During my search for a new car, I had looked at a Nissan Altima once. Before I knew much about what I was driving, I thought it had a six-cylinder engine. It was also a 5-speed which was what I was looking for. There didn't seem to be one in the right price range and I still had a mindset for the Sunfire, so I kept looking. After inquiring about a Sunfire GT I had found a little more than 500 miles away, I decided that I would take another look at an Altima. I was preparing to leave for college in a few weeks and finding a car was imperative. I had found another 5-speed Altima just a couple days earlier and after driving it again, I decided it was the car I wanted.
