Super Coupe — The Nissan Altima Coupe is an awesome vehicle. Super good looks, great driving experience. Great pickup, awesome brakes, very good handling, super comfort and style. I would highly recommend this vehicle for a daily commuter, or a Sunday driver. Job well done Nissan.

Nissan Altima Coupe — This car has pretty good gas mileage.The steering is very nice. It is pretty fun to drive but it is just not a family car nor does it have very much power. But what do you expect for a 4 cylinder? The look of the car is slick, I actually really like the look of it. Its not a noisy car either.

Pros

Hugs road.  Comfortable car to drive.  Very Reliable, only needed routine maintenance to this point. Very responsive and fast.  Looks sporty.  Actually has more leg room in back seat than some sedans.

Cons

Head room limited in back seat.  Trunk is very shallow, but back seats fold down for longer items.  Fit a 7' artificial Christmas tree in the trunk one time!

Super Fun To Drive — I love everything about this car! The acceleration is impressive as well as the breaking. Always feel in control when driving. 6 year old car that has only had routine maintenance, no unexpected repairs. Upgraded options with backup camera as well as Bose sound system add to the enjoyment.

Great First Car For Our 16 Year Old Daughter — Overall we have loved this car. Not a fan of the push starts though. Easy to park due to the car being on the smaller side. Can't complain on the great fuel costs. Has been a good car for my daughter

Pros

Beautiful lines and looks.  Strong engine and transmission.  Hugs the road and can be driven very aggressively if that's what you want.  It is also a great cruising car on the highway.   Gas mileage is pretty good for the engine size.  I have gotten as much as 30 mpg on the highway

Cons

Not too comfortable in the back seat.  You go in front ways and have to back out.  Don't buy anything too big that has to fit in the trunk.  Smallish to say the least.

Stylish And Fun To Drive Sports Coupe — This car performed well beyond my expectations. Not only does it appeal to the eye, it is very snappy performer. You can drive it as aggressive if you want or dial it back and be very sensible. With a sun roof , auto temperature control and seat warmers, it can be driven as comfortably in Snow as well as in the sunshine. Dynamite car for someone that likes to drive a windy road every once in a while.

Pros

GREAT gas mileage, lots of comfort & power features, sporty, LOVE the keyless entry and exit and push button start, love the power driver seat and dual climate control.

Cons

Hard to get things in and out of back seat, seatbelt sits too high on my neck, no matter how I adjust it.

Love My Altima! — This car has almost everything I could want in a car. It handles great on the road, gets excellent gas mileage, has so many features inside that make it a pleasure to drive, like aux port, sunroof, leather seats, power driver seat, steering wheel controls for stereo, cruise control, and blue tooth hands free phone, dual climate controls, and much more. I love the push button start and the keyless entry and exit - so convenient not to have to dig my keys out all the time. The only thing I do not like about my car is the very uncomfortable angle that the seatbelt strikes me across my neck, no matter how I adjust it. And the only feature that is missing is memory seat. It takes me a while to get it exactly the way I like it, and then my husband jumps in it to drive, and I have to start all over. I never realized how convenient that feature was until I didn't have it.

Sexy — I love the speed and acceleration of this car. I get lots of looks after a car wash, All it really needs are some brand new wheels to accentuate the exterior. I installed the rear spoiler which added more fancy to a sexy car.

One Of The Best I've Ever Had, And I'm 63 — A little small to be family practical, a bit of a squeeze for a 250 pound guy to climb in, but once in, it's great. Probably the best car I've ever owned in many respects. I really need just a bit more room to cart about antiques!

Nissan Altima Coupe 3.5 Se Is An Amazing Car And I Am Extremely Happy With Purchasing It! — Acceleration is great, espsecially with the CVT transmission. Quality is great!! I think the car looks hot inside and out. Gas seems a little more pricey than my other car due to the bigger tank and the recommendation for premium gas. I love driving my car, it's awesome without being too flashy.
