Fun, but room for improvement
By GMO on


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


Fun car. Looks great. Issues: Super loud wind noise esp. with windows down and driving over 40mph. Steering is weird. Always aligning it. tends to pull too much to left. Found condensation in rear brake light already. Volume knob makes squeaky sounds sometimes. Don't like the seek control on steering wheel. why hold it down and have to wait. That isn't good. Brakes are jumpy and just not right. The CVT shifting is okay,but takes too long to shift and hangs in high rev too long. It is better when i do it manual and shift at the proper time. It is not smooth at all. it's fun to drive around town. Engine revs a bit too loud and wish the shifting was better. Mileage is good and it looks nice

Best Features

push button start. floor mats Bose radio

Worst Features

fog lights should be standard. handling, steering needs improvement Shifting needs improvement. Noise reduction is necessary, why so noisy with windows down??? ridiculous. steering wheel controls need improvement. alarm keeps going off in my pocket. make that a hold down feature instead of trunk.
