Great First Foreign by Jimmy D the V on 08/03/2010. Trim: 2004 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Great room, great handling, great acceleration, great looks, great prices. What else can one ask for? My friends with other cars always comment how great my car is - VW Passat, Chevy Malibu, Saturn L-3000, Olds Intrigue, even an older Altima. It's a great car for taller and bigger people. The front doors are larger and have more entry room than my grandpa's 1989 Lincoln Towncar (a boat). Love the accelerated handling, the PRO features (hold the LOCK on your fob & watch what happens or just one push on the sunroof or windows and watch the AUTO take over). My sound system has caused my coworkers to ask how much it cost me to install it. I haven't told them yet it came basic and installed.
Cons: Turning radius is horrible. You should request a bumper sticker that says "Caution: Vehicle Makes Wide Turns" Not so perfect in snowy conditions. I miss my SUV so much I think I am going to buy another or trade based on winter driving alone. Great summer/rain car, not so wintery. Key fob ink disappears and you have to memorize your buttons Timing chain maintenance costs more than the car is worth, according to dealer estimates. Stay away from dealerships when maintenance is due. They quoted me $2k to fix the problem, an independent mechanic quoted $330 which included brand parts and an oil change. Haven't had the problem since. Lack of oil pressure causes noise in engine. FYI!!
Overall review: Love this car. If it only had 4WD and a non-trucker turning radius. Can't live without my sunroof!!
