Pros:

Power, acceleration, speed, features

Cons:

I often find myself at odds with the computer controlling the car. It plays a little too conservatively for my liking, but that's a minor complaint.

Review:

Bought my SE-R in December '04, and I'm really enjoying it. Lots of power, great acceleration, and it's a nice looking car too. One downside is it's pretty quick to the red line in 1st gear, and once you touch the line the gas cuts off. Gotta be quick to shift on jackrabbit starts; there's no pushing it into the red on this car. 260 horsepower makes driving fun, especially if you're sitting next to a kid in his Civic with the coffee can tail pipe. While he's making noise, you're making time. The SE-R stock pipes do sound pretty nice though. Throaty without having that high-pitched chainsaw sound that the teens seems to think is so cool. *I* don't want to drive a car that sounds like a Stihl. As far as features, the SE-R is loaded. I passed on the traction control, didn't like how it just cut off the gas when the tires spin. I can do that myself, thank you. Anyway, so far, no complaints with the car. The price was a little high compared to the other Altima models, but having the SE-R badge on the back makes the cost a little less painful. :)

Pros:

Sporty appearance, 18" wheels, fully equipped interior, good sound system and great sounding exhaust.

Cons:

A little wild under hard acceleration.

Review:

This is an all-round excellent sports sedan. I have owned several Nissan cars (even a Pathfinder) and this one is by far the best. I compared it to the Maxima and it's a great value. It's fully equipped with a smooth 6 speed MT, electric sunroof...all the works. The ride is a bit stiff but that's what you want in this type of car. If this were a rear RWD or an AWD car, it would be even better. Can't wait to put the summer tires back on!

Pros:

I love the looks and all the shapes in the body.

Cons:

The tires (18" Summer) could of been replaced with a all seasonal tire. I had to replace them the first week that I had the car. They wouldn't go in just a small amount of snow.

Review:

This is my first Nissan, and I love it. The power is good, the looks are great. It is fun and comfortable to drive. You can see out the back easily to change lanes. I've had several new cars in the last few years, and this has to be my favorite.
