Had this car for close to 5 years, just paid it off and glad I did. As mentioned in other reviews, the hubcaps rattle, there is significant wind noise, gas mileage isn't great (24mpg highway) and the ride is stiff. The seats are a tad uncomfortable and become moreso on long drives. Had to have all 4 window motors replaced under recall, then had the intake manifold gasket replaced at 63K miles ($600 job and apparently a known problem with Nissan Altimas, but not subject to recall). All that said, this has been a very reliable little car. The 4-cyl engine coped fairly with driving the Virginia hills towing a U-Haul trailer and does okay otherwise.
Storage and armrests are in the right places, interior is pretty roomy, can get comfortable easily
Gas tank release needs outside access (not inside release latch like now), more comfortable seats, reduced wind noise and plusher ride. Plus redesign engine so $30 intake manifold gasket doesn't require 8 hours of labor to remove the top of the engine and replace. Better gas mileage from 4-cyl.
