Short and sweet for your day commute.

It is great the only problem would be the recalls, the air condition work better on cold then hot, and it great on gas! I only have to put ten dollars a week in my tank, it is amazing compared to a truck that take like 50 dollars. One other problem to note my had a heat shield and it snap off causing some stress but I fixed it with some washers. It handles great! It provide a smooth drive through and through although I would prefer a bit more space in the trunk and in the front drivers side; it's great for smaller driver but taller drivers seem to struggle a bit! So recommend this for shorter people! The seats are comfortable and adjustable there is a lot of legroom in the back seat which is great for friends and family! It is great during all weather and is build well, I hit a curb during some rain and it did not take an damage. It overall is a great vehicle and would recommend to friends and family, it is a great pick for those looking for a car with great handling, a lot of space, and even better on gas! I love this car would not trade it for the world another great thing in the spare tire space in the truck it will also how a small jack I recommend replacing with small but more user friendly version! Another tad bit is that it has tire sensors so if your tire goes flat it will tell you right away! It nice for those who live life on the run and drive to place where nail are always a hazard! Overall it is a great daily driver!

Economical Nissan Altima 2012.

I love my car..Its a 4 cylinder and has plenty of power compared to some other cars I owned that were 4 cylinders (such as a ford focus). My car runs very smooth and quiet. I have had no major issues at all!! The motor is very strong. I drive in the mountains all the time and no problems of overheating etc. It has electric windows power locks, child locks. Has am/FM radio and CD player... I love the auxiliary outlet I can use while driving to talk on the phone. It's very spacious and comfortable for people with long legs. The trunk is very spacious also. Very gas efficient also which I love. I drive a lot so that's important to me. The color of my interior is beige and it's very easy to clean. Was a little worried about that when I purchased it, but no problems at all. I recommend the Altima and I will purchase one again.

Choose Nissan: Low maintenance, Commuter friendly, and gas sufficient.

The Nissan Altima is a very reliable car. I give it a over all ten out of ten for it being a 2012 Nissan. We are in 2019 and its still looks and drive brand new. It's very spacious I'm all about the space on the inside and sporty Its a 4 door sedan, maintenance is a ten out of ten the regular oil change and breaks etc... Gas mileage is the best it only takes about twenty-five dollars to thirty dollars to fill up if its extremely low on empty the your looking towards the thirty dollar range. If you commute I definitely recommend this car because driving performance is great and gas sufficient which is the BEST! This car is not a car you want to trade in for another, this car is definitely a keeper despite the age. Nissan are just that good!

I am not impressed with my Nissan Altima 2012!

I have had a lot of issues with my 2012 Nissan Altima. About 6 months ago while I was driving my car, the car stopped in the middle of the road (very scary!). The engine was still running, but all electrical parts were off. Turns out the "main computer" of my car had completely fried. Took to the shop, and they had no idea why this happened but after 12 days of being in the shop, they were able to fix my car. I have also just not been impressed with how it drives, especially in poor weather conditions (rain, ice). I am constantly adding more air pressure into my tires. Overall, it's just a "piece of crap" car that I am essentially driving into the ground once its paid off. Cannot wait to get a new car!

- Caroline S

It has cruise control and you can still gear down as if using a stick shift.

My Nissan Altima 2. 5S is a beauty. Performance wise it is a quick starter and is very silent on idle. It runs like a stallion even when it needs servicing and parts. It is very reliable. All the seats are comfortable and there is more than enough leg room in front and back. The trunk is also very spacious. All doors have a cupholder which I like plus there are additional cup spaces in the pull down slot on the back seat. I didn't mention the Audio system. While I am no expert I think the system is very good and more than loud enough. It appears to have a built in subwoofer. Attach your gadgets and you can do hands free calls play music as well as listen to your choice of navigation system.

Well-built, reliable vehicle.

This is a stock car. Great interior even though it is upholstery. Very easy to maintain and runs great. I am already at 75, 000 miles and have had no problems with the engine or any auxiliaries. They make this in 3. 5 liter with an option for leather seats, but my 2. 5 liter is exceptional and I do not need leather seats. I have driven it in the city but also on long distances. I even drove it across the country with absolutely no problems. The gas mileage is around 20-25 and can even reach 30 mpg on the highway. I would recommend the Altima to anybody wanting a reliable vehicle.

- John S

Spacious, luxurious vehicle

This vehicle is extremely reliable with no issues at all. Very comfortable. Seat is easily adjustable in all directions for maximum comfort. Easy access to controls for all features; more than I could ever use! Many controls are accessed directly from the steering wheel to include radio controls. This model has an excellent Bose speaker system. Great climate comfort for Minnesota subzero temperatures as well as hot humid summers. This is also a very spacious vehicle. Everyone loves it when I drive. There is ample room for five adults and the trunk is extremely large.

- Stacy G

Great car for your buck, but if you want something luxurious this is not the car.

After going from a 2002 Chevy Tahoe to a Nissan, it is not terrible because it is newer but I do miss having a truck. This car sits low, and is pretty small. Initially, it seemed like a decent size and was a sturdy car. But, having my taller friends sit in the vehicle, at least in the back seat it is a no. Front seat is cool. Honestly, it is not that bad. Just wish it had more to it for a 2012. It is lush to start, with basic gadgets. Not a bad car to buy for the gas. So much better than my last car, and it lets you know how many miles you have until e.

2012 Nissan Altima review.

It is a relatively comfortable car the only thing I do not like about is it that it is too low and sometimes it is hard to see. I really enjoy the heated seats. The Bluetooth does not work too great in the car, when I try to connect my phone to listen to music it goes in and out and when I use the speakerphone it is really echoey. It is a very reliable car it is never broken down on me and I can trust that it will get me to where I need short distances and long distances. The only thing I would suggest to people is if you are short buy a bigger car.

- Nicole K

Our Nissan Altima is a reliable car.

Our gas mileage is not as good as when we first bought it new as to be expected but we have it professionally serviced regularly. A few months ago the 'check engine' light would come on every time we start going anywhere but I had that serviced too. The car has been very reliable. Riding in the car has been enjoyable since it is comfortable, which is important to us because we make trips out of town four or five times a month. When we get another car later my wife and I thinking another car like this or similar to this one is what we will need.

- Bobby C

Great reliable car for everyday needs

I really love my car. I was bought used but it didn't have that many miles on it for being a 2012 model. It is very comfortable and the gas mileage is great. It is very roomy for a sedan, since my brother, who is over 6 feet tall, can sit in the back seats with ample room. No major issues with it thus far and it seems very reliable. The one thing I do wish was that there would be a light on the dashboard when the headlights are on. They are automatic lights, but I have no idea when the lights are switched on or not unless it is dark outside.

- Kayla A

Dual transmission, Bluetooth compatible, CD player, USB Ports 2012 Nissan Altima.

I love my 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5SL. It comes Bluetooth ready to pair with your phone for safe hands free driving. It comes with Bose speakers which are amazing. It's push start with a keyless entry. Dual transmission so you can drive automatic or 5 speed. Mine has a sunroof which I love, and it's great on gas mileage. Leather seats that are heated in the front, dual air vents, anti lock brakes, digital dashboard, night vision rearview mirror and backup camera. My dream car, I'd recommend to anybody. Plus it's very roomy.

2012 Nissan Altima 3. 5. Amazing through and through!

The only issues I have had with my Nissan Altima has been read end related. I had to have the springs replaced. Then I had to have the shocks and rear bearings replaced. I was having issues with the rear end swaying when I hit any type of bumps. With the work completed, the drive is superior and free of excessive sway. I was thinking of trading the car before the work was complete, now I doubt I will trade it. The ride is incredible, the car is amazing and I love it and all the sport and technology features.

- Steven K

Nissan Altima - the ride that glides.

My automobile is black with sunroof and spoiler. The bring a sassy look to a luxury vehicle. The seats are comfy while driving and relaxing to lay back and rest on a long trip. My 62 pound dog Annie loves riding and sleeping in the back seat. The vehicle has a lock system that prevents my most intelligent dog from opening window and jumping out to join me while shopping. I learned this technique the hard way. It is an excellent ride and the mileage is decent. I would highly recommend the Nissan Altima/.

