Is a 2001 Nissan Altima a reliable car.

I found a 2001 Nissan Altima for $4500 it has 118000 miles on it. I thought it was a good deal and was ready to buy, than some friends started telling me that Altimas are bad cars they need belts changed every certain amount of miles and always has problems. Wanted to know if anyone knows anything about Altimas or has heard the same thing.

they are usually pretty reliable, except ones with 2.4L engines have the tendency to have problems with timing chain tensioners coming apart and throwing the timing off.

in a shop it is over an 11 hour job at $65+ an hour



as for the belts, belts are a wear item on all vehicles

Thats a very good deal. my uncle used to have one and he said it was reliable, comfortably interior, and well ran on road.
