2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Nissan says that Maxima is their
flagship. Having owned my Altima for a
mere six months, I'd argue that point.
The dramatic new body style and sleek
design drew me to the car at first
sight. I owned two Sentras before
buying my Altima and those lasted from
1988 through 2003. After 15 years, I
don't think Nissan could have given me
a better car to replace my Sentras
with. Forget the Maxima, choose the
performance and fun and downright
sexiness of the Altima! I LOVE mine!

Best Features

6-cylinder engine, the stick shift, the auto-dimming rearview mirror, the side rails, the REAR of the car itself.


Worst Features

Incorporate water shields on the windows to keep rain from leaking into the car when the window is down a bit in the rain. No car maker has this feature and it really ticks me off to get wet.

Review

I love my 2003 Altima! I have over
20000 miles on it and have only owned
it one year. I enjoy driving it and
have received many compliments on my
vehicle. I have even helped 3 people I
know decide to buy one. Fun car for a
good price!


Best Features

Body style, interior space, and comfort. I love my moon roof although I do notice a rattling sound from it every so often.


Worst Features

Improve the seat fabric it picks up everything and is very hard to vacccum. Determine why moon roof occasionally rattles and fix.

Review

VERY HANDSOME AUTOMOBILE. VERY ROOMY
INTERIOR AND VERY COMFORTABLE. THE 2.5
LITER ENGINE HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH
POWER. THE RIDE IS VERY SMOOTH AND
QUIET.HAS MANY NICE ELECTRICAL FEATURES.
I RECOMMEND IT.

Review

We bought a new Altima (4 miles)in Mar
03. In June, the car would not start.
The dealership sent a tow truck to pick
up the car. The tow truck guy told us
that we had to press on the gas while
trying to start the car. He did this
for 5 minutes and the car started. The
dealership tells me that the keys lost
their programming and thus the car
could not possibly start w/o being
reprogrammed. Nissan is full of crap.
If the keys were the problem then the
car should have never started. Anyway,
the car couldn't start again in
October. Nissan was not as accomodating
this time, so I am getting rid of my
Altima and never again will I buy a
vehicle from Nissan.
