The car looks nice, but it's overpriced for the problems it has. 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.
2012 Nissan AltimaJason S - Chicago, IL12/07/2015
After three months of researching vehicle reviews, statistics, and visits to dealerships and test drives I saved the Altima for last because it was the vehicle that I was considering the most, (color, 4cyl, leg and head room, and other accoutrements). I can share that my research has paid off and in the short time that I have owned my Altima I am really pleased.
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..
