Great Car! — The 2004 Nissan Altima is a very great car on gas. it is a 4 cylinder. This car can be used as family or individual. It has a very good shape on the outside. In general it is a great car.

Pros

Great fuel economy, fits me and all my friends, space for a big dog too if you have one! Easy to clean, easy to maintain, parts are inexpensive, overall amazing car.

Cons

Only downside I can see is that it lacks in power and it doesn't come in a manual transmission. And the black interior holds a bit too much heat, but you can solve that easily. I'm just cheap and don't want to spend that money.

Great Car And Easy To Own! — Great fuel economy, fits me and all my friends, space for a big dog too if you have one! Easy to clean, easy to maintain, parts are inexpensive, overall amazing car. This one personally needed a little TLC when I got it, but it's been perfect ever since I've put all the work in. Only downside I can see is that it lacks in power and it doesn't come in a manual transmission. And the black interior holds a bit too much heat, but you can solve that easily.

Great First Car, Great Family Car — I liked how comfortable this car is to drive. It's very fast for its age and has a lot of room for passengers and trunk space. I don't have to fill up on gas very often which is also very nice.

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.

great on gas, great steering, stylish body for a sedan, roomie backseat

continental tires are hard to find, must order. air filter has to be replaced nearly every yr - not expensive just annoying

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

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.

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?

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!

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.

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.
