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


Traded in a WRX because wanted a better highway cruiser. Nice car inside and out, but had a couple of issues. Windows roll down by themselves, once overnight during freezing rain. Nissan mechanics could not fix that problem. The other issue was the CVT. On wet pavement with a fast takeoff the transmission would stay at around 4000 RPM unless you backed off completely from the gas and waited a few seconds. Really liked the looks, couldn't live with the two problems. Traded Altima in on a VW.

Best Features

Base stereo was excellent. Very sporty appearance and quality interior.

Worst Features

Remove the auto roll down feature of the windows and lose the CVT.