- Wanda K

Nissan Altimas are p cool cars

The Nissan Altima I own is a beautiful, hard working car. It's very reliable and gets pretty decent gas mileage. The leather seats are overall decently comfortable and the car has a nice amount of space to move around in. The only downside of the car, in my opinion, is how fragile it can be. Certain places have weaker plastic frames it seems for their newer cars and I believe this car falls into that category. Older metal cars are much stronger. In the end this car still drives great and is a good buy.

- Nicole C

Great car great on gas good first car.

Love my Nissan Altima. It is great on gas mileage. I love that is has Bluetooth and AUX cord. I love how roomy it is for a car. There are 4 cup holders. The dash locks. Great for keeping my money safe. Press start ignition. The only thing I don't like is that it costs three hundred dollars for the key. Wheels are great last a long time. The stereo sounds amazing! Great for a first car for teens. Awesome alerts when gas is low tires are low oil needs changed all around amazing car!

- Ashley L

Big gas tank. Comfortable seating. Nice trunk space.

Our Altima is a great car with a huge gas tank. However it takes premium gas so it is a beast to fill up. There is something wrong with it to where is really acts up ( especially in heat) after being driven on the interstate or traveling at 60-70 mph for more than an hour, the vehicle loses power and you have to pull over and let the car sit to regain rpm and have power again. That is the only problem we have had with this vehicle other than that is a really great car!

- Kristen M

2012 Nissan Altima is a step above all other cars. Best car I have ever owned.

My 2012 Nissan Altima is my favorite car I have owned thus far. There is a backup camera, which makes even parallel parking a breeze for a new driver. It really takes the pressure off of backing up. The sunroof is great. I have the Bose sound system and man can that rock! It is such a smooth driving car. There is a ton of room and cup holders. The fabric is really nice and they seats adjust smoothly. Just really a great value all around and it looks amazing too!

- Lisa F

This is a good car and I would buy it again

I bought this car used from a dealer. There are some small problems, but I have over 100,000 miles on it. The automatic setting on the headlights failed, and left the lights on and ran down the battery, so I just don't use that setting any more. The car has a push button start, and I love it. There is a button on the door handle that opens the door if you have your keys on you. I love not taking my keys out of my purse! I find this car is easy to handle and drive.

- Patti B

Reliable and power windows trunk except seat.

Well I have never encounter any problem so far on my used 2012 Nissan Altima. Given the fact that I only drove 6 miles from and to home and worm. Engine is 2. 5 so gas is a life saver. Power everything. Keyless entry cold ac radio still function. I am sorry not power everything seat is not you have to adjust it manually which I prefer auto control. Push start is a plus just do not forget the chip in the car as you leave and push to turn off after stopping.

- Isaiah I

Altima: comfort and fuel efficient.

This car just fits my body. It is very comfortable. The gas mileage, especially on the interstate, is wonderful. I can get 400 hundred miles per gallon on the interstate when using cruise control. The controls located on the steering wheel are very convenient. I like being able to lower the back seats - very good for transporting potted trees! The Altima is smaller than the cars I have driven in the past, but the comfort and gas mileage are worth it.

- Donna P

I can't think of a single thing I dislike about my Nissan.

- Char G

Its technology is decent, it's comfortable and easy to drive. You will enjoy a smooth drive.

Nissan Altima 2012 is a pretty nice car overall. The push button technology that allows you to drive without using the car key is nice, and you don't even need to use the key to open the car if you have the keys close to you, you just press a sensor and it opens for you. It does concern me in terms of how easy it might be for hackers to break in though. The seats are comfortable, and the car comes with two USB ports, which is convenient.

- Karla B

I Love and I "can Depend On My Altima Coupe

I Love Nissan Altima Coupe. They are strong and dependable. The push start is great. As a female I feel safe at night getting into my car because all I need is to have the key in my purse. I touch the handle and the door opens. I can take off and the doors automatically locks. It lets me know if I need air in my tires. Just doesn't let me know which one. Even though I fill up at a half tank, it will let me know I have 20 miles to go.

- Cynthia P

My 2012 nissan altima is a safe and dependable family vehicle.

We purchased our 2012 nissan Altima in February of 2014 with 44k miles on it. It's been an extremely dependable car with no major issues whatsoever, we've only had to perform maintenance work on it other than buying new tires, one battery replacement, and replacing the rear brakes. It drives very smoothly and I feel safe driving my family around in it. It now has almost 120k miles on it. I would definitely purchase the same car again.

- Kristin C

Nissans overheat when you drive them on the freeway and according to the dealer, can't be fixed. This is very dangerous and needs to be resolved.

At first I really liked my Altima but I noticed that when I drive on the freeway, my car overheats and slows down (even if my foot is all the way down on the gas) every time I take it in to get it fixed, they tell me that can't figure out what is wrong with it. I think one of the engine tubes overheats. Anyway I know other people who own Nissans and they have the same problem. Because of this issue, I will never buy a Nissan again.

- Erica G

Good on gas low maintainable and reliable vehicle.

The Nissan Altima is really good on gas. I am not exactly sure on the mileage to the gallon. I have not had any major issues such as motor or transmission problems. I have had this car for 5 years and counting. I have the basic model with no bells and whistles like leather seats, rear view camera and sunroof. Performance is pretty great and very reliable. I have had my battery changed once maybe twice since having this car.

- Jade M

Altima the experience. The experience that you will not forget.

I love my Altima because it's good on gas mileage and the drive is comfortable. The standard features of this vehicle is great and makes me feels great whenever I drive it anywhere. The standard features are all wheel drive, intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, apple CarPlay, android auto, key-activated remote engine start, 8-way power driver seat, and USB type outlets to connect my devices.

- Stacy S

I love my Nissan Altima!!

I bought my car in 2012 and have had no mechanical problems. It drives great and I love the notification I get when I need an oil change. It does also drive a little rough when it is getting close to needing an oil change but the moment it gets one, it drives perfectly. The paint however is a gold color and has peeled a bit. The break light in the rear window went out a long time ago but other than that I love my Altima.

- Rose S

Long lasting family car with regular needed maintenance.

I've had my vehicle for 5 years. Over the five years I haven't had any major issues however I have had issues. Tire issues; hub bearing, struts, brakes, pins, rods, tires and oil leak. After fixing the hub Barron my key light, check engine light and another light on my dashboard has been on and the speedometer no longer works. Sensors has been check as well as the fixed part. Everything under the hood works great.

- Angela B

Same as old car just updated and better.

Fairly new purchase, bought it used because other car was too much money to fix. Runs well, haven't had any problems yet. But the dealer would take a very long time to give us what he promised. We were promised $100, for them to pay for a cracked windshield, and an extra fob. It took them a month to fix the windshield. And they still have not given us the second fob, it is been 4 months since purchasing the car.

- Rachel B

This had been a great car so far, we only have 80, 000 miles on it.

The Altima is a very reliable car, it is comfortable to both drive and ride in. I gets good gas mileage. The only thing we have had to fix or replace on the vehicle have been the regular maintenance items, such as oil changes, brakes and tires. Overall the car has been a good car. My only complaint about the car is that it rides very close to the ground and I have a difficult time getting in and out of the car.

- Cynthia H

grey charcoal in color, grey interior cloth seats, the interior is black.

This car drives very smoothly, no bouncing or bumpy rides. The car gets good gas mileage, I usually gas up about every week and a half. The features are easy to use and work well. It has Bluetooth for your phone, but does not connect to Bluetooth for your phone in this year and model. My car has been very reliable. I've had my car for four years, and only had minor issues, such as a brake pad needing changed.

- Jennifer M

Reliable and comfortable!

It has several upgrades available, most of which I have, like Bose high quality sound system, heated seats, a sunroof, Bluetooth, under lights when you open the doors, and a whole lot more. I have; however, had quite a few lights come on the dash in the three years I have owned the vehicle, but it has not broken down on me or been running rough so I am not too concerned. Overall, a fantastic vehicle!

- Casey H

Most reliable car I have owned.

Most reliable car I have ever owned. I have had mine for almost 6 years and barely had any major work done. Only downside is it is very low to the ground. It is kind of like a boat sometimes with how long and wide it is. Great reliable car. I plan to run mine into the ground! Easy to drive and the seats are comfortable too. Would recommend to anyone looking for a safe, reliable, and well priced car.

- Allie S

Decent mpg, good a/c, low to the ground, lacks backup camera.

