a poor man's BMW
By Ravi Viswanathan on


2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


I was one of the very few who bought
this car when it was available from
Oct'02. I compared this car against
Acura 3.2 TL Maxima 2002 and decided
that this car is the one for me.
When I test drove the car I was amazed
@ the pick-up and handling.I have
driven BMW 3&5, Mercedes c-320,
Cadiilac CTS, Acura 3.2 TL, Audi 4.5.
This car for the price you pay, offers
about 80% the performance of these
cars @ about 55% of their price.
My friend who bought an Audi 4.2 for
about 55000 dollars had this much to
"My car is twice as costly as this
Altima, but it does not give twice as
much performance as this".

Best Features

Acceleration and handling, Sound System

Worst Features

Interior material quality and a smoother suspension like BMW. Nissan could have made the interior a little more posh like the Acura or a high end Camry/Accord. But to offset this, I bought the car fully loaded with the leather interior
