Beautiful, reliable, super fun to drive
Front bumper plastic comes uncoupled on driver's side.
I love this car! I was considering other 4 cylinder automatics, like the Accord, but the Altima Coupe sold me with lots of options. I got the 4 cylinder for fuel economy, and it totally delivers. The Accord was pricier, and did not have the styling of this Coupe. Getting one optioned out like this Altima would have been 50% more than I paid. Not worth it, considering the problems Honda has had with reliability recently.
The only complaint I have about the car is the front driver's side bumper plastic has popped out of the clips, and I had to fix it. Small potatoes, considering the rest of the package. Build quality and materials are otherwise great.
Anyone who says the CVT transmission is not a reason to get this car obviously hasn't driven one. I love the trans, and enjoy the smooth glide up to speed. Nissan offers owners a 120,000 mile replacement on the trans, if you ever have problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
