    2002 Nissan Altima - 3.5 SE (M5)

    Pros: Powerful V6

    Cons: Floor carpeting

    Advice: Consider this car before deciding on the competition

    We have owned Camry V6's in the past. The Altima V6 is just a better engine. Overall the car has performed beatifully. The price is hard to negotiate but worth it in the end. Unsure of the long term but from what I've seen so far, a solid car that turns heads.

    2002 Nissan Sentra - GXE (M5)

    Pros: features

    Cons: 2x to the dealer for minor issues

    Advice: A serious contender

    The Sentra really is an excellent car. I got a sporty looking car with an engine cheap and sturdy that's fun as hell to drive the materials are great. and I find that they stand out amongst the sea of civics out there

    2002 Nissan Altima - 3.5 SE (M5)

    Pros: Then V6 engine.

    Cons: No power seat memory.

    Advice: Shop several dealers against each other.

    Great looks, great engine & transmission. Some interior features on the cheap side, but none of the important features. Lots of storage space, great drink holders. A great family car for the young (and still alive) family.

    2002 Nissan Sentra - GXE (M5)

    Pros: Accelleration and Gas Milage

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: My sales person was excellent but watchout for con artists...BE PREPARED!

    I am have been a loyal Nissan consumer for almost a decade. My first car was a '86 200sx. My parents bought it for my my 16th b-day. At 156,000+ miles, it is a workhorse. I just bought a '02 Sentra GXE two weeks ago. I am very pleased. For an entry level car it has out performs most of the cars in its class. I would advise anyone who is just starting out like me to strongly consider the Sentra.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 SL (M5)

    Pros: Appearance/Ergonomics

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Negotiate vigorously when considering options/features!

    The 2002 Nissan Altima took my breath away! I tested the 2.5SL model and was amazed that a 4-cylinder could drive so powerfully. The acceleration is fantastic but be careful, it can really get away from you. This year's model is completely redesigned and is more attractive than its higher-priced big brother, the Maxima. The interior cabin is spacious and gorgeous, with soft comfortable leather. Large trunk, fold-down back seats. The new design is as stylish as some of the higher-end foreign cars such as the Audi A4 or VW Passat. I'm impressed to say the least.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 3.5 SE (M5)

    Pros: Leg room both in front and in back

    Cons: Absolutely nothing!

    Advice: If you want a 5 speed

    Drive this car and love this car! Don't let the salesperson pitch you on the 4 cylinder. Get the 6 cylinder with the 240 hp. It's definitely worth it! I had a 97 Jetta prior and loved that car. I was considering getting a 2002 Jetta but they just don't have the horsepower. You want speed? Get the 3.5 SE!

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S (M5)

    Pros: STYLING & COMFORT.

    Cons: LIMITED WARRANTY RATHER THAN BUMPER-TO-BUMPER

    Advice: COMPARE AND THEN TEST DRIVE THE VEHICLE.

    I WENT IN THE DEALERSHIP TO LOOK AT A NEW MAXIMA AND I ENDED UP TAKING A TEST DRIVE IN THE NEW ALTIMA WITH THE 2.5L ENGINE AND I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED. INITIALLY, I THOUGHT I WANTED THE 3.5L (6-CYL) BUT I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THE GET UP AND GO ON THE 2.5L WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION THAT I PURCHASED THE MODEL WITH THE 2.5L ENGINE AND I HAVE NOT REGRETTED MY DECISION SO FAR...
