2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Even though I have only owned my Altima for over a little more than a month I am delighted to get behind the wheel. I think it looks good and I look good in it. It handles well and gets good gas milage as well. So far the dealer has lived up to all of my expectations.


Worst Features

There should be more instrutment lights especially on the steering wheel.

2005 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE-R 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I am a 45-year old mother of five and can I say owning this car has been the most fun! My older kids all want to drive it and show it off to their friends. The younger ones think it's such a treat whenever I let them go for a ride in it. The whole look of the exterior and interior screams luxury sport. And the Code Red color sure does turn heads.


Best Features

Code Red color, luxurious leather interior, tight handling on curves, awesome Bose stereo system, nice size trunk - lots of space.


Worst Features

Warn drivers the sporty, racing tires are NOT meant for snow. On dry and rainy pavement, they're fantastic. But with even a dusting of snow, they're useless.

Review

I love my Altima. I have the luxury of a high priced designer vehicle without the dent in my wallet. I didn't realize that 4 cylanders had such great pickup. It's a pretty car, it's a peppy car, it's a reliable car. Why spen more?

Review

I don't get to drive my SE-R much, but every time I do, I love it! I'm gonna have to get a radar detector cuz it BEGS to be driven well in excess of 60mph. I had a 2003 Altima SE that was great, but this one is a very significant improvement over that one. The road noise issue has been addressed and the interior is much improved from the cheap-feeling plastic stuff that was in the old one. I haven't seen a car in the class that could hope to compete with the thrill factor available here. As good as the car looks parked, it has to be driven to be appreciated. Do NOT get the automatic (though I test drove one and it handles itself well, too!) - you'll be robbing yourself of a lot of joy.


Best Features

The Growl of the engine, particularly at start-up. The handling is superb. The stereo kicks with any type of music. Nissan did a masterful job of appealing to the driving enthusiast here.


Worst Features

The steering wheel controls need to be lighted. The coin holders are in a shoulder-wrenching position. The wheels will spin if you get greedy with the gas when shifting. Fuel economy could be better, particularly since you gotta give it 93 octane. All of these are nit- picky, though. AWESOME CAR!!!
