2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I purchased my Altima last April 2007 and have over 9000 miles on the car. I considered the 3.5L model, but chose the extra MPG I could get with the 2.5L. There is adequate power with the 2.5 and I have never been underpowered in any situation. The select shift component is nice when having to accelerate without pushing the gas pedal to the floor to have the engine respond. The handling is great. The Altima kept my wife out an accident last week when an elderly woman pulled out in front of her on a highway. The car continued to handle while the ABS was working. Eyewitnesses asked about the car because they couldn't believe it. Strongly suggest buying one. Get the convenience package.


Best Features

The ride at 75 mph is quiet and I feel I have positive control of the car. The convenience package with the sunroof and leather wrapped steering wheel add to the comfort of the car.


Worst Features

Memory on the power seat would be nice when you have two drivers in the family using the car.

2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Traded in my Mazda6s for a 2007 Altima with the SL package. Have not regretted at all. The car drives very nicely. Unfortunately all my trips are very short. I would love to spend more time in this car. Gas mileage is good, seats are comfortable, Bose stereo is incredible. I am so happy to be back with a Nissan. The Mazda was nice but too many little problems. I used to own before that a Nissan Altima 99. What a difference. The car has finally matured into an affordable luxury car.


Best Features

Bose Stereo, styling, push button ignition, quiet engine and rear vents. Very cold a/c. Love that Nissan has always had great a/c.


Worst Features

Improve air pressure on rear vent. Dual a/c should have dual fan speed for both driver and passenger. 4cyl SL should come standard with folding side mirrors. Wipers on high speed should not move the car when stopped.

2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Bought the 2.5SL package and love the leather seats and wood trim. This car balanced all my needs well: style, comfort, performance, economy and fun. My clients have felt comfortable in it. Seat was hard at first but either I or the seat adjusted (now at 5k miles). Standard radio sounds great but doesn't display artist. ABS grabby - feels like they are about to launch me through the windshield at every stop. I like all the room in the trunk, glove box, consoles and cabin. The wipers throw water back into their own way. CVT and spry engine makes it fun to drive, although it seems a little light in the front end under fast acceleration or hard braking. Feels pushed around by the wind, too.


Best Features

Smoothness of CVT, engine acceleration, interior and exterior styling, moonroof, keyless entry, leather seats and spacious cabin. Sound of standard radio. Good MPG but not great. Car is a lot of fun to drive, looks good and is easy to wash, too!


Worst Features

Options too pricey and packaged with stuff I didn't want. Cavernous storage spaces amplify sound of times in them. Don't like cycling through computer menus to get to the 3 features I always use. Front end feels drifty. Brakes good but grabby.

2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I test drove Altima 4 and 6 cyl, Accord V-6, Mazda3 and Mazda6 with the V6. Owned a 2001 Accord V6 and loved it, except transmission issues. I've owned 1 four cyl and swore I would only drive at least a V6. That was 10 years ago and 6 new cars ago. Why the Altima won? The CVT is amazing. I never feel like it is underpowered because of the CVT. The engine does get a little loud when merging on highways, but is silent at cruise. I can accept the 10 seconds of engine noise for V6-like acceleration. The V6 seemed too jumpy. Handles great and is fun to drive. Very quiet and full of features. If you are a driver who likes a car with lots of features and is fun to drive. Check out Altima.


Best Features

CVT by far, Bose stereo and Bluetooth, keyless ignition and entry, huge glove box that's lighted when lights are on. Very well thought out storage design such as removable cup holders, console lid that slides for comfort, etc. Can roll windows down with key fob. Dual zone auto climate controls.


Worst Features

Auto locking doors, better fake wood trim (it really stands out since the rest of the car has such a quality interior). Has auto headlights, but they don't go on when the wipers are on (I don't know if any car does this but it would be nice since its the law). Midrange ctrl. on radio. Trac. Control.

2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Review

My wife purchased the Altima to replace her 2000 Neon. After driving everything else in its class, the Altima was her choice. The power from the 2.5L is impressive with either the 6-speed manual or CVT, and is plenty for merging in rush-hour traffic, while being smoother than most other 4-cyl cars. The interior is nicely styled and executed, with high-quality materials and excellent fit-and-finish (much better than the interior in my mothers '03 Altima). It rides and drives well, sportier than the Camry and Accord, but not as much as my Mazda6. The Convenience Plus package is well worth the price for the moonroof and alloy wheels alone. An excellent choice for a competent midsize sedan.


Best Features

Intelligent Key may be a gimmick to some, but my wife likes it. Excellent gas mileage (better than the Neon), and the 20-gallon tank allows a 600+ mile range, excellent for high-mile commutes. The base stereo with single CD player is impressive. Lots of space for passengers, both front and rear.


Worst Features

Steering is too light, and ride is floaty compared to my Mazda6.
