Good while it lasted... by Jonny on 09/14/2011. Trim: 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S Coupe, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Very comfortable, handles well, real sharp looking, decent sound system, love the factory AUX input for MP3 players
Cons: Electrically, the car had a mind of its own. Heater controls would work when they felt like it, I'd get brake warning lights randomly when there was nothing wrong with them (plenty of pad left, fluid filled properly, all sensors working - verified with a scanner on a test drive). Gas mileage was mediocre for a smaller car with a 4-cylinder. The CVT was awful! You had to manually shift it when yielding onto the highway just to be able to use engine to its potential.
Overall review: This car was bought with with fun and economy in mind. I did see 30mpg on a few occasions, but not commonly. It's a sharp looking car for sure, but for the lack of performance and quality for the money these cars demand new, I would never recommmend it. When the electrical issues finally wore my patience out, it was traded in.
