#478 of 3493 Altimas and ABS
Apr 11, 2005 (8:06 pm)
I too have had a hard time trying to find used Altimas (2002-2004) with ABS (carshopn mentioned this as well in his/her Mar 24 post). They don't seem to exist.
Even when trying to "build" a new car online (this site and Nissan's), it seems that package T01 (ABS & Side Airbag Package for $800) is only availble for the Altima 2.5 S and not for the various 3.5's (and I really want a 3.5). The 3.5's offer a package T02 (TCS & Side Airbag Package), but TCS isn't ABS, which is why it has a different name, eh? Does anyone know why this is? It seems that most other sedans in the Altima's class offer ABS stanard or at least as an option...
Many thanks in advance,

I just went to the Nissan web site and built a 3.5SE with the Side Air Bag/TCS pkg. When I clicked on the details of that package it lists ABS as part of it...
• Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
• Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)
• Brake Assist
• Driver and front-passenger side supplemental air bags
• Roof-mounted curtain side supplemental air bags for front- and rear-seat occupants head protection
• Traction Control System (TCS)

ABS is standard on the 3.5SE.

After many test drives and lots of homework, I finally decided on a 2005 Nissan Altima SE V6 silver with black heated seats and Navi. I only test drove the Altima V6 without Navi. Well decision made, but just could not find the car. Exhausting New Jersey dealerships, I finally gave up. I was told that most people who want Navi and a V6, go for the Maxima, but I didn't want to go over $30K and prefered the look of the Altima better. Has anyone else tried to find this car? Any luck?
I know Navi is just a toy, but it is something that I wanted. So my new search begins. Fun to drive, 5 or 6 speed trani, Navi, heated leather seats, in silver! Any ideas? I have drove the Acura TSX w/Navi, Cadillac CTS w/Navi, Mazda 3s w/Navi (no Navi available in the Mazda 6s), Mini Copper S w/Navi and finally the Honda Accord EX V6 w/ what else.... Navi. A friend of mine has a new Toyota Solara SL w/Navi, but really am not fond of the styling, and you can ONLY get the Navigation in the SL not the SE.... and I can't stand fake wood inside a car!!! Anyone have any suggestions on what else to look at? I am leaning towards the Honda. Thanks for any assistance.

I guess you could always have the Navi added by the dealer. Just doing a quick run on the prices though im not sure you are gonna get what you want for under $30k. For an Altima 3.5SE with Auto Tranny, leather package and navigation the price is just over $30.

I'm considering an altima SER ,anybody have prices paid for that?

I am concerned with the SE-R's ground clearance - and wondering what I pay for a new loaded Altima SE-R?

I found your review encouraging and wonder if you can advise me on purchasing a new Altima SE-R? I am concerned about its ground clearance considering I live in Vermont (snow, mud season, etc.) and I'm also clueless about what to expect to pay. Thanks
#487 of 3493 Altima with Manual Transmission and ABS

I'm having the hardest time finding a 2005 Altima with a Manual Transmission and ABS. Do they exist?
The dealer tells me he can't find one or order one from the factory, but I don't anywhere that says the two can't go together. Any thoughts?
