Great Fuel Savings, Nice Style , Small Truck — Excellent fuel mileage , more power than most Hybrids , has same 2.5 engine as non-Hybrid and electric engine makes it faster from 0-60 than the non-hybrids. Nice leather, the trunk is small but workable. Stylish looking and sporty with great handling.

Gas Saver! — I love the fact that the 18 gallon tank averages 530 miles! Also, it is super reliable and inexpensive to maintain! This car is extremely comfortable and great to drive around in! Super economic that is without a doubt! O

Great Size For A Sedan. Back And Front Are Roomy. — What we liked most about this car was that it is dependable, fuel efficient, roomy and stylish inside. We were able to use this car to commute to work and as a family car to fit 2 toddler car chairs comfortably in the back seats. And for a sedan, the trunk space is great...we were able to keep our double stroller the trunk. Overall a great purchase for the price and would definitely recommend this car to anyone. When gas prices were sky high we were so glad that we had this car as it gets such great gas mileage.

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 Altima Sedan 2.5s — Lot's of room both in the front seats and the back seats. It's quiet and it seems to be quick enough for anything that I might need. It comes off the ramps just like it should. I love the CVT. Seems to get great gas mileage. Some new info - 95,000 km - installing a new transmission next week. This seems a little bizare - covered by warranty which I undertand has been increased to 200,000 km or 10 years whichever comes first.
