    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 SL (M5)

    Pros: The powerful Bose stereo system.

    Cons: The fact that the controls on the steering wheel are not at all visible at night.

    Advice: Don't step on the gas too hard when at a standstill as the tires are not grippy and you tend to burn some rubber before finally taking off.

    Prior to owning this car I owned a 2001 Lexus LS430 (I sold due to possibility of layoff). The Altima I chose was a 2.5SL black on black. Although the Altima and the Lexus are in two totally different classes, I must say that I was pleasantly surprise with the ride and quality of a car in this price range ($22k). Also, to be quite honest, I thought the Bose stereo system outperformed the Mark Levison stereo system in the Lexus. Furthermore, this car is a great everyday car which definately proves its worth in terms of fuel efficiency and appearance. One disappointment was that the add-ons (leather, floormats, alloy wheels, etc.) were way too expensive compared to the quality of materials used. However, the quick pickup (180+ torque) more than made up for that. Unfortunately, the engine was a bit noisy (spoiled from the Lexus I think) when revved above the 3000rpm mark. Some sound damping in the cabin interior wouldn't hurt and would only help this car edge out the best selling Accord and Camry. Finally, though I have every intention to purchasing a Lexus once again, I would no doubt purchase another Altima to use as a secondary car in the years to come.
