2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Overall so far My Altima has been a great car and a great value, 2 years old and i still get compliments on it daily, the car is great in the city and smooth on the highway. but by no means is it a performance car its not too much that i dont like about it, but the 2.5 engine is loud during acceleration, and at high speeds(80+) the car feel like it is easily swayed by the wind. and in the summer the leather is unusually hot, it seems to hold the heat in even after the a/c has been blasting for a while, and some of the interior fittings feel cheap, but none of these are nothing you cant live with, and it would not change my mind from having to make the purchase all over again.

Best Features

ikey keyless entry and start, once u have this feature you'll never be able to live with out it, premium car features without the price. Fuel economy is good, even tho i barely ever hit what was quoted on the window sticker. dual exhaust

Worst Features

the loud 2.5engine is very annoying, the CVT may be good for smooth shifting and fuel economy, but a kills the fun to drive factor, they should offer ventilated seats because the leather is hot! offer a remote start. and automatic window roll up option on the ikey
