"I agonized over buying a non-American built automobile. I had one brother working for GM and another for Chrysler. This 2004 Nissan Altima has been the most cost efficient and stylish car I have ever owned. I can't tell you how many compliments I have gotten. People can't believe it's as old as it is. Just this year, the ball joints wore out. Other than that, and one sensor, it has been regular maintenance: oil changes, brakes, tires."

"I bought my 2.5 Altima new in 2003. It's been a wonderful car, very reliable and beautifully styled. I am only thinking of trading it in because it is 11 years old, has a lot of miles on it and I'm trying to be proactive and replace it before it develops serious problems. Still, it will be hard to part with it and I just might keep it another year or two."

"Changed oil and checked fluids every 3,000 miles; have tires rotated on schedule; changed serpentine belt by choice as I was making a 1200 mile round trip when the car was six years old; replaced brake shoes about five years in and that is it...the car looks like and drives like the day I bought it. And the best part is that I paid $15,000 for it new, with a 5 year old trade. I am passing it off to my granddaughter and I plan to buy another new Nissan (my fourth)!"

"Have owned since'08. the car is an SL series with lots of options (Bose multi-CD stereo, sunroof, heated leather seats. We have put lots of road miles on this car (50% or more)with no problem other than minor electrical(loss of power window programming, battery replacement).Great fuel economy (30+ mpg on trips), handling, comfort. Very roomy for its size (trunk space is superb). The main drawback I have is the close proximity of the wiper control switch to the steering wheel (always hitting the switch when steering). I would definitely buy again. Fun driver!"
