2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
Researching cars and engines, I decided to buy a Nissan. Didn't like the blown-up Maxima so I bought the Altime 3.5 SE. Great acceleration when manually shift it (5 speed automatic) goes 0-60 in 5.5 seconds with slightly modified engine (performance intake).Gas mileage is good too (19-20 city, 29-30 highway with 93 octane). After rebuilding an older Maxima, I realized you get the most quality and performance for your money with Nissan. Nissan has a great luxury line of autos (Infiniti) especially the G3 5.
Great motor and transmission, excellent speedometer/tachometer setup, 5 speed automatic can be manually shifted. Great interior styling. Mine came with the great looking side skirts and rims
I replaced the stock exhaust tips with bigger, sportier looking tips that match the bumper lot better
