Kelyless entry and fuel mileage

No reason to avoid other than some people may not see you driving down low.

If You Like The Way It Looks, Just Get One! You Will Love It! — This is easily one of the best cars I have ever owned and I have owned more than 30 in my lifetime. The Altima Coupe is all keyless and runs great! The styling isn't like anything else out there on the road, really. She is all problem free after 3+ years *(bought her in 2007) and still going pretty strong even after being in an accident with a full size truck. Big 4 cylinder *(2.5 liters - 175 HP) with great fuel mileage and a lot of fun to drive!

Sweet Ride! — Test drove the Altima 3.5 SE coupe with the Premium Package and C V T. Awesome car, Nissan has come a long way with the Altima. Felt just as quick as my Mustang GT, and handled better. The only thing I did not like about the car was that it required premium fuel for optimum performance, but I would definitely buy one if graduate school was not so expensive!

Best Nissan Coupe Io've Driven! — I often drive the 08 Altima coupe and I absolutely love it . Very responsive (even for the 4 cylinder) and smooth. Really comfortable and love the styling. Also the interior layout is wonderful. I have no negatives to report. I love this car

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!

My Car — FWD so kinda sucks in the winter but overall a great car. pretty fast great sound system and just good luxury quality vehicle. Cost is a bit high but you do pay for what you get. It comes with everything you want: sunroof, leather, 9 speakers, and of course a push start button so you never have to take your keys out of your pocket.

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.

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.
