31,000 miles later....
By Moneyman on
2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
So any review after a few weeks is worthless. Finally 31k later, here we go...Overall I really like this car. I've been averaging 29.8mpg in the winter (letting it run a little too). That's most impressive. CVT is pretty fun to drive. I've had a torque bolt tightened, I believe?, and the seat had a little wobble/click to it. Both fixed. There is the "popping noise that I hear at lights/after you shut it off. I will be asking about that next oil change, doesn't seem to effect anything. Overall a great car so far for mileage and comfort (I'm 6'1" 220) just don't put your kids in the back too! I'm not sure if its the tires, but they stink in the winter! My wife takes my truck! Would buy another
MPG! CVT, dual digital display for heat/ac temp. Leather/heated seats. Tire tread still good at 31k. Did I say MPG? Feels so "peppy" when I drive it.
Better tires/traction in the snow! Rain is fine, but snow is bad! My wife takes my truck all winter! Though I like the Altima overall, the snow/ice driving is below average. Otherwise so far so good. I wish it had a plug for IPOD, and not the lame AUX jack either!
