Recommended to anyone looking for a dependable car.
Front back pads replaced at 138,000 miles.
Passenger side CV Axle replaced at 138,000 miles.
Front wheel bearings replaced at 143,000 miles.
The car is a quite good handling car.
Is not the most comfortable interior, but fairly comfortable and does have good functions.
Very low maintenance car that will be on the road forever. I have put 13,000 miles on the car in 4 months. Out of 23 vehicles before this here car it is the best car I have ever owned.
The small 4 cylinder gets great gas mileage of 25mpg city and 30mpg highway. It also has a lot of power for a small motor, and acts more like a six cylinder on power.
I used this vehicle as my primary response vehicle for the rescue team I was with until getting a Ford Ranger and knocking the Altima down to a secondary response vehicle, and it served me very well considering the abuse it has received. It still gets driven several times weekly as my truck is always breaking down.
Nissan out did their-selves on this car, and once again proves to me foreign cars will always be better than American any time of the day. I don't think I could part with this car for $100,000 considering how well it has served me. If anything ever happens to this car, I can garuntee I'll buy me another Altima.
The rescue team I am with is even thinking about purchasing several Altimas for our command officers as a patrol vehicle because of the great MPG and quality of them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
