"This is absolutely the best vehicle I have ever owned! Reliable, stylish, roomy and quick. The car is now 8 years old and I still enjoy the looks and performance of my Altima 3.5! In fact I still get plenty of compliments on it. The only negative I have found to this car and it is actually a very minute one, is the turning radius. It would be nice if it were a little tighter taking a couple of extra swings pulling into tight spaces but that's about the only negative. I bought this car new from the dealer and have no intentions of parting with it any time soon. This is the longest I have ever kept a vehicle. Very pleased indeed!"
"I bought the 2.5S model brand new in Aug of 2003. Since then, I've replaced a few things like the battery & radiator which were both within the first year and covered under the warranty. I'm good about oil changes every 3K miles but not so much on scheduled maintenance. I've got 115,000 miles on it now and it still runs great. I've always loved the style of this car and it's always been very reliable. The only issue I had was the fuel sensor went out on me and, although it was a minor problem, it happened to be in the gas tank which they had to drop to get to it. The result was a nearly $700 repair bill.
Overall, I love this car and would buy another one. I've had a Ford, Pontiac & Dodge before this and none of them ever made it to 100K miles."
