2008 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Bought car 3/08 and now have over 16k. So far no trips back to the dealer. Getting 24mpg in suburban driving and averaging 30-31 highway at 70-75mph. Very happy with gas mileage with all this power. Continental tires have provided smooth quiet ride to go with extremely quiet engine, which compliments a great sound system. Have found seats very comfortable for long drives. Gauges and buttons easy to use/follow. Trunk plenty spacious and nice having fold down split rear seats. Worth having the leather seats (heated - works great) and the other additional options like heated mirrors. Worth it. Debated between the 4 & 6. Worth it to pay for the 6 for the quiet and powerful engine

Best Features

Good gas mileage with all that power. You need to pass someone quickly - no problem. Quiet engine. Superb Bose sound system. Problem free. Key Fob nice BUT I'm blowing through batteries in both units every month. I'd buy this car again and recommend it based on my experience.

Worst Features

Key FOB battery life. Better paint/clearcoat quality. Paint chips much easier than any other car I have ever had. Better outside mirrors needed to eliminate large blind area. Dual climate control for passenger side doesn't work very effectively. Rework horn so you don't have to push so dam hard
