Love the car - but poor rear visibility
By Peter on


2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I have owned the car for about 3-months (purchased the vehicle new in June 2010). So far, very pleased. It's very quiet and powerful on the road - and a very smooth transmission. Reliable (so far). As far as handling goes, I noticed the car is not as stable as my '01 maxima. The steering is aggressive, and the brakes are touchy which leads to a jittery drive for your passengers despite trying to drive conservative. The center console storage has a door which is annoying to use and doesn't lock down well (it pops up as you drive). Other than that, seats very comfortable. The rear seat is firm and flat, allowing a passenger to sleep easily if needed on a long trip.

Best Features

comfortable seats, smooth/quiet performance

Worst Features

Major - very poor rear visibility (Have to be careful - easy to backup into signs, other cars). Minor - internal storage doors (console and rear of shifter) need to be redesigned - its soft-touch door shock-absorbers broke, and the locking latch is too weak (pops up when hitting bumps)
