Great pick up coming from a 1998 Nissan Altima.
Great on gas, about 400miles to the tank.
Very nimble.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Nissan Altima?

2005 Nissan Altima Review:
Owned a 1998 Altima, now a 2005 then hopefully a 2015. Only buy Nissans - very very reliable. I only changed battery and a bulb on the 1998. So far the 2005 is perfect!

Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Nissan Altima?
EVERY THING AS IT IS LIGHT WEIGHT CAR. A REAL HOT ROD. LOOK AT THOSE ALUMINUM SWING ARMS SUPPORTING THE WHEELS. NOT DINOSAUR STUFF LIKE THE HEAVY AMERICAN CARS.

NOTHING. IT'S GREAT JUST LIKE IT IS.

2005 Nissan Altima Review:
LOOK AT HOW MUCH TORQUE THE MOTOR HAS COMPARED TO HONDA & TOYOTA. VERY QUICK OFF THE LINE. LOVE THIS LITTLE JEWEL AS IT PERFECT FOR ME, A RETIRED MECHANIC.

Factory brakes and tires were garbage.

I will NEVER buy another Nissan.
Resale value is pathetic too.

Quality is not job 1 at NISSAN...
