2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I purchased the car 4/11/08 and have almost 7000 miles on it already. The power is great (for a hybrid). So far I wish for a bigger trunk, but I knew that before I purchased it. Braking is top notch and I have never needed more power in passing or on hills. I drive mainly freeway to work and road trips. My gas mileage has been 30-32 mpg avg. I have seen as high as 37 mpg but like I said I drive pretty fast. I average 75-90 on the freeway. The car is very solid at all speeds but does very poorly up to speed with wind.

Best Features

Technology package is worth the price. leather, bluetooth, Bose stereo, blinkers on the mirror and many other gadgets and features. The steering is very light and nimble and doesn't compare with any other mid-size car on the market.

Worst Features

I would love to have seat and mirror memory. I am 6'3" and my wife is 5'8"... moving everything all the time is a bit of a pain. Trunk space and maybe a pass through and rear fold down seats would be great but not sure if it would be possible.
