2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
I bought my first Nissan last year after owning a Saturn. The Nissan is MUCH more reliable than the Saturn was. So far, I've only had routine maintenance work done. I feel safe in the Altima.
The car is beautiful. All my family and friends love it. It's practical. It's great for a single person, yet large enough to hold me and a few friends comfortably. Great trunk space and a nice-sized back seat.
Lighted steering wheel controls. Less interior noise. I often hear a rush of wind near my driver's side rear window.
