Pros: very smooth rider
Cons: i loved it all, not many problems at all!I love this car! It was my first car, and did very well!
Pros: cruise control
Cons: vent system floor vents could be better. passenger seat is not as comfortable as driver seat, and I think that can also be improved.Very dependable 7 years of no headaches
Pros: radio controls
Advice: noneI've had my altima for one week and two days. I brought it from a used car dealership, seems to run ok. It only had 47,000 miles on it.My four year old loves it! Has lots of room and the system is wonderful! I'm loving it,hope I'LL BE FEELING THE SAME SIX weeks from now!
Pros: The engine
Cons: Haven't found anything I didn't like yet!
Advice: Test drive this last as you'll want to take it home with you.After careful review of several other cars in this class, the 2003 Altima 3.5 won. The Altima 3.5 has a very fast engine. The interior is very functional and convenient. Huge trunk! This car is very sporty and fun to drive. I love it and would definately buy another.
Pros: Radio controls on steering wheel
Cons: Center vents does not close and limited direction
Advice: Price of vehicle made our decision and lots of options for the moneyThe 2003 model handles much better than our 98 yet still comfortable. It's also quiet. The only thing that a little annoying is the hollow sound from the rear over bumps.
Pros: The 245hp VQ35 motor.....
Cons: The suspension is a little stiff...
Advice: Buy the 3.5SE....This car is eons ahead of the Accord and Camry...a definite must have...
Pros: the body style
Cons: the bland interiior and I wished the BIG outside mirrors folded in.
Advice: Get this car loaded but get the 2.5L engine. You'll get the best mileage and wont lose a lil PEP!This is a great car. It rides smooth and accelerates well when merging and passing on the freeway. The 175 HP engine is perfect for this size car. Steering gets really stiff when parking and going in low speeds. Vision is excellent for my wife and I. I am 6'4' and she is 5' 2'. we BOTH find the view excellent from the drivers seat. The 2.5 S with the comfort package is a better ride than the 3.5 Altima we test drove. I couldn't believe how quiet the 4 cylinder is. A smooth car well worth the test drive.