The car is reasonably comfortable and has decent gas mileage. The fuel tank is large, which is nice, because you can get about 500 miles out of a tank of gas (highway driving). The a/c works well. The only real negative is that is lacks a backup camera and the vehicle is really low to the ground, which (as a tall individual) means I kind of have to climb up out of it every time I exit the vehicle.

- Eric T

Dependable, even in MN winters.

I have had my Nissan Altima for over 2 years now and have yet to have any issues with it. As a young female adult and first-time car owner, this vehicle has been a great fit for me! I get oil changes regularly, but other than that this vehicle has been very simple for me to maintain! I would highly recommend a Nissan Altima to anyone who wants an extremely reliable vehicle at an affordable price.

- Samantha H

My family's Nissan Altima.

I drive a 2012 Nissan Altima. I bought it used. I have had it for 3 years now with no issues. I really like that it has a warning light that comes on when your tires are worn and need to be replaced. I drive it to work and our family of four regularly uses this vehicle to go places. It has plenty enough room for the four of us and can fit three in the back seat fairly comfortable if needed.

- Spring S

Fun, comfortable car for daily driving

I bought this car used in 2017 and I love it. Easygoing and comfortable to drive. I've even taken it out of state for family vacations carrying a family of four sitting comfortably. I haven't had any major repairs on the vehicle yet. It has a nice deep trunk too! Everything seems pretty easy to get to under the hood as well. I don't have to go crazy looking to check my oil or other fluids.

- Teresa D

Great first car for a newer driver.

I bought my car used. So somethings were already scratched or squeaking. It drives smoothly even on the interstate. The Altima has good gas mileage and everything seems to work great. On the interstate, I have noticed kind of a drill or siren sound. It's not loud but is kind of concerning. Do not know if it's just me or if other Altima owners have that too. The inside is spacious.

- Olivia F

Nissan Altima Coupe, my favorite car so far.

My car is honestly great. My Nissan has been with me for just over a year and I have had little to no issues with it. The belts wear a little faster than I'd like in the motor but that's alright, my AC has always been strong although I wish I had seat cooling/heating. The suede seats are great because liquid balls up and rolls off of them very easily. Overall, my Nissan is great.

- John M

I love the leather seats and the sunroof and my back up camera..

It is great on gas and I have all luxury inside. The leather seats, sunroof, heated seats back up camera. I cannot complain. I keep up with the maintenance and I have not have any issues. So hopefully it continues and then I will eventually get something else maybe even just get a new model of the same car though. I heard they came out with the all wheel drive. So that is a plus.

- Stephanie W

Great car. Love the Bluetooth.

My Altima drives great it has a push button start. Good radio. Good air with vents in good comfortable locations. The back seat ride as well as the front. Has Bluetooth on steering wheel to make calls whilst driving.. This is convenient. Power locks and windows. Cruise control located on the steering wheel. Gets 28 to 30 mpg. Car has never gave a minutes trouble love my Altima.

Nissan 2012 Altima Review

When it snows the tires tend to pick up a lot of snow around them and in the winter if there is enough snow it will sometimes freeze making it more difficult to get moving. Other than that the vehicle drives really nice. As long as it is maintained correctly it will last. I get roughly 20 mpg in town and up to 40+ on the highway depending on driving habits. Lots of trunk space.

- Kyle M

Roomy and reliable vehicle for all

I love my car. It is super comfortable and roomy. It has 4 doors so each person has room to enter or exit. There are 3 cup holders in the front and two in the back which is super handy. The trunk space is phenomenal as well. I've had issues with my car engine but this was a used car when I bought it and I believe it's just in need of a tune up. The car is extremely reliable.

- Bailey H

Gas saver! Good for long distance drives as far as gas goes.

I have a Nissan Altima. I drive it long distance everyday. I would an hour away from where I live and the vehicle runs smooth. Its spacious, has huge trunk space but most importantly its saves a lot of gas. I have not had any problems with the vehicle yet so I would says its very reliable. Minor details like air pressure and oil changes the vehicle lets me know right away.

- Sandra A

Great value for getting around at a low cost.

Some problems would be when driving as soon as you take your foot off the pedal you can feel the car slow down it does a little jolt sometimes. Also you can hear it rev up when you press the pedal, so the cars not as quiet. The mpg are great and getting from point A to B is a breeze. It is very spacious for a sedan. It is a great price for the value and I would recommend.

- Deja B

Great midsize car that's reliable

The Nissan Altima is very reliable and comfortable. The interior materials are soft and textured. The design is a bit plain but I like the look of the circle air vents. Front and back seats are spacious. The engine is powerful and accelerates easily. Steering is responsive. Brakes are great. Push-start button and keyless entry. Great quality speakers. Trunk is spacious.

- Diana Z

Altima is a great deal for the price.

In this model the center console between the two front seats is moveable and does not feel correctly anchored. Having said that this vehicle is a great value and is actually my second Altima. The car dealership is great with a low pressure approach to car sales. Comfortable interior. I like the fact that the back seats can be lowered to extend the trunk area of the car.

- Cindy R

I love the blue they have on this car.

No problems, vehicle very reliable, drives good, seats are not very comfortable. Gas mileage is really good only downfall is the gas tank is big so takes a lot to fill. As long as you keep your car maintenance up it will least a good time for you. They have a push start, only downfall on this is sometime the car will not start the first and to do it more than once.

- christine S

Paint chips and window motor goes out

I have Paint chips on my hood and top of car and anyone I talk to that owns a Nissan Altima has the same problem. The company does not consider it a recall item. My right window motor went out only a few months of purchase. I got it fixed but now it's trying to go out again. The other windows are slowly trying to go out as well. So far no other issues with my car.

- Lindsey S

A very reliable car for anyone!

My car is a great car. It drives smooth, it is good on gas(highway car), and it always lets me know when there is a problem that needs to be seen about, with the lights on the dash. I love the radio and the fact that there is an aux and a CD player attached. I rarely ever have any problems with my car. I am very comfortable that my car is there for the long haul.

- Kiara A

Just a great car all sums it up

Very reliable just keep up the fluids. Nice sleek look. Affordable. Just it got to be well maintained and would take you anywhere. It also has a great sound system. I could sit in it all night. Speaking of the sunroof is also a great feel and look for the car. Went to Orlando with 1 fill up an really had enough to go there ride around and come like half way back.

- Mack D

The best Nissan out there.

The car often has to have oil changes, too many for my liking. It does drive pretty smooth and feels like a very safe car. I use it a lot to drive my mother around and my sister to school. The seats are comfortable and have enough space for me to have friends. I would probably like a bigger car but it's fine. It allows me to use an aux cord which I like as well.

- Kia K

My vehicle is black and I call her summer.

The vehicle is pretty good overall! Never had any major issues. Changed brakes twice since I've had it. Change the battery once however my battery did die within my first year of buying vehicle. My vehicle has all the features; sunroof, power seats, navigation. The trunk is a big and holds a lot. The ride feels smooth. The tank usually fills up with about $40-45

- Candace L

Wonderful 2012 Nissan maxima.

Extremely reliable, it drives very smoothly, good on gas, cheap to fix, no major problems, but the batteries usually do not last too long. Wonderful car to drive. Wonderful features, push to start, accelerates very fast, with no delay. It has power windows and the car handles very well. Good not great turning radius. Gas tank is larger than that of a small SUV.

- Rose M

Reliable and roomy vehicle

My Nissan Altima has leather interior and seat warmers which I love. It is a reliable vehicle- never have a problem with it starting up and is very 'roomy.' The only thing I absolutely dislike about this vehicle is that is way too low to the ground. It's hard to get in and out and if I get too close to the curb when I park it will take off my front bumper.

- Kayla G

2012 Nissan Altima Coupe- two door

I love my car so much, it is a coupe model so it is a much sportier car. It rides beautifully, and is a gorgeous car. The only issue that I have had with it is that the gas pump fails to open at the push of the button on occasion. My job requires me to travel for long periods of time regularly and the car has held up so well and been extremely reliable.

- Rylie C

The 2012 Nissan Altima is an great car.

The vehicle is nice. I haven't had any major issues. One flaw of the car is that the average miles scale is off, I can go way farther than what it says I can. Other than that I love the car. The car doesn't make any noises and I have had it for a year and it hasn't broke down which is good because I am an uber driver. It's not an little car that's good.

- Ruby W

My vehicle has cloth seats, a.C, heat, aux plug-in, and all black interior.

