2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I must say I have only had this car
for a week but I really like it. I am
a little concerned by all the "issues"
I have read about like the MAF sensor
going bad, and I have already
experienced the warm air coming thru
the vent even when on the coolest
settings, but I must say I still love
this car. There are some kinks still
but the styling and the performance
with fuel economy have sold me. As
long as I dont get stranded or have
any major repair bills I consider this
the best car I have purchased to date.
Time will tell.


Best Features

Exterior styling, performance, and fuel economy is why I bought this car.


Worst Features

Fix warm air venting, MAF sensor, short trip no start where you can only start the car in neutral, restrictive airdam, cheap plastic interior, oddly shaped steering wheel that hurts your hands after short trips, orange lighting gauges (make it a pleasant color) and cheap paint

2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Very nice car for the money. I looked
at the Saab 9-5, and the Toyota Solara
and this is a better car for less
money.The car looks great and is solid.
You will get looks in this ride. The
optional side sills are a nice touch.


Best Features

Bose stereo, leather seats, interior room.


Worst Features

Sunroof...hard to tell when its closed tight.

corrected on time. 3 times for repair
and only 11 months old.

Review

This car is spectacular, so far.
Although, I have only had this car for
one day, I would venture to say that I
am in for a fun few years of driving.
The torque steer is a bit to get used
to, but seriously we are talking about
a car that has 245 horse power and 246
foot pounds of torque. This car is an
f'ing monster. Every nissan I have
ever owned or driven has been high
quality and this car is no exception.
Highly recommended !


Best Features

strong V6, smooth ride and handling. beautiful design. great price for what you get


Worst Features

Dealers need to have more cars available with standard transmission. The center arm rest is a bit weak on the material side of things (build quality slightly lacking inside).
