2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
I got an '04 SE 5 speed with floormats
as my only option. Great car, very
fast, lots of room, and handles
decently. Even the gas mileage hovers
around 27-28 when commuting at 75mph,
which I am more than happy with.
True, Nissan cut some costs on the
interior, especially the door panels,
and there is a good amount of torque
steer when you gun it from a stop, but
the build quality is excellent and I am
very pleased so far.
If you are looking for a new fairly
inexpensive sedan with a powerful,
flexible, and extremely reliable V6 and
don't need a bunch of extra options,
this car is tough to beat.
VQ engine, exterior styling
Better materials on the door panels,
smoother linkage on the shifter,
perhaps make ABS/EBD standard like most
other competitors in this price range
