One of the best vehicles
Pros: there are several
Cons: the way it ridesThe vehicle has been garage kept. It has given me excellent service at very little cost.
Best midsize for the money!
Cons: Rear leg room. 2003 had more!Had a 2003 Altima which was great! Wanted the gadgets on the 2007 (keyless, CVT). Car is extemely comfortable, handles beautifully and gets excellent mileage. Is definitely a good looker compared to much of the competition. Have 50k trouble free miles. I would buy another Altima. The 2.5 engine is more than sufficient. Love my Altima!!!
super buy feature for feature
Pros: cv transmission with manual shift feature
Cons: have to buy costly package to get fog lightsi shopped most comparable size and priced autos. fusion, accord, malibu, sonata,milan. to be sure i added nissan altima last. one drive and I was hooked and wife agreed. after two months and 2400 miles not a single problem. rides and drives like a much bigger auto. 34.1 mpg on long trip. 25-27 around town. three minor snits for me: no auto daytime driving lights[required in canada so i know it wouln't be a costly feature] , power retention when shutting down does not go to radio,only windows. to get fog lights must buy about$1000 package or $500 after market. nothing I can't live without but for such a fine vehicle it should happen.
DEPENDABLE LOW MAINTENANCE VEHICLE
Pros: Performance of 4 cylinder automatic has great acceleration.
Cons: Bumpy rideOur 2005 Altima 2.5S has over 90,000 miles on it and has been a very dependalble car with no problems except the usual maintenance like tires, battery and brakes. Ride is kind of choppy because of the low profile tires, but otherwise a great car. Not even any rust in an area that is known for rust problems. Smooth running car that we can count on.
Great car to drive
Pros: Gas milage
Cons: No option for passenger power seatI have the Hybrid and love the gas milage I get. I live in Orange County and can go roundtrip to San Diego on a quarter of a tank of gas.
Pros: Sound system
Cons: No tinted windowsI really like this car just want something bigger
Love everything except the engine noise
Cons: Engine noiseGreat car and amenities! Nav, leather, heated seats, rear view camera, great gas mileage! But, the engine sounds like a sewing machine under 1600 rpms. Dealers have all said this is 'normal'..but never heard a 4 cyl engine like this in a Mazda 3 or Ford Fusion.
