Follow-up After 2 Years: Still Good
By David K on

Vehicle

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

Review

It has been two years since I bought my used Altima, and I'm not loving it any less. Mileage is now at 73K and the car is asking for new brakes and shocks soon. Also, strangely, a motor mount bushing cracked. A few annoyances: Turning radius is too large, brake interlock in auto trans. clicks loudly when coming to a stop, and sometimes hard 1-2 downshifts. Now that I have the bad out of the way, none of the above prevents me from endorsing this car. Car is still comfy, stylish and sporting. Beyond one trim piece cracking, materials quality is satisfactory.

Best Features

Roomy, interior cubbies, good all-around visibility, reliability, telescoping wheel, fob op. roll down windows, sportiness, big trunk.

Worst Features

A moot point since it's a used car. Safety (ABS, side airbags, trac./stab. control) and entertainment offerings (NAV & AUX port) are lacking compared to newer cars. Nothing the refreshed '07 and later Altimas or the aftermarket haven't addressed for people who can't live without such things.
