2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I was in the market for a used car because I didn't think we could buy new with our budget. But we stumbled upon the Altima on sale and 0% financing. I love this car and am so happy with our purchase. The maintenance is inexpensive (previously drove a used Suburban). The car drives so nicely and gets great gas mileage. We bought the basic, basic model, but it still has A/C and power windows, which are luxuries in my opinion. The seats are microfiber-ish and after almost 2 years of owning the car, the light grey upholstery is not stained (thank you, OxyClean!) I bought plastic floor mats (a must with kids). We installed our own stereo and 4 speakers. Great job, Nissan!

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I have had my Altima for a year now, and am 90% happy with it. The seats are pretty good, but after about 6-8 hours on the road, start to show their inadequacy. I have put over 26,000 miles in a year, and not had any issues. Very quiet, does well at high speeds, great a/c and heat, love the Bose and the keyless entry/start. Not perfect when it comes to tracking a straight line at high speed. Needs micro-corrections frequently, and the computer screen should have been recessed into the dash to avoid glare from the sun when the backup camera is in use. Would definitely buy another one.


Favorite Features

Love the Bose stereo, tilt and telescope wheel, the backup camera, XM satellite radio, automatic climate control works well. Good bright headlights, nicely designed trunk space. Comfy back seat. Love the keyless entry, keyless start, great gas mileage with large tank for impressive range. Fit and finish of vehicle is superb, and paint job is excellent. Love the streaming bluetooth. The CVT is awesome. Don't know if I could go back to a transmission that shifts, and it works well in Mountain driving, too. All in all, very good car. Very satisfied customer. Also love the styling.


Suggested Improvements

Engineer an undercarriage that will track a straight line at high speeds like my old 66 Chrysler 300 did. Make the seats a little more comfortable for long trips. Put the computer screen in a little cove where it is shaded from the glare of the sun. Otherwise, Nissan did a great job on this car. Very little to criticize. Should make remote start standard equipment.

2011 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Wow this car is great. I got the 3.5SR becuase I like a car that has some get up and go. I was suprised at the power of this car. My past 2 cars were a 2000 Audi A6 2.7T and a 2006 BMW 325xi and this thing has them beat. The technology in this car is awesome too. I got all the packages available and they are worth the money. I have had the car for 8 months now and 14,500mi and haven't had a problem except for the home link which was fixed fast.


Favorite Features

Power, Room, 9.3GB HDD, Bluetooth Phone and Audio, iPod connect, DVD, Back up camara, Leather, heated seats, HID lights, Mostly everything about this car.


Suggested Improvements

None that I can think of.

Review

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my sporty new Altima 2.5 SL, with heated seats, sunroof and xm radio and it's getting 27.5 MPG in the city! That's more than the sticker said! I have bought a lot of cars and dealt with a lot of car dealers. Buying a car should be fun and enjoyable! It really was this time, thanks to Ben Coates and his team at Go Nissan Southwest. Whenever I'm ready for a new car, I'll be back.

2011 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Since purchasing this car new, I have had nothing but problems. The moon roof hose kinked causing water damage of carpets. Nissan repaired the hose but refuses to clean carpets or covering the cost of cleaning the carpets. The acceleration has become sluggish even on premium gasoline. Navigation system has towns listed as both "town of XXX, state" and XXX, state". For any given address searched, one will work, one will result in a "no information available". Also the navigation does not assume you want a point of interest near you. It will list all even those > 80 miles away. Heated seats take greater than 10 minutes to warm up. AC is very good and cabin climate control is great. H


Favorite Features

Climate control is superb


Suggested Improvements

Better construction, better quality construction. Improved manufacturer support
