2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Just bought a used 08 Altima SL with 10K miles. I like the sportiness of the car and the interior. Averaging 25.1 overall mileage (per the trip computer) and drive primarily in the city. Only issue I am having is a slight "lifter" noise which I have researched and they say it is a "timing chain tensioner" issue. Will take it in a week or so for the dealer to look at it. If I didn't have this issue, I would rate it a 9.
Navigation, BOSE stereo, handling, interior and exterior styling, quiet car. Gets up and goes quicker than my 97 Maxima off the line.
Cup holders won't even hold a regular ceramic cup of coffee! Engine is a bit noisy. I know it is a 4 banger, but I drove other 4 cylinder cars that quieter. Need better job with sound deadening in the engine and firewall compartment areas.
