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.

Never again!

Vehicle: 2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

V6 engine is a +. Interior has a lot of space. Exterior looks very good to be called an Altima. The parts on and in the car is something else. Got my 2004 Altima in Dec. of 2003 and the o2 sensor wend bad @ 1200 miles after that was the left strut at 6000 miles. Then the right at 6800 miles. Over and over. Never ending. Total times struts were replaced is around 7 times for a 2004 Altima w/ 17800 miles. Now Nissan Service has me going in again for a window molding to be repaired for the 4 time now. Nissan Service, and the Altima. NEVER AGAIN! Tips for the ones thinking about the new Altimas. Don't do it. Check all websites w/ info on the Altimas. Wish me luck w/ my lemon.

I have driven SUV's in the past 15 years and I did not think I would like a car but this car has the get up and go that I like and it is great to drive. I don't know if I will go back to an SUV. Rahalchevybuick.com is where I bought mine in Marianna,Fl and they are great people. I got black interior is the only complaint that I have so far. 3.5 SE Altima with Sports pkg. Black interior shows every little speck or lint.
