Fantastic Travel Car

2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
We wanted a vehicle which offered comfort first and economy second for our retirement travels. Our 2009 Altima has exceeded expectations. It is as comfortable on the open road as our 2003 Tahoe and gets 32 mpg at and 5 mph above speed limits with AC on. Also pleasantly surprised with 29 mph around town. Has sufficient power to climb I70 from Denver into the Rockies with ease. Bought the Altima after extensive comparisons to the Camry, Accord and Hyundai Sonata. Altima won for riding comfort and power in the 4- cylinder group. Cannot be more pleased with our selection and would recommend this car to anyone.
Style, riding comfort, economy. Get the sunroof - it makes a big difference.
Can't find anything yet after 4 months and 7500 miles. Power is just enough. Might want to test drive the 6- cylinder.
