I bought my Altima on lease through the great lease special that was on the Altima. Its been a great car. I love the huge trunk, audio controls on the steering wheels and I can squeal tires with the 4-cylinder. That is crazy. I love the features for the price.


Best Features

Auto up and down windows, huge trunk, audio and cruise controls on the steering wheel, reliability


Worst Features

Review

This is 5 th Altima I have used. I drive them for business, 45,000 miles a year. I get a new car at 3 years or 120,000 miles. In that time we put tires and 1 set brakes and normal service. Fuel mileage is better than sticker 31 MPG + on highway. They are so good that my wife takes old Altima and uses it until I have to get another. When she is ready for newer car, it has between 150,000 and 160,000 miles on it and still have had not had any major work.


Best Features

Just keeps going with out any problems.


Worst Features

Better color selection would like a diesel

2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my third Altima and have been very pleased with each one, The cars rides very nice and I love the special edition package, and the alloy wheels give it an upgraded look, I am getting 29 mpg! I leased the car with the replaced engine and got the added warranty and the added rebate so it made it a heck of a deal!! All I ever do to these cars is just normal service, They have never let me down.


Best Features

Steering wheel audio controls, power seat, auto headlights, overhead console,for a factory stereo I think its great!


Worst Features

none that I can think of, A very enjoyable car.

Review

My wife and I took a two week trip to Vegas, Phoenix then back to Canada. We put on over 4,000 miles. In all areas the car performed very well. Handling and performance threw the mountains was great. The car accelerated very well on the long climbs and it cruised at 75-80 mph very nicely and a quiet ride. We found the seats surprisingly very comfortable on the long trip. Over all we are very pleased with this purchase. The only thing I noticed during this trip was that the speedometer appeared to read incorrectly. After several checks it was determined that it was out by 6.6%. I took it to the dealer when I got back and they ordered a new gear for it. Note: I would have yours checked.


Best Features

Styling, Silver colour exterior. The trip computer and of coarse the steering wheel controls, there quite a nice feature, standard ABS disks sure feel nice when you need them,, all is good,,,


Worst Features

Sunroof with the SE package would have been nice as well as fog lights as I live in a part of British Columbia where fog is an issue. Again, I would see your dealer about the speedo issue as mine was reading too high. Example is if I was doing 60 mph the speedo indicated I was doing 64 mph.
