I had driven this car for a week as a rental. For a 4 cylinder engine, it had great power. As soon as you put your foot on the gas pedal, it would speed up in no time. I could not believe the car had a 4 cylinder engine. Great job Nissan.
The radio had decent sound, but not the best sound. The radio was modern and the controls were very easy to use. I like that.
The interior was nice, everything was modern. The one I drove had a black interior, which was a bonus.
The car had a push start. No key was required.
The car had really good brakes. The brakes stopped way better than my 2003 Impala brakes ever did (even when replaced).
The car did not have automatic headlights. I do not understand that. A base model 2003 Impala that has a bland interior and a tape player comes with automatic headlights. Why wouldn't Nissan put that feature in a nice car?
The seats were uncomfortable, not enough support. The seats need to go back farther. I am 6 feet 4 inches and I was really scrunched (no power seats). I fit into a base model 2003 Impala without power seats comfortably.
The car was also a little noisy. I have an 03 Impala and the ride is way quieter than the Nissan. Nissan should have thought about that.
Overall I liked the car. I would purchase one if I could fit. The car was modern and everything was up to date. Nissan did a good job with the Altima.
