Beautiful but engine blown after 68miles
By Allen King on


2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


My silver 3.5SE coupe was a sight to be seen. The interior styling is sleek and modern. The Bose stereo sounds crisp and clear, and is paired to a crisp NAV display. The car drove smooth yet powerful and handled very well. Unfortunately after 20 hours of ownership and 68 miles driven, the engine "blew" (Nissan service center's words). Nissan refuses to replace the car, their final decision is to only replace the engine.

Best Features

Bose sound system paired to the nav system, tight short throw 6 speed manual transmission, and finally the interior styling.

Worst Features

Quality control of parts, complaints to Nissan Consumer Affairs go unresolved.
