2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
After 104,000 miles, this car still runs and rides like new. The 2.5L, 4sp automatic has plenty of pep and delivers an average of 27 mpg for this daily commuter. The ride is smooth and handling is above average. There is plenty of head and leg room front and back, the seats are comfortable, and the Bose sound system is fantastic. Maintenance has been minimal, replacing the front right wheel bearing at 90,000 (extended warranty work)and the crankshaft position sensor at 102,000 ($120 parts and labor). The road noise is the only thing that I can say bad about this car. For the money, you can't find a better equipped vehicle.
