Had it for 5 years, still love it.

2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I'm this car's first owner, and all I've ever had to do was change a battery. Incredible reliability, a fun drive with great cornering, a sharp look (this was the first model year with the redesign), value. This was the first car I bought on my own and it was a solid purchase. I didn't get many fancy options (cloth interior, vinyl) but it still looks quite nice inside.
Cornering, huge trunk and roomy cabin in front and back, rearview mirror that self-adjust for brightness.
When I first got it, hard to find decent tires in the right size, but the selection seems to have improved recently. Fit and finish was a little loose when I first bought it, and I thought that might mean it would age badly, but the interior is still in great shape.
