    Best Family Car For The Money — Nice style, GREAT on gas, fun to drive. Save a lot don't buy the Accord first look at this car. Fun to drive, plenty of room for the family and a HUGE trunk,and if you need more room both rear seats fold down.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love the transmission, and GREAT on MPG. Can not go wrong with this car.
    To expensive much better off to buy a 2012 saves a lot of money.

    Cons: Could us a little bit more horsepower.

    Very Nice. Very Reliable, Very Comefortable, Smooth And Quiet. — It has nice looks, comefortable seating, nice ride, decent handling, fair price. The CVT transmission works very nice. There is no downshifting on hills. (well, actually there is but you can't tell it unless you watch the tach.) I would definitely consider buying another.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Nice car.  No problems at all so far.  Everything works as expected.  Nice ride.  Very comefortable and very quiet.  Only maintenance needed so far is to change oil on scheduled intervals.  Highly recommend.

    Cons: None.

    Wow — At this point I have found Nothing to Dislike about the 2012 Altima 2.5s and Everything to Love. I have 700 miles on it so lets wait and see what happens. I found these Forums very helpful in discovering Noises, and features.. The Dealership Cochran Nissan in Pittsburgh was really great, I went in only for a test drive of the Juke, and 3 hours later left with the Altima, Easiest Buying Experience of my life.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: What a Machine

    Cons: The Transmission takes a bit to get used to but when you do you start wondering How you ever got along without CVT

    Fun Car To Drive Plenty Of Power For All Situations If You Don't Need To Do Burnouts. — Car is really fun to drive and handles well.

Roomy and has some storage for you items in the center councle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sporty looking and has a nice sound system

    Cons: Car is light so not much traction in the winter

    You Don't Now What Your Missing — lots of power its like driving a nascar, still breaking it in bought in new so got to be gentle , the interior and exterior are amazing nice clean lines outside and lots of head room for us tall people. the gas mileage is amazing for a car of this size, if you in the market for a new car try the nissan altima its a blast to drive.
