CRAPPIEST Car I ever owned
By giorgos2 on


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


I bought the 2009 Altima in March 2009. It is by far the CRAPPIEST car I ever owned (among 10+ cars). Extremely noisy cabin, gas-alcoholic, rides uncomfortably, issues with transmission, touchy brakes, cheaply-made interior, seals already weathered, very noisy while accelerating, etc, etc. ... and not to mention the much higher insurance-premiums Nissan owners have to pay for such a piece of crap. CVT is totally worthless - it truly subtracts any little value this vehicle has. The only positive attribute I can talk about is the style of the car, and outside shape/contours, which were quite a big factor in choosing it - I still think it has a great look (as most Nissans do).

Best Features

Outside shape/contour Interior style (but not quality)

Worst Features

Will have to write a book. This car is so bad that there are no places to start making improvements.

True, nissan CVT transmission really sucks. Nissan knows the issue and they have extended the warranty up to 100k miles. will never buy a nissan again
