2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Having owned this pre-owned Altima for several months now, I can safely say that I'm glad I bought this car. More power, room and economy than my previous car. The car looks great inside and out. No mechanical issues except a fuel-starved engine from parking on an incline (hard start afterwards). Luxury touches like auto windows, trip 'puter and power seat are nice. Overall, no mechanical issues. Some of the coloring/dye in plastic has worn through and leather on steering wheel too. "Wood" trim scratches easily. Nothing deal-breaking: no trim falling off, no significant squeaks or rattles. Fuel econ: 24 city/32 hwy -- 20 gal tank

Best Features

Performance! Luxury features. Plenty of room. Big trunk. 500+ mile range on highway. Telescoping wheel. Get plenty of compliments.

Worst Features

I'm sure it was fine for 2005, but it now needs an aux plug for the radio. Cheap feel to center console and ALL buttons. Biggest annoyance: fuel light comes on with 5 gal left and flashes distance to empty on trip 'puter as "----" below 20. Not helpful.
