2004 Nissan Altima Sedan 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Overall, I really like the car. I've had to put it in the shop for failure to start, CAM sensor, and O2 sensor problems. I did NOT enjoy that part of owning the car. I've spent about $550 in repairs in 2 years. I just past $70,000 miles. I guess that's not so bad...


Favorite Features

gas mileage, remote entry, trunk size, exterior styling, horsepower (given the price range)


Suggested Improvements

extend the dealer warranty to 100K miles

Review

This was a great car 'til it hit 40,000 miles. Now I have problems that the dealer can't fix. The car shakes and vibrates then kills. The check engine light comes on. The dealer checked the computer and changes sensors at $250 a pop and the car runs good for a day than the problems start over. This is my first and last Nissan!!!!!!


Favorite Features

Great looks


Suggested Improvements

put a computer system that has a better memory so it can give you better error messaging.

Review

I have had so many problems with this car. It doesn't start some mornings, they tell me this is normal. I also am not getting good gas mileage whatsoever. I cannot believe that people are having good luck with this car, I have had nothing but problems.

Review

The Nissan Altima has been the best car I've ever purchased. I have the 2.5 engine, but it drives like a V6. When I first test drove the Altima, it took a while for me to get used to the acceleration. This car is powerful and very fun to drive. The fuel efficicency is good, especially in todays high gas prices.


Favorite Features

Very nice interior, not easily stained. Good sound system.


Suggested Improvements

More dash board "toys", i.e., digital readout.Heated outside mirrors.
