2007 Nissan Altima



  • carnut21carnut21 Posts: 38
    The 06 was a nice car but the 07 is much better. Nissan keeps building quality and value into their cars. The cabin is quiter and the engine is more efficient than its predessor. The CVT is nice (i have a 07 Murano) but also have a 6speed 05 Frontier. Both of these vehicles have been problem free and suspect the Altima would be the same. The V6 in the Altima is really nice.

    I picked up my '07 altima about a week ago. I got the S model but with out navigation. I'm thinking about putting in Sirius..( i have an account from my last car ).. Does any one kno if the the stereo supports satellite? i kno i have to run a line in from an Antenna but I'm not sure if the radio can support it.....

    I have the brochure in my office and it does not come standard. It needs to be part of the connection package which starts with the Bose system. I think if you have that upgrade package your good to go. The standard system is not compatible with satellite radio. Enjoy your new car!

    I picked up my '07 3.5Sl on 6/8 and the drive home was fantastic. I traded my '05 3.5Sl which I loved, but what a difference in the ride, comfort and richness of the interior. The CVT was smooth and responsive, and the Boze is amazing. The exterior in winter frost is beautiful and rich looking, along with the style of the car. The gauges are well placed and the itelligent key is a blast along with the push button start. The only complaint which is no big deal is I don't care for the foot parking brake. Gas mileage seems pretty good about the same as the '05. Great job Nissan.

    I'm trying to determine which color Altima to get. I have a silver Grand Prix right now and love how easy it is to keep it clean looking. I keep it garage kept most of the time, so if it doesn't rain, I can go several weeks without the dust showing too much.

    For those who have the dark smoky gray Slate color, how easy is it to keep it clean looking? I used to own a black car and it was somewhat difficult to keep clean looking, but I'm wondering how the Slate color compares to black as far as ease of maintenance.

    Nothing is worse that black. Period. Or even as bad, for hat matter. Other dark colours will definitely show up dirt and especially dust more quickly than your silver, but not as bad as black. I got the silver for the very reasons you mentioned - looks good for a loooong time between washes.

    The tough thing about colour choice on the Altima is that it looks good in every colour. No regrets over my choice, though.

    I sold a black car and bought the Altima in Dark Slate. It does hide dirt a bit better than black, but if you care that much about how clean it looks, just buy that Pebble Beach color.

    I have the 3.5SE in Dark Slate with spoiler. It is rich and classy looking. I also darkened the windows which really adds a lot to the character of the car. Also I was given a car duster to wipe it clean when it just has dust and not dirt. In about 1 minute it looks great again!!! Enjoy the new ride.

    I heard that 2008 altima would be on market around late Sept. or early Oct. So, do you think the price of 2007 altima will come down alot at that time? Anybody knows if 06 altima lower down its price when 07 version comes out? Thx!!
  • jd10013jd10013 Posts: 779
    I wouldn't expect the price on the 2007's to drop much, if at all untill after jan. yea, the 06 did drop when the 07 came out, but thats because the car was redesigned for the 2007 model year, and was much improved over 2006. If they hadn't dropped the price on the 06, nobody would have bought one over a 2007, especially considering the price only went up 200 dollars or so. But the 08 will be exactly the same as the 07, with the possible excption of being offered in more colors.
  • rps1rps1 Posts: 13
    The only color that I liked at all was the Winter Frost which I have for over a month, and I find that it doesn't show the dirt and is very easy to keep clean. It also looks sporty and rich, and I don't see myself coming and going.It seems that everybody has silver,shades of grey and champagne. I am very happy with the Winter Frost w/charcoal leather interior.

  • I want to research the 2007 Altima but I can't seem to get onto I didn't know if it was just me or if other people were having the same problem.
  • jd10013jd10013 Posts: 779
    I don't have any problem, thats using IE 7, and a broadband connection. there's a lot of flash content and stuff there, takes me awhile to load it. If your on dial up, that would probably be the problem.
  • Well, I downloaded and tried IE7 and Firefox but still could not access I have DSL so I don't think speed is the issue but it does seem it is timing out on me. What comes up is "this page cannot be displayed". Very strange. I can access pretty much any other car site and I can get on many Nissan dealership sites but the NIssan corporate site is eluding me.

    Hi, All

    A question to regulars here on the forum. What's your overall impression on reliability of new Altimas? How would they stack up againt camcords?

    I am in particular interested in 3.5S

    How's the fit and finish? Any interior rattles/noices?

