1st month review - 09 Altima Hybrid (NAH
By Golf4 on


2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Bought new 09 NAH. Plan is to keep the car for roughly 8 years so chose the best value considering cost over that time frame (gas, maintenance, tax credit, rebates/incentives, invoice). Toyota Camry-H (TCH) and NAH were top contenders. $2350 tax credit pushed NAH ahead and Nissan was aggressive in rebates - chose NAH (fully loaded). Engine shifts to gas very quickly during acceleration. The car doesn't go to hybrid mode quickly when the engine is cold even on a hot sunny day after work. Adjusting my driving (longer brakes, slow acceleration, maintain cruising longer - I get about 33-38mpg. aggressive driving 24-28, normal driving 28-30mpg in city (25mph-55mph roads), freeway about 35mpg

Best Features

trip computer give all that you want to know about your car performance, mileage, lots of indicators. I listen to music a lot - love bose system.

Worst Features

Features i miss the most from my previous car 1. memory seats 2. automatic rear shades 3. poor radio reception on some AM channels (even my 2000 odysessy gets better reception when parked next to each other)
