Pros

Great fuel economy, awesome daily-driver, CVT transmission ensures good fuel economy and also packs a punch to quick speed when needed.

Cons

The 4th generations Altima is not as comfortable and sporty as its predecessor, 3rd generation which have owned two ( a 2003 and 2005 model). The front seats do not have the bucket-seat feel, overall interior for the driver is just not appealing. Has a serious blind spot at real right when looking to back up, assuming your are driving a Left had Drive (US vehicle)

Simple Reliable Daily-driver, Ut Dont Expect Much If You Love Your Autos. — This vehicle would have benefited greatly from a more refined interior. I suppose the 2.5 S model is not going to come with all the bells and whistles, however, from a design stance, its rather plain-Jane. . The 4th generations Altima is not as comfortable and sporty as its predecessor, 3rd generation which have owned two ( a 2003 and 2005 model). Coming from a 2009 Toyota Camry to the 2011 Altima for a daily business commuter feels like a serious downgrade in from business class to coach. So, I will keep it, but will trade soon enough. The 4 Cylinder Altima is also notorious for failed Catalytic converter at higher mileage, so that's another reason to get rid of it after a while, even though I have low mileage. Needless to say, you see them all over, so they had to have been engineered for mass selling. Simple reliable vehicle.

Pros

Styling is a definite plus as is the reliability factor.  I've only had to have normal maintenance done on this car...oil changes, brakes..that's it.

Cons

Just not roomy enough for older kids (mine are 15, 13 and 11) and all their belongings...backpacks, laptop bags, etc.

Stylish, Sporty And Reliable — I love the styling of this car, inside and out. You just cannot beat the price for such a nice looking car that also has a sporty feel. I really like everything about this car and will hate to see it go. If it were a bit roomier inside, I'd keep it for years to come.

Best Decision Ever — it fits my needs perfectly while also staying within my budget :) The sound system is amazing it is so clear. We recently took a family vacation in it i was sooo impressed with the fuel mileage & overall ride comfort the seats didnt hurt my back i have plenty of leg room no complaints. I bought at Newton Nissan South in Shelbyville from a lady named Grace she was perfect & listened to everything I said.

Sleek Beautiful Superior Nissan Design And Luxury — Great for a family of 4 or single driver! Handling is smooth and acceleration is powerful enough you would never know it is a 4 cyl. Great variable transmission provides unique driving experience. The music box system is a nice finish for entertainment lovers like me!

Made For A Great Rental Experience — I rented this car and drove it over a week around the Chicago area and then the 3 hours back and forth to South Bend, IN. Overall, was very pleased. It accelerated well on the highway and had a good turning radius getting into parking spots. The trunk was roomy, no problem fitting our bags. The air conditioning worked fast which was important because it was in the 90s. I also really came to like the keyless ignition (though it was confusing sometimes when I had the key and my wife was driving when I would get out of the car). Got good gas mileage too, only using a tank over the course of the whole week of pretty heavy driving.

2011 Nissan Altima — This is an all around great car. Impressive styling, handling, mpg, and comfort. The keyless entry and keyless starting button are very innovative. Full power on everything and it includes a 6 speaker stereo standard. This car has it all and then some!
