- Love the leather, heated seats, navi, turn signal , comfort
- Different with the cvt, cant hear the gears shift, gas not getting th gas mileage as I wanted.
Great car overall. Love everything about it. The ride, the feels, great appearance. Gas wise...needs some time to kick in. If you add a intake it will improve it by by five to six miles per gallon . it really works. this car by far is better then accord and camry. had both nothing compares to the altima....read morehide

- great gas mileage, comfortable, easy to drive, great looking car.
we traded down my chevy trailblazer for our altima and it's the best decision we've ever made. the gas mileage is awesome. we average around 25mpg in town and about 30-35 or more on the highway. absolutely love this car! would recommend to anyone.

- keyless entry, bluetooth capatable, sleek look, leather seats with plenty of leg room
- noisy engine, 60mph + rear view and side view mirrors vibrate
love the look of this car. I had to give my son my old but fantastic 1997 lexus ES , I also had a 1993 altima which was terrific. This car seems to remind me of the lexus` body design. Runs smoothly. Only 2 complaints...noisy engine and mirrors that shake when you go past 60mph...curious to know if this happens to anyone else......read morehide

- Top of the line features like keyless entry/start, back up camera, bluetooth, Great looks
- Rough ride, Road noise, Center console squeaks
We considered the lexus IS very closely and ultimately decided to go with the Altima. Reason: It offered all the features at a more affordable price. Also has a bigger engine than the 250 but has an unrefined ride and high road noise.
The keyless entry and ignition is awesome. It may seem like an overkill when you dont have one but its so addictive. I wish my home door worked with the same key.
Navigation is good but can be better - biggest turn off is that it doesnt allow use when car is in motion even when there is a front passenger.
Music system is from bose and its awesome. Ours also has XM radio and we love it. Back up camera is also another very useful feature.
Bluetooth phone works okay as such but its the road noise which
makes it difficult for the other end to hear sometimes.
The mileage isnt that great but the power more than compensates for it!
The cabin is nicely designed and spacious but the centre console is plasticky and squeaks which is really irritating. I have had a two trips to the dealership with out a fix but they assured me next time it will be fix for sure.
The only other issue is that there is no batter run away protection so the car wouldnt start if left unattended for as little as 4 weeks. This happened to us when we went on a vacation last year.
Overall, Nissan is doing a great job on its cars and is raising the bar for standard features....read morehide

- CVT transmission is superb, great styling, Nav system is great!
- Road noise somewhat
Purchased in October '07 - I wanted a Lexus 350 (my husband talked me into the Altima) and I didn't drive it hardly for 3 months. I was upset about not getting the Lexus and my husband and kids teased me about being "afraid" to drive the new car. So around January I started driving it and couldn't believe what I had been missing out on! The ride is out of this world. I love the technology, and the Nav system is so user friendly! There is so much room in the back seat and I love the keyless entry and pushbutton start. I live in Florida so I just open the moonroof, blast my music and pretend I am 20 again!...read morehide

- I have 1500 miles on my 3.5 w/ sport package....great car...fast
- the placement of power outlets ...... that's all
I turned in my 05 CTS a few months ago (towards the end of the lease it became a real disappointment. This car is smooth, rides great, and is really quick. I think it's faster than my CTS which was only 255 HP.
If you get the 3.5 engine make sure you use super unleaded, you'll feel the difference....read morehide
