2006 Nissan Altima Sedan 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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.

Review

I purchased this car 2 months ago with just over 40,000 miles on it. The car took me by surprise when I first sat in the car, much roomier than it looks from the outside. The car is also very fast, I burnt rubber right out of the dealership on the test drive. Passing speed is no problem, it does it in the blink of an eye. I just drove from NJ to NC and got 32 mpg, at an average speed of 75 mph. City driving it will get 21-22 mpg. Overall its getting 26 mpg combined. All-in-all a great car for the money. Great fuel economy for the power that comes with it. Interior is very nice, lots of gadgets. Great look too. only problem is that I see a ton of them on the road.


Best Features

Speed, fuel economy, comfort. Bose stereo. Radio steering wheel controls.


Worst Features

Turning radius is a little better than my Dodge Dakota.

Review

I just bought one with 46k miles on it. I was happy to find that it still has plenty of power. I took it on a 7 hour road trip and enjoyed how easily I could pass other cars on the highway. It also gets pretty decent gas mileage for the size of the engine. The handling could be better, it feels heavy in turns. A little disappointed with the sound system. Overall a comfortable and capable vehicle.


Best Features

Power, navigation system.


Worst Features

Turning radius isn't great. Sportier handling/suspension. Equalizer for the CD player. Lose the spoke in the center of the steering wheel. Seats are a little hard.
