2006 Nissan Altima Sedan 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this vehicle 10 months ago. About a month later I received a letter from Nissan that some of the 2006 Altimas 2.5S were catching on fire due to mechanical problems that was causing the car to burn a large amount of oil and to keep on checking and add oil to the vehicle until they could came up with a solution. Finally 8 months later there was a recall on it and to bring the car to the dealership. There I was complaining that the car was burning about 2 qt of oil every 3,500 miles And I was told by the service manager that it is normal for the car to burn that much oil and for something to be wrong with the car it has to burn 1 qt of oil every 700 miles. Nissan headquarters gave same ans.


Worst Features

It is not normal for a new car to burn 2 qt of oil every 3,500 miles. Stand behind the vehicle you sell and don't tell customers you are sorry that you are not happy with the car. Just fix it or take it back.. isn't there a lemon law..

Review

I needed a mid size car and I looked at the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima and by far the Altima was the best deal. Honda and Toyota did not have any special offers but Nissan did and the features of the Nissan were out of this world!! I owned a Honda Civic which I had no problems with but I needed something bigger and the Nissan Altima surpassed all of my needs. THANK YOU NISSAN!!


Best Features

Controls on steering wheel and power seat adjustments.


Worst Features

None....excellent inside and out.

Review

I bought the Altima because it is very exciting to drive. There is never a dull moment, even with the four-cylinder. It accelerates very quickly, some would say fast, and I can really FEEL the torque that Nissan has squeezed into the engine. The engine BEGS me to drive it hard and fast and it has a race-car like sound to it when I open it up. The handling is tight, not spectacular in corners, but fun enough and the steering is light and fairly responsive. Overall, the designers of the Altima had performance and excitement in mind, not Camry-like ride quality and comfort. It drives as sporty as it looks and I am so glad I own this car. If you enjoy to drive, give the Altima a look!


Best Features

Torque, handling, aggressive exterior looks, interior room


Worst Features

Make more safety features standard, such as ABS and side airbags (2.5S trim). Refine the automatic transmission.

Review

Car is nice looking and fun driving...except for what could have easily been avoided with simple engineering. There is way too much TORQUE STEER. Car would swerve right unless you are prepared and braced at rapid acceleration. Very comfortable for long drives. Also, soft steel used for panels - easily dented in parking lots.


Best Features

Power and comfort! Pretty good trunk and rear legroom, too.


Worst Features

Radio buttons are fragile. Torque steer is unacceptable.
