2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
This is my first new car purchase. Was gonna get a Subie Legacy but didn't like the way it shifted. Camry is bland, boring, and dealers wouldnt haggle with me. G35x was my dream car that never came true (lotta bread for that car). My friend bought an Altima and I was taken away by the tranny. Felt like a 6 cylinder to me and the smoothness and pickup was impressive.
CVT, keyless feature, storage compartments are huge, dual climate controls, and the wiper blades. Not bad on gas either. Barely hits 2000 rpm at 65 mph. Big gas tank.
Folding mirrors only on the 3.5 blows. I would have designed a better looking rim for the 2.5s. Passenger seat should have been power with the SL package. Wait till a headlight bulbs blows. The manual says "Visit Your Nissan Dealer". Overall I love the Altima.
