Loving it, Sweet Ride

I've only had the car a short time but it is a real nice ride. Great features for a real reasonable price. Sporty looking for a 4 door sadan. Going to work on 2 lane hilly country roads I'm getting 29 to 30 miles to the gallan. The 2.5S has more getty up than my 6 cylinder. Passed a car and hit 80 MPH like it was nothing. Very happy with the quality of my 2012 Altama.

V-6 Altima Coupe

by from WA on January 19, 2012

Excellent handling and pickup. Quiet at all speeds. Great road feel. The only thing lacking is an all wheel drive option. To get that you have to go to the Infiniti G-37 that is an additional $14,000....
Excellent handling and pickup. Quiet at all speeds. Great road feel. The only thing lacking is an all wheel drive option. To get that you have to go to the Infiniti G-37 that is an additional $14,000.00. The Altima Coupe V-6 is otherwise comparable, but don't buy this vehicle for its backseat or trunk.

Nissan=Never let you down

Just ask yourself, why do you always see these vehicles on the road? The price is right and the quality is great. This is my 5th Nissan 86.5 Sentra, 99 Maxima, 2003 Pathfinder, 2005 Altima, 2012 Altim...
Just ask yourself, why do you always see these vehicles on the road? The price is right and the quality is great. This is my 5th Nissan 86.5 Sentra, 99 Maxima, 2003 Pathfinder, 2005 Altima, 2012 Altima. I love the CVT transmission, no jerking just go. Still have not got use to listening to music and talking on the cell through the audio system. Nothing really special with features but I love the lights underneath my vehicle at night when you open the car door. When people vision this, I get asked did I install this feature aftermarket. Nope..But I want my third storage compartment back on the dashboard. I guess the temp readout, gas mileage, and the alarm replaces that feature. I can't wait to see the 2013. Happy Driving to all Nissan owners...

Very nice mid size car. Motor is smooth and the transmission is also smooth. No feeling of the gears changing unless you want to .. Spunky 4 cyl with great gas mileage I have not had before. Seats could be a bit softer. Handling is pretty firm for a midsize car around corners. Feels like it will last a long time..

Very good car

by from Columbia, MD on December 8, 2012

If I had the choice to do it over, I would still buy the same car. Quiet, comfortable, fuel efficient, and good looking. I only wish I had power seat.
