I just purchased my car.. it was used of course 2010 had aobut 45k.. but so far I am so loving it. I had a small SUV before and I can really tell the difference in gas cost. The pickup is great, overall I am loving this car. Great value and should last me a long time.

Everything friend said it was

What a deal! I got my Altima S sedan for just under 18,000 new. I do a lot of highway driving, and routinely get around 36 mpg. Goes like a scalded dog when passing and merging. And has little touches the Malibu and Camry don't have, like cloth door panels instead of hard plastic. I agree with another reviewer that its a bit slow off the line. But, I didn't buy it to drag race. A friend told me the Altima was a great highway cruiser, and that is sooo true. And, for about 1500 in the accessory shop, I will have a 19,500 car with fog lights, rims, and stereo with usb, satellite, aux, and nav that would have cost me close to 25,000 in a chevy or toyota or honda. It took me over 30 years, but I finally came back to Nissan.

Nissan Altima

It has been just over two months that I have been driving 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S. I do not commute to work every day in this car. I had Altima before and went for another one. The CVT system has made it a smooth ride. Driving this car gives me a good sense of safety and comfort. However, the weak feature of this car is the 'not good quality cover' of the seat covers. It may soon wear out just like that though every one has liked the exterior. I like it being roomy and it has a large trunk. And the fact that the seats can fold 60-40. I have driven this car on Hways, but have yet to see driving higher than 28.5 miles per gallon. I wonder if it would ever achieve 34 miles per gallon on Highways as promised. Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone.

I wanted something reliable that got good mileage and had enough storage room for a family of three to make frequent interstate trips. Also, my husband is 6'5", which presents its own challenge. The Altima is comfortable for both of us to drive, all of us to ride in, and it's plenty zippy for the mileage. I love it.

purchased car used 35,300 miles. We have driven the car for a month now. have had no trouble with the car. excellent mpg. This is our first Nissan purchase. We will purchase another Nissan. The interior led lighting on the gauges is an excellent touch, keeps me from speeding. once inside the vehicle and a look around you see all the curtain side air bags on the passenger and driver sides and you know you are in a Safe Vehicle.

Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

I bought the 2.5 SL 175 Horse power I4 with luxury package. It has plenty of power and better pickup than other No.1 Jap family sedan. Sport suspension is just tight enough to give great cornering without feeling too harsh. The leather seats come with lumbar support which I really needed. The seats are very comfortable. The CVT transmission is unique, you don't feel gear changes. The best thing is it gives very good mileage even in suburban driving on local roads ~25 mpg with no freeway miles and touching 37 mpg on pure freeway. Cons: the CVT transmission doesn't like if you push the pedal to the metal at starting. it kind of hesitates but above 20 mph, it responds really well. Nissan sells extras in big packages and you end up getting things you may not need like sunroof if you want leather seats. I switched to Altima after driving 10 years the other N0.1 Japanese auto, and after 2000 miles love it.

I can't get enough of this car!

I owned a 2008 Nissan Sentra previously and wanted something with more room and comfort. I test drove an Altima S with the 2.5. I was impressed at how smooth this car drove and handled as well as the power produced from a 4 cylinder motor. I drive 65 miles per day with slight grades thoughout and found that the motor doesn't labor a bit on the open road and has plenty of power when passing. I have the all black interior which is like climbing into a Stealth Fighter. I can't think of anything I don't like about this car.

Super smooth ride!

by from Yonkers auto mall on December 27, 2012

Great experience at cars.com. The site narrowed my search to the car I wanted, price I needed, and mileage I wanted.

I've had my new Altima 2.5S for a week now and love this car. For the price, the other brands can't match what you get with the Altima. The styling is great. Outside is classy and sharp while the inside is functional and comfortable. The 175 hp I-4 provides plenty of pep when you need it (a little slow of the line, but responds well for merging, etc.). The CVT transmission is like no transmission I've ever had. It provides for a very smooth ride, you can't even feel it shift. Switching to the manual mode provides a chance to drive a grocery getter more like a sports car. I was very loyal to another brand before, but will always look at Nissan first now after owning this car.

Got myself a third Altima and I am a ahppy customer again. I had 2001 (my daughter drives today), 2007 (my wife totaled this winter) and my latest 2010. Bough it used with 30k miles from rental company and had no issues thus far. I get 32.4 MPG according Nissan computer, admittedly mostly highway driving (40.8 MPH awg on computer).
