2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

There trying to get mpg. So there experimenting with transmissions at the customers expense. Cot constant veribul trans same idea as a golf cart. Belt driven ford is trying that computer controlled stick shift trans in their focus that there trying to pass off as a automatic that's worse than the cvt trans. You better look at the drive train manly the trans before you spend your hard earned money on rheas junks or you will wish you had! The dealers won't help you. They dident mg this junk there trying to fix it. To me if the car don't have a traditional automatic or standard shift is pass no shortage of cars out there!

2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

i purchased this car used in 2012 with 21,000 miles on it. once you get use to the cvt you will fine that since it does not shift that the acceleration is very smooth as an automatic should be especially with the cruise control on and your go up and down hills. great fuel economy. on long trips with the a/c on and the cruise on i could get 38 miles per gallon at 78 mph. compared to my corolla the altima did need more needed repairs. the water pump and front wheel bearings went out at 80,000 miles. at 100,000 miles the a/c compressor coil quit. the brakes wore out at 110,000 miles and the alternator developed a bearing noise at 127,000 miles. while the corolla at 180,000 still has all her original parts except for the brakes.

Review

That I was driving down the highway and all of a sudden my car started slowing down and I didn't know what was happening, I started seeing smoke coming from under the hood, I couldn't even stop the car, it continued until it stop doors locked and on fire, it was blazing , if it happened been for a passer by ,I would have died in that car on January 5 2017

Review

Bought this car used in 2015 with only 10,000 mi. on it. I now have 54,000 on it and its been a Great buy so far. The only thing I have done to it other than oil changes is a brake job at 48,000 mi. my only complaint is that the seats are not as comfortable as my 2005 altima.

Review

After 6 years and 165,500 milesaside from oil, tires, brakes (scheduled maintenanvpce) the only issue I had was a failed air conditioner compressor and a door lock that would occasionally stick. Still runs and looks great.
