2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


This car was my first at 17 years old. It's a silver 2008 Nissan Altima coupe 2.5S with 2.5S convenience package. For those, who are looking for a decent car for decent money, buy this car. It looks epic on the outside and spectacular on the inside. I bought it because it comes with some things that the Toyota Solara doesn't. Drives well, very powerful for a 4-banger, 175 horsepower is definitely enough for a starter car. Has 6 standard airbags and great crash test ratings. Intelligent Key is outta this world. Radio puts out a good crisp and clear sound. CVT manual mode is a definitely blast for those looking a little something extra. Gas mileage is okay at 25-28 mpg. Great car!

Best Features

Outside aerodynamics, 6 speaker audio system works well with iPod, Bose is overkill and basically sounds the same, save the 3 grand. Rear seat legroom is okay depending on the front seat passenger. Intelligent Key. 2.5L engine. Very clear bright gauge cluster.

Worst Features

Small trunk, but who cares, it's a coupe and you're supposed to sacrifice something for power and speed, rides firm and you will feel everything ittle crack in the road. Bright gauge cluster, could be blinding for some.
