Quite Slow for a nissan
By Mike on

Vehicle

2007 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I just test drove this car. I'd have to say I am very disappointed that it is so slow for a Nissan. Previous years were quite fast. The CVT allows for a very enjoyable ride but does not allow for the quick start from 0. However, once going 30+ it has plenty of power. Starting from 0 is like starting a car with a big engine in 2nd gear. If you have no reason to lay into the gas this is the car for you. It's smooth, no shifting, and the CVT gives for a ride passengers would enjoy. I've got very mixed impressions - It's got Toyota Camry beat with everything except for the 0- 60 factor, or so it would seem.

Favorite Features

Except for the slow factor, I'd have to say the CVT is my favorite. Going up a hill is a blast - seeing the revs go up and stay in the 6-8000 rpm's till you lay off the gas is insane. It's quiet, no jerks, and a very different experience.

Suggested Improvements

Nissan ought to improve the 0-30 range - something doesn't seem right considering the high HP rating.
