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


I'm going on my 3rd set of brakes in 2 years. Front brakes I should say. I've owned various cars through my life, drive mostly highway miles, and regularly check my brake fluid. I can't say I recommend this or the refresh model based on this. It's getting a little costly to say the least. I've owned a prior altima to this and had no issues, and drove in the city at the time.

If you search it, it's a common problem which has not been issued a recall, so I guess it's not as known or common as it needs to be for a recall. I can without a doubt say this is my last altima, and I will always wait 2-3 years after the refresh and do proper diligence prior to buying a car.

Best Features

It has an auxilary jack. That is my favorite feature.

Worst Features

Improve the brakes. Maybe the passenger seat comfort.
