Total miles: 4,030. Avg mpg: 32.38. Total miles will easily double/triple in 2009. I came out of a 1999 V6 Toyota Camry. The Altima is nice but the Camry tracked and drove smoother. The power just flowed effortlessly and I could get up to 30 mpg hwy and 18-20 city. The 'premium' I paid for the Altima Hybrid has yet to be of benefit so think through your driving style and driving demands. I also considered the Ford Escape Hybrid for the huge advantage of cargo space and functionality. I decided ultimately on the better gas mileage Altima (by 3 - 5 mpg) was worth more since gas was over $4/gal at the time and there was talk of going to $5/gal. The $2350 tax credit helped the decision too.
Total interior roominess, ergonomics, leather seats are very comfortable, interior textures and design is well thought out. Looks inside and out are great . Bluetooth quality is good sending & receiving calls.
Nav system is cryptic and frustrating. Can't find some streets at all. Sounds system is just OK - disappointing for a Bose. EV mode doesn't kick in for stop/go (0-5 mph)a lot of times? No fold down rear seat due to batteries. Also forgot about effects of EMI. Can't upload my phonebook into system.
