"This car good has been very reliable. I have regular check ups and maintenance. It's never given me any problems. The check engine light comes on without cause a bit too frequently, but that's all I've been concerned with. The gas mileage isn't as good as many Japanese made cars, but I think the added room and comfort accounts for that. It feels safe and it feels solid. Those are both important factors to me for driving safety and maneuverability. Visibility is very good on all angles. I highly recommend this car."
"I've owned this car for about 10 months now and everything was great. I'm now having some alternator problems a little earlier than I expected. Also, now I'm having some wheel bearing problems as well. Everything else seems to be working fine now, I just hate being without a car right now."
Cons: "Problems still came too soon for my taste though."

"2006 Nissan Altima, I purchased mine in 2009. I give a rating of 6 because this car didn't give me any problems for the 6 years I had it. Up until 140K miles, Radiator blew out which caused problem after problem, leading to a cylinder misfire (after I got a tune up, go figure) oil started getting into my gasket which has messed up the engine. It gave me the incentive to finally get something else."
"I've had my Altima for about a year. It is running great. It has been an extremely reliable vehicle for me. Changing the oil and the transmission fluid has been the only maintenance it has needed in the last year. This car is surprisingly powerful, has great acceleration, and gets good gas mileage. The interior is big with lots of space;five people can fit comfortably. It has a basic design, there are no unnecessary extras in the interior. The exterior design is very appealing. My only real complaint about my car is that it has lots of road noise. If the radio is off, I can hear every bump it drives over. Although it's nothing you cant get used to."
Cons: "Front floor pans rust through due to poor design."

"The only problem I ever had with this car was rust. Both front floor panels on drivers side and passenger side are rotted. I researched this and found it to be a common problem. Nissan however never recalled this issue knowing there is a rust problem. Because they failed to stand behind there product, I no longer buy any Nissan products."
