2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Yeah, it can be boring to have a reliable car that feels good, is quiet, gets 24 mpg in town and 30 mpg on the highway, and never has had a problem. Well, I'm very happy with boring. This car is probably the best car I've ever owned on a value per dollar basis (during the last 40 years I've had everything from Mercedes, to Jaguar, to Ford, to Mercury, to Chevrolet, to Honda, and now my first Nissan).
This car really is able to go in the snow (that's important here in Omaha during the winter). Also, the car has terrific acceleration (for a 4-cyl) to get up to highway speeds on the on- ramps.
I wish the sheet metal were a little thicker. The doors are prone to small dings (not paint chips) that take about $100 each to fix. Not a big deal.