My vehicle is very dependable. I drive it back and forth for transportation to work as well as doing personal shopping, etc. I would definitely recommend my car to anyone! It is great on gas mileage, and is perfect for a small family! I drive my family around and can fit at least three car seats in the back all at once, so it is very spacious as well!

- Marilyn S

2012 Nissan Altima is very good.

My Nissan is good overall. I like how it drives, air conditioning is very good, stereo system and sounds system is awesome. The car is very comfortable inside. It has a little bit of problems with brakes and transmission. Gas mileage is about 17 mpg. It fills with about $70.00 and it lasts me for 2 weeks driving normal to work about 14 miles one way.

- Oscar A

My Nissan can go from 0 to 60 in less than a minute!

The only problems I have are tire issues as of lately. For the most part, if you keep up with the vehicle maintenance, such as oil changes, brakes, etc., there are no issues. A Nissan wouldn't have been my choice of a car, but I purchased it because it was what I could afford at the time. But I must admit, I am truly overall satisfied with my Nissan!

I save a lot of gas. The best part is how comfortable it is.

My car runs very smooth. It is very reliable. Push start and great performance. It has ac, CD player, high performance speakers. I have never had any problems with this car. I would by another one and recommend buying one. This car is one out of three cars that I enjoy driving. I look forward to purchasing another one in the future.

- stacey F

They most reliable vehicle I have owned.

My Altima has been extremely reliable! Besides the normal wear and tear of tire replacements I have not had any issues. I drive the coupe so the only downside is that it is lower to the ground and can scrape the undercarriage easily. The battery on the key fob lasts forever and is easily changed when it does die - just takes a standard watch battery.

- Caitlin D

Great little car with an attitude. Slick and smooth black car.

Smooth driving. Great gas mileage. The sound system is fantastic. It comes with heated seats, a moonroof, and a spoiler. The trunk is very roomie. I can fit up to 3 large suitcases in it. The leather seats are comfortable. Back seats are comfortable and there's plenty of legroom. The driver seat is adjustable. It comes with Bluetooth and a CD player.

Nissan Altima 2012 navy blue review.

The car runs great the only thing I do not like about it, is the fact that the brakes always squeak no matter if I go get them tightened or fixed they constantly squeak very loudly. The car has not broken down or had to be fixed and we've had it for almost 3 years now, it is really a great car and I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a car.

- Maria B

Great Car, not many issues

It is very reliable, comfortable to sit in, runs like a champ and is able to take a few bumps and bruises here and there. My only issue is that it is a little too low to the ground for my liking. The dash lights are extremely accurate as long as you keep her tuned, don't go too heavy on the breaks though or the car will start to jerk when you break.

- Jordan J

Nissan Altima review 2012

It is very reliable. The seats are very comfortable, and I have back problems, so the comfort is a very big factor for me. It is a very smooth ride. The steering wheel is also comfortable, the air conditioner is extremely efficient, as is the heat. The radio is very good sounding, and very clear. I love the appearance of my car, and it is very roomy

- Sally S

It's a great buy. Not only for the price performance and style are great.

It's very roomy and comfortable I am a mom so the fact u cant fit my son his stroller and something to entertain him with all comfortable is great. It's very reliable rides smooth perfect amount of speed. Sounds great looks sporty. The radio sucks tho in this heat and sun exposure sometimes the face doesn't even display anything. Iver all I love it

- Claris V

My vehicle gets incredible fuel mileage. It is very inexpensive to travel in.

Very good fuel mileage and reliability. Handles very well in varying road conditions. Very comfortable to travel in. Little road noise. Great accessories. Vey good vehicle for a small family. Very large trunk for storage space. Low maintenance required to maintain vehicle. Part are inexpensive. Do not like the fuse on the battery cable though.

- Billy D

I love the sound system the cars are stocked with.

I love my Nissan Altima. It is very good on gas, drives very smooth and it has been reliable. The inside is very spacious and seats are comfortable. I plan to upgrade the model soon to a newer year. My only concern is the paint jobs on the cars. In the past I've notice the paint chips and rust very easily and mines is beginning to do the same.

- Bianca P

Eight years of reliability

I bought this car in 2011 as a birthday gift to myself. It had about 7 miles on it. I've since added over 100K to that number. The only major issue I've had was having to replace the transmission in 2017. I don't think it was a manufacturer defect but more of where I was taking it to be serviced. This car is very reliable and very good on gas.

- Anya A

My Altima an unassuming, white, Underpowered but comfortable. Good gas mileage.

My Altima is basically a good solid car. Materials and workmanship is decent, quality is questionable with fasteners and electrical devices. We have had multiple issues with sensors failing, instrument cluster failing and ignition problems before the car had 40k miles.. Generally though it has been a reliable if not entirely bulletproof car.

- Loren B

Nissan is always the car for me.

All my car's have been Nissans with the exception of one, which was a Toyota and I really had no other choice in the matter under the circumstances. Nissan's are fairly priced, stylish and provides reliable transportation. The only con I can think of is the poor ability to withstand impact, but this is true for a lot of similar type cars.

- Ashley S

This vehicle is perfect for someone such as a student or a single person.

My car is wonderful but shortly after I bought it, there were many problems with the call option that connects to my phone. I have not used the feature since. The car does not need to be filled up with gas frequently and I love that. It gets filled up with very little money. The seats are comfortable and all the features are easy to use.

- Leslie P

Overall good car. I would recommend.

I would recommend this car. One downside is very low clearance - good for my old dog. Not ideal for driving in the snow. Good gas mileage. I only need to fill up my tank once every 2 weeks driving 20 miles a day each way. The interior is spacious. Trunk in a good size for a sedan. I have 65,000 miles on it and no major mechanical issues.

- Jen W

You'd want to drive in a Nissan Altima no matter what scenario.

I have owned my car for almost a year now and I am happy to say this vehicle has given me the least problems in years of driving. I stay up to date with my oil changes and the car run smooth as the day I bought it. It is a reliable vehicle. Great on mileage. Easy to maintain. If your the on the go type like myself it is perfect for you.

- David R

Easy to handle, low gas mileage.

Very spacious Bluetooth capability great gas mileage low maintenance automatic transmission heated seats power windows sunroof spacious backseat all leather interior fun to drive in easily to handle that very reliable vehicle I will personally recommend this vehicle to my friends and families and willing to show it off at any moment.

- Dwayne K

Back up sensor without sound

The car has a backup camera that shows the view from the back but it doesn't have any sound. It would be great if there was some kind of beeping or flashing that happens when someone is behind the car. If someone crosses the rear of the car while I'm reversing, there is no alert given to the driver if you're not watching the camera

- Rene D

I love the radio system its loud and clear.

None it's a nice smooth ride. Great gas mileage. It's the first car I've bought all by myself. It feels good to own my own car. Its driven me everywhere. I am a taller man at about 6,4 and I fit perfectly in it. I really love my 2012 Nissan altima. I live the adventures we have been on and cant wait for the new ones on the horizon.

- Connor S

Spacious and comfortable good car with low maintenance and great gas mileage.

Nothing really wrong with it just had for a long time so I guess I'm use to it. But all in all it's a good car low maintenance great in gas spacious. Love the trunk because I'm a hoarder slots of space back there. Love my car it's wonderful!! Great for families or single person who needs a lot of space . It's very comfortable car.

- Christian J

My car is economical, and very fast.

Comfortable, fast, economical. Rides well, drives well, like the size and ample trunk room. I like the radio controls in the steering wheel, but do not care for the lack of radio channels. The console is a little difficult to get to, since the stick shift is immediately in front of it, but other than that, I really love my Altima.

- Danielle F

Nissan Altima, best car ever!

I love my car. It performs well, is great on gas and I have never had any issues with it other than routine maintenance. It is an amazing car! Well built. I keep up with the oil changes every five thousand miles and it runs great! I am impressed with my Nissan Altima and highly recommend this car to anyone considering purchasing.

- Beth E

Very economic on gas, few engine problems. Recommend for college students.

Is very as far mileage. I feel this vehicles have many defects with the transmission, the back windows do not open from the front. This is a good car for college students very good mileage, very little maintenance needed. It has leather seats which is a plus during the winter time. I would say the Nissan altima is a reliable car.

- Paula S

Easy to use/affordable/fashionable.

