This new Altima is a very nice car. I sold a '96 that just wore out after 215000 miles. I always buy Nissan, as they are $2 to 5k cheaper than Toyota and the fit, finish and quality are comparable. I love this car and it is fun to drive. Love the Keyless entry and push button starter. Trunk is very nice. All around, I think this car, in Dark slate and charcoal interior looks very classy, and can compete with next model up lines.
The interior and exterior are beautiful. I look at those that bought entry-level BMW's for $35k and think this car is every bit as good, for $17k. Like the Aux input for the MP3 players. Good sounding audio system. CVT transmission is really fun to drive. Manual for fun, Auto for cruising. Buy.
Brakes are a bit funny feeling, they do require some distance for 4 wheel discs. Maybe some bigger rotors?. They need a slight improvement. The steering is a bit soft, but good.
