew it was a 4. Car dealer wouldn't take it back either. I've never really liked the car and gave it to my sister to use while in school. Could use a lot more power.

A Good First Car If You Are Willing To Work With It — This is the first car I have ever purchased and it has lasted . It is really easy to drive, it has few mechanical problems and has great space for passangers and luggage. I like Nissans so I am proud of the fact that it is one too

I Miss Her... — I loved this car. I had it three years before my stupid misuse/under maintenancing of the vehicle cracked the head. I once got from Norman, Oklahoma to Austin, Texas with an eight to a quarter tank to drive around with. She was extremely fuel efficient on the highway. She seemed a little easy to spin out though, especially on bad tires. great car...
