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

Review

My "used to have" 2002 Nissan Altima was a great looking car, even up to the end when I traded it in last week. The comfort and ride quality is excellent. Amenities with the vehicle are to a minimum but overall the car is very nice. However this car does have many issues. The car at 97k miles had been burning oil (a qt a week) thus flooding the motor to where it can't start. 02 sensors were bad, fuel pump went out twice, recalled gas tank, very cheap interior materials. However when the car did run, of which it did very well 90% of the times, it drove smoothly and quietly.

Favorite Features

Bose radio, for 150w is excellent. Soft leather. Spacious cabin room. Adequate performance.

Suggested Improvements

Of what Nissan did change for 2008 wasn't much better. They need to steer clear of that CVT as they've lost their market for customers. CVT is a love/hate thing. I personally hate it. Interior quality is still poor as well as the performance seemed to gotten worse.
