Great Commuter

2009 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Bottom line is this is a great commuter car. It is comfortable, gets great gas mileage (28-32), has plenty of power compared to its competition, pleasure to drive (i didn't mean fun, you might fall asleep). I think it out performs the competition all away around. I drove them all. Some small issues I have are: the engine noise in the cabin(its a screamer if you like to drive on the harder side). The CVT can be annoying. It truly does sound like a motor boat. You'll have to use autostick to calm her down. Also the brakes are extremely grabby, be prepared, you'll get used to it though. Handles great in the rain with contiprotrac tires. Overall great car for the money!
