Imagine you're the captain of an enormous boat. This boat is huge, fairly slow, but very comfortable. This about sums up the Altima.
While the car has been relatively good for 2 years that I owned it, I feel I must speak about the repeated problems I've had with the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors.
The car will sometimes have a hard time starting. This worrying fact has caused me to sell the car at a steep discount.
The car is very roomy and comfortable. Nissan knows how to make a great sounding sound system. The NDSS 6x9's in the back seriously sound like after market bass.
Sadly, the only Nissan I may ever buy would be a GT-R, but at their prices, that will not likely happen.
So long, good bye, and never again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
