I am very happy to own a Nissan.

My Nissan Altima has been extremely reliable. The price was a major factor when I purchased the vehicle. It is very affordable and stylish. I have found Nissan dealers are accommodating and honest about the product. When I left the dealership, I was happy and satisfied with my purchase. I travel a lot and I can always depend on my Nissan to get me to my destination without any road complications while driving. This is the second Nissan vehicle I have owned and when I get ready to trade in this vehicle it will probably be to upgrade my current Nissan. The who family enjoys riding in my Nissan.

A sensory Nissan experience.

I love nissans in general, but my Altima really is one of the best I have owned. Comfortable ride. Great gas mileage. Nearly silent motor when idling. The one flaw I found is that warning lights pop up for random purposes. The tire maintenance warning is the worst. I do not like that it just says low air, but does not specify which tire. In bad weather, you have to check all four to get the warning to turn off. A valve sensor had to be removed on one tire so the light stays on because the sensor is gone. Never really know when the tires truly are low.

- Deborah S

Power to the foot pedal and you feel like you get pushed back into your seat.

I have no problems with it. It is very comfortable. The performance is awesome it is quicker than any car I have had. I have the technology package which means there is a button for everything. The radio is a Bose system one of the best. It out does a DJ. It has an alarm. I just got into a major car accident and I did great. There is nothing wrong with it except front cosmetic. Otherwise it drives perfect and straight as can be. It is a very reliable car and so far it has beat every car I have raced.
