Best car I’ve ever had

by First time buyer from Lubbock, TX | January 31, 2020

This car is great. It runs smoothly. Super comfortable seats. Enough leg room in the back. Interior is great. Love the color. As a first time buyer, this is exactly what I was looking for.

Excellent daily and commuter car.

by Pedro from Philadelphia, PA | January 28, 2020

Very reliable, quiet, smooth to drive and very comfortable. It has everything you need in a luxurious mid size sedan and it also fits me very well since I'm 7'1.

Most reliable car have owned

by Imogen from Virgina | January 22, 2020

After driving the Pilot, Ridgeline, Highlander, Santa Fe, and several others, the Altima 2.3sv was by far the best value for my money. It is solidly built, quiet, and smooth. The ride is like a Lexus and it handles much more like a sedan. It's just the right size, has very comfortable seats and is loaded with technology! On my first 500+ mile trip, I averaged 28.8 mpg. If you're looking for a new crossover in this segment, put this one on your short list to test drive.
