Yeah, maybe not THAT car, ha ha. But overall I was impressed with the Altima in general. Keep in mind, I have no interest in purchasing a new car at this time, I just was telling a story about when I drove one. It seems like many people have nothing at all to do but to sit on this site all day bashing people's reviews.

Yes I read your review, it said - "The only problem I had was every time I filled up, I had no oil!!" now you say -

"I never let the car get too low in oil."

Well since you are a mechanic, you certainly must know that "no oil" is "too low" :)

Original reviewer here:

To the most recent comment; excuse me, I am so sorry that my generalization (the no oil comment) did not fit your expectations of what your definition of a perfect review should be. It's just a story about a car that I rented two years ago and haven't seen since.

Oh by the way, I only checked the oil the first time because it is a habit of mine to check all fluids when I fill up, a consequence of driving old cars LOL. I saw that the dipstick showed almost almost dry. The car had no other symptoms of being low in oil (knocking, ticking, running rough) and from that moment on I kept oil in it. I'm sure it went to a dealer who replaced the oil control valve and had a long life on the original engine. And if it did not, who cares? It's a rental. You missed the point of the review, I was impressed that the car did NOT have more problems than it did as a result of its condition, and I was happy it got me home. Hopefully that elaboration meets your requirements. If not then do as your mama said, "If you can't say nothing nice, say nothing at all."
