Review of the 2004 Nissan Altima

  • Once a frumpy wallflower, the Altima is now a midsize sedan to be desired, especially when equipped with the 245-horsepower V6.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sports car power in a midsize sedan body, excellent handling, roomy and comfortable interior, high level of features, distinct styling.

  • Cons

    Low-grade interior materials, considerable road noise, overboosted steering, no stability control.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Altima's winning formula continues with few changes. Smoke is a new exterior color choice, and four-cylinder models meet stricter federal emissions standards. Models with California emissions are now classified as Partial Zero Emissions Vehicles (PZEV).

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

2004 2.5 automatic bought 2/2004; 106,000 99% hgwy miles; excellent maintenance; 1 driver only. Within six months of purchase, 1 piston not firing fixed under warranty--told I was LUCKY!); replaced serpentine belt (3 yrs); hesitating 4 1/2 yrs ($1500. to fix); now, oil leaking into engine, told I need a NEW ENGINE! My 3rd Altima, other two (standard, 95 & 98, no problems at all. THIS CAR A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT.

Value for the money over

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I purchased it because I like the body style. I like the drive, comfortable for 4. Good fuel economy.




Altma rocks!

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

We love our Altma on the, we drove it from Va. to Ga. and enjoyed every moment of it. We can't wait until the price of gas changes so we can do it again.




Heater

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I did not like the heater. The windows kept fogging up on me and I had to put the defroster on full blast to clear them. At times it seemed to blow cold air on my legs also. This is a rental car but I had it for 8 days. Nice car to drive though and would but one except for the heater nuisance.




Best in class

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I love this car. It is well designed, good looking and great value for the money. It is big inside and out with a smooth quiet ride and the trunk is huge. The tilt / telescope wheel allow for a very relaxed seating position. There is a lot of aluminum in this car making it the lightest and most responsive in its class. The four cylinder has lots of power, and I can't imagine why anyone would get the six. For only $500 I got a p/seat, security, trip PC, alloy wheels, controls on the steering wheel, remote opens the trunk, doors and both front windows, and a really awesome sound system. Toyota and Honda finally have some real competition!




Affordable style!

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

I bought our Altima brand new and I though it was the best choich of the bunch. Pricing was great and the looks and styling of the car were even better. Anyone looking to drive a maxima or infinity for 8 to 12 thousand less. This is the place!
