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


Just bought a used 08 Altima SL with 10K miles. I like the sportiness of the car and the interior. Averaging 25.1 overall mileage (per the trip computer) and drive primarily in the city. Only issue I am having is a slight "lifter" noise which I have researched and they say it is a "timing chain tensioner" issue. Will take it in a week or so for the dealer to look at it. If I didn't have this issue, I would rate it a 9.

Best Features

Navigation, BOSE stereo, handling, interior and exterior styling, quiet car. Gets up and goes quicker than my 97 Maxima off the line.

Worst Features

Cup holders won't even hold a regular ceramic cup of coffee! Engine is a bit noisy. I know it is a 4 banger, but I drove other 4 cylinder cars that quieter. Need better job with sound deadening in the engine and firewall compartment areas.
