2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


The Altima is a great car. When weighed against the Accord, though, there are several shortcomings including: Five speed auto, standard ABS, heated mirrors, arm rest extension, and 10000 mile oil change intervals, and interior materials, to name a few. I bought the Nissan because of the dealership and because it's not as common as the Accord. The Altima has more power and (seemingly) more room plus features the Accord doesn't have like BOSE and a trip computer. I can recommend this car, but buyers should take both for a ride!

Best Features

BOSE!, design, engine flexibilty, quietness

Worst Features

Get rid of the cheap plastics in the flimsy center console. Make ABS standard for a $25,000+ 2.5SL! Get a five-speed auto in the 2.5 as well! Heated mirrors, too!
