2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I bought my 2009 Nissan Altima new. I was looking for a new car and went to a local car show, where they had many cars of the type I was looking for (sedans). Im 65 tall, my first concern was whether I fit or not. Either not enough head room or not enough leg room eliminated 90% of the cars. Price range, basic features, comfort narrowed it down to this car. I chose the bigger engine for more control and better handling. I have almost 60,000 miles on it now and I still love the car. I did have a problem with the front windshield cracking within the first month; they replaced it without any problem. This car has been well worth my investment.
Im getting 20.5 miles per gallon (80% local, 20% highway), actually calculated from the first fill up I got.
Head & leg room is great.
I don't like the look of the new 2015 models as much as my (and similar) year.
