I love my Nissan Altima! Due to extreme wear and tear caused by myself through its "so far" ten year life span, I've had a few usual 120k mile issues but nothing that's caused me to want another car. Built to last, this Altima will stay with me till the day it dies and I have a feeling it'll be my 15-month-old daughter's first car! Its been through hell and back, literally, but I am very happy...

I loved this car but I had several front disc brake jobs and they still made noise and I got fed up with it so I traded it for a new vehicle. It had great pep and handling.

I have over 100,000 miles on my car and the only thing I have spent money on is every day wear and tear items example, brakes, tires, tune ups. Overall, I would rate this car a 5 STAR Rating. Definently would buy another Altima. I am very satisfied. Still runs very well, body is still in excellent shape.
