#45 of 84 Good Deal or Not
Nov 13, 2003 (11:49 am)
I recently bought a 3.5SE altima with leather package and abs traction with front and rear airbags. Paid $26,100 invoice was $28,383. Was this a good deal or did I overpay
#46 of 84 Fuel Pump Assembly...
Nov 17, 2003 (12:11 pm)
I had the same problem, my gas gauge read empty but I know I had more than 1/2 tank. After a few minutes the "check engine soon" light came on. I had to bring back to dealer diagnosed it with fuel pump assembly failure. My care is 2003 3.5 SE with 1200 miles (bought in September.)

I have a 99 GXE with no problems at all. Only thing I ever done was maintenance items! What a blessing.

I am considering buying a new 3.5 SE. What is your opinion on the traction control system - nice to have, essential, waste of money? Can it be manually disabled?
Thanks in advance for your response!

Any car with that much power going through the front wheels needs traction control.

I am getting use to this site - And my new Altima 2.5s. As a 2002 Xterra owner I wondered what the Altima's RPM should be at 60 mph - about 3500? 70 - about 4,000, the acceleration is very good on the 2.5S. More comfortable than my 2001 Forester.
My test drive was limited - to about 60 mph
My wife's Xterra drops to about 2,500 - both automatic - figure it has over drive

I have had my early 05 since March (almost a year, DARN) and it has been a pretty good car. I got the 2.5S with Conv. Plus pkg.
If I could do it again, I'd get the SE with Sport Plus Pkg. or perhaps the Leather Sport Pkg.
But I LOVE the styling....

Got the answer - shifter gate - push to right at 3D to goto D - drove for two weeks in 3D

make sure the transmission is in drive and not L3. I drove mine in the higher automatic gears and the only way I had rpms that high was in L3. Normally I don't hit anywhere near 3000 rpm until the car is a little above 75mph. Mine is a 2002 altima automatic, soon to be replaced by a new SE.
