2005 Nissan Altima Sedan S

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

This is a very reliable car. It works very well. It gets fairly decent gas mileage. My car gets about 23 miles to the gallon on the freeway and about 20 in town. I have taken it on multiple road trips with great success. It is very comfortable with leather seats and electric controls for the seats. It has seat heaters that work very well. The heating and air conditioning work very well. The only issue I have had with this car is difficulty driving in the snow. It is very low to the ground and gets stuck easily.

A car for Cruising along in comfort.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

The car experiences dull seals that can create transmission leaks than need a special transmission fluid to fix. The car can experience starter problems but fortunately the starter is very easy to reach right under the air pump, and requires only a few tools to fix, and gets you a great value back for selling the starter core back to an automotive company.

Overall my Nissan Altima has been a decent car.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Warning lights come on and there no explanation as to why. Also I have a RPM problem that I still can't figure out. The paint job on it is horrible. It has faded away in many different areas on the car. Also the interior of the car is beige and when having young kids they make a mess sometimes and there is no product that will get out those stains.

Comfortable seating, good viewing of surroundings.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I bought second hand and was really happy at first, comfortable back seats, smooth driving. Now after two years I am having a lot of problems with a/c, windows, motor problems. I am uncertain if these problems are because it is from 2005 or because it's not a good make. It does not have many features, nothing is technologically advanced.

White Nissan Altima with all black interior

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

It is very spacious on the interior as well as in the trunk. It drives pretty well and smoothly. Gas mileage is okay, could be better considering that there are other cars out there with better gas mileage. The car itself is pretty easy to maintain as well as not too expensive. About the normal range for most cars.

- Hope M

My Nissan Altima is amazing.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I love my Nissan Altima. It makes a great family car. There is plenty of room for everyone to ride comfortably. I have had it for about 2 years and have not had any problems with it. The trunk is very big so there is no need to worry about where you are going to put all of your belongings.

Rough on the outside, but it'll work.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

We've only had a few scattered problems here and there with the car, but nothing that wasn't fixable. Tires and motor were very well taken care of before. Seats were only slightly damaged, but nothing too bad. The gas gauge however, is not clear on whether it works or not sometimes.

- Emily P

Great car to drive around in

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I bought the vehicle used. It has a chipped windshield, leak in the power steering and burns oil, but is the best driving car I've ever had. It fits five people comfortably and has tons of customizable opens. I just wish it was black. Like I said it's still a great daily driver.

Reliable and Long Lasting

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

This car is very comfortable for long drives. It drives smooth. Decent gas mileage as well! I have had my Nissan Altima for about 2 years now and put on a total of about 40,000 miles since buying it pre-owned. It is at around 180,000 and still going strong with no major issues!

The 2005 big ole' stallion.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Really sleek affordable car that rides smooth and has little to no maintenance issues. I have had it for over ten years and only had 2 maintenance issues both being minor. It gets about 50 miles to the gallon inland and on road. Very comfy lots of space and great trunk room.

- Christian W

Body is in great shape for it is age.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Best car ever, never a big mechanical or electrical issue. Always starts, great in snow. Very little recalls. Oil changed regularly. Not afraid to drive this car anywhere runs like new, suspension is very good. Minimal maintenance of oil changes and tires and brakes,etc.

- Gary B

My vehicle is unique on its own, having a very wide turning radius.

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My car is very reliable, although it's had some issues when reaching 100,000 miles. I've had to replace an engine coil as well as a the rack and pinion. My next repair will have to be the catalytic converter. So far expensive repairs but I love driving it.

2005 beige Nissan Altima 2.5 S

2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

There is nothing wrong with the car it has brand new everything because of an accident. I just want a standard and I don't like the gold color of the car. It's very reliable and comfortable. A little under 150,000 miles. Brand new radio and body kit.
