2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I owned this car for over 2 years, and can't really complain. For a 4 cyl, this car rips. Passing IS NOT a problem. It gets 26-30 mpg and I romp on the gas frequently. Other than a few stone chips, the ext is in great condition. The wheels, hub caps and steel rims should be outlawed. The brakes are the only thing that has given me problems. I've noticed other owners making the same comment. Nissan needs to improve the breaks. The interior looks a little cheap, but it is comfortable, very roomy, and has held up very good. I prefer my Altima over my Xterra in < 4" of snow. After hearing from friends and family about the problems with their "big 3" car, I know I made a great decision!

Best Features

Very quick, handles good, comfortable and roomy interior, folding rear seats, low profile.

Worst Features

Needs better brakes! Slight road noise. Ignition acts up from time to time. sometimes it turns over right away, other times it takes 5 to 10 seconds.
