    It Is A Wonderful Car To Drive! — I really liked the fact that I have not had any major problems with it. I have not had to change the transmission. To the best of my knowledge the only things that I have replaced are the brakes, tires, and front bumper.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I love the CVT transmission.  You can not hear or feel the gears shift.  This makes for a smooth and pleasant driving experience.

    Cons: I am currently paying $400 per month for the car.  I have a goal of opening my own business.  That $400 can go to the start up costs for the business.  Another con is that it costs over $50 to fill up the tank at the pump.  It takes 87 unleaded gas.

    I Love This Car. One Of The Besti I Have Ever Owned So Far — My 2008 Altima was my first experience with Nissan and it has been a great one. So good in fact that I feel comfortable with my teenage son in this car as I am in need of an SUV. The car is quiet, has great acceleration and braking, comfortable and i average 23-25 mpg in mid size city driving, 26-28 highway. If the newer models have this amazing foundation and even newer technology....it is a real winner.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nearly everything. This is just a great well made fun car. Great on gas, no mechanical issues, fun to drive.

    Cons: Trunk has limited space with the design and indentations that take up room. Also i have had challenges with a blind spot on right side (5'4") even when i have the front seat lifted to maximum height (nice feature on driver seat for shorter people by the way).

    A Great Dependable Clean Used Car With No Problems — The CVT transmission is great because you never feel a shift as you accelerate. Push button start is great because you just leave your keys in your pocket at all times. It has great fuel economy with a I4 automatic transmission.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great gas mileage ave 28 city/ 37 hwy

    Cons: feels very small if on a long trip

    This Is A Outstanding Car That I Would Keep, But I Have Two Other Cars Already. — Incredible gas mileage 25(City)/32(Hwy). Extra large trunk. Fold down 50/50 seat backs provide extra storage for long items in trunk. Plenty of leg room in the front and back seats. New tires. Extra car from divorce. Priced to sell.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Incredible gas mileage 25(City)/32(Hwy).   Lots of storage space.

    Cons: Side mirrors must be adjusted correctly to avoid blind spots.

    The Wise Choice — acceptional car. One of the most reliable cars and saves you money. No regrets. Went from a 2008 BMW 328xi coupe, to 2008 Nisaan Altima. Best choice. Plenty of power. The body style is pretty cool. Deffenetly a great buy.

    Pros: Comfortablity

    Awesome-highly Recomend It For The Price — CVT Transmission is the perfect combo for any mood Interior- Black leather is sharp and extremely comfortable Exterior- has a really sporty look for a sedan and the dual tailpipes makes the rear end Very sporty for a four door sedan-I love this car perfect daily driver The push start button and keyless fob makes this a perfect combo Epic for a 4 cylinder-very fun to drive and great gas mileage

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort, Look, Sporty, and just clean

    Cons: None

    Love It — Love it - 4 cylinder with plenty of torque because of the electric motors, gorgeous leather interior with touch screen navigation, 28-32 MPG overall (depending on how aggressive I drive) - fun, sporty, luxurious car! (My first "nice car") - Love it

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Good Family Vehicle. — Performance is mediocre. It is an Altima after all. Quality is top notch. The interior is comfortable. The Exterior is good looking. Great gas mileage when on road trips. Easy on maintenance, except tires. New tires can be a bit pricey. The fun factor is like a 3 out of 5.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Gas mileage, room and trunk space, easy to drive.

    Cons: The 2.5 Liter 4-cyl isn't performance oriented...Go for the 3.5 Liter 6-cyl if you want performance.

    Great Car, Great Price, Too Bad They No Longer Produce The 4 Door In A 6 Speed. — Great car! great price, great value. 6 speed with a 270 HP 6 cyl! What could be better. Glad to have it, sleek design, great room. Can hold a lot of cargo, love the moon roof and the rear spoiler. Why doesn't anyone make a decent sport wagon in a manual transmission anymore????

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Really quick, build well.

    Cons: You want the best gas mileage
