We have only had our Altima for a week
but we love it. Great handling and
cornering and terrific acceleration for
a four. The engineering of the car is
outstanding. We felt the Altima had a
sporty feel to it that was lacking in
the Camry and Accord. We traded in a VW
Passat which also had great handling
but poor reliability.
Peppy engine, good gas mileage,comfort,
quiet, large trunk with folding rear
The car looks nice. After a year the
engine had to be repaired for a recall
and it still rattles and using oil.
The car is very noisy and rides like a
buck board. Motor is slow pick up. The
dealership was not up front when we
bought the car. We had no vehicle and
should not have rushed in buying the
Nissan, usually buy Fords. We are very
dissappointed in the car and very, very
disappointed in the dealership in not
keeping their promises. We will go
back to Fords.
The look of the car and the room inside
is very nice.
Do something about the road noise and
help make the ride more comfortable.
The motor is very sluggish. Needs to
be more durable and not rattle.
2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
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"
