Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.626 reviews) Do not purchase this car. It has a steering lock failure that will cost you around $1000 to fix and will leave you stranded. When Nissan made the car they knew it was going to have this problem because they put it in the owners manual under Instruments and controls 2-13. I am currently fighting with Nissan to reimburse me for the expenses that it has cost me to get my car working again. I bought this car in hopes of having a reliable vehicle but it left me stranded as well as hundreds of other people as I researched this issue more on the internet.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.464 reviews) It has been trouble free and it is fun to drive. My previous car was a Crossfire, so it is a step downward in the fun department but it is a good compromise between fun an practical. It has a decent trunk, full size spare, and plenty of power with the 3.5 engine. The CVT transmission is very responsive, but not as fun as a six speed stick. I am not a front wheel drive kind of guy, but I must admit it is a real advantage in the snow and ice..

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) 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

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) I bought this car right after it was released. I bought it because of its design. Exterior and interior designs, I love them. But I should have listen to people around me. No one recommended Nissan cars cus they break easily. After little over a month I bought this car, the break started squeaking, and over the time it got worst. I called the dealer and all they said was there is nothing they can do and it doesn't have any problems. Also, my side drawer or whatever its called, doesnt even open right. I have to hit it for it to open. I down paid too much, so trade in is kind of waste of money for me. It's drive-able so I still have this car, but I would never buy Nissan anymore. I can't wait to buy different car.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.419 reviews) This car gets really good gas mileage, and is way roomier than it looks. Plenty of leg space in the back for tall people and plenty on horsepower, even though it's a 4 cylinder. Trunk is spacious and the hands free is easy to set up and works very well. The push to start feature is great and the valet key works like a charm to keep your possessions safe when car is being washed or driven by others.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Average Vehicle Review: (4.419 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.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.419 reviews) It's really a great car but there's a problem with the power steering pump that causes it to make a high pitched beeping noise at low speeds. So when you're stuck in traffic and the pump starts beeping and whining, it's enough to make you want to scream. Nissan dealerships refuse to fix it. Major disappointment.

Using it for a daily driver is great, the car handles the city streets and the open roads well and you don't feel stressed when driving.

I just hit 40,000 miles and started having issues with the tranny. The car jerks repeatedly in stop and go traffic. Small backseat compared to competition. Cvt is definitely an acquired taste.

It was a wonderful vehicle; completely reliable and has a high resale value. In fact, they depreciate slower than almost any comparable car out there. The Altima was reliable, smooth, fast, and worked beautifully. I would recommend this car to anyone and everyone! One caveat is that it isn't the best in the snow. However, with the right snow tires, it would drive very well.

I enjoy my commute more because this car is fun and zippy to drive. The Bose stereo is fantastic too. It�s not for families as the backseat is only good in a pinch, but if really needed you can get a couple of people squeezed in for a short drive. The trunk looks small but I�ve gotten a weeks worth of groceries for a family of four in it. I�m glad I purchased this vehicle!

Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) I almost passed this car by in my search. Am I glad I didn't. My heart wants a sports car. My family needed a practical car. This car is both. The v-6 is powerful, the handling responsive, the interior comfortable and secure feeling. The gas mileage is averaging just over 25 mpg with about 1/3 highway miles. And my lead foot. Is acceptable in snowy conditions, but isn't all wheel drive, so that's to be expected. Other car is a Mazda cx-5. My daughter calls that one zoom zoom. She calls my Altima vroom vroom. It is seriously a performance car hiding in a family car. Better than a 14 mustang v-6 convertible we rented on vacation as far as performance. And much more practical. I love it, only wish mine had premium audio.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) This Altima has plenty of room and power. It's deceptively quick. Definitely a "sleeper ". Great performance and handling. Smooth engine and transmission. I was originally going to buy an Infiniti G37, but after a test drive I decided to go with the larger Altima. It has more interior room and looks very sporty. Even though it's rated at 270 horsepower(vs 328 in the G37) it's just as quick. The only thing that I don't like so far are the cheap Nexen all-season tires it came with. They are good for normal driving, but definitely not great for the performance this car has.

I can share that my research has paid off and in the short time that I have owned my Altima I am really pleased.

Very reliable, but there are some safety concerns. The blind spots are terrible! You have to look triple time to make sure you can change lanes safely. There are no blind spot detectors installed on this vehicle. You sit very low and sometimes the side mirror actually obscures your view, as well as the pillar on the drivers side. The seats are basically "racing" seats, so not very comfortable.

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.

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.

One of the best!

I owned this car for three years. It was a wonderful vehicle; completely reliable and has a high resale value. In fact, they depreciate slower than almost any comparable car out there.
