Good vehicle but room for improvement

Vehicle2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI traded in a 2004 Acura TSX for this car. The TSX was almost perfect except for mpg. This one has great styling, better mpg, more bells and whistles like remote start etc. The interior finish, though acceptable, is not good. The edges around flaps, knobs etc have some gaps. Already some severe rattles coming from closed sunroof. The trip computer needs an improved interface. No complains about performance or handling for this size car in its category. Cycling through information display in the console is tedious. Should do better for model with navi. The music system is good but not stellar. The tweeter was a notch above in the TSX. 20 gallon tank means 700 mile range so 1 fillup/month.
Best FeaturesStyling, good mpg (struggling for 40 but probably need engine to break-in) Currently at 36 in 70% city driving. Handling, performance, navi, AC, bluetooth, remote start, backup camera etc.
Worst FeaturesImprove interior fit and finish. When a new car goes over a pothole or road imperfection there should be a solid thud, not variety of squeaks and rattles. Find way to display mpg, mpg meter, range, trip miles, trip time, external temperature etc. on single information screen in nav. HID lamps.
