2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I recently purchased a 2006 Altima and I love it! I bought a used 1994 Altima 3 years ago and it's still going strong after 12 years so I trust the Nissan brand. As for the 2006 model I would definitely recommend upgrading to the one with a sunroof and alloy wheels...it's worth the extra money for the sunroof alone. It's comfortable and everything from the seat to the steering wheel adjusts to the driver's preferences. The ride is smooth except there is a minor jerk when accelerating from 1st to 2nd. The sleek exterior is great and looks unique compared to any other car on the road. Now if they could only find a way to get rid of the new car smell...
Controls on the steering wheel, look of the gear shift and gages, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, sunroof, the look of the tailights, tons of places to store stuff, roomy interior, fully adjustable driver seat, huge trunk, 1,700 cash back rebate, mud flaps, outside temperature
Minor stuff- The front doors open far and it's hard to reach them to close, the transmission jerks slightly from 1st to 2nd, side air bags would be nice, cloth interior looks cheap like terry cloth, the armrest is too far back but it makes room for the cup holders so I don't mind
