Death Trap

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


Its been back to the dealer too many times, have owned the car around a month - what a headache! Twice today the passenger airbag light turned off with the passenger seated with seatbelt on. Whatever car you're getting, check out the NHTSA website for safety complaints. Its a bumpy ride, I guess the price you pay for more performance. The CVT is good, as is the low end torque. Attention to detail and quality are a couple of levels below Camry & Honda.

Best Features

CVT, gas mileage indicator, good acceleration.

Worst Features

improve quality, override to ON and OFF for passenger airbag, as the autosensor doesn't work and will likely cause a passenger fatality when the airbag doesn't deploy.
