2002 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought this car in November of 2001 and now have 166k miles on it. I've never once had a problem with it, mechanical or otherwise. I've done all the routine maintenance and it's been a dream. Just know that most people writing reviews are only doing so to complain. This is the best car I've ever owned and at least 5 friends of mine have bough Nissans based on what they've seen from my car. When the time comes for something new I'm definitely buying Nissan again!
Performance, reliability, handling.
The quality of the interior could be slightly better, which they've done in the newer models, but it works for me!
