Purchased As New
I bought my 2010 Altima 3.5 SR August 8, 2010. I looked at and test drove many new cars before buying this one.I was looking for a sedan with a V-6, black on black and no options.Hard to find one like that. The Altima 3.5 SR is well equipped without options. It has all power[including a power drivers seat], tilt, cruise, and a nice, leather wrapped steering wheel. The driver has a very comfortable seat. In the time that I have owned it,[18 months & 11,400 miles], no warranty work. I repeat, no apparent defects. I am 58 and have owned a lot of new vehicles. This is my first to never go back to the dealer to fix a manufacturing defect! The 3.5 SR is a fast, powerful sedan. The 270 h.p. engine revs willingly and effortlessly well beyond the posted speed limit. The Altima 3.5 SR is fine around town, but really excels on the highway. The only drawback is an occasional muted kick thru the suspension [I took off 1 point from comfort for that reason; could've been a half point]. The exhaust has a nice sound, as does the engine. Neither are intrusive In fact, the Altima is fairly quiet, much quieter than a Honda Accord! M.P.G. for me averages around 24. 19 in the city, 27-28 at a steady70 mph. I am happy with the mpg. It has been better than I thought it would be. The dashboard is nicely laid out; the controls are easy to use. Visability to the front is very good/excellant. Visability to the sides is good, but the rear vis. is only fair. Backing up is a guessing game; the backup camera would be nice. The rear camera is only available as part of an expensive option package, though. The CVT[automatic transmission], takes some getting used to. It has a 10 year, 120,000 mile full warranty though, which is better than most cars. To sum up: Performance, Reliability, Fun to drive, Value more than compensate for the Altimas [few] shortcomings.
