2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I purchased this car off lease, with 29,000 miles. No real issues to speak of until the odometer hit 93k and the car started to make a terrible whining noise in the drivetrain. My local garage confirmed that the CVT was the culprit. Nissan dealer wanted $4300 to replace it and the other quotes I received were even higher. The service guy at Nissan said the transmissions are good for 100,000 miles if you do the fluid flush every 30k ( did mine at the recommenced 60k). As everyone is aware these Nissan CVTs are complete crap. In addition to the premature failure the performance is terrible, with low speed herky jerky movement. So bad is the design that Nissan will only give a 12,000 mile warranty on the replacement. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this clam.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Great, stylish coupe. I am second owner, have had it 5 1/2 years. Replaced the battery, had timely oil changes but otherwise maintenance free. Highly recommend as long as you don't require use of the back seat a lot.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

This car is more comfortable than the new VW Passat. Seats are comfortable. Even without power seats, I can easily adjust the seat. There are no blind spots, either. The privacy glass is wonderful! Without the tint the car gets quite hot in the summer, which must be due to the large windshield. Gas mileage is good for an older car (2011 model; it’s 2018) I average 24-26 MPH. The steering is responsive and easy. The car still shifts like it is new. I do use the manual mode, as well. It works with no problems at all. After considering a new car purchase, I decided not to buy a new car. Any technology it may lack is made up for with easy to use, inexpensive after-market parts. I use a Bluetooth adapter in my radio. Simply put, with 134,000 miles, this car is the most reliable I have owned.

Updated: the interior cloth- which is present on the handle/door- shows wear more than any other area. The newer models replace the cloth with plastic which was a great move.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

This has been a great car. Travel is easy and comfortable. She will fly when speed is necessary. Regular maintenance is pretty much all that has been necessary. Gas mileage is better than most vehicles. 35 - 37 mpg on road (depends on your driving habits).

2011 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

This V-6 sedan delivers very good acceleration, the ride is solid but quiet and provides a feeling of good control. Other than a failure of the computer system shortly after purchase, the car has performed flawlessly for over 6 years. Interior is adequate but for the price one can't expect too much. In short, a car that combines value with very good performance.
