2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
The 2.5SL was my first "new car" purchase. I love the look of the car and the way it drives, although I should have purchased the 6 cyl. instead of 4. I didn't get the navigation system, but other than that it's fully loaded (bluetooth, leather, 6-cd changer, bose sound system, sunroof, etc). The car has been very reliable for me; no repairs needed other than recalls, BUT there were/are a LOT of recalls. The day after I purchased the car, I found out about a recall and had to go back to the dealership (would have been nice if they told me before I drove off the lot - they could have just kept it for a couple more hours to fix the problem). I plan to keep this car for a while.
Bluetooth, Smart Key, heated seats, very comfortable, good trunk size. Also, as you're approaching the car, if you press and hold the unlock button the windows roll down.
Dings and dents too easily (my old Saturn never had this problem). Too many recalls. Floormats should be sold separately instead of in packs of 4 (One of my floormats is worn and the other three still look brand new. I'm not paying $100+ to replace all four).
