Pros

I love the CVT transmission.  You can not hear or feel the gears shift.  This makes for a smooth and pleasant driving experience.

Cons

I am currently paying $400 per month for the car.  I have a goal of opening my own business.  That $400 can go to the start up costs for the business.  Another con is that it costs over $50 to fill up the tank at the pump.  It takes 87 unleaded gas.

It Is A Wonderful Car To Drive! — I really liked the fact that I have not had any major problems with it. I have not had to change the transmission. To the best of my knowledge the only things that I have replaced are the brakes, tires, and front bumper.

A Great Dependable Clean Used Car With No Problems — The CVT transmission is great because you never feel a shift as you accelerate. Push button start is great because you just leave your keys in your pocket at all times. It has great fuel economy with a I4 automatic transmission.

This Is A Outstanding Car That I Would Keep, But I Have Two Other Cars Already. — Incredible gas mileage 25(City)/32(Hwy). Extra large trunk. Fold down 50/50 seat backs provide extra storage for long items in trunk. Plenty of leg room in the front and back seats. New tires. Extra car from divorce. Priced to sell.

The Wise Choice — acceptional car. One of the most reliable cars and saves you money. No regrets. Went from a 2008 BMW 328xi coupe, to 2008 Nisaan Altima. Best choice. Plenty of power. The body style is pretty cool. Deffenetly a great buy.

Love It — Love it - 4 cylinder with plenty of torque because of the electric motors, gorgeous leather interior with touch screen navigation, 28-32 MPG overall (depending on how aggressive I drive) - fun, sporty, luxurious car! (My first "nice car") - Love it

Buy One If You Have The Opportunity Its Worth Every Penny — This car is bad ass car for a family car. This car is not only safe for the kiddos but also affordable to. It can be custom and it looks like a BMW easily. I would buy it again yep

2008 Nissan Altima — Tri-coat white pearl made this a beautiul car to look at especially in the sunlight. The options were not as good as the new 2009 Altima I own, however, it was to be our main family car until a truck hit the front end and rolled over the hood. Thankful the unibody design help up well in the crash and kept the passengers safe.
