2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I made the mistake of purchasing another Altima. I bought the 2.5 with SL Package Feb 08, and although the leather interior is one of the most comfortable I've ever owned, the other problems have made me regret my decision. I've had it serviced at the dealership for creaking and rattling noises in the driver's door at least 3 times. The 1st time, the service manager said that a squeak/rattle kit would fix the problem. It fixed 75% of the noises, but in 2 weeks, they had all returned. The next few times, the technician couldn't reproduce the problem therefore couldn't fix the problem. The driver's seat moves side to side even after the dealership "fixed" it too. I can't recommend this car!
Heated leather seats, moonroof, styling and interior roominess.
Improve the fit and finish, fix the annoying driver's (power) seat rocking motion, use better tires and insulation to reduce road noise, install better brakes, and figure out better, less-expensive options groupings.
