2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

I've test driven almost any mid-size family sedan on the market and that's what I can say about Nissan Altima. Compared with others in its class, Nissan is noisy. Its engines (both 2.5 and 3.5L) produce, on average, 10-15HP more than the competition but at what cost!!! Engine noise beyond 2000RPM is excessive! At par with Suzuki I've driven the other day (yes, it's that bad)!!! On the positive side, the exterior and interior design is fantastic. No nonsense or extra not needed buttons. Everything is ergonomically laid out and easy to use. CVT is the biggest and unique feature about this car though (surprisingly) it's not as smooth as it seems. You just touch the gas slightly and it jolts.

Favorite Features

Interior design, ergonomical button layout.

Suggested Improvements

Engine noise is intrusive in the cabin beyond 2000RPM.
