2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I look forward to driving my Altima because of its feel, exterior looks, instrument display, and gas mileage. I drove a Honda Prelude si for 23 years, and planned to get another Honda or try a Hyundai Azera or Camry, but checked out the Altima and really liked it. This car has acceleration power (it's a rocket). I'm not one to race, but occasionally at a light on the freeway I drive back and forth to work on someone in the lane next to me gives me that look of "Let's do it." I have not lost yet, and I'm not really mashing the pedal to the the metal.
Push button ignition, CVT, and CD/radio sound (great bass).
Brakes are sensitive, but I'm adjusting to them the more I drive. Wind is loud when on the freeway and the driver's window is down. Water drips on my head and the inside of the trunk when the trunk is opened and any rain water/car wash water is still on the car. Power front seats would be great.
