Car Displayed: 1998 Nissan Altima GXE 2.4L 4 Cyl.

The 1998 Nissan Altima GXE is a moderately easy vehicle to maintain and a good choice for any vehicle owner. The components of the spare tire are easily accessible in the rear of the vehicle. This keeps the tire and jack kit ready to go in case of emergency. Changing the headlight with reliability is no problem, as you only have to reach behind the housing for access to the assembly. The tail light bulbs are easy to access on this vehicle, as you only have to peel back one easy to remove lining in the rear of the vehicle for access.

Some things are problematic on the 1998 Nissan Altima GXE. You will need to use a few tools in order to completely remove the front turn signal housing for access to the bulb. Changing the center brake light can be tough, as you will have to work in a cramped space for access to the bulb. The level markers are not overly visible on the coolant reservoir, which will make it hard to check and replenish the fluid level on a regular basis.
