Commuter, Nothing More Nothing Less. — Overall this car is perfect for any beginner looking to start driving, or in my case the daily commute to and from work. The audio system in the car does leave something to be desired, but all in all it is a comfortable, and affordable way to get around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A very affective commuter that I have used daily since first bought, great on fuel, and easy to maneuver.

Cons: Not the best car for Michigan in the winter, and it lacks the power you might want out of a car.

Great Reliable Car — I love this car and feel that it will never let me down. With a new sound system and sunroof, I can go cruising down the road no problem in this car. The only things it lacks are stylish looks and more power.

Pros: Great Gas mileage. Never have to worry about functioning of car while driving. Easy to maintain and easy to drive.

Cons: Not much power. Design is a little odd.

Replaced By A 'toyota Prius. — Just as I was pourin my heart out making sure this car would be trouble free, the wife buys a Toyota Prius, and this one was donated/scrapped when I wasn't there. Aluminum rims, GLE, the deluxe package. Stereo was good.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Dad's car. pretty robust design.

Cons: drive axles had torn boots, distributor was defective. Fuel injectors were gummed up. Inaccessable coolant line required removal of starter just to see it.

Overall:

Good, Dependable, Family Sedan — Laggy throttle but a tank of an engine that will handle much abuse. Truck engine, so it's not dragged down by extra weight. It's almost at 200k with no major motor or tranny work *knock on wood* The seat cushions will deteriorate after a while without any way to adjust the seat besides recline.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: My system, reliability.

Cons: I don't like the way the car sits, the wheels are not wide enough and it feels like they should be stanced out more. too much roll even for a sedan

Great First Car. — First car I owned, had it for 8 years and could not have asked for a better first car. Low maintenance, ran mobile 1 synthetic oil. 230,000 miles and still going strong..for being an automatic I still enjoyed driving it. Great brake performance, handling. Had the car detailed once a year so interior and exterior condition is good. Paint job needs to be waxed once or twice a year. As it was getting up there in mileage the car needed general repairs like a wheel bearing, etc but will still last a long time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, great car.

Cons: automatic?

White Nissan Altima — Originally a California car. Car never let me down. Had to replace a leaking valve cover gasket (existing problem) then right before I sold it, it needed new brakes and it needed the alternator rebuilt (due to faulty battery). Very reliable, torquey engine.

Pros: Looked good, reliable, quick, easy to maintain

Cons: Nothing

My Car — Its my car...I mean whats to say? I drive this thing into the ground. It's a 4 banger so it doesn't have much power, but I still like to pretend it does. It's a fun little car to drive, it gets pretty decent gas mileage and it runs like its supposed to. Now that I have a consistent job, I can treat it as well as it's treated me. You know what I mean? I love my car for what it's worth. Its never given me any real problems, and I appreciate that. Nissan knows how to do cars well. I'd recommend a new or used one.

Pros: Good gas mileage, no major issues

Cons: Lack of power
