2010 Nissan Altima Coupe S 2.5 from North America
A well designed, manufactured and presented auto, that is still pleasing after 6 years of ownership
The Bridgestone tires are not very long lasting. Less than 40K on 3 of them, and they are NOT cheap.
Mileage is good, but not great; now averaging about 22. I feel it should be around 23-24.
Other than a battery going south after 1 1/2 years, which the dealer replaced with a 8 year unit, nothing else failed.
The car has a sporty look that attracts attention.
Fit and finish on the car was and still is exceptional.
I liked the way the car handled, and to see if I could upgrade, I added a front strut connector, and the handling was improved considerably.
Power was good at 177 HP, with acceleration very pleasing for a small engine.
To me, the brakes were not as strong as expected, but still got the job done, with resurfacing the rotors and replacing the pads after 35K. Now considering replacing the pads with a high friction set of pads, for increased stopping power.
Gas mileage is fair, as I sometimes have a heavy foot, but generally 19-22 MPG. Snow or inclement weather has not stopped the car once, and that also reflects to the previous Altima sedan I owned.
The dealer has taken exceptional care of the car, any concerns I might have had, and at only 49K miles, I will have this car for a long time. Happy and pleased with this car, and it helps that a VERY reputable and caring dealer stands behind it. AND, NO, I do not work for the dealer or Nissan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
