#4812 of 4962 My Altima Concern!
May 05, 2005 (12:05 pm)
Hello. I own a 1997 Nissan Altima and I can say that this peice of work is a beast. This baby pulls me through all of the obsticals needed to get around in everyday life. There is only one things about my ride that bothers me.... I attend High School in Salem, Oregon, and most of our "girl population" owns the exact same car. Now I want to come off as a pimp, and this is hard to accomplish with these ladies. Is there anything that I can do to spice up my car a notch to bring more ladies to me because of my car without getting a new one? I don't want to follow the ladies....I want them to follow me.

Um, you might want to stop by our brand new Speed Shop: Tuning & Modification board and see what's cookin' there. But I don't think we have any place around here where the primary goal is to mod a car to come off as a pimp and get the ladies to follow you.

If you want the girls to follow you, convince your parents to lease you a G35 (or at least a new Altima). Nothing else you do will change the situation, unless you're well-endowed.
BTW, that reminds me when I was watching the news a few days ago. They were talking about parents using GPS to track their kids when they drive. There was one family who bought their 16 year old son a new 2005 G35 Coupe. Damn, I was lucky to get a used car when I was 18. Fortunately, I can buy one now if I wanted to.
#4816 of 4962 3.5 SE VS 3.5 SER
May 18, 2005 (5:43 pm)
Have been shopping for quite some time. Have driven two different SER"s, and one of them did seem to have more tire noise that the other. Feeling is that quality control at Bridgestone may be the culpret. Same day drove a 3.5 SE with mismatched tires, and thought I had driven a car with four snow tires! Seems that frame architecture may be a very easy route for the vibrations caused by the type of tire.
Had my heart set on a Silver SER with the Red/Charcaol seats, but the dealer with that one in stock wants almost $1K more for one at another Silver SER with the Gray/Charcoal interior. Was informed that the Red/Charcoal is VERY difficult to get.
Tested a Green 3.5 SE MSRP about $1K less than the SER. While most of the vehicles are identical, my heart goes with the SER.
#4817 of 4962 Altima SE-R compass
May 18, 2005 (5:48 pm)
Forgot to include this with my previous message. Want to get an compass for the car, should I purchase. Found out a interior rear view mirror with compass can be purchased from the Nissan dealers parts department for about $280. The dealer want about another $250 in install. Any one out there know of an alternative?

On the mirror, find out the MSRP of it as a factory installed option and insist on that price! I have the auto dimming mirrow with compass on my 03 2.5 S. I think that was about $250 as a factory installed option.
#4819 of 4962 My Nissan Altima 2002 stalls all the time
Jun 02, 2005 (6:26 am)
My Nissan Altima 2002 stalls all the time, as soon as it hits 2500 RPM.
Per the Hudson Nissan the problem is being caused by the DashBoard Circuits..
(Unified Meter) according to the Service Manager, it controls the RPMS and
transmission, it sound like BS to me. Can anyone with knowledge of this help
me out.They want 600.00 plus labor to replace it... 'm leasing ,
why should I have to pay.
This is the last Nissan that I buy.
Year/Make/Model: 2002 NISSAN ALTIMA SE
Body Style: Sedan 4 DR
Engine Type: 3.5L V6 DOHC MPFI 24V

I wish you the best with that situation.
I have an 05, and I too think it will be the last Nissan I buy unless Nissan SERIOUSLY improves its quality.
I love the styling..but it has some small knick knacks that bother me.

Im experiencing the same problem with my 2002 Altima. Unfortunately, I already have spent $1800 replacing parts and it still is stalling and not starting back up right away. Im curious if you ever recieved an answer what the problem was and how it could be repaired. I would appreciate any information you can relay to me to correct this problem. Thanks Tj
