The lights on it works amazing.

I use my car on a daily basis. It's great for long drives and bumpy roads, drives nice, and the ac is ice cold. I drive about 7 miles to and from work everyday, it's great on gas, and I haven't had any real problems with it. Parts are cheap so that's a plus! I love it! If your a student, just trying to get to and from work it's great!

precious ruby: Enjoyed opening the sunroof and riding along the beautiful countryside.

the car performs very well,all I did was kept schedule matintance up car was roomy very comfortable brakes been changed about four times had all the latest features for that time.Paint has held up very well for it not to be stored in a garage and subjected to the elements year round. Engine very quiet sometimes forgot it was running.

My all around great car goes all over MT

I enjoy driving my Altima it is a-pretty quick, light little car, standard transmission, and does everything from getting family around to statewide trips from west to east. It is a smooth and comfy ride for all and it is relatively good on gas. I have made a couple upgrades on the car, the exhaust and wheels.
