Awesome Altima 06 — We bought this in 2011 and it has been our only family car for almost 4 years. It still is our most reliable vehicle for work commute. We love our Alima. Great mileage, nice looks, great comfort. Very low maintenance required.

Great Car; I Love It! — I love this car and I feel very comfortable with it. Personally, there is nothing significant that I dislike about this vehicle. Spare parts are comparatively cheap and easy to find. This car is reliable and very competitive and I would highly recomment it to anybody needing a dependable vehicle.

Pros

Very stylish interior and exterior in my opinion compared to many other 06 sedans. I've always felt safe and comfortable in this car. It's always been reliable especially through snow and rain.

Cons

Road noise is pretty loud

Pretty Great — This car is my first car and I have to say I've had a good amount of compliments about it. It's stylish in my opinion compared to other cars get as their first car. Through rain and snow storms it has been very reliable though it is only front wheel drive. I've only had minimal dislikes of this car such as the fact that it didn't have a radio with an aux cord therefore i had to install an aftermarket radio. The road noise is a bit loud in my opinion but nothing too bad. Other than that this car has treated me great so far. Definitely would recommend.

Pros

BEAUTIFUL car inside and out. Big backseat and font seat. Nice big trunk space as well. Leather cleans up nicely and because it is tan doesn't get to hot

Cons

It really does eat up gas if you have to go long distances, if not then this is perfect. If you are in the car a long time or sitting in traffic expect to only get about 22 miles per gallon if you aren't then you can get closer to 28-30.

Very Sexy Looking Car — Other than gas this car is amazing, we are actually getting another one, maybe two! We love it especially as a family car, with two kids they can have stuff with them in the back and not feel cluttered. The oldest who is 8 can swing her legs and not kick us in the back especially me!

Love It And Hate It All At The Same Time... — I Love how reliable the car is... Hate it because it is so lackluster when it comes to driving it... Decent mpg should be better for a four banger... Plan on getting another one after this one bites the bullet. It has 150 k hoping to get 200k!

8 Out Of 10 Stars — I love driving this car. Good sound, good gas mileage, lots of room, very comfortable. This car handles very well in dry and wet conditions. Too bad the windows in the rear only go down 3/4 of the way..(guess its a satety thing for the kids)

My Bank Has It.. — I love this car. I used for everything. I go to work with it. It is really fun to drive my altima since i added rims, spoiler, sport brakes, bumpers, headlights, taillights, side mirrors, and other stuff. I love it in every way possible.

Amazing Altima. — This car is both safe and fast. Excellent conditions, reasonable price. Perfect choice for commuting to work and family transportation. Owners has just changed the new Michelin tires and done the oil changed, including the transmission fluid. You will never regret buying this car.
