2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
The Altima's suspension is superior to the 3-series. It handle Manhattan and Jersey pot holes as if they don't exist. The steering is tight and responsive. Got a sick deal too. Fully-loaded (without nav) for $1,500 below invoice and got them to throw in fog lights.
Bose system is fierce, convenience package, climate control.
In the city, you absolutely need folding mirrors. It's a great disappointment that I was unable to have them on the 2.5SL. Also, heated mirrors are essential for the winter. Also, the leather should have been fully covered under each headrest -- it looks cheap when they're raised and u see cloth.
