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

Review

Personally think it is one of the most attractive sedans in its price range. Went from a Passat to a Nissan - bad move. The ride is nice but not germanic. The MPG is disappointing (averaging 2.3 mpg less than the DIC). The CVT makes it sound like a go-cart. Should have bought the V6 but didn't want to put in premium fuel - bad move #2. The V6 is too strong not to love. Only a few minor problems but nothing major to report. Highly recommend the V6 since you get cool rims, turn signals in side mirrors and VDC standard. I bought the SL package to get all the tech goodies which I don't regret and Nissan makes deals on their cars. Will trade it probably in two more years.

Favorite Features

Exterior design. SL Package. Keyless Entry/Ignition.

Suggested Improvements

Need some type of side bolsters in front seats. Fix the gopher sound on 4- cyl. Would love to reach the stated MPG. Wish the Hybird was available in more states.