My Nissan Altima is very reliable and very safe and easy to operate. I have had it for almost 5 years now and it still runs great. The engine, lights, and sunroof are in perfect condition and work correctly. Although it is a great car and very affordable, the electric Charger in my car died and I am unable to access those parts.

- Anthony H

2012 Nissan Altima review.

This car drives very smoothly, it is great on gas mileage, and is comfortable to ride in. I wish my car had leather seats with the heated seats feature since I live in a primarily cold climate area. I also wish there was a sunroof for those few hot summer days. Other than that, I love this car and I would recommend it to anyone.

- Mackenzie W

Cons of the 2012 Nissan Altima se.

The car at first was just fine till the alert message keeping popping up on the dash; even after you fix the problem. The blind spot indicator sometimes gets confused with the other line. . . I mean a lot. The tires was already used up pretty good, was informed they would replaced them for free at the dealership. Didn't happen.

- Ashley W

Frosty white color is beautiful.

I love my car. I love the frosty white color and how comfortable it is to drive. It has been very reliable with only normal maintenance required. It is good on gas mileage and has good power for a four cylinder. The back seat is very spacious and the trunk is large and the eldest seat food down feature has been very convenient.

- Katie A A

Luxury vehicle makes long car trips bearable and pleasurable

Weather trim leaks, heater core has gone out. Leaked brake fluid for no apparent reason. Large and hard to maneuver. Usually reliable. Spacious and comfortable for long car rides. Great on gas. Really love the estimation it gives on miles left till empty. Temperature gauge for outside the car is handy too. Lights are automatic

- Clara D

Fully loaded 2012 Altima, back up camera and all!

My car so far has been extremely reliable. The parts that I have had to buy, like the filter, are inexpensive. It gets great gas mileage! I love my car, the body is the older make so in my opinion it looks older than it is. It comfortably fits 5 adults, with all seat belts. It has a massive trunk and the seats are comfortable.

- Ashley M

Nissan Altima is just a Good Vehicle

My vehicle has been pretty good to me. I've drive it for 5 years now. My family had it 2 years prior. The A/C Compressor has gone out once and my accelerator once stopped working properly for a short period of time. Other than that though, I haven't had too many issues with it. Would definitely recommend for a vehicle to get.

- Caleb W

With regular maintenance, this car is very dependable.

I bought this car (used) last year (in 2017) and it has never given me any problems! Easy maintenance and very economical when it comes to gas mileage. Rides smoothly, a lot of room for a family of 3, and very durable interior. I would highly recommend this make and model of car to anyone I know. It is truly a dependable car.

- Kara B

Reliable. I have had for 5 years and has never broken down except battery and a nail in the tire

I wish my car was a little bigger. My family and i are borderline hoarders. So when we go out of town for the weekend we pile the bags in and don't have enough space but It's a great car. My personality is more of a large SUV. It's a great for my mother but for me as a mother of 2 with one on the way i need a larger vehicle.

- claudia S

Not the best car. Not the best family car. Not the best car to travel in.

I really don't think Nissans are good cars, I feel like they are cheap. I have always had some kind of trouble with my car. It is comfortable, I'll give it that. However, I don't even feel safe driving out of town in that car. I can't go more than 75 on the freeway, my car feels like it's going to break down going too fast.

- Jasmin A

I love my vehicle. It is stylish, roomy and reliable and will be keeping it.

Nissan Altima is compact yet roomy. It has lots of legroom and it also looks sporty and stylish. It looks nice on both young and older drivers. It is reliable. Parts are sort of expensive but it is worth it. I am sure I will get a lot of mileage from it because it is not a gas guzzler. I will keep my Altima for a long time.

- Rose F

Very roomy, great family car!

My door doesn't stay open unless it is swung out the whole way. My seat is very far down so it take a lot of offset to get in and out of it. The speakers aren't great if you like music loud or with bass. VERY roomy, great sized seats for even people in the back. Comfortably fits 5. Has a great big trunk, can fit so much!!

- Morgan H

Nissan is a very good vehicle that also has some minor faults.

The one major good fact about my Nissan Altima is that it has a four cylinder which definitely saves on gas. It also a vehicle that has no get pickup or speed, very low to the ground and not good in the snow. All in all I would recommend this vehicle or any Nissan vehicles to someone who is looking to purchase a vehicle.

- Bren R

2012 Nissan Altima: Great Car!!

I absolutely and positively love this car! This car was originally my father's, then my sister's, now mine! It's survived through two minor crashes and worked just great! I really enjoy being lower on the road rather than driving high up in a huge car, and this car is good if you like the lower to the ground feeling too.

- Leah F

my favorite thing is the radio. It bumps and it�s simple and easy

The gas mileage is amazing. It has soft clothes seats that I love because they don't get too hot or cold with the weather. There is some minor problems going on with it right now. For example, not all of the buttons for the windows work, the seat doesn't adjust smoothly like it used to, and recently my AC wasn't working.

- Raquel G

I love the remote key, and the way it drives.

I love the way it feels to drive, the only downside would be it is not that great on gas. The room in the back is still a lot even though it is a two door car. I would recommend for someone who does not mind the gas problem. Lots of trunk space, and the remote key is extremely helpful especially when the weather is bad.

- Bianca R

I just love the car. I would buy another one.

I love my car. It's great on gas I love my rearview camera. It's a great family car. When we go on road trips it drives so smoothly and the kids are really comfortable. I haven't had any issues with my car yet Nissan is a great company. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a car to check out the Nissan company's

- Dwight S

The Nissan Altima has been and still is a very reliable automobile.

I have had no mechanical problems in the six years I have own the car, and it has performed very well. I have taken it on several long trips across the u. S. And it has been quite reliable and comfortable. The Nissan features a sunroof that is nice for air flow and a 25 watt sound system for all the jazz bass I enjoy.

- Gregory S

Very reliable with a personal issue with the height of the car.

The car has been very reliable for me. I have had few if any issues. I just do not like how low to the ground the car sits along with the seat sitting even lower. The other issue I have had is that y automatic locks do not always unlock on the driver side when I use the keyless opener button on the handle of the car.

- Ben S

My vehicle is white. The interior is leather. It is also a push start.

My Nissan Altima is a wonderful car for my age. It is reliable, comfortable, and I love how much space I have in it. I have enough room in the back for my almost 2 year old daughter. I like how it is a push start so it makes it more convenient. Overall I love my vehicle and can see myself driving it for a long time.

- Katie C

Great car! Great gas mileage, comfortable ride.

No issues. Great car for the price. I have 174,000 miles and only normal maintenance since I've owned it. Oil changes, tires, brakes, etc. very comfortable, plenty of room. Great gas Mileage. I've always owned Nissan Altima's every Altima I've owned I keep till about 250,000 miles and they are still going strong.

- Christy W

The car is Glamorous and Stylish !

The car is stylish and glamorous ! I have the white version. The car is super spacious and there is lots of cargo space. The seats are comfortable and easy to clean! My seats are soft. I love the hands free Bluetooth feature and the aux import. The a/c gets nice and cold and sunroof keeps me warm ! Awesome car !

- Brittany B

Nissan Altima Coupe holding up strong

The car is comfortable as a 2+2 configuration. The back seat is not usable if the front seat occupants are tall. Gets decent mileage and have had trouble free maintenance for the first 100k miles. It does feel a little outdated, no touch screen or smartphone connectivity but it was nice when I first bought it.

- Julio P

If you're looking for a great vehicle that guarantees liability and is dependable.

I love my Altima. I haven't had any mechanical issue with my vehicle since my purchase. The Altima is a great car especially for travel purposes. It's definitely spacious enough for a small family, sitting up to 4 comfortably. The black cloth interior is a plus for me, due to the fact it's easier to clean.

- Amber H

Why I like the Nissan Altima

The Altima has been a real good vehicle for me and my family. The gas mileage is good, I have had no maintenance problems. This is my 2nd Altima and I probably would get a 3rd as well..The comfort of the vehicle is good. Also.we. Got a.sunroof put in. There are issues with the brake light on the spoiler.

- Steve S

Reliable, comfortable & great gas mileage.

CVT transmission is very expensive to replace. My transmission went out and it cost me $3400. Then my alternator went out & that was a little over $200 to replace. It is a very comfortable car & quiet when driving on the highway. Great gas mileage. Other than that Nissan makes really good cars.

- Andrea J

Nissan is awesome, gotta try it for yourself.

