2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
My wife and I were looking for a midsized sedan since we have a grandchild coming in a couple of months. We considered the Altima, Camry, Legacy, Mazda6, & Sonata. It must have the following: good comfortable ride, quiet, good fuel economy, & roomy. That was the dilemma. All of the cars that we considered as noted above can meet those requirements. So we dug deeper. We loved the CVT and the quietness it brought. So it was down to the Subaru and Nissan. Then July 4th weekend sale sealed the deal with the Nissan with up to $2k off with your own financing was great. Additional feature that we love is the smart key and push button start, absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.
Absolutely love the CVT & Smart key feature with the push button start. Love the dual exhaust as it finishes the look (only Sonata SE had it with the four cylinders). Handling feel is better than most of the midsized sedan that I test drove.
Not as quiet as the Toyota but can be addressed with additional sound deadening materials. Any car that goes out the door over $20k should have CD/MP3/WMA as a standard feature along with alloy wheels. "Finally" have a better way to get the feature set that you want and make it more affordable.
