I've owned a '98, '04, and now the '09. Every Altima has been an improvement over its former self, however, this Altima is surpassing every expectation that I had for it. The CVT is smooth and keeps the car in a superb power range, yet maximizing the fuel economy. The noise outside of the cabin is greatly reduced from the prior models and everything is just perfectly improved. Nissan has certainly pulled themselves into an area that is capable of competing with European and American Luxury brands. Think about it...do you want Luxury that'll cost you as much as a house, or car that is almost just as good for a supremely phenomenal deal!!!
Smart Key System, Push-Button Start, CVT-Performance, and the remarkably smooth ride.
