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


Review

I bought this car in March 2011. Since then I have replaced the battery 4 times and alternator twice. Still the same problem continued to happen, it would randomly not start. I ended up having to sell it because it was the most unreliable car. No mechanic could figure out the problem and it was a money hole.

Vehicle

2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have owned 8 performance oriented cars including a 350+ hp WRX.
This blows it away and blows most performance sedans away.
The naysayers will say that is impossible since it is front wheel drive.
Nonsense, drive one and see.
The comfort, torque, reliability, and design is fantastic.
I added some performance bits on it but left the engine and exhaust as is, why change something that works so well.


Best Features

Torque! Leave G35s and 350Zs in your rear view!


Worst Features

Shorter throws on the manual can be fixed via an aftermarket short throw! No complaints here!

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


Review

I brought my 2006 Altima 2.5 S last year with 76000km on the clock, now it is just off 100000km. So far I'm impressed. It's been 100% reliable and great to drive. It's not a ground breaking car but I like it, and look forward to driving it every day. I would have purchased the 3.5 had I been able to, but the 2.5 has enough guts to make it fun to drive. If I could change anything about it I'd make the engine and transmission a bit smoother, and put more feel in the steering.

I would completely recommend this car. When I eventually sell it I will almost definitely be buying the 2007 onwards model.

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


Review

Bought new in 06.
Auto is beautiful and I got and get alot of compliments on it's looks.
I get great miliage on the four cy and enough power in all situations.
Thr car is a great size and I can sit three people in the back comfortably.
I have had no mechanical problems at all.
I have 34.000 hard city miles on it.
I enjoy this auto very much and say it's the best overall performing auto I've owned.
In this area there seems to be a million of the
same model and color (slate Grey)of this model.


Best Features

I like the dash board. attractive and informational in a good format. The size of the car is just perfect. Great fuel miliage on regular gas.


Worst Features

Buying this auto at the dealership was painful. They try ever trick in the book to get you. I finally won out, but it took time and patirnce.

Review

Bought new in 2006, after 102K miles, I can't say enough good things about this car.
Granted, my wife and I are in our late 50s and we're pretty "easy" on cars, but we just wanted a reliable car.
We've had NO problems.
Only maint was rear brakes and 4 new tires and 2 new batteries.
The fact that my wife is willing to drive this car at 102K miles says a LOT about the reliability of this car.
She has NEVER driven any car past 95K miles.
Looks like we'll keep it for a while.


Best Features

good gas mileage, about 27-28 overall, no repairs, limited maint costs. no rattles. reliable. has enough power when needed.


Worst Features

none, car has been great
