My particular 1998 Nissan Altima GXE, in many ways, is yet another in a long line of reliable, affordable, high mpg vehicles from the Land of the Rising Sun. With a 2.5L engine, this 150hp sedan boasts a 24 city and 31 highway mpg, amazing for its time and still highly competitive even nearly two decades later. Make no mistake, this car is more than capable for the financially conscious who need a car, not for glamor or luxury, but purpose built to get to where you need to be. The car is on the smaller end of econo-sedans, but does well with ample trunk space and one fold down rear seat for more longer types of cargo.
Story
This was my first car, so naturally my fondness for it (and my bias for this review, to be frank), should be clear. In a town and place where many of cars teenagers drove were on the borderline between totaled and completely useless, this car was a dream. I learned to love it and to take care of it; Sundays became a ritual to take it to the car wash and clean out the insides.
Pros
This slightly smaller size provides many subtle benefits sorely missed in vehicles of similar class from the 2010s and the foreseeable future, in that, the car is light, responsive, every window/viewport gives excellent visibility for drivers of any stature. Cars nowadays come standard with proximity sensors and rear facing cameras, but don't be fooled by these bells and whistles; they are additional gadgets that exist to COMPENSATE for poor visibility from increasingly strict safety regulations, nevermind that additional tech will always in turn mean for more things, especially electronic...

Cons
At this point, the only clear negative of the car would have to be its age. Any available 1998 Altima surely cannot be in the best of conditions, especially when considering the car's intended role. Newer cars are surely safer to drive, have better fuel efficiency, are more green if that's a concern of yours, but if value is something that you value, be advised to take into consideration other models and makes within the most popular of driving niches.

I would describe the car as basic. It has some issues but all-in-all no major repairs have been necessary in the 6 years that I have owned it. It is comfortable to drive for the most part, gets good gas mileage, starts when I need it to, and has never broken down on the side of the road. The car is reliable, but not particularly peppy. The acceleration is rather poor, it doesn't have the best traction in wet or snowy conditions, and it can be rather noisy at high speeds. Also, for some reason when idling, it makes a growling sound. I don't know what causes it, but once I put it in park it stops. I should have that issue looked at, but it isn't a pressing issue and the car has been reliable that I'm not too concerned about getting this one issue looked at. I would say if you are looking...

Story
There is a big dip near my house, I like going up and down in my car because it is so low to the ground.
Pros
I like that the car is reliable. I've never broken down while driving it, nor has it needed any major repairs. Also I would consider the car fairly comfortable. My car has a multi-position driver's seat so it is very adjustable. Also, the seats are surprisingly comfortable given how basic the car is. Lastly, it has heated seats which are really nice in the winter. Climate control is also a plus. It has dual climate zones so the driver and passenger can adjust the temperature to his or her liking. I don't know how useful that is given how small the car is, but at least from a psychological ... (more)
Cons
The car isn't the peppiest, acceleration is anemic and it doesn't like to go very fast. The wiper controls are odd.

When I was looking for a vehicle and had it narrowed down to Nissan, the Lansing Nissan dealership offered me a better price compared to another dealership hours away. This was extremely convenient. The entire process from paperwork to being handed the keys took no time at all and everyone there was more than friendly. They made sure I understood everything and answered all my questions. I always service my vehicle there which takes no time at all and all for a great price.

The salesperson, Bobby Groulx, treated me like family throughout the entire purchase. He looked into what was wrong with the air conditioner for me, and seemed like he genuinely cared about getting me a good car. I was very satisfied also with the owner, who met with me when I went in to sign the papers. Overall it was a very positive experience.
