2009 Altima Hybrid--disappointed
By msginny on

Vehicle

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

Review

I really wanted to like this car. Even though it wasn't originally sold in the Midwest where I live, I had a dealer get one for me back in 2010. Over the weekend, my car stranded me with the infamous steering column issue. I couldn't get it started in the Mall parking lot...no prior warning lights, etc. Upon trying to start it, the red "key" light came on. Today they fixed it under the "extended warranty" which should've been a recall. The dealer did tell me the parts aren't always in stock, and some customers had to wait a month for a part and repair. Bad job, Nissan. The romance is over, and I'm kicking you to the curb.

Favorite Features

Push button start Hybrid system (borrowed from Toyota Prius) Keyless entry Dual heating controls Traction control

Suggested Improvements

Better recall policy and correspondence with owners Better tires--this car handled poorly in snow with OEM tires Better trim options on Hybrids
