2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


This is the 5th Nissan (3 Sentras, 2 Altimas)that I have purchased. The 2009 Altima is a fun car to drive that looks great. Interior is roomy with plenty of leg room for 4 adults. Seats are comfortable. Standard sound system is adequate for an adult. The 2.5L performance is ok for the daily commute. Fuel mileage is great averaging 30 mpg driving 65 mph. CVT takes some getting used to but is generally smooth. Ride, braking, and handling are very good. As for value, you get a lot car for the price. Only complaint: It took me a while to figure out that carrying my remote in my pocket could accidently open the front windows. It would be nice to be able to disable this feature on the remote.

Best Features

Push button ignition, keyless remote, CVT, leather seats, and CD/radio sound

Worst Features

Larger (wider) tires and wheels for the SL models, standard fog lights, folding mirrors.