My Nissan Altima is a reliable car, gas efficient and the size is great. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a car in the future. The features range from basic to advanced and fully loaded. Sun roofs are also available if wanting one. Nissan keeps on improving the vehicles and making them better.

- Cora C

2012 Nissan Altima car review

Comfortable seats. Nice and wide seats for bigger people. Engine is a bit loud. Does not ride as smooth as other cars I have had. But reliable. Manufacturers battery lasted longer than anticipated. Not happy that the car has rusted out in random places. The car has rusted out on the back of the trunk.

- Brittany M

Dependable and great value for the price.

I have had my vehicle for 7 years and performance is still great. The Altima has a lot of room for a sedan. I have plenty of room for my two children in the back seat. I have no complaints about the handling, fuel mileage or quality. I feel safe and confident as a driver behind the wheel of my Nissan.

- Brandy H

Good reliable sedan with plenty of headroom.

The Nissan Altima is a good, reliable car with plenty of headroom. It also looks pretty stylish as well. I haven't had any mechanical issues with the car, and will likely buy another when the times. The car also has plenty of acceleration when needed. That can be important when merging into traffic.

- Marcus L

It is a 4 door white car with a sunroof and a good sized trunk for a small car.

The car has been very dependable and has had very few issues since I have had it. Recently the air conditioning has been going in and out and has been fixed a few times. Also there was an issue with the lining around the sunroof but it was an easy fix. The car drives great and has been very reliable.

- Maggie L

Would definitely purchase this car again and again.

I love this car! I have had absolutely no problems with it mechanically or otherwise. Easy to maintain and keep clean. Drivers very smooth. Has a lot of get up and go which is helpful when merging into traffic. Great car overall. The price and durability of this car definitely makes it worth buying.

- Stephanie K

Reliable and reasonably priced.

It is reliable, but does not drive as smoothly as other vehicles. It does not have the latest technology. It gets me from point A to point B safely. It is big enough for me and family without being too large. It is easy to find parts for my vehicle and maintenance is not as costly as other vehicles.

- Crista C

Nissan Altima is the ultimate commuter car!

This is an awesome car for commuting. The gas mileage is great, the interior is spacious and comfortable, and I have never had any mechanical issues in the 6 years I've owned the vehicle. I believe Nissan as a brand to be very reliable. I appreciate the keyless entry and push to start features.

- Melissa B

Reliable and Roomy (for the driver)

Other than the normal upkeep (ie. brakes, battery, etc.) there has been no major problems with my vehicle. The coupe isn't comfortable for my passengers but it's great for me. I'm over 6 feet and there's enough leg room as the driver. So far it's been very reliable and I'm coming up to 70k miles.

- Jordan L

Great family vehicle for enjoyment for people of all ages.

The Altima drives smooth. It is very reliable. We haven't had any problems at all with the vehicle besides having to replace a cracked windshield. The vehicle has great space inside and trunk space. Great for the kids and adults alike. I would highly recommend this vehicle for an enjoyable ride.

- Cassandra L

I could do a better job, honestly

I don't do great with upkeep. It has been in a few fender benders. The front of the car has dents and scratches. Specifically, the right side on the passenger side door. There has been some accidents where the underside of the car has bangs and scratches. The inside has some stains on the seats.

- Andy M

Eye catching design and color (red).

No vehicle problems. Reliable, comfortable 2- door coupe. Automatic, cruise control, excellent sound system, Bluetooth, tinted windows, cloth seats. Good pick up speed when entering highways or passing vehicles. Exterior paint has held up remarkably over the years with normal washing and waxing.

- Virginia S

A very safe and reliable car.

It is very comfortable, has heated seats, great air and good on gas. It does has some power if needed to pass someone. It is a very reliable car and I have been blessed with no problems. It is a 4 door which makes it easy for someone to get in the back. I would recommend this car to anyone.

- Regina M

Wire shortages in a 2012 Altima

Loved it at first but starting having a lot of shortages in the wires. Gas mileage is decent. It drives smooth.I would recommend a Nissan to friends and family. I am willing to purchase a Altima for my next vehicle. It does have enough get up and go to where we always take my car on long trips.

- Shay T

2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR Coupe

It is a very reliable car with a decent performance. It is slightly small but for the most part, it is a comfortable car. It has dual climate control and other features that would allow one to really enjoy it. This two door car has never given me any trouble in the 2 years that I have owned it.

- Quinton W

An affordable and efficient car to use on a day to day basis

This vehicle is very reliable and has given me very little problems. It is quick and agile and allows me to park with ease due to the size of the vehicle. The air conditioning works quickly and doesn't take a while to cool the whole entire car. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone.

- Mackenzie R

Love the sporty look of my Nissan. It�s classy look never goes out of style!

Love the sportiness of it, easy to drive, small enough to park. It's a sharp looking car. It's known for its durability & long lasting drivability. Problems: had to replace the air conditioner last year and the alternator this year, but still hoping to get another 100,000 miles out of it.

- Kathy J

2012 Nissan Altima - very affordable and reliable.

Had to replace transmission at 130k miles but no other issues. It is a very reliable car. Comfort is good, roomy back seat and great trunk space. It didn't come with Bluetooth but does offer the aux plug. Am/FM radio with CD player. Power windows, locks and mirrors. Seat adjustment is manual.

- Chas H

Perfect commuter car for city or highway.

I have had no problems with the 2012 Nissan Altima. It performs consistently on the highway and as a commuter car in the city. It is always comfortable, even on long drives. It is spacious in the front seating area, the back seating area and in the trunk. Upkeep and maintenance are very easy.

- Chad C

All around good and affordable car

It's great on gas. Upgrades to the interior, like stereo replacement or changing out the speakers are fairly simple. All of the repairs that I have had to get for this car have been infrequent and inexpensive. It's a good and reliable car and would definitely recommend to someone on a budget.

- Raymond W

Bluetooth is my main highlight because I can talk while driving.

It runs very well but the transmission has been acting up. Love the interior and I have lots of room for groceries in the trunk. The car is very spacious and it connects with Bluetooth so I hear my calls on the radio. It's a great car and I highly recommend. It's also a very good family car.

- Jessica V

Greatest performing vehicle

My Nissan Altima runs like new, makes no noise drives a lot better than my old vehicle, you push on the gas pedal and it speeds quick. All I do to it is change the oil and keep up with the tires and brakes it's a great performing car and the parts are cheap when any big problem happens to it

- Hakam S

I like everything about my car but I love my steering wheel controls.

The only problem I ever had with my car was the head unit. The connection via USB was freezing iPod menu. I took it to the dealership about 5 times for the same issue. Of course they didn't fix it and at the end I replaced my head unit with an aftermarket radio which I m happy with this one.

- John A

2012 Nissan Altima Review

Have not had many issues. Drives smoothly, great on gas mileage. Very comfortable. CD player works well, easy to plug in phones to play music. Key fob battery does not need to be replaced that often. Overall a very reliable vehicle with minimal issues. Downside is the car charger is hidden.

- Lisa C

Silver Nissan Altima with 16.5� wheels. Couple dings in it, but nothing major.

My car has always been reliable. I have never had any major issues with it. One small issue would be the tire pressure sensor being really sensitive. I would highly recommend a Nissan Altima to anyone looking for a dependable car that will last for years to come even if you drive it daily.

- Ryan S

I drive a comfortable sleeper: sleek and yet powerful.

I have a 3. 5 sr Altima coupe. I have heated seats and a Bose sound system, 275 horsepower front wheel drive. My car gets about 22 mpg in city. It is a cvt so I keep a decent amount of torque driving mountains. I have leather seats as well. Trunk space is great and I love how my car looks.

- Amanda R

Awesome Car-fun little sporty vehicle

Awesome car on the snow... could be a little higher. I do recommend this car for families. It is a great car and does not have many issues. I have had to replace control arm/ball joints. I thought the parts would be expensive but they are not. I have had nothing but good luck with this car

- Sarah H

The Nissan coupe is very sporty.

Below are just a few of the many thing I do not like about my 2012 Nissan Altima two door coupe are: it is too small, has many blind spots and terrible pick-up. The seats are not comfortable, the doors are extremely heavy and it is terrible on gas. As you can see I am done with this car.

