2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
Bought coupe in August; have now had it 4 months. Ordered it in early Aug. & waited 7 weeks to take delivery. Unfortunately, it seems in their haste to meet early demand, production lines may not have been as fine-tuned as they should have been. In addition to various rattles & exterior seams that do not line up well, including the hood & trunk, I've already replaced the oil pan after an oil leak at the 3-month mark. As of the 4-mo mark, only 1300 miles on the car. Positives: beautiful interior, including intuitive instrument cluster, radio, climate control and comfortable seats; 6 airbags std; decent value for the $. Negatives: worse-than-anticipated fuel economy, big blind spot, tiny trunk.
Favorite Features
Attractive exterior and interior styling. Base-model interior is tasteful, well-appointed, and comfortable. Intuitive gauges and controls. Ample interior storage. Great pickup for a 4-cyl engine, both off the line and in passing at hwy speeds. 6 airbags standard. 20-gallon fuel tank!
Suggested Improvements
Greater care in assembly! Improved fuel economy. Automatic door-locking when moved 10-ft away from vehicle. Reduced blind spot. Improved headlights. Traction control std. Increased trunk space! Larger back seat. Better warranty. Option to buy sunroof without package.
