Nissan Altima Review--an okay car
By tmagman1 on
2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I really didn't have nor did I want to spend a great deal of money on a car. I test drove the Mazda 3 and the Hyundai Elantra. The Hyundia actually did pretty well. I decided to give the Altima a shot. It wasn't a bad ride, and a decent value for what you get. My biggest complaint is the horsepower. I believe 175 hp is low for a car this size. The new Hyundia Sonata offers a 198 hp engine and will give the Altima a run for its money. In my opinion the engine is relatively loud during acceleration. While cruising the engine is quiet, but during take off this engine is very loud.
Not enough horsepower in the base model. I've had the car two weeks. Something is loose in the dash. It vibrates at take off. The quality could be better. I continuous put my elbow close to the window. Now there a small dent in the panel. Not enough padding I guess
