2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my 2003 Altima because my 1989 Altima was on it's last legs at 190000 miles. It was a great car and my newer one is even better. We do not take car of our vehicles as we should with constant maintenance but they have kept performing anyhow.
The 3.5L V6 engine is the best. This thing gets up and goes when you need it too. It also has outstanding breaks.
Would like to get less road noise. You can hear a lot from outside the car. But, I still highly recommend it.
2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
I bought the car brand new in June, it had to be towed to the dealership because of the sensor (1) in October 2003, in September of 2004 the car stalled out at the light and an 18 wheeler was approaching fast, I thank Jesus for answered pray, the car started up enough to get it out of the way, I had to get another sensor (2) replaced. 2009 all three sensors (3) went out and there was a recall on two of them (Midas found them) but Nissan never sent the notices out nor did they honor them. I fought to get the cost down to $3,000.00 for them to be fixed and 7 months later the crankshaft sensor (4) went out again, they replaced it because it was under the 12 months or 10,000 miles.
I didnt want to run out and purchase another MISTAKE that is why I gave up the $3,000.00, but it all worked out by prayer for my better good.
I had the car detailed and took it to Car Max, my tires were 2 years old and I had a full spare in the trunk with 97,000 miles. Car Max gave me over the excellent condition price in the Kelly Blue Book, so I got back my 3,000 and then some. The service department employees were Very rude at Herb

This car looks very nice, but is a mechanical nightmare. Every sensor on this car starting going bad at 50k and catalytic conv at 80k. Nissan said cat ruined engine and needs a new engine (bad placement of cat). Lots of other people with same problem...would not recommend this car. Also own a Infiniti G35...no problems..think the problem is with set up of the Altima. If your under 80k Nissan will only fit cat, not your engine :(...They know about the problems but don't care.
Fix mechanical problems
2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
This vehicle has done well even in the extreme temperatures that we have here in Canada. I'm in sales and as a result spend alot of time in my vehicle. My hats off to the company for making such a great car. I'm picking up my new one on Saturday!
2003 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
First let me say that I am meticulous about upkeep and basic maintenance (oil changes, etc.) My Altima, with 139,000 km's (100,000 miles) on it absolutely self- destructed over the past two weeks. For no reason that I or any mechanic can find the engine suddenly (over two days) burned out all of it's oil and then scored the cylinders so badly that it needs to be replaced. I never really enjoyed this car. It looked great, but handled like a girls car. It was always sort of "dainty" and overly sensitive to steering inputs. Also, the plastic used in the interior components and the boot around the gear-stick were of extremely low quality.
The engine (when it ran properly) was fairly peppy. The trunk is a good size.
I don't care what you do. I'll never trust another Nissan product.
