    You Definitely Get More Than You Paid For — Excellent mid size sedan to use for business and private purpose, not the best looking kid in the block but definitely one of the most comfortable vehicles, add a really low price to it and you got yourself a very good deal. It's not fun to drive, it's a family car and it very reliable, the ride is very smooth and you are in complete control.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: gas milage, very comfortable, very reliable, low maintenance cost, very easy to drive

    Cons: not the best looking car out there

    Nice Car — i like it has good gas mileage and very comfortable. the back up monitor is a bit small. the tech is not as nice as newer models. being a 4 cylinder it is not as peppy as say, a 6 cylinder. overall good reliable transportation for now.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: seats five comfortably. quiet. good gas mileage

    Cons: a bit pricey   bland look  a bit outdated

    Very Spacious Car With Great Handling And Mileage — Great car in general. I love the exterior shape of the car, lovely curves. Very spacious car with great handling and mileage. Best mileage in class. Though I can't hear any engine noise from inside the car, I have seen better engines from Toyota or Honda.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great features and handling. Very spacious. Excellent mileage

    Cons: Toyota has a much smoother and powerful engine.

    Comfortable, Convenient, Classy Looking Car — I loved the appearance and convenience of this car especially the Intelli Key with push button start and other automatic features. I found it offered great gas mileage for its size. Steering and handling is smooth. A very reliable car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable nice looking, loved intelli key, good gas mileage for mid-size sedan

    Cons: Slower to accelerate at highway speed, CVT took a little getting used to

    Great Car! — Needed a truck. This car gave me no problems what - so-ever. Would recommend it to anyone. Great mpg and lots of room in the trunk! The bluetooth is nice and the lights under the car that light up to see is great. I really like the no key push button start.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great mpg and love all the extra features.  Very roomy.

    Cons: None.

    Good Family Car — My Nissan Altima is great on gas, good pick up for a four cylinder, quiet and comfortable ride. Transmission noise took some getting used to but still has good power. Front seat are very comfortable, continental tires make for a smooth quiet ride.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: GREAT GAS MILAGE

    Cons: SMALL BACK SEAT

    Easy To Use, Convenient — It's so nice to be able to keep your key in your pocket so you can use both hands to carry everything you need to. The buttons on the door handles lock and unlock the car as long as your key is in your pocket, then you jump in the car and it has a push button start, so easy to just go and not look for keys all the time, plus it's great on gas and has a lot of power so you don't compromise power for economy you get both with this car. It also has a lot interior space...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 4 cylinder engine has tons of power and great gas mileage, plus it drives super nice

    Cons: none

    Comfortable — This is a nice comfortable car. The seats are good for long drives, and the back seats have good legroom. Fuel economy is good. This car feels bigger, in a good way, than it looks from the outside. Handling and braking are good. The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is a feels strange if you are used to a traditional automatic. I am sometimes surprised how the speed sneaks up on you while you are waiting for the engine to speed up. Handling in snow was adequate.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfort, reliability, fuel economy

    Cons: CVT

    Very Nice, Dependable, Well Made, And Fast Vehicle. — It's a great looking sporty sedan, perfect to haul kids or use as a business car. This is the V6 model, which could get a bit better gas mileage, but at 25 mpg is still decent. It is a very powerful engine, more powerful than others in its class, but a bit thirstier as a result. It has a continuously variable transmission which is interesting to feel...it does not shift gears so when accelerating it's just one long high winding rev up to speed.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Most roomy mid-size sedan out there, with lots of headroom for tall people like me.  Was able to be ordered without a sunroof (which would've taken too much headroom away.

    Cons: The ride is sport-like but is almost caught in between a standard bouncy 4 cylinder sedan and a more sport-tuned suspension.  It's good but I would've preferred they went ahead and tuned it all the way toward a full sport sedan.  Still a very good ride though.

    Altima — I love this car. Great price for a great car. I love the push to start feature. This isn't really a family car. It's closer to a sports car and drinks gas like one. But overall I would suggest that you buy it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fast like a sports car.

    Cons: Uses a lot of gas.
