Great basic car with tolerable downsides
By hnamous on
2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
After 7,500 miles, my experience so far has been mostly good. Power is adequate for everyday driving, but it doesn't inspire much confidence in highway passing. The build quality seems to be good although one of my foglights popped out for no apparent reason. No reliability issues so far. The interior materials are acceptable. Missing standard features such as HD radio and USB. Bluetooth is GREAT.
Handling is not so good (possibly due to the tires).
Rattling under acceleration.
Squealing breaks (wet or dry).
CVT is noisy and dimwitted.
Never achieved EPA estimates - and I drive carefully!
