2003 Nissan Altima SE 3.5 from North America
Great value and dependable
Only problem I had was the brake rotors needed resurfacing at 7,000 miles - covered under warranty.
This car is a sleeper. Aside from the engine which is a thrill, it is a very roomy and comfortable vehicle.
Reliability has been excellent.
A great value for us - $23,800 purchase price (with an extended full coverage warranty with no deductible) and 0.9% financing!
Overall gas mileage is 23.
Our only complaint is the requirement for premium unleaded. The same engine (with higher horsepower & torque) is in the Maxima and it requires regular unleaded.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had to take my 2003 Altima in for warped rotters two times already -- both times 6 months apart. Both times were covered under warranty, however, I was told that the next time this happens the warranty will have run out. The service techs suspect it will happen again. I was told this was unexpected and isolated. I only have 32K miles on it. I would not buy another Nissan.

I have an 02 maxima, it will not run correctly on regular fuel. Midgrade is a minimum in the car. Runs terrible on regular. Awesome car though, worth every penny.
