Vehicle

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


Review

I've had this car for three months now and have put up over 3000 miles on it and already I've had a faulty shock and a leaking radiator replaced. I still love the car, but I question how many more parts are going to be faulty, if they're not already.


Favorite Features

Big tires, V6 response on 4-cyl engine, generous front leg room, and comfortable seat cloth.


Suggested Improvements

More quality interior materials and perhaps a 5-speed automatic.

Vehicle

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


Review

After driving a Nissan Sentra for 4 plus years, I am loving the extra power and interior room the Altima gives me. I have nothing bad to say about the vehicle. I've financed it for 5 years, and plan on keeping it for the length of the loan.


Favorite Features

The interior room-much bigger than my Sentra and much bigger than previous Altima models. Lots of trunk space. Might only be a 4 cylinder, but this car has some get up and go!


Suggested Improvements

No ash try for us smokers. Not real fond of the cup holder layout.

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


Review

I use to have to shut off the AC on my 2001 Altima to excellerate on to I-4. Now I have to hold on tight, what smooth power! Doing 80 and geting 30 mpg is outragous! What a car!


Favorite Features

The sound system is tight, the engine is tremendous!

Vehicle

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


Review

We bought this vehicle in the 2002 model for our daughter. We were so pleased with it that we bought the 2003 model for our son early (before he was eligible to drive). That gave me the time to have the pleasure of driving it for 9 months. Then, I had to turn it over and go back to driving my 2000 Infiniti I30t.


Favorite Features

It's roominess/size; It's very sleek design (Lexus'GS models have nothing on this model); It's speed/performance; It's price tag


Suggested Improvements

There does seem to be some body roll. Fuel economy could be better as with all Nissan products.
