Good car

Good car. Nissan is a nice car company and I have enjoyed all of my Nissan Altima’s that I have purchased. Happy customer. I will continue to drive Nissan cars

Great car overall

by Lyric from Atlanta | February 14, 2021

Car is enjoyable to drive. The leather seats are top quality, interior is sleek...could be a bit more stylish but it’s good. Intelligent technology is solid...Bose audio system pretty good. I added a JBL sub woofer to mines so I didn’t have to push all the bass through the speakers. It comes with 9 speaker audio system. Gas mileage city/highway they say up to 39 but the highest I’ve gotten is 35. City wise it goes between 25 and 28 mpg. The CVT transmission is smooth not so powerful though...only 188 horsepower. The exterior is probably one of the best Altima has had in years....overall I would highly recommend this car to anyone who wants a luxury/sporty car cost effective. I would pick the SL OR SR platinum trims to get the best out your buck.

Extremely Great on gas

I drove this car from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh in 27 degree weather with constant snow. Handled beautifully and used a quarter tank of gas in almost 300 miles
