2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I love this car. Since it is my wife's car I donít get to drive it enough. Excellent highway mileage. I will agree that the interior has a somewhat of a cheap feel to it but if you choose the right color combination you can minimize it. The 3.5 se has way more look and drive that any other car in the price range.


Favorite Features

The look from behind on the 3.5 se with the dual exhastis really hot. The horepower is awesome as well.


Suggested Improvements

less plastic on the interior, glare on the stereo, interior noise.

2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have been a Nissan owner for several years. My first Nissan product was an Infiniti G20. Since then I have owned another G20, two Maxima's, and my Altima. I loved my '02 Maxima SE (which I sold to buy my wife her car). I love this Altima. Prior to buying my '02 Maxima, I drove an '02 Altima. I immediately disliked the Altima's interior (cheap). The '05 Altima is a huge improvement. The 3.5 V6 gets outstanding gas mileage, especially given it's intoxicating power, and is very smooth. The ride is comfortable, and the car is quiet. I paid $2K less for my '05 Altima than I did for my '02 Maxima (great value). My next car is going to be another Nissan product, probably an Infiniti G35.


Favorite Features

3.5 V6, Bose Audio, quality, styling, ride, comfort, steering wheel audio controls (very well done), Xenon headlights. This car is way under- rated by car experts!!!!


Suggested Improvements

Exterior rear view mirrors don't fold (can be broken off)

I have owned this car for 2 months and i love it. It handles like any high priced car and has amazing acceleration. for the price you can't buy a better car. It looks great too.


Favorite Features

my favorite feature is 3.5 engine. It is night and day to the four cylinder.


Suggested Improvements

the only thing i would like more is if the car was lowered, it's too high.

Review

My overalll review of the Nissan Altima has been a great experience. I was always a firm believer in American made autos only and my nneyes were opened to foreign made autos. I would certainly pruchase nother Nissan again. The Altima has delievered style, room, spaciousness, affordability, comfort, looks, and reliability. This is certaninly a vechile I wold purchase again.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature of the Nissan ALitma is the BOSE in dash 6 CD player with complete full shound throughout the entire vechile.


Suggested Improvements

However Nissan needed to improve upon the interior design of the 2004 Altima and thus they did with the new 2005 Altima that was totally redesigned on the interior and now it is simply fab.

Review

This is the second Altima we 've owned, after an excellent performance by the 2002, that we had for about 2 years, we went browsing and alas, traded in the first (we rec'd about $11000 trade in value), and came home weith a new one. This is still the best we've had in the many cars (mostly new ones) we've had in our marriage (35years) In a term "The Greatest"


Favorite Features

Everything from ride to road performance


Suggested Improvements

Automatic pilot (smile)

Review

I have owned 4 Nissan's in the last 13 years. They are well built, easy to drive, comfortable, and give you a little bit of luxury with out the big price on any model you try. Test drive one and you will feel and see the difference.


Favorite Features

Drive performance, stereo, comfort


Suggested Improvements

Not such a matte rim on the models with a little bit of crome detailing
