Altima — The car is decent. Nissan seems to really push the maint packages and they aren't cheep. The best thing about the car is the trunk space. Interior is small. There is no room for more than 2 kids in this car.

2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid — Great performance for a family sedan hybrid, 198 combined hp gets 50mpg combined, excellent build quality, all the features you need, excellent incentives for hybrids right now and in canada $6500 rebate for the car, not slugish when driving, picks up speed smoothly and quickly, I WOULD Buy this as my next car

5,000 Quality Tests Gives You The Best — Nissan invested a lot of time and money in this car and it shows, 4 cylinder engine paired with the CVT equals loads of power, this car takes off and doesn't stop until you let off. Quality is much better than the previous 3rd gen, you can feel the quality. Very quite even with the accelerator to the floor, lots of sound proofing for the cabin. fun to drive family sedan.

Good But Too Noisy Better Get The 3.5 It Wont Need To Work As Hard! — good on fuel on the hwy build quality is nice no rattles or road sounds while driving it, engine noise however is a different topic!! CVT keeps the revs too low to really enjoy and the manual mode is not really a manual mode. It has no gears and kinda feels like a really big go kart!
