2004 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This was a great car 'til it hit 40,000 miles. Now I have problems that the dealer can't fix. The car shakes and vibrates then kills. The check engine light comes on. The dealer checked the computer and changes sensors at $250 a pop and the car runs good for a day than the problems start over. This is my first and last Nissan!!!!!!

Great looks


Worst Features

put a computer system that has a better memory so it can give you better error messaging.

Review

I have had so many problems with this car. It doesn't start some mornings, they tell me this is normal. I also am not getting good gas mileage whatsoever. I cannot believe that people are having good luck with this car, I have had nothing but problems.

Review

The Nissan Altima has been the best car I've ever purchased. I have the 2.5 engine, but it drives like a V6. When I first test drove the Altima, it took a while for me to get used to the acceleration. This car is powerful and very fun to drive. The fuel efficicency is good, especially in todays high gas prices.


Best Features

Very nice interior, not easily stained. Good sound system.


Worst Features

More dash board "toys", i.e., digital readout.Heated outside mirrors.

Review

I have only had to put the car into the shop once. Outside of routine oil changes the thing runs like a dream. I do notice a little wind noise around the windows, but have had this on every car I've owned. It has excellent interior space and is a pleasure to drive.


Best Features

I like that you can disable to trunk release for valeting your car.


Worst Features

Make the steering wheel based audio controls a standard feature. Also move the rear-defrost button. (I find it a little hard to reach while driving.
