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


Compared several midsize cars before I bought an Altima 2.5 S in Ocean Gray. Something about the design and drive of the car won me over. Also add in the fact that JD Power gave the 2009 the nod in quality and Consumer Digest gave the 2010 it's top honor in midsize sedans. The vehicle is deceptively roomy. Back seats have plenty of space for my teenage sons and I have plenty of leg room to drive. I fit in the seat like a glove and the new changes for 2010 make the Altima feel like a sports car. My only complaint is the gas mileage. I am not even at 20 MPG. I am now on my 3rd tank of gas and hope to start getting at least 25 MPG, but I don't think I will get it. Not sure why.

Best Features

Interior design is well thought out as well as the exterior. CVT transmission takes some getting used too. Dash and interior lighting well done. Materials for cloth seats way better than 2009.

Worst Features

MPG lower than sticker suggestions. Side mirrors and rear end design create blind spots.
