Fast Fun Sounds Great

Cons

If you want to stand out

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!

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.

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.
