2008 Nissan AltimaWilliam B - Atlanta, GA05/26/2015
I wanted a car that was safe, fairly quick, and not completely boring to look at or drive. It's been super reliable. It's never left me on the side of the road, and it's never given me any sort of trouble even on 10+ hour long road trips. I was super skeptical about the CVT, but I think Nissan has done a good job (at least with this model year) of making it feel good - although it still does kind of sound like you're killing it under hard acceleration. I have noticed that as it has gotten older, there are a few more rattles and squeaks, but that I am willing to accept that as being caused by awful in-town Atlanta roads. Still, an awesome car that is well worth the money!
While smaller interior wise than my previous SUV style car I can still fit at least a 36" wire dog crate in the back when I need to transport. In fact it holds two Great Pyrenees with room to spare! I don't have children to worry about, just dogs and cats, so this is the ideal car for me. Since I'm a senior citizen the height makes it easier to load and unload groceries too. No more stooping over to get things in and out of the back seat!
It's provides a lot of features for the money. I have used this car for several road trips, it has done wonderful. It cost very little to maintain. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a very reliable, low cost car with a lot of features! Mine even has a heating steering wheel! Love it!
