2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Purchased in June. Great looking car. Plenty of power. Handles well but the ride is too soft, a bit mushy for me. Car feels as if it's floating at certain speeds, mainly under 40 mph. Brakes a bit touchy but seem powerful. Visibility is very good except for backing up. Big blind spot. Need to be very good at using mirrors. Great looking color in the Azure Blue, but very, very hard to keep clean. Curious to see how it handles the snow, I live in the northeast. MPG is OK.
Comfort, CVT, one touch up and down windows, intelligent key and push button start.
Firm up suspension. Make traction control standard. Have side mirrors retractable. Why have it on the 3.5 and not on the 2.5 really seems foolish. But many manufactures do this. Just can't understand this idea. Add some sound to the car, acceleration is boring.
