2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
I bought this car at a large auto auction. I was looking for a 2005 Altima SE or Maxima SE. Came across this one and fell in love with its design. This car has it all for a stock 4-door sedan. The gas mileage is okay, I am averaging 21 MPG, but that is probably due to the fact that this car wants to be driven hard. This car will flat out fly. I had to by the automatic b/c the wife refuses to learn a manual. The ride quality of this car is good, but not great. This is due to the 18 inch low profile wheels and super stiff sport suspension. This is not your grandpa's Caddy. Bottom line, I would buy this over the competition. Nissan is making some of the best cars on the road.
Performance, handling, braking, nice Bose stereo. Roomy 4-door sports car, if there is such a thing.
Stiff ride, but that's expected. Road noise due to larger low profiles, iPod integration, slight improvement of interior plastics on door panels.
