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.
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.
Comfortable and trouble-free
Pros: power seat
Cons: engine powerThis car has been trouble-free and quite economical to drive and own. It is most comfortable on long trips. I recommend it to all.
Not inspiring but reliable
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: Rattles and brakesGood ride but lots of rattles. Good gas mileage with the 4 cylinder but not very responsive. Not a big fan of the CVT transmission. It is smooth but slow off the line. Be careful pulling into traffic. Roomy inside with a large trunk. Nice feel to most interior materials. Brakes are not good. They are very touchy and noisy. I have had the pads replaced twice in 25k miles. Key fob is kind of annoying because it is constantly setting off the alarm or rolling down the windows or unlocking the doors. I guess it's because of kneeling down and putting pressure on it when it's in my pocket. Paint has several rock chips for a car that sees little hwy miles. Not sure if the paint is thin or of poor quality or maybe I'm just unlucky. Would not but again.
Pros: cruise control
Cons: vent system floor vents could be better. passenger seat is not as comfortable as driver seat, and I think that can also be improved.Very dependable 7 years of no headaches
