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

Review

I traded in my 4Runner thinking that I would get better fuel efficiency based on the advertised 23/31 mpg. It's giving a dismal 18 mpg in the city and a pathetic 20.5 mpg combined. And yes it is the 4 cylinder 2.5S. My 4Runner was giving me just a mile or two less with a 6 cylinder engine! Besides the poor fuel efficiency it's a decent car but if you are looking for better mileage, look elsewhere. My last Nissan purchase!

Best Features

Good styling, decent handling. Would have been nice to put tinted windows and climate control.

Worst Features

Nissan needs to learn about truth in advertising. Advertise 23 mpg and delivering 18 mpg is simply criminal. Learn how to develop a more fuel efficient engine.

Dear Sorrybuyer, The "Fuel Economy Ratings" are from the gov't. They can change based on vehicle CARE, and the Operator's Driving habbits. I suggest you do some research before you complain.
