Cons: not good on snowA great car, excellent on gas mileage. The only downside is its not good for winter driving when there is deep er snow on the roads. I would recommend snow tires which I didn't have. The car is great when the conditions are rainy or icy.
Cons: idiot lights (especially the low tire pressure light)Snazzy looks matched with impressive handling and performance and just-enough creature comforts
2005 Nissan Altima
Cons: nothingThe car was an inheritance it has high mileage and I need a smaller car, economical, but useful. Love the car, but want to use it for money to pay off other bills
new 2011 nissan altima
Pros: 3.5 engine
Cons: gas milage and pricingthis 2011, all new nissan altima is better than ever, with the simillar engine, such as the 2.5 standard engine, and also the coupe and the 3.5 super charged altima. one of the eye chatching feacture of all is the key less entry and automatic garage sencer and the spacious cabin. pleanty of electronic outlits for the gadgets you have to carry.
Pros: Gas milage and 20 gal fuel tank
Cons: Transmission and noise in cabinThis is my 2nd Nissan -- I previously owned a 1994 Sentra that I put nearly a quarter million miles on with absolutely no problems. The Altima is larger and certainly with more power, but after owning it for almost 4 years I don't think the build quality of Nissan models is a high as it used to be. I do not like the CVT transmission -- its loud and 'down shifts' when going down hills; the car cabin is much noiser than the Sentra especially on less than smooth roads. I have had to replace the fuse in the console 3 or 4 times and last spring had to replace the entire fuse box (over $400). That plus some other little fixes here and there just leaves me with the impression that this car is not up to the usual reliability of Nissan and other Japanese cars I have owned in the past. I have about 63K miles on it (mostly highway) and have been seriously thinking about trading it in on something else -- which is very unusual for me as I tend to keep cars for 10 or more years and don't usually think about another car until I have put at least 250,000 miles on one.
