"My wife and I bought our 2003 Altima 3.5SE used in 2006 with 44,000 miles on it. The car has been great overall. We haven't had one problem with it. We've taken it on many trips and the V6 has a great amount of power and it gets great gas mileage for a 3.5 V6, we average 32mpg on the highway! I would recommend this car to anybody."
"Great car. Bought used from Hertz at 35,000 miles in 2005 (used for intra-city driving). Spectacular PM records were provided and car was in excellent condition.
Have driven both for long trips and intracity -- great handling, quiet, smooth, very high quality vehicle. "Pickup" is a little low for some DC driving situations, but that's the engine I bought and I'll lie in the bed I made.
Has not failed, ever.
Legroom is great for driver and passenger, and spectacular even by SUV standards in the rear. Trunk space is cavernous -- can fit six golf bags and 3 cases of beer with room to spare.
Have been in two relatively minor accidents -- one sitting, one at speed -- (not my fault) and in both cases four passengers emerged without a bruise or soreness the next day.
Have been able to avoid several accidents due to excellent handling. Hit big patch of black ice on a hard turn a few months ago and began to spin -- was able to bring the car back under control almost immediately and turn away from a tree at the last second without losing command.
I cannot recommend this car enough... My brother got a 2007 -- which was a little too "fly-by-wire" for me (no feedback from the wheel). When my 2003 breaks at 200,000 miles, I won't even look at any other model to replace it."
"I bought my Altima in December 2006 and I absolutely love it. It is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I have added a few things for personal touch but overall it came with everything I was looking for. And I gave up a Mustang for my Altima."
