#10 of 30 Thinking about buying a 2005 altima
Jul 11, 2006 (11:49 am)
I just heard about the recall on the 2006 Altimas and I've been considering buying an Altima for a few months. If I were to buy a 2005 do you think I run the risk of having some of the same problems? I love the styling of the newer model Altimas. I have a 98 that we love-it hasn't given us any problems and has 165,000 miles on it. But I would consider changing my mind if I could find something just as sporty as the Altima without the worries. Anyone have any ideas? I've been doing lots of research and now I feel like I have to start over.

What recall are you referring to? I have an 2006 Altima and is the best car yet.

Ditto. My 2006 3.5 SL has been excellent. There are no recalls on the V6.
#13 of 30 Considering a 2006 Altima

Found a 2006 2.5S with 10,000 miles, standard equip. -- AC, cruise, power windows, locks, etc. Ran a carfax and found it was manufactured in Dec.'05, before the problems with the engines, also one owner. Believe dealer will let it go for approx. $15.5K (not out the door). Will try to negotiate further, but appears to be a good deal. Any thoughts?

I am planning to buy Nissan Altima SL 2003, milage 70000. But one mechanic has told me that it often has motor problems and it starts taking oil. Can it be true?
Thank you for reply.

I would not get a 2002 altima; it was the first model year for that body style and that year there was a lot of recalls and problems, like most first model years where they work the kinks out; just check out consumer reports magazine or online for the reliability history for the altima, which goes all the way back to 99
in 2002, there was several worse then average and much worse than average in a couple of areas, one being major engine problems; the ratings didn't get better, according to consumer reports until the 2005 model year and it wasn't till 2005 that they had better than avg overall reliability for the altima
now you have to take everything I say with a grain of salt; consumer reports is only an avg of what the majority of 2002 altima owners experienced; you might be a lucky one and have no problems!
#17 of 30 Saw a 1998 nissan altima GXE 2.4 L
Dec 21, 2009 (9:54 pm)
I saw this Nissan Altima that I like around 3000 $.It is saying that is 31+mpg on the highway and 20+mpg on city.
I was planning to buy this with the small budget I have.I will be using it to commute to around 60 mi of highway.
Is this a good deal.Does it really have still this good fuel consumption as what they are saying?
Any comments or recommendation.

What ever you do do not buy a 2003 Nissan Altima. There is a class action lawsuit that is starting in regards to extreme oil consumption that leads to catalytic converter damage then engine damage. Here is the link to sign up http://www.fazmiclaw.com/nissanoil/
#19 of 30 looking to buy 2005/2006 nissan altima
Apr 08, 2010 (9:13 am)
looking to buy a used altima in the next 6 weeks... not rushing......I noticed that that cars I am interested in are priced in the same range.. between 8900.00 and 11000.00... I am looking at cars with 65000 to 95000 miles on them. I have seen a few cars that were on the lots for more than 9 days... I am bringing the family mechanic with me to make my purchase.. what would be the likely hood of a dealership accepting say a cash deal of 7000.00 on a 9500.00 asking price. I bought a brand new hyundai sonata in 2000.00 for 4000.00 below the asking price with cash
