Fun, stylish, but a few issues
By GM on
2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Car looks good and is fun to drive around. Had to get a recall taken care of before first oil change! Manual shifting can be fun. CVT seems smoother after first oil change. CVT seemed to be revving high sometimes. Heater takes too much time to shoot hot air out. Blows cold air and the auto feature stays on lowest fan setting until the heat kicks in. Also it always blows at your feet when on auto and the A/C is always on with auto. There is a leak with back tail light. Nissan ordered the part and it took a while to come in.
Car looks great. Comfortable. Pricing isn't bad. key fob is cool and convenient. downshifting when going downhill is nice. Bose radio is decent. Instrument panel is designed nicely and easy to use.
Steering could be improved. Pulls on slight long turns. CVT trans should be smoother and not rev so high at times. CAr has loud wind noise with windows down. superloud. Water drips into car when windows are down and driving up hill if water on roof. Heater takes too much time to kick in!
