2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Have had my Altima Hybrid for 10 months and really enjoy driving it. It's got great pick-up, feels like it was made to suit me physically, and looks great. The fuel economy is sub-par -- averaging 30mpg mostly in city driving, which means I'm paying a lot for a hybrid that isn't performing as expected. I initially had to have the 12v battery replaced, then the headliner. Now there's an issue with the engine control module and the NAV system (which I don't find particularly intuitive). Despite all this, really enjoy driving it and despite the smaller cargo capacity, it can hold pretty much whatever I need it to and seats three kids well in the back. Still a great combo of practicality and fun

Best Features

Keyless, push-button start!! Steering-wheel audio and Bluetooth contorls, one-touch driver and passenger windows, automatic headlights, acceleration, interior and exterior styling.

Worst Features

All-black interior makes it really hard to see things at night. NAV/entertainment system could be better. Lousy fuel economy (for the hybrid premium).
