2003 Nissan Altima 3.5se — This car was the first MY of that generation. The motor is the same as what is in the 350Z. Had good gas mileage, but it is simply a family car. Not fun to drive. Good family car though, would recommend for someone who wants something reliable and has good power. Was good for long trips. Comfortable ride.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good Family car, good power, good gas mileage

Cons: Interior was falling apart, creaked and ratlled.

Fine Car! — The acceleration of this car is impressive, braking responses very well too, handling average since the car is kinda tall, have a high center of mass. The seats are not really comfortable, build qualities are fine. The engine is the best of this car, it really gives the power. This car can definitely kiss some asses on the road, fun!

Pros: good engine, good accelerations

Cons: handling, seats are not comforable

2003 Nissan Altima 3.5se —

Well I bought this car for the motor. It's almost bullet proof. the vq35de motor is the vq30de evolved, think nissan 300zx. The Nissan V6 is in everything from their minivan to the 350z. Power is excellent with 245hp and weighting in around 3,200lbs which gives it almost 13lbs per horsepower ratio. The car is perfect for my family of 4 and extremely roomy. Trunk space is huge and both windows up front having auto up /down is nice too. Hold unlock on the key fob and both front windows go down. Now the negative...the build quality of the interior isn't the greatest nothing major and it really doesn't even bother me. Tires...tires...tires, it eats them! the 4 speed automatic is very weak as I'm on my 2nd one. BUY THE EXTENDED WARRANTY as my transmission died at 75k. Torque steer is severe (this is when you smash the gas and the car jumps to the right). Long trips you will almost get 30mpg and mixed driving I get anywhere from 18- 24mpg premium gas is preferred! Car is a total blast to drive specially on the highway as you have more than enough power to merge or make that quick pass!

Pros: power, roomy, trunk space, fun

Cons: auto transmission, build quality of interior

2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 S — I own a 2003 Nissan Altima with the 2.5 S.... This is a good car, it rides like a dream, and handles like one too, Its very good on gas, And is easily upgradable with many after market parts. Parts are relatively cheap, and the customer service is beyond anythin ive ever seen from a dealer.

Pros: Performance, Handling, Driveability

Cons: Catalytic Converter and Header is a one piece unit...Stupid Idea

My Altima — It's a very reliable car and I only have to change the oil about every 5000 miles...other than replacing the battery once in 5 years, it's never had to have anything major done to it! And best of all, it's PAID FOR!

Pros: Mint condition, great gas mileage, comfortable

Cons: It's not a Bentley

My First Car — My car sucks.....when i bought it, it was dirty inside the compartment by the handbrake. I learned form this experience. and it slipped out of gear a couple of times. It's slow but i guess I like it because it IS my first car...I do appreciate the cold AC...i guess

Pros: not much

Cons: a hell of a lot
