2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S, White with Black interior, 5-speed manual. Purchased new in October, 2004. Current mileage: 68,000. I have only needed one repair, and that was a crankshaft positioning sensor, which was discovered by the service engine light coming on. I have used Mobile 1 full synthetic from the beginning. The car literally drives like new.
Styling still looks great 9 years later. Reliability is great, still handles and feels like new. Interior still looks like new so the materials must be high quality.
The original Continental tires had terrible traction. My second set were Goodyear Triple Treds and now I have Michelin Defenders. Both of these tires are great. Wish it had Traction Control and ABS.
