2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Leased vehicle 8/2004 after receiving offer from Nissan on early termination of lease on 2001 Pathfinder. Loved that SUV. Was impressed with Altima's overall design and engine performance. Neglected to check oversall body frame. Late August 2004 while slowly backing out of a parking space hit a low brick planter(too low to see in rear view mirror. Cost replacement molded bumper $542.00.Used a magnet to check the body and found the hood and trunk were molded not metal. Concerned safety driving this car whose body is not 100% metal.


Best Features

Enjoy driving. Have always driven a Toyota Camry. Got into Nissan because of the Pathfinder.


Worst Features

Go back to full metal body frame.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought the car then drove from Florida to California and everywhere in between. I logged over 13K miles and no problemo. I was on the road for four months, drove in every kind of weather possible including needing chains to make it through the mountain passes yet, it holds its own without them. I absolutely love this car.


Best Features

The stero controls on the wheel, and the automatic closing of the sunroof upon shutting the car off.


Worst Features

Put the blinker signals lower on the controls so I can see when they are blinking. It is in a blind spot for me.

Review

Even though I have only owned my Altima for over a little more than a month I am delighted to get behind the wheel. I think it looks good and I look good in it. It handles well and gets good gas milage as well. So far the dealer has lived up to all of my expectations.


Worst Features

There should be more instrutment lights especially on the steering wheel.

2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I am a 45-year old mother of five and can I say owning this car has been the most fun! My older kids all want to drive it and show it off to their friends. The younger ones think it's such a treat whenever I let them go for a ride in it. The whole look of the exterior and interior screams luxury sport. And the Code Red color sure does turn heads.


Best Features

Code Red color, luxurious leather interior, tight handling on curves, awesome Bose stereo system, nice size trunk - lots of space.


Worst Features

Warn drivers the sporty, racing tires are NOT meant for snow. On dry and rainy pavement, they're fantastic. But with even a dusting of snow, they're useless.
