Pros

It is ballin

Cons

none

Ballin — It is a great car. Front wheel drive, so it is good in the rain. The only thing i dont like about it that it has a cvt transmission which doesnt last too long and its not the best performing tranny. Average about 30 miles to gallon. Looks pretty good.

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

Nissan Altima — CVT is the greatest. Handles like a dream. Performance is awesome. Build quality is solid. Appearance is excellent. Gas mileage is good unless you punch it. It is indeed a fun car to drive. Nissan power delivered, period! Nissan = Quality.

Gas Mileage

Don't Regret The Purchase — It's a four-door sedan, but has the body of a coupe. The roof line is completely curved. It's a FWD car, yes, but the handling and power are top notch. Gas mileage is a definite setback, but worth it, in my opinion.

New Car Love!! — Just bought the '08 Altima 2.5S and I LOVE IT!!!! The interior is spacious,seats are comfortable,and the ride is super quiet. Handles great in rainy weather, and the Push button ignition with Intelligent key is so convenient (no more searching for the keys in my purse), which adds to the safety factor for me. It is a "sexy" car with superb acceleration, braking and overall handling. Gas Mileage is a plus, especially on the highway.

The Best Car Ever! — I love the fact that I can start it/unlock it/open the trunk without a key. Push button start rocks!
