One Title — Loved everything about the car except that I needed to buy a new car. Had the car for over ten years. Car was very reliable and still drives very good. Hard to get rid of but it was time to.

Last Of Its Kind — This car was the last good Altima built. It features standard options with leather, decent performance for a car of its class, and is very reliable. The car has been pushed hard, and yet never showed any problems. Acceleration from 0-60 is between 9-10 seconds, which was okay for its time. The handling and breaking is impressive for a FWD sedan in its class. The design still holds well for an 8-year-old car. The new Altimas improved in designs and performance, but Nissan has degraded the materials they use to a subpar level. There have also bee reliability issues with the newer models. This is unfortunate for a company that use to build such great vehicles. Overall, this is a great car and I hope Nissan can recover from its recent mistakes.

Makes A Great First Car. — I got mine as a first car in '08 with 68,000 km on it. At first it was kinda sluggish, made a lot of noise. Once I got a K&N air filter in it and a little fuel injector cleaner running through the engine, it was running like a champ. Recently added slotted/cross-drilled rotors to the front brakes (absolutely amazing difference). Also, tons of trunk space is very handy if you like to go camping. Only major repairs/replacements I've had to make on the car thus far were the alternator, distributor (and wires) and the suspension at around 72,000 - 78,000 km which is reasonable. The handling is even better now. My chief complaint with the build quality is a lot of really dumb little things like placement of bolts and such which make certain repairs more labour intensive, such as when the alternator needed to be replaced, it was very difficult to remove it from its brackets. The front end is too low and tends to scrape the bumper on steep driveway entrances. As far as performance goes, handling is great, its got a lot of kick off the line, gas mileage is a little mediocre in cooler temperatures (14-16 MPG in winters in the city, 20-23 in warmer weather), and with alloy rims on it, its a real pleasure to drive. Its fast and fun for a little 2.4L engine.

I Wish I Still Had This Car. Though It May Be Nostalgia As Much As Anything. — I think I broke facebook. I just typed a nice review and it deleted it. I will type it again anyway. This is Dusty, my first car. While I don't have much comparsion, just my 2003 Nissan Sentra, I really loved this car. I had no choice on her, my parents signed a lease, brought her home and handed me a bill. They wanted a new car because they wanted something that would start every day and that wouldn't cost me a ton in constant repairs. It fulfilled that requirement. In fact, all I did besides oil changes was a brake replacement (and since I was a new driver, it was probably just me) and fixing a flat or two (once again probably my new driver-ness and the amount of miles I put on the car). Compared to the Sentra, there are lots of nice asethic things I didn't realize how much I appreciated until I didn't have them anymore- I loved having cupholders in the middle (they didn't block the air/radio/console controls), I liked that the glove box locked (and didn't open with the valet key), and the fact that the radio had a bar that showed where the volume was at.

Poop Look Buildable Motor And Granny Interior — Acceptable for getting around, buildable but so uglie is it really worth it? the only good part is the ka24de(240sx motor) with has a lot of parts out there for it. I can't complain for a first car but nothin im proud of.

Pros

Feel of the steering and brakes, that awesome 5spd manual.

Cons

not the most powerful, slightly loud road noise inside the cabin.

Good Fun Car For The Money — performance? Laughable compared to most other vehicles but i like the steering and brake feel. feels very light. build quality? good enough. its got some odd squeaks and rattles but i think most of it is because it just over 200,000 miles on it and has been wrecked several times, aka hit Deer, hit black ice into ditch, someone drunk sideswiped it and numerous other animals. Appearance? not bad, rear looks kinda weird, like it was a hatchback then they decided to change it to a sedan by extending the back just a little bit. Cost of Ownership? good bough used very cheap. unfortunantly it need fixing up a bit. new timing belt, reworked brakes, and new engine mounts. gets very good gas mileage, as in 30-34 mpg. not bad. Fun Factor? For an old worn out car it is extremely fun to drive, underpowered but very peppy little engine, going through the gears is so much fun though, i think thats the funest part of it, kust feeling that wonderful steering and fun little engine windup then changing gears and doing it all over again!

four banger

My Alty — for a 4 banger it has decent acceleration. taking into consideration im the third owner repairs are pretty routine. the engine will last forever. currently there is 127xxx miles on the engine and it runs beautifully. i love the look of the car, and i get compliments all the time. i just put fogs and new wheels on and it helped.
