Altima is great
Pros: space in the car is great
Cons: sometimes the powerI have a Lexus Convert, but I love to drive my charming little Altima. Just one nice ride, can hole lots of stuff
Pleased as punch.
Pros: CVT trans is a really smooth operator.
Cons: What's not to like?Traded 2009 Accord EXL-V6 for this 2009 2.5SL and never more pleased with that decision. Altima is much better handling, has smoother ride and surprisingly peppy performance. Seats offer more comfort than Honda IMO. Overall, performance, ride and handling comes fairly close to that I experienced with my 1999 Lexus LS400. I love it!
Solid, good for the money
Pros: Styling, power, brakes, mileage, handling on curves
Cons: could be little quieterHad car 6 months and 7,000 miles, so still pretty new. On trip of 3300 miles to Florida got 32 mpg and no problems at all. Not as quiet as my Camry, but holds road well and feels secure at 70+ mph. Very good brakes, and powerful for a 4 cyl.
Pros: CVT, Mileage 27 city/45 hwy (I also amazed to see that when I reached FL in half tank)
Cons: Road and AC noise, which won't make your ride too quite.
Advice: Get it with full 2.5 SL adn other add-ons, you won't need to have any costly luxury cars.Wow! It was really a smooth drive and had never feel gear change due to its CVT. Even at speed between 40-45 RPMs are below 1500. Nice comfortable drive with whole family. Love it.
