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


First hour off the lot, I already had problems. I looked up at the pillar on the driver's side (the spot where the headliner meets above the window), and I see a wet spot. Had to take it back to the dealer. Apparently there was a blockage in the drain hose from the sunroof. Next day, I get a call. The front of the car is soaking wet. The evaporator has also malfunctioned. So I bought the car Wednesday, drove for a total of 40 miles (20 miles home, and then 20 miles to the dealership), and will finally be able to drive it again Friday afternoon.

Best Features

I love the exterior. The Scion tc/G35 appearance combination is excellent.

Worst Features

Should come standard with MP3 cd player. Convenience package should include power seats for both driver and passenger, not just driver. Brakes too hard. Factory upholstery on headliner (a beige color) does not come close to matching Charcoal interior. And of course, the leak problem.
