    Best Investment I Had Purchased From Nissan.... — Purchased out of Las Vegas, Nv new. Replaced 2 batteries, 2nd set of tires and drive belt. No other problems with this vehicle. Love the way it handles and the response when you hit the throttle. Great gas mileage as well

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nicely designed

    Cons: No problems yet as of 6 years old..

    The Altima Is A Reliable Vehicle For Travel, Fun Or Family! — low maintenance, I love my car! The only thing that went wrong was the neuatral safety switch or park shift interlock(not sure witch); I have to keep something in there to allow it to shift, have not had the time to take it in or call about it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: it drives very nice and has been totally reliable

    Cons: NOTHING

    Overall A Good Car That Has Served Me Well, Fun For Spirited Driving Yet Reliable For Everyday Use — The 6 speed makes this car, the automatic is not very good. If one can drive this car (which I can) you will smoke all automatic 350z's no problem. Build quality is good all the touch points are taken care of a few squeaks and rattles but the car is 5 years old. Interior and Exterior are very well thought out and quite a classy upgrade from the 3.5SE. The seats are phenomenal and very comfortable and only available with the SE-R. The car has been trouble free since I have owned it and and averages 22.5MPG with my spirited driving. It is very fun to drive considering it can me a family truckster/grocery getter

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style, Performance, Exclusivity

    Cons: Manual can get annoying with everyday driving, nothing else

    Love It. — Gas Mileage sucks after modifying stock air intake. Overall, Love the ruggedness of this car, its good looking sporty, smooth, and meant to be driven everyday! There is a lot of room for modifications with this nissan, and it is a very good built chassis.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The Se-R taillights are sexy, and its a quick car!

    Cons: Clumsy around corners , loose steering.

    Like It But Will Get An Suv Next — Fast, fun to drive, decent on gas. A little too low for me. I like an SUV better, feels safer. It is a fairly cheap car to operate and own. Very reliable and doesn't burn much gas when you don't stand on it too much!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fun

    Cons: not an suv

    Awesome Sedan. — Great sedan. Nice leather seats, wood inlays, all the usual creature comforts, and great performance and handling. Is there any more I can say. Probably. But the best way of describing this car is that its a great everyday commuter.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: What can I say other than that Nissan always builds good passenger vehicles.

    Cons: Would have loved the factory navi unit in this but I can always add a portable one to it.
