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.
The long wheel base provides a great smooth ride and the CVA transmission helps you get where you want for less. The interior is wide open and will contribute to your level of happiness every time you get in. 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.
One of the best!
2011 Nissan AltimaTodd Waters - Colorado Springs, CO05/13/2015
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. 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.
