    2005 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S w/SL Pkg (50 State) (A4)

    Pros: roominess

    Cons: handling

    Advice: test drive it first

    After my last altima, (before the design change.) I thought I might be done with the problem of a foggy windshield.I also have an interesting problem whereby if the door behind the driver's seat is open for a few seconds, the car locks activate. I have now learned the importance of test driving a car. I relied upon the performnce of my old one. The new wider body used on the 2003 has a lousy turning radius. Mileage is also poor. However, the styling is a decided plus and the comfort is very good. actually, I am pleased with the purchase.

    Advice: One of the best and roomiest in its class, be sure to check the engine noise on the highway, get the Bose sound system

    Corners well and is a very responsive ride, full of pep for passing or uphill climbs.
