2010 Nissan AltimaClinton Hill - Columbus, GA03/25/2017
This car offers a lot of reliability while also being fun to drive. Though it is a coupe, I still have plenty of storage space for when I go camping or go grocery shopping. Oh and did I mention the fun? At around 270 hp this car has enough punch to make you sink into your seat a little when you rev up the engine on those open highways. The transmission shifts smooth as butter as well. When you put the power down in a turn (corner) you do experience some torque steer so that's something that heavy footed drivers will have to learn to mitigate. The suspension has a stiff racy feel, which can sometimes be a pain when driving over speed bumps, but this tight suspension is also what allows me to turn quickly and trust the car.
Very Reliable! Would recommend as first car
2008 Nissan AltimaJordan T - Atlanta, GA03/27/2016
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
2012 Nissan AltimaAriel Thomas - Nashville, TN07/18/2016
We were looking for a reliable car to drive our son to school and appointments. We weren't expecting to drive off the lot with a new car! The gas milage is amazing and the car itself was in perfect condition. I will never buy anything but Nissan from here on out!!
