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


Owned two Toyota Camrys and due to their age, decided time was right to purchase new. Couldn't beat the Nissan price deals. Since all reviews show Nissan comparable, decided to give it a try. Initial Altima impression, nice car; nice ride; but, dislike don't like the blindspots. I'm also concerned that the engine makes a slight pinging sound at idle (i.e. sounds like a diesel). Haven't had the chance to have the dealer look at it yet. All in all, haven't had the car long enough to decide if it's as high quality as Toyota.

Best Features

Gas mileage is great; ride is very good; exterior noise is comparable to other cars in this class. Only downside thus far--rattle in the overhead compartment (@2000 miles). Dealer fixed it.

Worst Features

Offer other interior leather color choices (besides black).
