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


Review

Bought this car after looking at the 09 Accord EX-L. The Altima is more sporty, quiet, and more fun to drive. Not to mention the excellent gas mileage. With the current Nissan rebate of $3250 and tax incentive, the price is hard to beat. You will not be disappointed in this car.


Best Features

Hybrid system and handling. Great looking car.


Worst Features

The auto-dimming rear view mirror is not effective in reducing glare from the cars behind you.

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


Review

The Altima Hybrid is a true Jekyll & Hyde. It saves me gas and its sporty and fun to drive. It has enough room for my family, I can stretch out in it and it looks great. When the spirit moves me and I just have to get away fast I hit the pedal to the metal and the electric motor feels like a supercharger as it pushes the 2.5 over 100mph!


Best Features

The hybrid system of course, and the looks.


Worst Features

I wish the fog lamp option was available from the factory. Memory for the power seat would be nice. Xenon headlamps, definitely.

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


Review

Very good driving experience so far;1800 miles, with one 600 mile road trip. Car has convenience package with electric driver seat, cloth interior (preferred over leather). Smooth, quiet ride, with easy and responsive handling. Size of car is comfortable for family of four on a short to medium trip, so far. MPG so far; low 29, high 34 mpg.


Best Features

Power driver seat. Telescoping and tilting steering wheel. Closeness and arrangement of center stack for adjusting A/C, radio, CD.


Worst Features

Separate the adjustment mechanism for tilt and telescoping steering wheel into two levers or handles. Current one-lever/handle is cumbersome to use, and almost unusable while driving.

Review

Extremely disappointed - first and last Nissan. Vehicle initially worked fine for first month than began to shake violently when going into EV mode. Dealer "fixed" it but now it will not drive in EV Mode. Been back to two separate dealers both of which say its normal. First said it has "learned" my driving habits so it won't drive in EV the second claims EV does not work when the air conditioning is on (doesn't seem to work with it off) 6,000 miles on it and am ready to unload it.


Best Features

Style, comfort and price.


Worst Features

Hybrid system
