    If You Want A Sporty Car That's Not A Camry Or Accord, Get This. — My Nissan Altima S is overall a good car. My model is the 4 cylinder, which I have in a stick shift. It's fast for a 4 banger. Handling is a little sloppy, but its because of the tires that are mounted on the car. It has a good ride. Barely had to do anything other than routine maintenance. Interior is a little cheap. Glad I got it used. I am pleased with the car

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: low maintenance so far, fun to drive

    Cons: a common car, not to many features on my trim level

    Great Car For The Everyday Life. — I should have gone for the 3.5 with a bigger engine although the 4cyl is AMAZING ON GAS! The price tag of $16,000 when I bought it was very reasonable as well. Loads of trunk and storage space too and I would recommend this to everyone...as long as you aren't looking to race anytime soon.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very nice curves and extremely comfortable on long drives.

    Cons: Acceleration.

    If I Didn't Have My Cadillac, I Would Buy Another Nissan Altima. — Performance - outstanding, gas mileage incredible (around 36 mpg), Very solid car, rare problems with it. Appearance, very sexy, stylish. Comfortable ride, controls in easy access. Very easy car to handle, although with a 4 cylinder, you think you've got a 6 instead, although it is available. Just a really wonderful car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: A good family car, good for traveling.

    Cons: Nothing

    All Around Good Purchase — This is a very well made car and drives fantastic. The Nissan is a luxury car compared to my old Mazda Protege. The appearance of the car is outstanding, and looks great for both guys and the gals. The performance is not absolutely amazing, but for the type of commuting car that it is... the performance is above average. If you live in the city and you have to go to and from places in a fast pace nature then this car is worth the money. Stop and go power is superb. The features that I bought with my car keep me satisfied everyday. I would be lost without my GPS now, and it helps know where my next venture is and able to get their faster. The interior leather seats and heated option during the winter is nice, and comes in handy of course too. I enjoy driving my car everyday no matter what the day has in store for me. Maintenance is relatively low.... I only wish it got a little better gas mileage! Besides not being a exotic/sports car this car is a whole bunch of fun! If you are into music then get some bose speakers they sound great! overall score is a 7.5 out of 10.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: easy to drive and very relaxed and comfortable

    Cons: mileage could be a little better and better accelleration

    Pros: Bose sound system. Handling

    Cons: 4 cylinder automatic

    Great Car! — I have a 2.5 S with custom rims and spoiler. It has been a pretty solid car for me. I bought it used in 2006 with 25K and now have 100K miles on it. It has great acceleration and power for a 2.5L 4 cylinder with 175HP. Almost everyone cannot believe that it is a 4 cylinder! Most of the power can be attributed to Nissan’s CVT Transmission, which is awesome and stands apart from its competitors. The Altima has great handling and breaking. I love the interior and the layout and the seats are very comfortable on long trips. It also has a ton of storage compartments that come in handy! The only bad thing about the interior is the trim material scratches easily around the shifter and windows. In addition to the interior scratching, the paint chips and scratches pretty easily. However the paint is very sparkly and looks great. The only other negative being the "spirited" driver that I am is that at 69K I had to replace the steering rod and pinion as well as the transmission solenoid, but both were covered under warranty. I also heard that other owners of 2005's had to replace the rod and pinion, but there was never a recalled issued. Overall this car is very fun to drive and gets pretty good gas mileage. I would recommend getting an Altima to anyone looking for a midsize sedan. However, my next Nissan will be either a 3.5 V6 Altima or Maxima because they have a lot more power and go.

    Pros: Fun car to drive with great style, power and comfort.

    Cons: Had to replace a few parts that were covered under warrenty

    Pros: handles like a gem

    Cons: none
