2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am extremely happy that I chose an
Altima 2.5S. This car is step above the
usual family sedan. It feels more like
a sports sedan (ie: BMW 5 series, Audi
A6). While other reveiws seem to focus
on the interior plastics etc. I'd take
performance iver plastic any day. Also
the front seat comfortability and
adaption to each driver is better than
any other car in its class. The 4
cylinder has incredible pep. and the
suspension maintains a balanced ride.
Put that with the incredible price that
this car is going for you can't beat
it. The Altima 2.5S is winner.


Best Features

Engine, Brakes, Suspension, Roominess


Worst Features

Cabin Noise (wind, thumps)Interior Materials.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So far I think I made a good purchase.
The power is good for a I4, the
interior room is great, the standard
sound system actually uses Clarion
speakers but wish the reciever wasn't
so oddly shapped so it could be
replaced with an aftermaket. Squeaks
and rattles are my main concern with
the car. The front suspension makes a
squeaking noise when stopping down a
hill and the rear suspension seems to
rattle over bumpy roads. We will see
how it holds up in the long run.


Best Features

Power, Room, Value, and technology used thoughout


Worst Features

Interior quaility of materials, tighter steering feel at higher speeds, Suspension noise improvements, ABS should be standard.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After reading reviews here on Edmunds
and other car sites, I narrowed down my
search for a 4 door sedan between the
Altima, Passat and Accord. THough I
initially leaned towards the Passat,
with its nice interior and good
mileage,I liked the overall value the
Altima gave me. Even with the premium
package, whch included the Bose 8
speaker stereo, leather wrapped wheel,
moon roof, and steering wheel controls,
for the stereo and cruise control the
Altima came in ~ 1 -2k cheaper than the
similarly equipped Passat.
After a test drive in the Altima, I was
hooked.
Overall, a great package for the money
you pay.


Best Features

Bose stereo Exterior styling 8 way drivers power seat comfortable seats large interior volume and cargo area good combination of 180 hp engine and good gas mileage excellent handling - very smooth ride fold down cup holders in middle of rear seat great passing power from 45-65mph


Worst Features

-front cup holders too large for most cups -a little wind noise from front sides when traveling at speeds above 75 mph -interior plastics look a bit cheap

Review

Under the guise of buying a "family
sedan" I chose the Altima over the
Accord and Camry because it blows those
cars away in performance. I keep
reading about how cheap the interior is
but I strongly disagree. My interior
is terrific, as is the sound system,
and everything else about the car.


Best Features

The engine - the number of cars from Lexus, BMW, Acura, Audi, not to mention Toyota and Honda that this car leaves in the dust is fantastic!


Worst Features

The orange digital display doesn't read well under direct sunlight. Cargo nets in the trunk could be more useful.
