2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I use to have to shut off the AC on my
2001 Altima to excellerate on to I-4.
Now I have to hold on tight, what
smooth power! Doing 80 and geting 30
mpg is outragous! What a car!


Best Features

The sound system is tight, the engine is tremendous!

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


Review

We bought this vehicle in the 2002
model for our daughter. We were so
pleased with it that we bought the 2003
model for our son early (before he was
eligible to drive). That gave me the
time to have the pleasure of driving it
for 9 months. Then, I had to turn it
over and go back to driving my 2000
Infiniti I30t.


Best Features

It's roominess/size; It's very sleek design (Lexus'GS models have nothing on this model); It's speed/performance; It's price tag


Worst Features

There does seem to be some body roll. Fuel economy could be better as with all Nissan products.

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


Review

Truly a wonderful automobile. It is my
wife’s car and she doesn't like a harsh
ride so we went with the 2.5S but the
performance belies the four cylinders.
It is no racer but has peppy
performance and great comfort. Great
rear seat room, huge trunk. At its best
on the highway. Good acceleration,
smooth and stable ride plus great
mileage. The styling is the Altimas
greatest strength. It makes a statement
in class populated by "never took a
chance, never will" styling. I
recommend this car for many reasons but
the biggest is the overall package.
Styling, Roominess, performance, and
price.If you buy the 2.5S, consider the
Convenience Package.


Best Features

Head and taillight design. Trip computer is fun to play with and has a bit of functionality. Brakes, great stopping force, linear stopping and no fade unless pushed VERY hard. Telescoping wheel. 20 gallon gas tank!


Worst Features

Put proper tires on this car, the EL42's are garbage and a really poor corner to cut. They are not up to the engine, brakes or suspension on this car. Put a cigarette lighter and ashtry, let me decide weather or not to use the ashtray for change.

Review

Shortly after buying my Altima, I drove
it several hundred miles on vacation.
It drove well, was very comfortable,
and got great gas mileage right away.
After 4 months, I am very satisfied
with my Altima, however, I would not
return to Autoway Nissan/Clearwater
because of poor treatment by the sales
manager there.My salesperson was great,
but the sales manager was the
typical "slick car salesman" who was
quite disrespectful once the
negotiations began. Autoway Nissan got
the sale by default. Too bad because
Nissan makes a quality product.


Best Features

Great gas mileage; stylish; comfortable interior; outstanding safety features; good standard features; affordable price.


Worst Features

Standard automatic headlights and lighted interior mirrors would be an improvement. Also, Nissan was not offering any type of rebate or other incentives on the Altima, even though they were offered on other models.
