Good Car, Minor System Issues
I’ve own a 2020 Altima (under 30k miles) for a few months now, its my daily commuter, and I’ve made certain to take care of any issues and required maintenance such as oil changes and tire rotations. One thing I can say for certain about the 2020 Altima is that its definitely a good car for long to medium distance commuting. It gets above 30 mpg, has a Continuously Variable Transmission which makes keeping high speeds while traveling up hill far less intensive on the engine itself, and it makes for a smooth ride as you can’t even feel it shift unlike conventional geared transmissions. It has good handling, blindspots are not as terrible as I have seen, and the adjustments to seating and music give you just enough variety to let you feel at home without bogging you down with too many options. Those are the good parts. One problem out of a very small number of negatives is the Apple CarPlay. I am not certain if this is a natural thing with Apple CarPlay, but its not entirely reliable. Some days you need to turn the car off and on again to get it to work, or maybe your steering wheel buttons don’t work, or the standard Altima music bar sticks on top of CarPlay, or maybe for an entire day music plays out of only your back passenger speaker. The problems happen just frequently enough that when I drive a car with a much simpler music player, I find myself relieved. Now I like CarPlay. It allows me to use Google Maps in a very simple manner, and selecting music as well is not too difficult. I just wish it were more reliable
My third Altima , love this May del of Nissan
This model meets all my requirements of style comfort and reliability , as have the two Altima’s we have owned in the past . Would buy another, in the future !
Not worth what I paid and expected
I think for 20k which I paid, this car should be more durable. The tail pipe fell down and I had to get that fixed as well it sounds like my dashboard vibrates!! The engine is not as quiet as I would like either! I had it looked at and the mechanic said that is just how the Nissian Altima sounds. Wish I would have bought something else with that 20k!! The exterior and interior look nice but the car is cheap when it comes to durability and engine sound.
