A few surprises
By mbeach321 on
2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I am basically happy with the car but there were a few basic features I was shocked to find were not included in this model (2.5S w/convenience pkg): folding side view mirrors; adjustable lumbar support (even with power seat); and ability to play MP3 file CD's in the standard radio. After driving the car for 3 months now I can say that I really dislike the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and hate the droning noise the engine makes on hard acceleration. Lesson learned: spend A LOT more time driving the vehicle before purchasing.
Styling, roominess, instrument cluster, dashboard material & finish, great gas mileage.
Seat comfort (for long drives), more advanced std. Radio/CD, lumbar support, folding side-view mirrors, go back to normal non-CVT transmission, get rid of the goofy "space age" tail lights.
