Review

I bought my hybrid in June of 2009 and as you can see by my mileage, practically live in it.
It is a die hard.
I have put on 2 sets of tires, but only one set of brakes and as of six weeks ago I'm no where near having to replace what the brakes.
I drive in the mountains and on highways, so this car has seen just about everything.

The only negative is the gas mileage. The
difference between a regular Altima and what I had to pay for the hybrid will never be realized.
In addition, oil changes and maintenance are a lot more.
Would I buy another hybrid?
Probably not.
Would I buy another Altima?
Yes.


Worst Features

I wish there was more trunk space!!

Review

It's a good car, with excellent MPG - I can get 37/g except in winter.

How ever there are some issues. Internal design looks cheap, the Panic button is annoying (it's so easy for the horn to shout out). And just got an issue with the ignition switch: I could not start engine some times, and I was told I need $600.0 to get it fixed by the dealer!


Best Features

MPG, even though it's not so good compared with the best MPG in the market.


Worst Features

Improve the internal design. Make the Panic button smaller?

Review

We have had our 2009 NAH since June 2009.
The on-board computer for mileage runs high, as many have noted.
I just completed tallying my mileage after recording miles and gallons at each fill-up.
After 24,000 miles, I have averaged 34.74 mpg, through all seasons, right in line with EPA estimates.
With gas here at $4.20/gallon, I'm feeling fine.
Overall, it runs like any gas-powered car.
The shift from gas to electric is very mild and not an issue.
The rest of the car is quite fine: good comfort, good power, good feeling of safety.
Yes, the trunk is a bit small but that's the price for a hybrid.
And I LOVE the fact that it goes into electric at the VERY long stoplights where I live.


Best Features

Bluetooth, XM radio, good feel for the road, good power, heated seats.


Worst Features

Back-up camera without buying navigation system.
