Pros: easy to drive
Cons: wind when it whips upall around solid great for every day car
Pros: 'the fact that is a Hybrid
Cons: Lack of trunk space, the ONLY negative!Will probably hold onto this car as I average 35 to 40 mpg and that is a great savings on gas at todays prices.
Good for Single Family.
Cons: sizeGood for a single family just starting out.
Great Value for this Car!
Pros: Value and comfort
Cons: Trunk is a bit small, but I can work around it.This car is a great value. I traded in my 2004 Altima and purchased a 2010 Sentra. The Sentra handles the road very well. It is like a smaller version of the Altima in performance and handling on the road. It rides good and is comfortable for a small car. It is great on gas and is about $25 to fill up right now at the present gas prices. The car was not expensive, very affordable. Now, I have a new car and great value! Nissan delivers on dependability, comfort and reliability in both Altima and Sentra. I thought that I was not going to like trading down to a smaller car, but it certainly was a good choice. I really enjoy driving it and would highly recommend this car to anyone, particularly if you travel a lot and want to save on gas. Nissan cars a economical to drive because they can go a long time without costly repairs.
Best Car I've Ever Owned (of 15)
Pros: Great appearance
Cons: The paint chips or scratches easilyThe car is dependable, rides good and looks great. It has good power for a 4 cylinder. The interior is roomy, looks good, and has a quality feel to it. No glitches - everything still works fine after 5 years and 88,000 miles. Interior does not have a 'worn' look - still clean and colors crisp. The gas mileage is excellent. I usually average about 28 mpg or so, but If I nurse it I can get 30 mpg overall. On the highway, I get 34 mpg at 65, and 32 mpg at 70. My only complaint is the paint - it's a very thin skin - nicks easy and scratches easy. That's the only negative thing I can say about the car (that's why I gave only 4 stars for Quality). I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.
My First Nissan
Pros: The Leather Interior
Cons: The options are pricey!I purchased the 2010 Altima 2.5 SL in July and I have to admit it's a very well made car. I have about 4400 miles on it thus far and drove it on two road trips over this past summer. It's sporty fun to drive with good handling and gets very good gas milage which is a plus since I commute using I-95 to work each morning. Anyone who is on the fence deciding whether to purchase the Altima don't hesitate to take the plunge! You won't be dissapointed.
