2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought this car brand spanking new in 05. Drove the 4 cylinder Then drove the v6. The 4 is pathetic, this car is a rocket. Had to get the 5spd manual because an automatic is just wrong when paired to a vq35de engine. Stock tires were absolute garbage, all seasons on a 250 horse car? The 6 pack changer had to be replaced under warranty. Floor mats wore right through under gas and clutch pedal. Great car, highly recommend the v6 model to everyone. Drive a manual before you buy the automatic to see how amazing this car can be. I've got about 60,000 miles on mine and its been bulletproof.
Definitely needs a limited slip. Aux and USB plug should have been standard. Stock Bridgstone Turanzas garbage. Floor mats need to be better. Easier to change headlight bulbs. Throatier exhaust and intake. Make brembos optional on non SE-R models.
