I Would Definately Own This Car Again Because It Was So Good On Gas And Sounded Good. — This car had good acceleration, good braking, and good handling. It needed motors in all the windows they did not roll up or down. The interior was good it was kinda water stained. The exterior was great, no dents. Gas mileage was great. I loved driving this car because of the loud muffler.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I loved tachin out the rpms in front of people.

Cons: I hated that the windows did not roll up.

Great Starter Car — I bought it for $1200 and it was a great car. 5 speed manual, and for a compact car, it had good performance. AC could be colder but it's fine and it's R134, so its easy to refill. Good handling, fun to drive. I would definitely buy another again in a heartbeat. I loved this car and it was an amazing running car, especially for $1200, with 170,000 miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Decent space for a compact, fuel economy could have been better. I averaged 26mpg which is okay, considering it has a larger engine and my driving would probably be 65% city, 35% highway.  Still enjoyed driving it anytime. Handled well.  Design is alright, a little round and bland, but alright.  No repairs necessary, consumed a minimal amount of oil.  Good acceleration. Good braking, even without ABS. Safe and secure while driving. FUN to drive. WAY more than '93 Ford Taurus, '03 Civic DX, and even '06 Saturn Ion. Then again, all those had automatic transmissions.

Cons: Can get a bit tight for four to five full size adults on a long trip,  Center console and glovebox could have been developed better, though.

Not Okay To Be Driven! Ever! — It breaks down every week! I hate having to get this car fixed so often. Not exaggerating, it needs repair every 1 and 1/2 to 2 months. It's fun to drive because of the speed. I want a new car! (More specifically a 2010 Nissan GT-R)(Pretty please)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Okay Speed

Cons: Appearance

Comfort Without Luxury. — If you are looking for a car that won't leave your pockets empty while still being comfortable and have decent performance, the Altima is a win. I managed to go up to 200km/h with this ride without having an accident. The suspension is a bit too soft which means the road holding is not at it's best but it's not designed to be a sport car anyway. Seats are comfortable. Some issues with the transmission as it's a bit harshy on 1st to 2nd gear. I used to make less than 500km with a 55L tank which is unacceptable but understandable for a car that has some age. Engine is good and has good throttle response but the transmission is a pain in the ass. Standard equipment is good for the time, with all the electric group (power windows, power locks, A/C etc). I recommand this car because it's cheap to buy while still giving you a lot for your money.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfort, equipment

Cons: it's old lol and hard on gas

First Gen Altima — I owned this car at the end of it's life anyways. I have no fair opinion. I liked the car, it was very quick for a four door sedan. has the same motor as the 240sx. very comfortable. the gxe I had had all the power options I could want. didn't put a lot of maintenance into it and that was what eventually killed it.

Pros: performance

Cons: dollar value, rear end is not terribly attractive.

Fun Little Car — I paid 800 for the car and spent 200 in repairs so far. It had 214,000 on it when I bought it and now it has 245,000 and still runs great. It's front wheel drive, so I can break the tires loose around almost any corner that I have encountered so far.

Pros: it has great power

Cons: the more wieght, the less the power

Good With My System — Well, since it's not a car you can go offroading in, I added simply a nice system. It sounds good and thats why Overall, its better than the rest of my categories. Its fun to drive just cause it has a bumpin system. The only thing I am a little sketchy about now is when I drove up here to college it starts shaking a bit around 85.

Pros: SYSTEM

Cons: shaker @ 85 mph
