This particular year was littered with mechanical problems.

My Nissan Altima has had nothing but problems since I purchased it from the dealership. The engine has had to be replaced and many parts have needs replacement. I understand that vehicles need maintenance, but this is excessive. The interior has also not held up well. The paneling around the air conditioner has cracked from heat and the cover over the gauges has also come undone. It does not get great gas mileage for a sedan and the gas gauge is also not functioning properly. The plus sides are that the car does have decent space and that the tires and brakes have lasted a considerable amount of time.

- Jacque S

I currently own a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S The standard features of the Nissan Altima 2.5 S include 2.5L I-4 175HP engine, 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, airbag occupancy sensor, air conditioning, 16" steel wheels, cruise control, power mirrors, power windows, power locks, remote keyless entry, and AM/FM stereo in-dash mounted single CD with 6 speakers. I drive, per work week (5 days) 200+ miles. I have had limited problems except the standard tune up, alternator and fan belt problems. I will always own a Nissan because of the durability, Limited engine problems, and high mileage

It's a well working vehicle to have a road trip in.

Very spacious great engine, comfortable for long distance driving seats are great. Automatic mirrors Nissan has great car long lasting parts and their parts are very cheap very affordable. Low mileage and was very affordable. I have a Nissan Altima and it is a four door, so it works well for having a child. Very spacey to get in or out. To fit a car seat with no problem and also a lot of truck space. I love that I can be in the car comfortably. It drive very smoothly, you can barely feel driving over bumps. It really is an excellent car to have.
