Altima Hybrid
By joha on
Vehicle
2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
The Altima Hybrid is a very good car. In my first 600 miles of mixed freeway and local driving, I got 34.1 mpg. This is less than I hoped, but much better than non-hybrid cars of similar size and performance. There are a few problems. The gas engine is rough and the ecu has the engine running too much in local driving. The placement of the big battery creates a small trunk that is tall but short front to back. Long items cannot be carried. I have the base model with strange and limited instruments. The speedometer goes to 160 mph, so only the first half is usable, with hard to read gradations. There is no tachometer and no temp guage.
Favorite Features
Appearance, fit and finish, handling, performance, and economy.
Suggested Improvements
Better gauges in base model. Redesign trunk to allow long items. Reduce badges and chrome on trunk. Nissan web site promises power seat on all models, but my car came without. Revise ecu to allow more battery operation in local driving.
