2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I wanted to like the new 2011 Sonata, drove one for 3 days, nice but just couldn't pull the trigger. Dealership also had Nissan's so I decided to drive the Altima 2.5 SL as a comparison. The Sonata has the looks, but that's really were it ended. The Altima's ride is far better, handling is better, and the COMFORT is way superior (despite Sonta having more backseat room). The SL's options were almost identical (no back seat heater). I'm at 3,900 miles, getting 33 mph on the Hwy, 29 city, no complaints. The CVT is different, but not at all bothersome. This is a really nice vehicle--and for the price a great value!

Best Features

Leather seats, handling, MPG, comfort, XM, backup camera, and the looks--not far off from an Infinity. The trunk is huge! Large gas tank gives the car some serious legs to cover distances without making extra stops to fill up.

Worst Features

The cup holder set up between the front seats is odd. Power seat memory would be nice, as well as a power seat option for the passenger front seat. These are nit picks, this is a solid car!
