Awesome car over all - love it

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


I got the 2.5SL with the nav package. I'm very happy with the car. I love the CVT - very responsive and smoother than the 07 loaner the dealer gave me while waiting for my car. Car is fun to drive, and has a surprising amount of power for a 4 cyl - made me forget about not being able to get the V6. I average about 27-29 mpg in suburban traffic. It stinks that stability and traction control are only available in the V6 cyl. My other big gripe is the radio that comes with the nav package. Could be MUCH better. Sounds good though Overall, this is the best car I've bought to date. I enjoy driving it and it has a smooth and quiet ride. Engine can be a little noisy when revved though.

Favorite Features

CVT - awesome transmission period - smooth and powerful Engine - good mix of power and efficiency Body - sporty look with the spoiler GPS - does a good job overall but comes up with crazy routings sometimes Ride - smooth and quiet

Suggested Improvements

Bluetooth with nav has issues with Windows Mobile phones - beware this one really is a pain Poor voice recognition - often have to repeat commands multiple times. Nav radio - No artist alert on XM, and no way to change to Sirius. Can't skip/reverse in a song. MP3s must be tagged or can't see title
