2006 SE-R Automatic
By Rob on
2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
For the money one of the best sports sedans on the road. Linear speed, top- of-the line tires and wheels, and great- looking to boot! Had it for one month and I look forward to driving it every chance I get. Carries 3 kids in comfort in the back and rides beautifully. Does have torque steer but that's normal for a powerful FWD V-6. Make sure to buy the air bag-TCs option for safety. Considered the Acura TL, Maxima, and the Mazdaspeed 6. No regrets about the choice. See below for potential improvements.
Great speed. Aggressive look and stance. Dual stainless exhausts (large). Comfortable seats. BOSE radio - great sound.
Paint job needs work. Attracts dust inside and out like a magnet. Interior covers on storage are a bit flimsy. Lose the gauges and make room for a navigation system.