    Looks like there's a 1% financing available in Canada...makes me think maybe i should get rid of mu 05 malibu....
  • rps1rps1 Posts: 13
    Hi yury, I have the 07 3.5SL, and the fit is tight and the finish is exceptional. No noise or squeaks. No interior rattles or noises. My overall impression is great, but the car is new so only time will tell. I have no complaints at all..
  • jd10013jd10013 Posts: 779
    Yea, they're so new, its hard to say about reliability. but your 100% right about the fit and finish. nissan took a really, really big step forward in that department with this redesign. The quality increase on the inside is deffinitly the single biggest improvement over the 06 model.
  • jaeger1jaeger1 Posts: 43
    '07 3.5 SE 6MT - 3 months, and apart from som e fiddly cargo net clips, ZERO problems, ZERO rattles, TONS of grins.

  • yuryyury Posts: 146

    just wondering, how long did you guys had your altimas?
  • jd10013jd10013 Posts: 779
    I bought mine in early feb 07. its been perfect. but, it is only 5 1/2 months old. Every car I've owned has had at least 1 or two thing I din'd like, but not this one. I can honestly say there isn't a single thing about it that I find myself wishing nissan had done differently. like I was saying before, its much nicer than anything before it. I've been buying nissan vehicles since '92, and the improvement in quality is tremendous.
  • yuryyury Posts: 146
    So, I got to test drive an 07 3.5S, majectic blue with black interior. Here's my impressions.
    First thing, I currently own a 05 malibu (3.5 V6, 200 hp), so that was the point of reference.


    1. The interior. Black interior looks way nicer than the grey one that was in the other Altima dealer drove me in to the storage.
    It has a mix of nice cloth and a suede like sufraces.
    2. The size. It does feel a bit smaller that the malibu. Probably mostly because it has less headroom and I probably pumped up the vertical adjustment lever too much. The back seat is a bit smaller too and there's less legroom at the back. But it is still adequate unless someone really tall rides at the back.
    3. Driving stuff. To me it felt liek a sports car actually. Handling is tight, power is high. I was spinning the wheels while trying to GENTLY pull out of the parking lot. The brakes are little strange, kinda soft, but after some getting used to it may actually work out ok. Steering wheel is small, but comfortable. They say it's light at low speeds, but i don't think it's lighter the malibus', maybe even stiffer. But comfy and positioned well.

    The tranny feels actually not much different from a regular auto. Well, no shift shock of course, but for me it not that big a deal. Can live with the shock, can live without it.
    The car picks up really good with a minimum pedal input, it even is a bit too jumpy...when you push it in at higher speeds there's a bit of disappointment since you don't get the same initial jump. But that's all in the head, cause the car still accelerates pretty quick.

    Downshifts with the 6 point manual mode....Will take getting used to. It's all smooth, there's no instant revving up so I even wondered did it do anything at all?? But of course it did and part of the blame here is that it's 6 points, so your rev increment is pretty small.
    The suspension is on the hard side, but comfy, has kinda rubbery feel. Doesn't shake the bejesus out you, but definitely you feel the road.


    1. Aux input didn't work when I plugged my MP3 phone in. I gave me about a second of sound and then it kept saying "no aux input" amd switching to the radio.
    2. Steering wheel vibrated in the highway. But that maybe due to unbalanced tires, etc. no stability issues however.
    3. there was a distinct rattle in the speaker area somewhere, only present when the radio was on. With the radio off it was ok.

    Comments, anyone? i am especially interested in the comments in the problems section, am i looking at something that may end being prblematic or maybe there's a good fix that thay can do...
  • vikariousvikarious Posts: 15
    The only problem I've had with my car so far is the latch on the armrest doesn't want to stay latched. I'll be driving along and all of a sudden the armrest will be up and the compartment open.

    I have a feeling it'll be one of those things they "can't replicate" at the dealership and I'll have to live with. I haven't taken it in yet but hope to soon.

    I seriously LOVE this car.
  • yuryyury Posts: 146
    one more thing....on the way back from the dealer in my malibu i felt like i was driving a fridge :)

    btw, guys, anyone knows what's the diagonal size of the trunk? It would be kinda nice if I could fit my 170 cm skis there witout having to fold the seat.
  • jd10013jd10013 Posts: 779
    1. the axu, might jut be the phone. I'd try it with another device (ipod for example) to see if its the radio, or the phone. not saying the phone is broke, just may be a compatibility issue

    2. the steering wheel should not vibrate. If thats the car your going to purchase, demand it be taken care of. My car runs smooth as glass at any speed, well, haven't exceeded 80mph yet.

    3. sounds like something is loose, the vibration from the sound comming out of the speaker is whats making something ratttle. again, demand that it is fixed to your satisfaction.
