My rocket review my kids call the car our rocket ship

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I love my car it's stylish comfortable and has lots of legroom. All my seats are heated and I can control the AC and music dials from anywhere in the car there are control dials on steering wheel and in the back seat so if the kids don't want to listen to what's on they can change it themselves. It has a mesh net In the back window so that helps a lot too it keeps the sun from getting into the kids eyes and makes it cooler in the car making everyone's ride more pleasant.

It's an efficient car. It's great on gas.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I have my Nissan Altima for about 2 years now and I have never had a problem with it. If you're looking for a good gas saver this car is indeed for you. I have gone from Gilroy, Ca to Los Angeles, Ca ( 4 1/2 hour drive ) and came make it back with just filling it up once before I leave Gilroy. The car runs very smoothly. For it to be a small car it is very roomy, there is plenty of space for the passengers. The trunk is very spacious too.

- Tapia B

It is safe, reliable, and does an amazing job of getting you from home to work.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

The brakes on the car are very smooth, which has always been what attracts me to Nissans. They drive easily, and I rarely run into problems with its performance. The only thing that I have had issues with is the air conditioning running out soon after being fixed - but I think this is a product of living in South Florida and often running the air very high for extended periods of time.

Great from mile 1-160001!

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

My car currently has 160,000 miles on it. I bought it brand new and it was such a smooth ride. As I have taken it regularly for maintenance it has held up great. Nothing major is wrong with my car. The color has held up, interior still looks great and it is still a pretty smooth ride. Hold two car seats comfortably and has enough space in the truck for traveling with the family.

No fast acceleration for 2011 Nissan

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

Comfortable, generally pretty reliable, but the 'check engine' light has been on and even when we get the car checked, it doesn't go off. Also, the car can't accelerate too fast (it starts making a weird noise at about 70 miles per hour). It starts to feel bumpy and the wheel almost vibrates if I get fast on the freeway too quickly. Basically, you just can't accelerate quickly.

- Bella W

The Nissan Altima is very nice and affordable.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

It is real comfortable to drive on the road. It is smooth drive and has a nice speed to it. No major issues with this car. I have only had to get the brakes checked and fixed. It is real comfortable on the inside. It does not have too much space, it is just enough space. The tires are nice. I would definitely recommend this car because it is safe and affordable.

- Amber G

I like how the back seat in the middle has a pull down thing with a cup holder.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I have had issues with trying to diagnose the problems when the sensory lights come on. It is a comfortable car and I feel safe driving it with my child in the car. I wish it had things that updated models have, like built in GPS Bluetooth etc. I have had to repair my brakes multiple times. I've never had an issue with finding/purchasing pets for this vehicle

- Candice C

2011 Nissan Altima has given me no problem at all

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

It's been the most reliable car I've ever owned and I will buy another one of the same again. I've never had any problems with my Altima from the time I bought it and it has just over 100,000 miles on it now. I would greatly recommend these cars to anyone that is looking for a nice, comfortable, elegant and dependable vehicle.

- Wanda A

Love my Altima no problems

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I love my Altima. I had to get used to the CRT transmission at first, but other than that I love it. I have had it for almost three years and have had no major problems besides brakes, tires, and the minor car things. I would definitely recommend this car and definitely purchase another Altima in the future.

- Shawn K

Gas efficiency, style, and class.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

Seems I have electrical issues at times. It is good on gas and reliable as far as traveling goes. I am sure when I purchase another vehicle Nissan will be my 1st choice. I do like the body style and leg room it gives me. I would prefer if the cars were a little higher, it seems low to the ground.

- Albert A

Nissan Altima is a good looking car as well as a cost efficient vehicle.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I have not had any problems with my 2011 Nissan Altima. The car drives great, good gas mileage, great sound system, air conditioning and heating system works great. It is a very dependable vehicle for the price. Great looking car design. I would buy this car again without any second thoughts!

- Annie L

Great car. Love it. Great gas mileage.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

Car drives smooth. Good gas mileage. Lots of room for traveling. Easy to take care of. I never had any problems. Seems low to the ground. That is my only compliant. Steering wheel has easy to control radio. Very uncomfortable. I very safe. Great car. Would not trade it for anything else.

- Helen V

My vehicle is a good image of me.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I love this vehicle. The model is very good and drives smoothly. It has everything I need inside and it tells you when tire is low, gas is low, etc. Great features. It has very good gas mileage as well. I have not had any major problems with it at all and this is my three year having it.

- Devin M

Nissan' is a super reliable car company.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

My family and I have been in our Nissan Altima for about 5 years now... and the car itself is really nice presentation wise and the performance is still outstanding. With regularly scheduled maintenance this car was definitely a good pick! The push to start is very convenient as well

- Jeremy M

My ' little red' is what I call my Altima.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I'm very comfortable with driving my Altima. In the last couple of years I have notice my car will suddenly accelerate on its own. This occurs and ends rather quickly. Outside of that maintenance is low. My Altima can drive long distances without issue and is excellent on gas.

- Beverly F

My Nissan Altima is a great daily driver.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

The Nissan I own is very well made on the comfort side of things and works very well. The AC has saved me from the heat of many summer days. I've driven the car almost 90 thousand miles with nothing going wrong or needing repair. Overall I like the quality of Nissan vehicles.

- Logan M

Awesome Altima. Reliable and efficient.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I really like that it is reliable, good on gas, and comfortable. Alignment and air flow problems lately. Overall it is a pretty good car to have. It has a sunroof, electric seats, and helpful dashboard visuals that tell the temperature, maintenance issues and gas and mileage.

- Destiny J

Nissan Altima and all its average wonders

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

It's good to date but sometimes the keyless start button fails the first few tries. The inside is comfortable. Definitely a good family car. It doesn't waste too much gas either. I fill it up about once a week sometimes less than that. Overall it's a good option to buy.

- Daniel D

Cute little sedan with a lovely interior

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

Mileage can be finicky. Bluetooth phone connect for calls but no Bluetooth connect for radio/music. Headlights are fairly dim. Very comfortable. As long as I've owned it it's been reliable. Stereo system is great. No problems with heat or air. Lots of cup holder options

- Ash M

Push button feature. Tells you if something is wrong with car.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

It gets me from point a to point b. Reliable, convenient, smooth drive. Does have sensor issues but can usually be resolved. One of the better cars to drive. As long as you keep up with maintenance. The car should not let you down. Performs well, does well on gas.

- Fatih E

Great car buying experience.

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

I have not had any problems with my Nissan Altima, good gas mileage & very dependable. Great performance, changes gears smoothly and has a stylish body & features. Nissans are great cars and has many great models to choose from with many affordable features.

- Cynthia E

Low outdated, yet sturdy vehicle

2011 Nissan Altima 2.5

my car is very reliable has never given me any problems mechanically, the only issue I have with this car is that it is a little too low and sometimes rubs against speed bumps if too much weight is in the car. I wish it was more modern and had Bluetooth.