- Sara K

My vehicle is a 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5S

My vehicle does not run good on gas. It isn't very updated and it an older car. It runs good, sometimes it makes noise but I've never has a problem as far as my engine goes. I have had the car for 2 years now and it has been reliable so far. The car isn't so bad, just time to be upgraded

- Ashley C

A lot of features. . Minimal maintenance . High miles and it still runs great.

I haven't had any problems with my car. I take care of it minimum as possible. If something is wrong the light will come on and you get it fixed. I never had a car will a lot of features. When my tire pressure is low it lets me know. Very convenient. I have high miles and it runs great.

- Marie Z

Always drive off with a Nissan.

Nissan's are always at the top of the list when I am in need or want of a car because of their fair pricing, stylishness and reliability, and they do not cost much to maintain or repair when necessary. The only con is their poor ability to withstand impact but this is true if most cars.

- Ashley S

I overall love this car and everything about it.

I have not had any problems with my vehicle. It drives very smooth. Has leather seats, which are very comfortable. The inside of the car also is very sleek in design. The touch screen is a very good addition to the car. I also really love the auto start on the vehicle and heated seats.

- Kylie J

My car is the first car I bought all by myself and I absolutely love it.

I love my car! It is so dependable. I have driven my car across country and have never had any problems. It is seven years old and I do not plan on getting another one for a long time. I will probably buy a newer version of my Altima when I decide to get another car. I just love my car

- Dawn A

2012 Nissan Altima, car review.

I bought my car from an individual with a salvage title. I have had absolutely zero problems. It drives great, very smooth. I like the leather because it is easy to clean up but sadly I did not get the leather with this car, but I do believe it is way more comfortable than the leather.

- Morgan B

Nissan is a pleasure to drive.

I have enjoyed my Nissan Altima for almost 8 years now, it gives a smooth ride and is a pleasure to drive. I get rather good gas mileage even though I do not drive on the highway all that much. I am pleased with the dealership I bought is from because they maintain it very well for me.

- Steven G

Sensible, comfortable, and gets the job done!

This is our second Nissan Altima, it has proved to be a reliable vehicle, with no mechanical issues. Seats are comfortable, and the trunk is huge! We can easily fit two car seats and a passenger in between. I would strongly recommend this vehicle for a family that is always on the go.

- Erica F

Dependable family car. I love it.

Great gas mileage, rides nice, comfortable ride reliable. Bought it in 2013 with the low mileage of 9,000 miles. Have had no real problems because I have the oil changed every 3,000 miles. Mechanics say the car is in great shape and can tell I take care of it in scheduled maintenance.

- Stephen P

My vehicle gets me where I need to go and has been reliable through and through.

The tires don't last very long and I think I need a front end alignment. But it's still a very reliable car and hasn't needed much repair. I've had it for a year but it's driven me to many states and hasn't had any problems. I really like my car, but it could definitely use a tune up.

Altima dependability and comfort.

No problems! Had for 3 years Comfortable and dependable vehicle Fold down rear seats are great. Key fob opens trunk. Large glove compartment, the vehicle gets great gas mileage. Has never had a breakdown only been in for oil change. The Altima has a great reputation for reliability.

- Ken B

Altima, comfortable to drive, good gas mileage.

The Altima is a very comfortable smooth, riding car. It has plenty of room inside and in the trunk, gets great gas mileage, 26-29 mpg. The sound system is pretty good. The one downside is that there is a fairly large blind spot on the drivers side, even with the side mirrors adjusted.

- Lowell C

Pros and cons of my 2012 Nissan Altima.

This car is great compact car good on gas. Only problem is the air does not work. Rides smooth, has a good amount of room. The trunk is huge, I have a sunroof. I love that my car has Bluetooth. Other then my air not working, my car does get hot inside because of the all black leather.

- Amanda B

It has a really smooth ride and is extremely reliable.

AC doesn't work, but rides smoothly and is reliable. The standard features are ok, but it does not have Bluetooth. This is extremely inconvenient, especially in this day and age where everything is Bluetooth enabled. Other than those small inconveniences I really enjoy the vehicle.

- Lex A

Best purchase in my twenties.

My Nissan Altima was my very first car that I bought after college. It is so reliable, has amazing gas mileage, I feel safe in it, and haven't had any issues with it other than normal maintenance or tires. I would recommend it to anyone! Especially the Nissan brand. They are awesome!

- Sarah G

Awesome 2012 Nissan Altima.

The push button start up is always reliable. It has very comfortable bucket seats, even for long cross-country trips. It provides a very quiet ride both on the road /side streets as wells as the highway. It has an attractive and super sleek design style as well as classic color tone.

- Lori G

I have a sunroof, have leather seat, the seat heat up in the winter.

I love my, its roomy, it run very well, it's the perfect color, I have not mechanical problems with it, its very comfortable. Maintenance is very inexpensive, I good gas mileage and highway ride. A lot people love my car as well. I would not choose any other car other the one I have.

- Andrea A

Popular Nissan Altima model.

My Nissan runs really smoothly with over 100, 000 miles on it. With general maintenance I've had no issues with the vehicle. The car I have is pretty common and good for people who want a nice car but can't afford to buy a BMW or something like that. Nissans also have great engines.

- Edward B

Love that the car is basically maintenance free.

Nothing, it is a great car. I have decided that I am an SUV person. I like sitting up higher. The Altima is a great car and I do not h any complaints about the way it handles. Love the sat armrests as the radio and the backup screen is awesome. If. Tap air higher it would be better.

- Gretchen F

Beautiful Performance every time I drive my Nissan.

The performance on the car is great. Runs really smooth. Doesn't need a lot of maintenance to keep its performance. Very spacious trunk and back seats. The key to the vehicle is my favorite part about the car. The key doesn't allow me to look my keys in the car; including the trunk!

- Danielle E

The one most important thing people should know about my car is, it is a dependable car. But for it to be dependable you need to take care of it and do regular maintenance

I like that my car is small but not too small. I can easily get into nyc parking spaces. My car is pretty good on gas mileage which is great. So I don't have to fill up my car often when I'm just driving to and from work during the week. There is nothing that I dislike about my car.

- Maxwell S

Great car lots of speed packed in a small space

Love the push to start and manual and automatic option. Gas mileage could be better. All around great car. I wish it had more features Added but Nissans last a long time. If we had gotten it at a better place I would probably give it a 5. Goes from zero to sixty in like two seconds

- Katrina C

It has bad ratings, but we've had really good luck with ours so far.

I like my car for the fact that is a larger car. It seems to handle well in poor weather conditions. What I do not like about my car is that e90 fuel seems to affect the car's engine. A lot of gas stations in my area sale this fuel; so I have to be choosy about where I get my gas.

- Marsha H

My experience, best car I have ever owned.

My car is great! I do amazing on gas I spend about 40 a month on gas. It's very practical has great space and is wonderful for kids. It drives smooth and is very comfortable. I has a sleek light gray color and looks very nice and professional whenever I have to bring it to events.

- Mike C

Things I do not like about my car.

No Bluetooth connection for apps, backup camera, safety indicators, light fabric on seats and carpet easily stains and hard to clean. Does not include a full-size spare tire. Rear-view mirror is kind of small. Child lock label is hard to see, not sure which way is lock and unlock.

- Gwen L

I like the power of the 3.5 l motor.

The car has a lot of power. Have not had any problems other than replacement of battery and tires and windshield wipers. Car is excellent on the highway on trips and around town. The gas mileage is excellent even with the v6 motor. I get mid 20 on the highway and around town also.

- Wayne C

I love the Altima great family car.

I love the my Nissan Altima it has never let me down. I do the usual maintenance of the vehicle and only thing that I had to replace for the air conditioner compressor and it has over 180, 000 with no problems at all. And it fits 3 car seats in the back of the car which is a plus.

- Holly K

2012 Nissan Altima is one of the best vehicles an individual can purchase

I love my car so much. It is very much reliable and gets me where I need to go with no problem at all. I would buy this car over and over again. It has never broken down on me or caused me any issues at all. The color and drive on it are even more amazing. This car is incredible.

- Amanda D

It is still working well.

It is reliable but is getting old it is almost 10 years old it has problems with the radio it is no longer visible and there is some stuff that is falling apart. There is also a small crack in the windshield that needs to get fixed. Other than that the car is still okay to drive.

- Chris B

Love my car! Highly recommend a Nissan Altima. They are great.

