Good 4 Dr. Sedan Choice!
By ncgent on
2009 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Owned this car for just over 1 month, and I know I made the right choice. I had 23 choices: Accord, Camry or an Altima. I was looking at the 6 cyl. versions of these sedans. Nissan came through in quality of the interior over the Camry. The Honda had more road noise than the others. The Nissan was the most comfortable for me (6'1", 200#). The handling was superior in the Altima - it felt most in touch with the road. I thought I would not like the transmission, but I LOVE the CVT. No harsh shifting points. The CVT does make a noise when accelerate or shutting the engine down like a jet engine. The 10 year CVT warranty assured me it is ok. I do not hesitate to recommend it.
BOSE, Bluetooth, heated seats, CVT, power there when needed w/3.5 motor.
