2008 Nissan Altima Soccer!! - Austin TX 03/16/2011

I went from a gas eater Hummer H3 to a Nissan Altima.. I love how smooth the car rides and how great it parks! I miss the off road experience but i love the Altima! Great MPG..... TRUST ME! And it will get up and go from a red light!:) No problems with the car! Cheap to fill up, even in hard times! I would recommend it to anyone who has kids or teens that play sports or to anyone on the go all the time!! THX:)

2008 Nissan Altima Ordinary Joe - Kansas City 04/07/2011

This car is excellent! I was in the situation that I needed to down size from a Ford Expedition. I have three kids and I am a large person. We all fit very comfortably in the car without any issues. The car is a wonderful ride, plenty of get-up-and-go. I really have fallen in love with the car and its features. I would recommend the car to anyone. Of course, the gas mileage is great compared to the Expedition!

2008 Nissan Altima Lilbkrbabe - MD 06/06/2011

This is the first car that I've gone thru rotars and brakes within 30k miles. The service tech informed me that this is normal for Nissan's which means I would not recommend this car for anyone who drives more than 12k/year. It's a good looking car, but replacing brakes and rotars can get very expensive.

2008 Nissan Altima Overview

The 2008 Nissan Altima has not changed much after its sleek, new redesign in 2007. With either of its engine options, the Altima is surprisingly quick and peppy in comparison to its rivals while still being fuel efficient. For those who appreciate crisp, responsive handling, the Altima excels.

Features & Specs

The Nissan Altima offers a wide range of features. It comes equipped with a full set of power accessories such as locks, windows and mirrors, as well as keyless entry and cruise control. Standard features in the 2008 Altima include air conditioning and an audio system with CD player. Higher trim levels offer upgraded sound systems, dual-zone climate control, power moonroof and voice-activated navigation system.

Design & Performance

The Altima is Nissan's midsize sedan with expertly-tuned suspension and quick steering. It underwent a redesign for the 2007 model year and the 2008 version is similar. The Nissan Altima has four different trim varieties: the base 2.5, the 2.5 S, the 3.5 SE and the 3.5 SL. The exterior difference between each trim level lies only in tires. Otherwise, the available options among trim levels are found in the interior.

Powertrain & Engine

Standard versions of the Altima are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. The 2008 Nissan Altima offers an upgraded 3.5L V6 engine under the hood, making it more powerful than its competitors in the same segment and model year. When the V6 is paired with the six-speed manual transmission, the vehicle feels sportier than expected. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is also available. No matter the transmission, fuel economy is nearly unchanged.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Interior styling was a primary focus of the 2007 Nissan Altima redesign. As a result, the 2008 Altima's cabin materials and design have improved significantly. The vehicle is spacious and has controls that integrate well into the 2008 Altima's array of features.
