    A Car That Keeps Going And Still Looks Good. — The Altima has taken me all over the place. I'm surprised by how much stuff can really fit and yet the car can still operate the same. Although it's only a 2.4L engine it was designed as a truck motor so it has an abundance of torque and power for the size of the car. The SE model is nice with leather and moonroof which makes the drives comfortable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The mileage was great, averaging 25-30mpg even with 200k+ miles. Maintenance was typically easy and minimal. Last generation of solid built cars.

    Cons: Seem to be replacing the alternator about every year or sooner. Stereo in these are fair but nothing exciting.

    Good Fun Car For The Money — performance? Laughable compared to most other vehicles but i like the steering and brake feel. feels very light. build quality? good enough. its got some odd squeaks and rattles but i think most of it is because it just over 200,000 miles on it and has been wrecked several times, aka hit Deer, hit black ice into ditch, someone drunk sideswiped it and numerous other animals. Appearance? not bad, rear looks kinda weird, like it was a hatchback then they decided to change it to a sedan by extending the back just a little bit. Cost of Ownership? good bough used very cheap. unfortunantly it need fixing up a bit. new timing belt, reworked brakes, and new engine mounts. gets very good gas mileage, as in 30-34 mpg. not bad. Fun Factor? For an old worn out car it is extremely fun to drive, underpowered but very peppy little engine, going through the gears is so much fun though, i think thats the funest part of it, kust feeling that wonderful steering and fun little engine windup then changing gears and doing it all over again!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Feel of the steering and brakes, that awesome 5spd manual.

    Cons: not the most powerful, slightly loud road noise inside the cabin.

    Makes A Great First Car. — I got mine as a first car in '08 with 68,000 km on it. At first it was kinda sluggish, made a lot of noise. Once I got a K&N air filter in it and a little fuel injector cleaner running through the engine, it was running like a champ. Recently added slotted/cross-drilled rotors to the front brakes (absolutely amazing difference). Also, tons of trunk space is very handy if you like to go camping. Only major repairs/replacements I've had to make on the car thus far were the alternator, distributor (and wires) and the suspension at around 72,000 - 78,000 km which is reasonable. The handling is even better now. My chief complaint with the build quality is a lot of really dumb little things like placement of bolts and such which make certain repairs more labour intensive, such as when the alternator needed to be replaced, it was very difficult to remove it from its brackets. The front end is too low and tends to scrape the bumper on steep driveway entrances. As far as performance goes, handling is great, its got a lot of kick off the line, gas mileage is a little mediocre in cooler temperatures (14-16 MPG in winters in the city, 20-23 in warmer weather), and with alloy rims on it, its a real pleasure to drive. Its fast and fun for a little 2.4L engine.

    Pros: Its a lot of fun for a low price.

    Cons: Tends to be very noisy when going over speed bumps/humps, etc.

    My Alty — for a 4 banger it has decent acceleration. taking into consideration im the third owner repairs are pretty routine. the engine will last forever. currently there is 127xxx miles on the engine and it runs beautifully. i love the look of the car, and i get compliments all the time. i just put fogs and new wheels on and it helped.

    Pros: alot

    Cons: four banger

    Poop Look Buildable Motor And Granny Interior — Acceptable for getting around, buildable but so uglie is it really worth it? the only good part is the ka24de(240sx motor) with has a lot of parts out there for it. I can't complain for a first car but nothin im proud of.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cause it runs

    Cons: rear end is absoululy hideous

    A Good Car That Has Given Me No Major Problems. — Its got a 4 cylinder engine so its not the fastest car but it does alright. Build quality is good, and appearance is great because it has been maintained well. Very cheap to own, never had any major problems just normal wear and tear issues that come with any older car. Not the funnest car, but not the most boring car either.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Its cheap to own and very reliable.

    Cons: Not the fastest car.

    I Think It's A Great Car And Even Better For Moms. :) — I think the car fits me well. I think it is great for people who have kids and don't want the mini van. It has a large trunk and you can still add modifications to make it look sporty. It's a great car as long as you keep the right fluids in it and perform oil changes on time.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nissans are great cars!

    Cons: If they do break down it's expensive to fix.  Have the same motor as Lexus I believe.

    Let's See If In 10 Years It Becomes A Classic. — I hate that there are no cheap spare parts. The main controller of the power windows is starting to fail, and the only option I have is the Official Dealership. A very fun car to drive, really. Very fast on the road.

    Pros: Comfortable and fast on the road

    Cons: Spare parts.
