Great car to drive
Pros: Gas milage
Cons: No option for passenger power seatI have the Hybrid and love the gas milage I get. I live in Orange County and can go roundtrip to San Diego on a quarter of a tank of gas.
Pros: Sound system
Cons: No tinted windowsI really like this car just want something bigger
Love everything except the engine noise
Cons: Engine noiseGreat car and amenities! Nav, leather, heated seats, rear view camera, great gas mileage! But, the engine sounds like a sewing machine under 1600 rpms. Dealers have all said this is 'normal'..but never heard a 4 cyl engine like this in a Mazda 3 or Ford Fusion.
Wish I bought one years ago
Pros: Great pick-up for a 4L engine
Cons: Paint on rear bumper easily scratchedBest car I ever owned - handling, parking, comfort excellent- plus keyless entry is standard.
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!
Super Comfortable and Best Nav Ever
Pros: Comfortable, smooth ride and great nav system
Cons: that you have to pay to update the nav systemOur 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!
