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

Review

Overall, this is a decent car. Gas mileage good, decent highway and uphill acceleration. Very nice-looking car. But after driving it for 3 years I am so glad my lease is up. The 2 major drawbacks of this car is 1) horrible in the snow, especially if there is any type of uphill slope-2) terrible brake design. I could never make it up any type of hill in the snow with this car. Never felt safe driving this in the snow. Paid extra to have very good snow tires put on last winter and performance in snow still crappy! And now at 29K miles the rear brakes (pads and rotors) are completely shot! And Nissan won't do a thing about it even though they know its a problem. Front brakes are fine- go figure!

Best Features

Attractive car. Good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Nissan needs to improve Altima's performance in the snow. Horrible! They also need to do something about the rear brakes wearing so quickly and before the front brakes. How is that even possible? This is a common problem and obvious flaw yet the consumer is financially responsible for fixing.
