Great Car For Trips And Daily Transportation — Love this car. Very little maintenance beyond routine oil changes, etc. Love the flip down rear seats into the trunk for carrying larger items. The car looks classy when going upscale, but is serviceable for a daily commute in SoCal.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Flip down rear seats to trunk. Large trunk. very comfortable dashboard arrangement.

Cons: Fuel economy is OK

My First Japwagon — This thing is pretty good. Coming from only having 80s and 90s cars, it's a major step up in technology. It gets really nice fuel mileage, and it's pretty quick too. It's comfy and I can actually go for rides with friends on our days off. Overall, a nice investment.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, good mpgs, and spacious.

Cons: I'm gonna be paying for it til 2017

Great Vehicle — The color is beautiful and I love the interior. Very dependable and pretty car because the new bodys are hideous in my opinion... much too bubbly and futuristic cheap look. The new ones are a lot better on gas. My best friend just bought a new one because she loved mine, and she drives it for like eight hours and her gas needle barely moves. I love this car and recommend it to everyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great, quick , and spacious.

Cons: A lot of them on road.. not really a con though.

Love It!! — When I found this car on the dealer lot back in 2005 I couldn't afford it but wanted it as bad as a Snoop needs a Dogg. A very hard car to find used. I've now had mine for more than two years and love it to pieces. Huge interior for a vehicle of this class, (remember Nissan's "4 door sports car?), and has better interior/exterior finish than any other 3rd generation Altima. I autocrossed it last year. Took third place in GS class it's that good of a road car. Ask for it to blow past the car holding you up on a backroad two-lane and it's done. Better be prepared for torque-steer though. 260+ horsepower through the front wheels can be a handful with the amount of twisting force grabbing for pavement. The brakes are so-so and could be better but most drivers would not use as much stopping force as an autocrosser would. The steering is spot on too. So fast that you have to 'pre-think' your sneezes. All in all, the 3rd generation SE-R is a blast to drive. A true driver's car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast, Powerful and corners like a cat with long claws.

Cons: fuel econ.

Pros: Roomy car for family of four, great on gas with zero maintenance problems

Cons: mint green

Nissan Daily Driver — The car is a good back and forth to work driver. Its very under powered but so are most 4 cyl. cars. Best advise is to run synthetic oil and bosch platinum 4 spark plugs with high performance coils. Also, tune up in a bottle is great to run about once a month to keep down on the carbon build up away.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Get good mpg on long trips or back and forth to work

Cons: low power especially in the wind

Nissan Altima — It's been a great vechicle for the purposes I use it for. All around solid car, affordable, cheap on gas, and low maintenance. After owning a Mustang, this car almost paid for itself in the money I save on gas and maintenance.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to Drive, comfortable, all around solid vehicle

Cons: for the price and type there's really no cons
