For a 4 cyl, this has a lot of pick up, which is why I only avg 21 mpg. I like a powerful car and it is fun to drive. Very comfortable car. Smooth ride. All the controls are where you would expect them to be. On a winter day of 13 F, the driver's window was stuck down after going to an ATM. The dealership replaced all 4 window motors for me under a recall. Had to replace the intake manifold gasket at 32K. I would buy another Altima - especially if I got the stick shift. That would be even more fund to drive.
Purchased a seat belt extender when I was pregnant!
The moldings around door jambs not very sturdy. They keep slipping off. I always have problems with the doors freezing shut, probably due to the moldings. Dislike the shape of the car around the trunk. Boring styling.
