2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Just got back after 2300 mile vacation to the Colorado Rockies. The Altima was terrific. Wife has back problems - no issues riding for that distance.
Up and down the mountains was effortless. Mileage was outstanding averaging 34mpg for the whole trip.
The CVT in mountain driving was pure pleasure. On a couple of really step grades I manually downshifted just for grins. The rest of the time the engine/transmission did a great job of keeping things under control.
Even took the Altima on a couple of roads marked for 4wd. it did not complain. I think it's part mountain sheep!
Very, very please with the Altima.
Fuel economy. On part of our mountain trip we were registering 40mpg.
Handling. It's part sports car.
Performance. Passes anything I want to pass.
Driver & passenger comfort very nice.
Sound system is truly outstanding!
We have the manually controlled climate control system, but it is very easy to adjust to comfort level.
