Go With Six Cyl
By 4isnotenuff on
2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I got the SL package on my 2.5S and am only mildly content with the performance vs. options compromise I chose. Having only owned previous 8 cyl. cars (Last was a Continental), the change to 4cyl has been an adjustment to say the least. Ride is great, styling and value are better than Accd/Camry/Mazda6. Power is acceptable; but, wish I got the 6cyl. Still think the mileage for either is great.
Ride & styling! Electronic key. Sounds silly, but I think my rear spoiler sets the car apart...I like that I was able to get one.
Engine noise is excessive. Exterior noise gets bad too. Stock radio is mediocre at best. Better Option/accessory packages on the 4cyl.
