Great value and performance
By dkeehn2 on
2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)
If you love the G35 but not the price, this is your car. Other than badging and the grill, it is nearly identical. Same 3.5 liter engine that's in the G35 or 350Z. A little less bling than the G cars, but I spent THOUSANDS less for more or less the same car. It is front wheel drive instead of rear wheel drive, as the G is. OK, so "real" sports cars are rear wheel drive. Fine. I prefer the front wheel drive for bad weather situations and this car is still a rocket. Absolutely no problems with it. Good build quality.
Looks, performance, reliability.
The stick shift is a little balky, but I'm used to it.
