Cons

Terrible — horrible build all around except on the look. decent looking, but everything else was horrible. Even the tests on the car were not much past passing. At first the car was a decent ride, nice driving and looked nice and every one said the car was a good buy. ha what a joke

2002 Altima 2.5 Sl — I love my car! It's better than some of the luxury sedans I've ridden in. It has a driver's power seat, 6 disc changer, Bose system, and power everything else. This car is AWESOME! You should get one. It's fun to drive, has fast acceleration, looks good inside and out, and doesn't cost much at all.

Decent Starter Car — ok looks if you treat it like a sports car the ride is good but on rhode island roads its not that good road noise is loud but the stereo helped with that and the blind spots were average. it was not in the shop often only for a motor swap and that was because of the nature the job it had to perform. it averaged 26 but trip to maine it got 28, sadly in winter it dropped to about 21-23mpg. for this car the mechanic was my father so naturally costs were down but again other than the engine swap and routine maintenance the car was golden. performance wise i couldn't ask for more i love the car for that the most the only performance problem was in the snow even with new all season tires i could not go more than 25 mph with out the car fighting me

Good car for a family sedan.

Cons

Recalls recalls recalls.

Love It, Want Another. — There is some recall issues but other than that it is a good car. It has nice acceleration and the 5 speed transmission makes it fun to drive. It has good gas mileage and requires little work. The brakes work well and it handles like a small car.

Fast, Great Looking, But Poorly And Cheaply Made. — Great Motor, the car pulls like a freight train. Excellent torque and decent MPG as long as you stay out of the pedal Very poor build quality and materials used by Nissan. Plenty of recalls and TSB's out on this car Need for Premium fuel is not a positive.
