2.5SL on a 100 mile commute to NYC

2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I bought this car primarily due to my experience with my 2003 2.5S that I bought used and drove to 130,000 miles before giving in to treating myself to an upgrade. At the time I drove 1000 miles or more per week. Yes, Per week, so I wanted some additional items to comfort my drive a bit. I opted for the 2.5SL since gas was over $3.69/gal at the time but I wanted a nicer interior and added the connection package so I could have Bluetooth. Honestly, I was disappointed in the Bose stereo upgrade. The headrests lack a forward/backward adjustment which can prove a bit uncomfortable at times. I flipped them around to solve this issue.

Best Features

I Love getting 600+ miles out of a tank of gas. The rear seats have room for actual adults. I love the CVT transmission, it adds to the drive comfort.

Worst Features

Add further adjustment to headrests. Better bluetooth system. Bose stereo should be higher end with a subwoofer.
