It's Been A Great Car So Far!
By rhcpgirlaji on
2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
The only major thing I'd change would be that I would have gotten the 6-speed manual rather than the 5-speed automatic, but that wasn't my choice. Of course, there are some minor annoyances, but overall it's a fantastically fun, yet practical, sedan to own.
You actually have some control in the "manual mode" of the 5-speed automatic transmission model (meaning it won't automatically upshift for you, but it will downshift if needed); Accelerates like mad; Stability & control are great; Trunk space is great and seats fold down; Excellent highway mileage
Much noisier than the 1996 Maxima I owned prior to this car; The A/C vents could use more motion/directional control; Defrost does little to combat fog, especially in humid conditions; Rearview mirrors don't fold/are rigid; So low to the ground that brick roads and speedbumps assault you a bit.
