2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Bought this vehicle about 6 mos ago. Drive is smooth and has Great pick up speed! The comfort is great as well as the gas mileage. Just a great car for the price. However, there seems to be a knocking noise every time I start the car and take off--took it in and they say it is the brakes and or airbags. Hmmm is pretty loud, sounds like something is stuck. There sometimes is a noise coming from the back, not sure what it is. Over all the car is a good car. No other problems.


Best Features

The exterior, acceleration


Worst Features

Less noises, sounds like things are loose.

2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Driven 2600 miles so far. Car is very fun to drive (I have the 6M). Is getting 31-32mpg, I drive 70/30 hwy/ cty. Love the styling, front seats are comfortable. Not sure about the passenger comfort, no one has complained. Car is very steady at 75MPH. Great family car that I don't mind driving around by myself. Stereo is ok, nothing special. Great value for the money.


Best Features

Push to start ignition. The way the key fob works. Fuel economy. Styling. Comfort. Value.


Worst Features

Don't like the suitcase-crushers in the trunk. Ford Fusion has the better design here. Throws on the stick shift are a little long, could be improved.

Review

This new Altima is a very nice car. I sold a '96 that just wore out after 215000 miles. I always buy Nissan, as they are $2 to 5k cheaper than Toyota and the fit, finish and quality are comparable. I love this car and it is fun to drive. Love the Keyless entry and push button starter. Trunk is very nice. All around, I think this car, in Dark slate and charcoal interior looks very classy, and can compete with next model up lines.


Best Features

The interior and exterior are beautiful. I look at those that bought entry-level BMW's for $35k and think this car is every bit as good, for $17k. Like the Aux input for the MP3 players. Good sounding audio system. CVT transmission is really fun to drive. Manual for fun, Auto for cruising. Buy.


Worst Features

Brakes are a bit funny feeling, they do require some distance for 4 wheel discs. Maybe some bigger rotors?. They need a slight improvement. The steering is a bit soft, but good.

Review

well let me start by writing I sold my 2008 Toyota Avalon touring pkg for this car. this is one comfertable, fun to drive, well equiped, FUEL EFFCIENT, FAST.....etc and the list goes on and on and on... i've owened this car from march/2009 and until today i still look forward driving it. the CVT trany it is the best invention yet that nissan used in their cars. if you ask me about pros and cons all I can say is PROs... PROs. i was a toyota guy for the past 10 years. I tried hondas and more toyotas but didn't like them. i'm so glad/happy that i bought a nissan it is well build inside and outside.the only think that I had to get used to "WHICH IS NOT A BAD THINK" is CVT trany.


Best Features

CVT, style inside and outside, quite, roomy, well build and put together and don't let me forget the PUSH BOTTON i haven't took my keyes out of my pocket to open or start the car. and the list goes on and on...


Worst Features

NONE..... NONE..... NONE.....

Review

I was out looking for a new family car after selling my sports car from my little girl being born. I looked at several other brands but also at the Sentra. I found the Altima to be big enough on the inside for the large rear facing car seat we had trouble fitting in other vehicles. The steering response on the vehicle is great, I get an average of combined 26 mpg. The car feels peppy for the 4cyl and the CVT is very smooth. Interior materials seem of good quality and buttons and knobs are conveniently placed. Standard all disc brakes and ABS is a nice feature and the safety features cant be beat. Great 5 star safety ratings. Its the highest in its class. I also really like the exterior looks.


Best Features

CVT, Intelli Key, ABS, disc brakes, interior space, trunk space, exterior design


Worst Features

Standard High Intensity Discharge Lights (or at least available for 4cyl models), Stability Control
