Review

Hey looking for a great car this is the one! I bought my Altima in 2006 with 114k miles on it, and at 172k it's still running strong. Besides the minor work it's very dependable great on gas and roomy. Nissan did a great job with this one, if I could have anything else I would keep this one.


Favorite Features

The trunk is big and the A/C is cold.


Suggested Improvements

Better turning radius.

Review

I purchased my Altima in 06 with 130,000 miles on it. It now has 181,000 miles. In May of 2008 my timing chain popped & bent my valves, it would've cost more for me to simply replace the belt & valves so I ended up getting a new motor. The timing chain breaking appears to be a common problem after 150,000 miles. If you hear any type of rattling from your motor get it checked!! Besides that, I have not had any problems with my vehicle except normal maintenance (oil changes, brakes, tires). I look forward to having this car for another 50,000 miles!!


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage, roomy & spacious


Suggested Improvements

Better speakers, timing belt instead of the chain

Review

Bought the car in 2010 with 133,000 miles on it. Now at 173,000 and have only put brakes, tires, and new headlights on it. Engine and transmission are rock solid, never had an issue with either. My dear friend is getting old, however. Her rocker panel on the passenger side is almost completely eaten away, she has a rust hole in the floor board behind the passenger seat. It kills me to see my car rust out because despite the rust, she's never quit on me, and she won't hesitate to blow by someone on a two-lane or cruise comfortably at 80 on country roads. I could probably change the oil every 7,000 the way this car sips oil. Probably won't even get rid of her when I get a new car.


Favorite Features

-strong 4 cylinder -smooth, comfortable ride -30+mpg on the highway -virtually no repairs -built tough


Suggested Improvements

-rust is a big issue -other than that, none

Review

My 10 yr old Nissan Altima is one of the best cars that I have ever owned, and I've had quite a few over the years before I bought this. This car has been really good to me and the repairs have been very minor and only in the last couple of years...things do wear out after all. The body has held up really well too; no signs of rust and it still looks nice. If I were to replace it, that would be because I'm bored and want something new (this is the longest I've ever kept a car. I used to get a new one every 4-6 yrs).


Favorite Features

That would be the way it looks. I love the color I chose and I bought the sport package vehicle, so it has just a bit more pep than the regular version. Love my sunroof!


Suggested Improvements

outside noise from back. this has been a complaint with all Nissan vehicles and unless they have improved that over the past few years, I'd have to switch to a Honda or Toyota. But I'd ck their record on that first too, cause if they have the same problem, I'd stick with my Nissan!
