I have questions.

Postby Varel » Fri Feb 07, 2020 10:44 am

To make a long story short, I'm looking for a budget commuter that I wont hate driving. I'm somewhat partial to Nissan though mostly because I was in love with the Titan from day 1 and briefly owned one (another long story). One of my best friends has a 2017 Altima and absolutely loves it.

So anyway, I came across two 2001 Maximas. Both look like they rolled off the showroom yesterday. They are truly the 2 best looking older cars I've ever seen. The first one is auto with only 92k miles. The other is a manual but it has 180k miles. However, the manual car has new alternator, springs/struts, inner tie rod ends, lower A arms (bushings/ball joints), obviously an alignment, new clutch and flywheel, and a new front valve cover all within the past year according to the seller.

I have a color preference but the winner in that department also come with the auto and I want the manual. Both are asking the auto is listed at $2800 and the stick at $3000. I thought I'd ask the experts which one would be the better buy. If either. I noticed the '02 gets a new engine with a big power bump and the same fuel economy. It would pretty much only get used when it's raining or cold as I prefer to commute in the motorcycle.

Also, if I do get one is there anything I need to know?

Sorry but Management does not allow links to competing websites

While the NICO Administration tries very hard to avoid censoring or removing posts, posts or threads can be removed for any number of reasons. The most common reasons are:
  1. Linking to a forum that competes with NICO. While this may seem silly, NICO exists due to the enormous flow of traffic that enters the site. Without this, the resource would cease to exist.

I checked at... that other site. But it seems less active. Which is why I posted here initially. Thanks for the suggestion.

Less active overall perhaps, but much more specific Gen 5 information at your disposal.

With your permission, I’d be happy to repost/trans-post your question.

Thanks for the offer. I actually went ahead and posted there when it was initially suggested though.
