Good but with its faults
By Ivan on


2003 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


The interior is cheap and pretty ugly. The turning radius is worse than a Ford Explorer. The cabin pressure is set up so that with the front two windows down theres alot of wind and pressure (compared to my 96 Maxima) but ok with all four windows down. The steering wheel is off to the left a bit and my seat seems to be facing slightly to the left, either way its not straightforward and it makes driving a bit uncomfortable. That last part is my real pet peeve. The circular dashboard is annoying too. Basically the whole interior stinks but I've had it since 52,000 miles (67 now) and no major repairs needed so far, its pretty fast, handles well (except for u-turns) and ok to look at.

Best Features

Speed, reliability, gas consumption (as compared to my previous Titan).

Worst Features

Whole interior. Needs better upholstery and needs to put steering wheel directly in front of driver seat (no weird angles).
