Very disappointing car

2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
The performance was lackluster. The 4-cylinder 2.5L had to be pushed hard to keep up with traffic, especially on the hills. The engine was noisy, too. Mileage was good when on flat terrain and when really taking it easy, but because the engine was so under-powered I only averaged 21 MPG. The seats had good bolsters, but the cushions were too hard to get comfortable, especially on long drives, and one slid on the seat under hard cornering. The cloth material was nice and did not get too hot or too cold. The head restraints are horrible and put the neck at an uncomfortable angle. The handling was good, but the ride was too harsh to make it a comfortable car for the family.
Favorite Features
Large trunk. Good A/C. Nice cloth. Average interior design. Inexpensive tires to replace. Decent visibility out. iPod plug in.
Suggested Improvements
Car needs improved seats, smoother ride, quieter interior, better gas mileage in the real world, more power, something other than me-too exterior design... it really just needs a whole new car.
