I do independant consulting, and after
much deliberation and delay, as well as
numerous test drives of other cars, i
ended up with a 2004 altima. I've had
it for a week, so i wouldn't expect to
have problems yet ;). It has been very
fun to drive, very smooth, pretty good
power, and would recommend that everyone
take a test drive.
Would have ended up with a 2005, wiht
the upgraded interior, but the $1500
rebate and tad lower negotiated price
was too much to pass up. But do check
out the 2005, i think the interior
quality will surprise a lot of honda and
Seats, comfortable for the two extended
driving trips i've done. Superb!
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.
