Pros

Tons of leg room front and back, can fit tons of stuff in the trunk, can also take sharp turns going decently fast, great for a family of 4 or 5. Just to mant to name.

Cons

Light Weight, if you're passing a semi you're likely to feel it. Also due to this light weight you tend to fish tail on dirt roads. Also due to this light wieght you cant gain traction on ice/2.5 engines also had trouble starting up in the cold (below 0). It doesn't get the greastest fuel usage either 25 highway 19 in city. Great take off but not great for anything else power wise.

Great Vechicle Everyone Should Drive Atleast One. — Overall this has been a great vechicle to me. Treat it well and it'll last you a while. Great for road trips if you don't mind spending a little more on gas. It'll seat 5 people, with leg room, which makes it great for long road trips. Easy to drive and handle. Just be careful and keep in mind its light weight. Passing semi's will cause the cab to sway.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Handling, Appearance, Gas Mileage

Cons

Torque Steer

45

Altima — Most powerful 4 cylinder sedan I've ever driven. Acceleration feels better than most late 90s model V6's. Handling is great but torque steer is a bit out of control so for all you race enthusiasts out there, hold on to the steering wheel. This car looks great and is fun to drive, without spending too much at the gas pump.

Great — Looks great, drives great, feels great. I've only had this car a few weeks so far. Picked up the car at a great price too. Handles really well and has a quality of build that's so really nice. Leather seats are a neat change too.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Altima - Maximillian — i love how sleek the car looks, as well as the size. i wish the seats were leather. its great on gas, 4-cyl engine, but it doesnt have the punch of a 6-cyl. i want that. maintenance on the car is definitely affordable, just a pain

Pros

VQ35 motor!! - Torque, Handling, Minimal Road Noise, Cargo space, Reliable, Gas consumption for a V6!

Cons

Very little aftermarket parts - then again, why would you want to do anything to this car?

35

This Car Is Fast, Reliable And Solid! — VQ35 - what else could you ask for? Award winning for the past 10 years!. Used on Nissan Altimas, Maximas, Muranos, 350Z, G35, M35, FX35, EX35. Why wouldn't Nissan/Infiniti do this with such a reliable motor? The Altima 3.5SE is packed with features and without a doubt a powerful motor that can hold its own on the road. The room doesn't fall short of your needs no matter who is in your car. The torque is awesome. Full load and no problems! Love my nissan!

Pros

Roomy, comfortable ride, and powerful engine

Cons

Manual gearbox is unforgiving

Perfect Family Car With A Large Interior — Test drove this car before buying my G35. If you are considering this car, skip the manual gearbox and go with the automatic version. This car is meant to be a family car with a large interior. Lots of leg room in the back seats. Huge trunk space. Visibility is one of the best of all the car I have driven. The ride is very comfortable. Powerful V6 engine.

Pros

Great acceleration and good on gas mileage

Cons

Handling was not all that great

45

2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 Sl — Loved it when I had rims on. 20" really look amazing on there and give the car great handling. Once the rims were off, handling was not all that great anymore. Loved the interior of the car and the outside clasy look.
