Best-in-Class from Drvr's point of View

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


I've been driving this car for 2 yrs. Seriously compared to similar in class before I got into this one. Camry/Accord/Malibu/Aura, even BMW3 feel less comfortable (Driver's). Handling is amazing, Sporty suspension makes it feel just Right! //Concerns. 1st:= still can't get used to how CVT behaves when downshifting using TipTronic(manual mode):going from 4th to 3d (*those are not actual gears on CVT!) makes the car jerk a bit, but @ approx.50-60km/hr is does not happen, yet it's not always easy to catch that moment. 2nd:= Fuel economy [city] a bit worse than advertised: My Min 8.7L/100km (Summer), Max 10.3L/100km (Winter). The Longest drive on 1 tank = 810 km (-not bad!;)

Best Features

Handling, Comfort, SpeedUp(thanks to CVT!) - I can pretty much do any 6cyl car on the 1st 100m!:)), Visibility, TipTronic, spacious trunk, pretty good (& Loud enough:))) Stereo even for the standard model, Heated Seats(Fabric!).
