2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

It sure is very fun to drive. But the cup holder broke the first week I own it, and it took them 1 month to get the replacement part in. Power window actuator failed before I hit 3,000 miles and it took 7 trips 3 dealerships 5 calls to Nissan HQ & 6 months to identify and fix the problem. Mysterious rattling sound in the dash since 15,000 miles and a replacement of AC vent still didn't fix it. Did I mention the 5 or 6 recalls? It's not for people who don't have the time and patience. And the road noise is unbearable when travelling at high speed after two years.


Best Features

Automatic windows roll up/down from remote. Auto dim rearview mirror. Homelink. Heated seats. Bose system. Auto-on headlamps.


Worst Features

Cooler AC. Better quality control. More lumbar support. Standard ABS. Make the car able to start after just couple of days of inactivity. Better insulation to reduce the road noise. Improve body (it dents very easily.) Better tires. Better reception from antenna.

Review

I like my Altima very much but their
are alot of problems wrong with it.
First my car has a mind of its own it
starts when it fells like it. Second
has a bad water sound of the right
side. Third all of this stuff has been
checked the water noise was fixed but
came back, and the car starting was
checked and they see nothing wrong
with it other of my friends that have
the car say they have experienced this
problem even with the 6cylinder
engines. Nissan should make this
problem a recall on this car.


Best Features

BOSE AUDIO, HEATED SEATS, LOOK


Worst Features

BETTER SAFETY, STANDARD ABS, HEADLAMPS THAT YOU CAN SEE OUT OF ETC.
