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


Had the car for 1yr 5 months and have had ongoing issues with my drivers side seat sliding from side to side. Nissan has been a pain to deal with and even after I recently filed for lemon law they have yet to be in touch and have exceeded the 30 day time frame. Aside from seat moving side to side I have moisture in my right rear tail-light, unreliable brake pressure(they can be VERY touchy depending on which way the wind blows), blown speaker, rattles, and a hesitation when accelerating. Not sure how it has won "Highest Ranked in Initial Quality" from J.D. Power. Also has very uncomfortable seats, and poor handling. On the bright side good MPG, peppy and quiet.

Best Features

Love the Intelligent Key and push button start. Good MPG and peppy. CVT is nice too.

Worst Features

Improve speakers, radio reception, brake pedal feel, seats, and handling. The car feels like it floats around corners.
