Dealer Employee Review
By Johnny967 on
2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I've been a Nissan dealership employee since 1992. My last car was an 03 Altima and I was happy with it... until I saw a white 07 in our showroom. I took one for a spin around the block and I knew right then I was going to own one. As the one responsible for processing warranty claims, I look at cars from a different perspective - not from what I like, but what can easily go wrong and how much it will cost to maintain. I can honestly tell you, Nissan put a lot of time and effort into this one to get it right. This one is a winner! It's hard to believe the Maxima is the flagship of the Nissan line when they released this beauty. Maxima will be redesigned for 08 but this is top for me!
I purchased mine with the SL package so I have Bose, XM, Navigation, etc. I love the CVT over a transmission and it makes a 4cyl feel like a 6cyl when driving. Unless you're a speed demon, you do not need a 6cyl. There is sufficient passing power in a 4 on the highway.
The car could use some sound-proofing improvements. Other than that, kudos to Nissan for a reasonably priced car with Infiniti qualities! As for Nissan, have parts available at the same time you release a new vehicle! Floor mats were missing in mine & they are on backorder! Why???????
