Great vehicle for the price! This car is also a head-turner. It is sporty yet practical. You will not be sorry with the interior or the exterior. Very glad we purchased this one.
Car i've always wanted
2008 Nissan AltimaEddoxx - Memphis, TN11/29/2011
Okay, may not be my dream car, but for my budget right now, its the car i've always wanted. I'm happy with the car. However, its a bit longer then my old car (97 Audi A4) and so the turning-radius is not as good, something i'll get used too. Love the push to start, push to lock/unlock the doors. First week was really bad on gas, but after i bought one of those sea-foam gas cleaner liquids from AutoZone that are meant to make your car more fuel efficient, its doing really well on gas, i'm actually impressed. $55 - $65 to fill the tank. Drives really well, very modern feel and overall, i love the car and couldn't be happier!
Fantastic condition with low mileage, drove great.
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.
