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.
Pros: Nissan Intelligent Key
Advice: If you've not considered this car yetThe test drive was incredible. I had so much fun playing with the manual mode that comes with the CVT transmission!! I thought how the steering wheel got 'harder' to turn the faster you go, is a great safety feature, because I sometimes find myself bouncing around the lane at fast speeds. The I-Key is fantastic, I wake up, put it in my pocket, and take it out when I get home at night. The car is fast, and gets great gas mileage. I live in central Pennsylvania where there's mountains, and not really JUST city or highway driving, and I average over 34 mpg. If you have a family, this is also a very safe vehicle. But, I like it for its look, speed, and handling :)
Pros: Smooth Ride
Cons: Body seems more malleable than should be
Advice: Please test drive few Nissans and consider space, style & experience!Just purchased my 2005 Altima 2.5SL...its HOT. Love the leather, the Bose system, the sunroof...the performance tires are so worth it! Going from 2002 Saturn SL1 to an Altima...is a ridiculous change up! It's BLISS! Drives well, great shocks/suspension, sounds great, & wow, do I get LOOKED AT while driving around !! Loving my new ride thusfar!!
