2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
It has been 3 months and 3 thousand miles since my purchase. The car rides smooth and quiet. I test drove a 4 and it had enough power but I was willing to sacrifice some mpg for a very quiet 6. I'm noise sensitive. Getting 24 mpg suburban driving, highway 28-29 with a ton of get up and go! Bose sound system is fabulous with the quiet engine. Interior feels very spacious. Dash not cluttered. Controls nicely positioned. Nice leg space. Trunk offers plenty of suitcase and stuff space. Good sight lines through rear window when backing up. The transmission is very smooth, quiet, and easy to get used to. No need for a stick shift.
Quietness. Spacious interior. Bose stereo. MPG with all that power. HID headlights. Heated seats. Climate control system. No problems requiring a return to the dealer.
Current option packaging is poor. More side support in front seats. Improve sound proofing with the four cylinders. Fog lights not very effective.
