2001 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima, which was due for a redesign the next year, saw no significant changes for 2001.

The 2000 Altima came in five trims: the base XE, the midrange GXE, the sporty SE and SE Limited, and the luxury GLE. The GXE was the most popular model, and the GLE came standard with leather seating and a power driver's seat. All Altimas in the lineup shared a 2.4 liter, 150 horsepower four cylinder engine. Fuel economy is 21/29 mpg.

Drivers like the 2000 Nissan Altima mostly because it is a good value without feeling cheap. Drivers also praise the car's reliability, comfort, and ample trunk space. Some owners have had trouble with the paint chipping, and some find the styling to be bland inside and out.
