Like Car But Has An Incurable Bug

Vehicle2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewI Generally like the car especially the gas mileage. Plenty of interior room, and trunk space. The only negative seems to be paring of the CVT transmission with a 4-cyl. engine. When starting uphill from a stop, particularly w/the A/C on, it feels like the engine is missing or that it is having difficulty shifting gears. I think it is the latter. I've taken it to the dealership 3 times, and they cannot find anything wrong and suggested I use a higher octane gas. That did not work (and defeats the purpose of buying a 4-cyl.). So, I use the shift control in the "manual" mode when going up a hill from a stop and do not experience the "missing" feeling.
Best FeaturesGas mileage; body style; large trunk
Worst FeaturesMore lower lumbar support in the front seats; inside temperature control that will "set" the temp., so that one does not have to continually "fritz" with the temp. control knob.
