By Far The Most Well Rounded Midsizer From The Japanese. Definately One Of The Best. — This is the facelifted 4th generation Nissan Altima for 2010. At first glance you know you are looking at something that is intriguingly different from its more dull and conservative Japanese offerings from Toyota, Honda and Mitsubishi in the heavily competitive mid-size market. It really does look good with modern lines and curves and a swooping roofline all the way down to the rear to give it that coupe look ending with rocketship looking tailights and twin exhausts that will definitely make it go unnoticed. This is the 2.5l 4-cylinder S model and it comes with an excellent 180 hp 4-cylinder engine. 0 - 60 mph takes just over 8 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 124 mph. Fuel consumption is an adequate 31 mpg. This particular car is equipped with a 6 speed manual transmission although a silly CVT auto is also offered. Inside you get loads of space with plenty of legroom and comfortable seats and a stylish but well made dash with a nice, warm and welcoming orange glow when the controls are lit up at night. The car offers great value for money compared to its rivals in terms of kit with cruise control, ABS, stability control and four airbags being offered as standard. Also included are a trip computer, tire pressure moniter, remote keyless entry and starter button. Options inlcude: Fog lamps, reverse sensors, folding electric mirrors, mud guards, rear spoiler and alloy wheels and many more. Luggage space is large with rear seats that fold down for even more space. On the road the car is great to drive with the perfect balance of being both a cruiser and a drivers car. Ride quality is excellent although a little harsh in some cases due to the firm suspension setup but road grip is superb with little understeer at the limit. The steering is responsive but unfortunately too soft and numb which does not make it a proper drivers car like the Mazda 6 but does not affect the fun factor in the overall driving experience. To conclude, the Nissan Altima is an excellent car for those wanting a car that is comfortable, stylish, well made and great fun to drive that is also loaded with kit and offers great value for money. Hats off to Nissan for a job well done.

Perfect For A Small Family — I love the gas mileage and reliability of the car. My only dislike is that while the trunk space is huge, I need more space which is why I'm selling. This is the ONLY reason I'm selling. I truely love This car.

It's Fun Modding It Out So Far. — This car is sleek and fast. CVT shifting is smooth, good gas mileage. Of course I am redoing alot right now. New custom system, NISMO catback exhaust, Eibach lowering springs, MKT hYper Black 18" rims, 20 percent Sunblock Tint, Rear Light Tint, HID Lights low at 6000 and fog at 3000. More to come. Great first car for my venture into the faster sedan world. Interior a tad boring, but I will fix that with some custom upholstery work adn carbon fiber accents. Lovin it so far!

Best Deal — Awesome car from my perspective. I would love to recommend to any one on this planet. It can be used as a family car as well as a sports car for a bachelor. Fuel efficiency of this car is also good, looks wise is quite good but the interior and the options in it are just too good.

I Like It! — i think its the best car ive driven (because its about the only one, lol) performance- 4 cyl. engine so good fuel economy with about 175 hp. its ok build quality - plastics mean its not too hard but the plastics are nice and firm appearance - nice curving lines, but headlights could be improved with more sharp edges cost stuff - idk really... fun factor - oh yeah, aluminum chasis is so good and the suspension is good too

Stylish, great mpg, performance is acceptable

Cons

Hybrid technology takes up a huge amount of trunk space and has some occational mechanical quirks.

I'd Be Happier With The Non-hybrid Altima Coupe With Manual Transmission. — It is hard to be specific because I only drive it periodically. Acceleration is quick when in electric mode and seems to be nearly as responsive when it is not in EV mode. It's a new car so braking is good and handling is nice, a little stiff. I think with all of the hybrid technology this car has some wierd quirks and does wierd things from time to time. Nice looking car inside and out, comfort is acceptable, but I think my Accord has a more comfortable seat. Cheap on gas, nothing has come up yet for repairs since it's new. It is fun to drive. I'd like to have the opportunity to thrash on it a little some time to see how it really performs.

Best Affordable Performance Family Sedan — I bought this car without a test drive (due to my location) simply by comparing to every other mid-size. So happy with my choice. It has 60K on it and has been everything I asked for. The only issue is the key fob. It has four buttons, all the same height, so the alarm will trip by just bumping it. What a pain! Regardless, I wholeheartedly recommend this car.

Awesome, Affordable, Reliable Family Car — The Altima has been around a long time and has improved in technology, ride, styling and safety every year. Just look around as you drive and you will now notice just how many are on the road. We are buying a new Altima based on the past performance our 2010 and Consumer Reports reliability ratings. The Accord and Camry are also nice cars, at a much high price.

CVT Transmission, Fake wood interior,orange lighting

Nissan Needs To Improve On Fit And Finish For There Cars. — I hate the CVT Transmission, Hate the fake wood in the interior. Dont like the orange lighting, materials inside feel a bit cheap for a $32,000 car, flimsy plastic, leather is too firm, steering is too soft,dont really like the driving position, doors lock automatically when u start to drive, engine compartment is all plastic!!! Although....... 0-60 is a whole second faster than my accord, (8.4 vs. 9.3) the engine in the altima is also larger than the accords engine,but it's less powerful. When you launch the car to 60mph or so, the engine has a noticable amount of torque on take off. the engine holds the car at about 6500rpm or so until top speed which is limited to 110mph(sadly) or until you take your foot off the gas. Transmission is also responsive at 60mph as well. The car is actually pretty fast for its size,and engine displacement. Car also comes with manual mode, which lets you drive the car as you would with a manual, except there is no clutch. Manual mode is quite confusing though, because the computer in the car will not let it redline when u shift, so what happens is the car will let 1st "gear" take you up to 60mph, so if you dont know what you are doing it may get boring and confusing very quickly.Also I used to own a $22,000 camry, and that had better quality on the interior than this $32,000 altima!!! Car comes with chromed dual exhaust as well.Some nice features on the car besides that such as, leather wrapped steering well,power sunroof, audio controls on steering wheel, leather wrapped shifter, and traction control,as well as VDC.
