I bought this car right after it was released. I bought it because of its design. Exterior and interior designs, I love them. But I should have listen to people around me. No one recommended Nissan cars cus they break easily. After little over a month I bought this car, the break started squeaking, and over the time it got worst. I called the dealer and all they said was there is nothing they can do and it doesn't have any problems. Also, my side drawer or whatever its called, doesnt even open right. I have to hit it for it to open. I down paid too much, so trade in is kind of waste of money for me. It's drive-able so I still have this car, but I would never buy Nissan anymore. I can't wait to buy different car.
2012 Nissan AltimaJamor James - San Antonio, TX10/17/2015
This Altima has plenty of room and power. It's deceptively quick. Definitely a "sleeper ". Great performance and handling. Smooth engine and transmission.
I was originally going to buy an Infiniti G37, but after a test drive I decided to go with the larger Altima. It has more interior room and looks very sporty.
Even though it's rated at 270 horsepower(vs 328 in the G37) it's just as quick. The only thing that I don't like so far are the cheap Nexen all-season tires it came with. They are good for normal driving, but definitely not great for the performance this car has.
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..
