Pros

I love the look of this car, its sporty yet luxury. Very comfortable in short or long trips, the backseat is very spacious for passengers. Maintenance pricing was very reasonable, I have not had to put this car in the shop unless it was for an oil change or brake change. Great on gas. First car I ever owned and I am very pleased with my choice!

Cons

You do have to keep it clean, due to it being a pearl white and dirt shows easily on it when up close. Other than that, there are really no cons when it comes to the Nissan Altimas.

All Around Great Car For Anyone! — I loved everything about this car! First car I ever owned and I have had it for 3 years now and never once did I have to put it in the shop unless it was for general maintenance (oil change brakes etc.)

Great Car — This is my second car, but the first car I have ever bought. I feel a though i made a great decision in purchasing this car as my first. The car has GREAT fuel economy which I was amazed with considering it is a bigger car. I came from a 1999 Lexus es300 so I was spoiled with luxury car qualities, and this car was the closest I came to matching it in a college students budget. It is very roomy and has fantastic acceleration. I also love a lot of the included features that come with the car. I bought the car used at 28,000 miles and it is now at 50,000 10 months later (I commute a lot to work). The only issues I have has so far with this car is I keep getting flat tires ( seven already) and my sunroof was not closing all the way which I had to get fixed. It is also a tad noisy with the sunroof feature and sounds like a wind tunnel inside. Other than that I think it is a great car and would recommend it to anyone.

Key Fob (Alarm Trips Easy)

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
