2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
My Nissan Altima was ordered the way I wanted it with the sporty features of the SE (spoiler, ground effects) and the luxury of the SL model. This is the first car I've had where I did not have to take it back in for pesky problems or for that matter any problems. My complaints are lack of traction in wet or winter driving (bad road manners) paint that chips and scratches very easily and an upper level stereo system with no MP3 capability.
Very dependable and fuel efficient though it is recommended with the 3.5 engine that you use premium gas. In some of my hwy trips I can get 31 mpg.
TRACTION CONTROL...I had to buy a 1999 Subaru AWD as a 2nd car because of the number of times the Altima has gotten stuck in the snow and ice. The car also slips on wet surfaces.
