Best Car in it's Class!

2008 Nissan Altima Mr HipHop - Indianapolis, IN 10/07/2008

I love this car! This is my second Altima (I had a 2006 2.5 Special Edition before this one) and I am still loving it more every day. When compared to everything else in its class and price range, the Altima wins hands down. With all the standard features that you get on this car, such as the push button start, Intelligent Key, and aux input, this car feels like a car that costs 10K+ more! The engine is great, and it really gets moving without much effort.

Wouldnt buy it if i were you.

2008 Nissan Altima Roger - Miami, FL 02/13/2009

I bought this car 08/10/08 , i thought it was a great car,i looked at it it was sleek, a head turner, 2 months into buyinmg the car the automatic window locks would malfunction and the window would not go up, Its a noicey ride, you hear the road and everything around you, at high speeds the passangers seat would move and the saet belt would hit the side panel and make noise, honestly I wouldnt not recomend this car to anyone. G37 would be the way to go, or if thats out of your price range an 06 G35 body, cheaper and it has leather. better engine with mroe hp.

Very Reliable! Would recommend as first car

2008 Nissan Altima Jordan T - Atlanta, GA 03/27/2016

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

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.
