i had gotten car at 35k in 08, havent given me any issues since then. just a week ago reaching 160 replaced all shock and shruts since mine was worn out. Also had water pump replaced with spark plugs. besides those major stuff, car has been performing great and still gives great mileage.
havent had transmission or timing chain issue.
i fell this car can go another 100k easily. cant complain on this car, if very spacious inside and a good size trunk. i prefer this over the recent altimas out
2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I planned on buying a civic si later that day but I was strolling through dealerships with my sister checking out various cars for no reason. I drove past the Altima and she mentioned it and I backed up. I started checking it out and I slowly liked it more and more. The dealership owner let me test drive it. I accidentally peeled out leaving the dealership and was very impressed with the power. The drive sealed the deal for me. I bought it yesterday and I'm still smiling every time I walk up to the car. It's fast, comfy, decent on gas for the power it has. The stereo is the best I've heard so far. It has a nice security system and drives so smooth. Passing people on the highway or getting to highway speed is no problem At all. She only has 70k on her and besides a few cosmetic flaws, it's a 10-10 condition. I love this car.. Its a secret sports car that's still a 4 door and it feels almost like a luxury car.
2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought my Nissan Altima 3.5 SE in 2006 and have been very pleased with it over the course of its lifetime.
I had no warranty issues and have made sure that regular maintenance has been done.
This car has been fun to drive and I enjoy getting into it every day.
Overall I am very pleased with this car.
Pleasantry aside, I recently needed to have the timing chain replaced.
This is not cheap and is a labor intensive job.
Aside from the timing chain and other regular maintenance (brakes, battery, et cetera) I have not had any issues with my car.
I plan on driving this colloquial tank into the ground.
Fun to drive.
Good handling and peppy motor.
Imagine the possibilities if this were rear wheel drive and supercharged and/or turbo'd.
I bought my Altima in 2009 with 40,000 miles on it.
It's now at 172,000 miles and still runs perfectly.
It has been driven very hard the entire time I have had it.
I drive the car 100mph+ on a weekly basis and it has never failed me.
All I have done is change the oil every 3000 miles.
I've had to replace the brakes a few times which has more to do with how I drive than anything else.
I would highly recommend an Altima to anyone who is looking for a dependable vehicle.
It's not the fastest or best handling car on the road but it is more than capable of anything you would need.
Only complaint might be that it handled poorly in the snow when I used to live in Michigan.
