Great Car, No Real Downfalls — I love the 1998 Nissan Altima! When built, it had the most powerful engine in it's class, and you can definitely tell that when you drive it... except when you run the air conditioner. :-P Braking isn't that great--mine doesn't have power brakes or ABS so sometimes you do need to put some effort into stopping. As far as the interior, it feels EXTREMELY spacious for the size of the car, and there is plenty of leg and headroom for everyone. The seats are comfortable and everything is well-planned and functional. For the exterior, I have an SE so it has really nice wheels and I love the spoiler, although other trim levels of the car without the spoiler look really plain. Additionally, this car has needed nothing but regular maintenance and has had no serious problems yet (I'm so proud of it), and even with 116,000 miles, I still get 25 mpg. In the end, this is one of those cars that you will get and love, and I would like to add that since it was my first car, I will probably be extremely loyal to the Nissan brand in the future because this car is great.

Pros: Performance, Comfort, Reliability

Cons: Lack of power brakes, some materials seem cheap

Very Reliable Auto. — Even after hitting a deer at 60 mph, I was able to drive the remaining 30 miles home at 3am in the morning. The radiator was toast, but the car never overheated.

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Noisy interior.  Hard to use a cell phone while driving.

Fun To Drive, For A Sedan. — This car was overall pretty reliable and kind of fun to drive(5 speed). No major problems with it until I paid it off and the bushing around the axle in the transmission housing blew out, that was only $1300 to repair. Overall the car was in the shop much more often than my Lexus. Lots of money spent on repairs.

Pros: 5 speed trans shifted smooth, good handling, decent amount of power

Cons: Transmission repair, some reliability issues, bland exterior and interior

Owner for 4 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:12,000

Pros: Good Gas Milege

Cons: Electrical Problems hard to figure out cause, and how to fix
