    2007 Nissan Altima

    Wish I bought one years ago

    Pros: Great pick-up for a 4L engine

    Cons: Paint on rear bumper easily scratched

    Best car I ever owned - handling, parking, comfort excellent- plus keyless entry is standard.

    2009 Nissan Altima

    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!

    2007 Nissan Altima

    Super Comfortable and Best Nav Ever

    Pros: Comfortable, smooth ride and great nav system

    Cons: that you have to pay to update the nav system

    Our little Altima gets amazing gas mileage, has the CVT transmission which is very smooth, and has the best navigation system ever! My husband has vision problems, and the nav system has alleviated the stress of looking for freeway exits while negociating traffic. I highly recommend this car!

    2007 Nissan Altima

    Good looks and best in class mileage

    Pros: GPS

    Cons: Tire pressure sensing

    I got the 4 cylinder with every possible option. It was good value for the dollar. Has lots of power with 175 hp.

    2002 Nissan Altima

    Could use a bit more oomph

    Pros: Sound system (6-Disc changer), Lowness of ride, MPG

    Cons: Plastic materials, Acceleration on 2.5L

    Now, I must say that I have the 2.5L 4, so that is probably why the car takes a bit of time to merge with freeway traffic, but still, I find it annoying. Quality is great, especially the leather on the seats. Interior has a lot of plastic materials, some have broken off (cruise control button, latches on center compartments). Sound quality is amazing. I was considering installing subwoofers in the trunk - but Bose came through for me, showing off their great bass and sound quality. I will say, tho, that I would have liked to see an MP3 plug somewhere in the car. Overall, it is a reliable car. I average 24mpg, up to 31mpg on the freeway. Looks pretty smooth on outside. It is larger than its previous generation - which is always welcome. I bought mine used, but had I had a say in color choice, I would have picked a white, silver, or black - just to have more options in customization. I have the dark red.

    2009 Nissan Altima

    Solid, good for the money

    Pros: Styling, power, brakes, mileage, handling on curves

    Cons: could be little quieter

    Had 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.
