Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.583 reviews) I was stuck last Saturday in Churchville Md. In a snow storm. Took I95 to White Marsh exit, took 3 hours. All sorts of card stranded, sliding, having trouble up hills. I was able to get home safely in my Altima. It performed much better than the BMWs and Infinitis I passed. This was y first time driving my new car in these conditions. I was very happy to have been driving it. I had my two year old grandson and my daughterinlaw in car. She told me later that she was impressed with the cars handling. The traction control kicked in many times, but we were safe.

About The Nissan Altima

Vehicle Summary

The Nissan Altima is a midsized sedan that has stood the test of time. The Altima has been in production since 1993, and has remained popular with drivers because of its comfortable interior, sleek design, and fuel economy (an EPA-estimated 32 miles per gallon combined on the 2019 base model Altima with the 2.5L four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive).1 All of these perks make it a popular commuter car. 

The fifth-generation Nissan Altima launched in 2013 and ran until 2018. During the 2019 model year Nissan completely redesigned the Altima, and launched the sixth generation, which introduced optional all-wheel drive. 

The fifth-generation Altima offers up to 270-horsepower with an optional V6 engine, delivering enough power for drivers who want speed and performance. 

A mid-generation refresh in the 2016 model year introduced upgraded steering, suspension and transmission, so drivers looking to maximize performance should focus on this model or later.

  • S: For years 2013–2017, the S introduces features most drivers would expect, like cruise control, automatic headlights and a USB port. On 2018 and 2019 models the S is the base option, but comes laden with features including a six-speaker sound system, a touchscreen display, Bluetooth® and keyless entry.

Nissan Altima Vs. Other Midsized Cars

If you're considering a used Nissan Altima, you may want to compare it to other midsized cars including the Nissan Maxima, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Here is how the 2018 Nissan Altima compares to the 2018 models of the Maxima, Camry and Accord. 

Altima vs. Maxima: The Maxima is Nissan's more powerful and upscale sedan. It comes standard with a 300-horsepower V6 engine (a 270-horsepower V6 is an available option on the Altima in model years 2018 and earlier). 

While the 2018 Maxima is tuned for performance, the Altima is better for budget-conscious shoppers. The 2018 Altima has higher fuel economy with the base 2.5L four-cylinder engine (an EPA-estimated 31 MPG combined), although fuel economy is comparable when both sedans are equipped with a V6 (the Altima with a V6 gets an EPA-estimated combined 26 MPG, compared with the EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the Maxima1).1 

Altima vs. Camry: The Toyota Camry is a popular sedan because it has good fuel economy (an EPA-estimated combined 34 MPG on the base-level 2018 model, which comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine1) and standard features including lane departure alert and adaptive cruise control. 

The 2018 Camry's base 203-horsepower engine is more powerful than the Altima's base engine (179 horsepower), and although both cars offer an available V6 upgrade, the Camry's V6 has higher horsepower (301 horsepower, versus 270 in the Altima). 

The 2018 Camry offers two more inches of rear leg room (38 inches, compared with 36 in the Altima), while the 2018 Altima offers about one cubic foot of additional cargo space in the trunk (14.1 cubic feet in the base level Camry, versus 15.4 cubic feet in the Altima). 

Altima vs. Accord: The 2018 Honda Accord offers more space than the 2018 Nissan Altima, with 40 inches of rear leg room (compared with 36 in the Altima) and additional cargo space in the trunk (16.7 cubic feet in the Accord, versus 15.4 in the Altima). 

The cars are comparable when it comes to fuel economy: the 2018 base-level 1.5L Accord gets an EPA-estimated 33 MPG combined, compared to 31 in the base level 2.5L Altima (2018 model).1 The 2018 Accord comes with standard features like dual-zone climate control that are only available on higher level trims of the Altima. 

1 Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates when vehicles sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See fueleconomy.gov for details.

Love this car and CarMax

It handles really well. I feel very safe in it. Did my research. It's at top of the line for mid size cars. Also Car Max has excellent customer service. Every question was answered and I was never pushed into buying the car. I was giving plenty of time to make the decision.

Very Reliable! Would recommend as first car

I've had this car since 2009 and I did not any major problems until I hit 150,000 miles. I forgot what I was supposed to fix but it was around 1,400. I never went and got it fixed because it was a direct result of me never getting a tune up or oil changes on time
