Great All-Around Car
By Jason on


2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


This car offers a great driving experience and provides excellent practicality. The brakes hall it down from speed very quickly and have proven to be fade free on multiple trips through mountain roads. Steering is quick and neutral, and the suspension controls body motions without being overly harsh. The engine has a broad powerband, and the automatic transmission almost always shifts at the correct times while holding gears when appropriate. There is a lot of room in the car, even for tall people, and the seating position is very nice. The car has had a bad engine mount, loose rear window, and broken moonroof visor (my fault), all covered under warranty.

Best Features

Great brakes, strong engine, intelligent automatic transmission, interior room, heated front seats, HID headlights, supportive front seats, good A/C, in-dash Bose CD changer, nice seating position, lots of storage, attractive styling inside and out, SE-R wheels.

Worst Features

Use less plastic in the interior to cut down on rattles, add some more sound deadening material, make AWD available.
