I traded a 2006 Honda Civic LX 4dr for the Altima Hybrid. The Civic got great MPG and drove well but the seat was just too uncomfortable. I wanted a 4 door with some comfort and about 35 MPG, When you look around there are not that many comfortable cars that get 35+. I hope that changes in the future. But for now the Altima Hybrid fits the bill. The car drives great, it is hard to keep out of the gas, the CVT and engine make this car feel like a V6, but if you drive it like that the mileage suffers. If you drive a little more reserved the car rewards with great mileage. The drivers seat is comfortable so far with 11,000 miles on it.
Traction Control, huge glove box, tilt and telescope wheel, sporty style, dual zone climate control
The instrument panel needs a redesign, too many confusing idiot lights. When you get in the cold car there is a blue light on the top of the gauge, it makes me think the high beams are on. There are too many idiot lights and not enough gauges. Add a tachometer, temp gauge and oil pressure.
