2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

If you want to pay top dollar for a car that sounds like it is falling apart almost as soon as you drive it off of the lot then, by all means, buy a Nissan Altima. Dealing with Nissan's inept and rude service network is a free bonus. Otherwise you're much better off buying a Honda or a Toyota. The Altima is a really nice car that is hampered by bad engineering and shoddy workmanship. Purchased 7/09 and I've had to take it in for warranty service way too many times for a car that has only 7500 miles. The car's misc. annoying problems are too numerous to list here.

Best Features

Engine. CVT provides excellent low-end torque. Handles great. Sharp styling.

Worst Features

Fix interior squeaks and rattles, improve fit and finish tolerances, introduce some quality control measures...
