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.

Cons

Fast — Great car. Keeps me out of the cops radar, but will pretty much kills whatever I pull up next to. Only mid sized V-6 Sedan for around 25k that had the option of a manual tranny. A four door 350Z

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I Have Been An Avid Honda Owner But Nissan Has Swayed My Vote! Great Investment! — Even though I bought my 08 Altima used...I love it!! I was initially going to buy a Honda like I have done before..but Nissan has stolen the show. Great to drive. Nissan for life! Great product for me

Nice 4 door spaced car with luxery qualitys and low price!

Cons

Clutch easily ruined! It seems that Altimas have bad life span!

Booyah Car Nice Look, But Trickey Insides! — Nice on the outside crazy on the inside. This car has two different transmission makes it fun. Its around 19,000 to own brand new. Since it has split shift makes driving more exciting! But beware of whats under the hood!