Very little car problems, I bought it used and only needed to pay for an extra key. Had some issues with electronic key but once I got a new one everything was fine. Car is great, and very reliable. I am going to keep this car for as long as I can. Very nice interior for a 2012.

- Katie E

If your thinking about getting a Nissan do it!

My car is great have no trouble with it besides normal maintenance. Would definitely buy another soon. The only thing I say they need to have better paint jobs see lots of Nissans with faded paint throughout time. Other than that it's a great family car or 1st car for your kids

- Victoria G

Altima is decent commuter car.

Haven't had too many problems with vehicle. Front fender tends to be too low which causes it to come loose when parking in front of spaces with concrete barrier. It's a comfortable ride for the most part. The keyless start is a nice feature. Trunk space is also a nice feature.

- Marcia Q

This car: practical but looks good.

I feel the car is very comfortable, handles very well, but needed new tires for the rain, low maintenance with just general oil changes and brakes, good leg room with durable interior, would recommend to others, I feel safe driving this car even when my other vehicle is a SUV.

- Wendy S

The vehicle is great, small and grey. The seats are very comfortable as well.

It is very comfortable and reliable. It gets me to my destination safely. I love it! I love the exterior and interior. The performance is outstanding and exquisite. The features it comes with is amazing and outstanding. I love this car! This car is the best one I have bought.

- Amber V

Options, recommendations, and personal opinions.

Good gas mileage, comfortable. I wish it had more options like auto lighting, aux. The maintenance is very cheap. Currently the windows aren't well managed. The engine runs well. Oil changes are cheap. I would recommends adding more add ins. The windows seem to roll slow too.

- Teresa H

Great car with minimal problems.

Fits my lifestyle and is very reliable. I have had very little problems with it. 90% of the repairs have been for wear and tear. Replaced tires once and brakes once. Other than that it has been oil changes. I only drive approx. 20 miles a day and hardly drive on the freeway.

- Kris H

Nissan Altima's are great, reliable cars

Nissan Altima's are very reliable. They are cost effective, full of drink holders, and have very comfortable seats. The air conditioning and heating work so well even in really hot or cold situations. I always feel very safe when I get in my vehicle. I love my Nissan Altima!

- Andrea U

Back up cam, heated seats, push button start, sunroof, huge trunk.

My car is the Nissan I've ever owned it great on gas. I've had no problems with at all love the start button. It has GPS. So I never get lost great back up cam it's just the best huge trunk four door sunroof heated seats for cold weather surround sound great car all around.

- Carol W

Very reliable, easy to drive, spacious.

Very reliable, have had almost no repairs other than regular maintenance in 6 years. It is comfortable even with 2 car seats in the back. Enough trunk space to fit a large double stroller. I do not have any added features so cannot speak to that. Easy to drive. No concerns.

- Erin H

It's comfy and pretty good on gas it also rides real nice

I love my little Nissan it's mostly reliable but at one point while living in florida my ac compressor broke. That was pretty lame and recently my glove box door gave out. I guess its reliable where it needs to be but all the weird little things breaking is kind of annoying

- Julianne C

Very reliable and comfortable.

It is really comfortable and roomy. It runs smoothly and I have already had it for a few years and it was already a older year at that point so it is lasted pretty long. It is not a fancy car. But it is reliable and it’ll get you from point A to point B. I really like it.

- Johanne C

A comfortable and reliable family vehicle

The Nissan Altima has been a comfortable and reliable vehicle for myself and my family. Requiring low maintenance, the Nissan Altima is an affordable sedan option with upgrades available. I'm hindsight, I may have chosen leather seats over cloth, simply for easier cleaning.

- Casey B

Very dependable and totally reliable.

A great and dependable car. It is very reliably and a perfect family car. Purchased almost 5 years ago and never have had any problems with it. Only routine maintenance and usually wear and tear. Would recommend this car to anyone looking for the best value for there money.

- Robert R

Basic Car, Bad Safety Rating

For a 2012 car it is very basic with no touch screen radio. It does have a push button start, which is a nice feature. It is fairly reliable with regular maintenance. Safety rating is terrible and insurance is extremely expensive (I have no points or tickets on my record).


Very comfortable for its size.

Very durable and solid vehicle. Excellent handling, weight, comfort, and gas mileage. Have been a Nissan fan for a long time. This will not be my last Nissan product. Nissan vehicles are very reliable and require little to no maintenance. Very happy with the Altima.

- David P

My car has been reliable and has been well taken care of since I acquired it.

My Altima has plenty of space in the cabin and trunk. My warranty covered my car up till 100, 000 miles. I just recently went past the 100, 000 mark and no major problems have occurred. It has great gas mileage and smooth handling. I really enjoy spending time in my car:).

- Tracy C

Nissan Altima, the car that can run forever!

I love this vehicle , it's newer, it rarely has any issues. The car is good on miles to my bf and I probably use 40 or more miles a day on it . it's very comfortable and includes many different features . I would recommend it for anyone. It was very cost affordable as well

- Amber M

Happy with my Altima coupe

Very reliable car. Coupe is stylish. Leather interior is nice. Only complaint is the upholstery in the armrest has not held up well and is splitting. Battery life is still holding up and has been for 6 years now. Not much maintenance has been required outside of the usual

- Jasmine C

Runs great as long as you change the engine oil it is a great pick

I have a 2012 Nissan Altima. And it is great. It is a great solution if you are looking for a fuel efficient car. I drove over 113,000 miles on it and it still runs great. Didn't have any major problems. Only thing you need to know about is changing the engine oil on time

- Muhammad R

Need work on it ..slot of work

It need to be replaced converter going out. I would like to fix it up really nice. It very comfortable. But use slot of gas as well. Low profile tire doing payment still. But still have some miner problem that can be fixed. But part are very expensive. So need to save up

- Maria V

I love my car it get me to from and it has not been broken down

I love it because it is a great car and as long as you keep up the maintenance on the car it is great and it is a gas saver cause it take about 30 dollars to fill up my tank. I have not had any trouble with the car since I got it and I have had it for about two years now

- Patrick R

I would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

I have a 2012 Nissan Altima. Leather interior, moonroof, navigation, backup camera, push button star I have never had any problems out of this vehicle. It is super comfortable year around and you feel like you're floating when you drive it. I would definitely recommend.

- Kelly N

My Altima is very smooth.

I love my car the speed and power and smooth ability keeps me pumped. I bought this car as a graduation gift to myself and have enjoyed it ever since. My car is good on gas. It has low mileage and the service is up to date. I haven't had any major problems out of my car

- Sasha T

Amazing and reliable car!

This vehicle is reliable and comfortable. I am a single person, but feel this would be a great small family car. I have had little to no problems other than regular maintenance over the last 8 years. I feel safe when driving even in bad weather. It is truly a great car.

- Kim L

Great reliable car with good gas mileage

I really love my Altima, very reliable and gets good gas mileage. Replaced the radio, the factory one wasn't great. My AC compressor broke at about 100,000 miles and was pretty pricey to fix. At about 160,000 now and that's been the only repair since I got it at 70,000.

- Alexandra H

Crappy car. Transmission needed replaced way too early.

I have not been happy with this car. The transmission had to be replaced before we hit 60,000 miles. In addition to that it seems as if there is always an issue with it when it is in heat or cold. Reliable enough for city driving, but road trips in it make me nervous.

- Brad I

The one most important thing others should know about my car is that it'll tell you what kind of work needs to be done on the car.

I have a Nissan Altima. It's black, its a push start, It's spacious. I don't have any problems with the vehicles. If there were any problems it would warn me through the screen what maintenance needs to be done. For example its popping up with a filter and oil change.

- Arielle H

World's most reliable car.

My Nissan is completely reliable, has nice safety features, a comfortable ride, with good gas mileage, and is nice looking. It came with a lot of electronic standard features that have worked perfectly with no niggles at all. It accelerates well and is easy to drive.

- Amy V

Very reliable and cost effective.

This car has been extremely reliable. I've only had to change brakes and oil on it. In other words, just general maintenance. It's not the most comfortable on long rides as far as the driver seat is concerned. It has decent speakers and an aux port. Very good on gas.

- Brad G

2012 Nissan Altima- why you should get one.

Knock on wood. I haven't had any problems with my 2012 Nissan Altima. It is very reliable. I have not had to replace anything since I bought it, except the tires, but that is normal wear. The air conditioner is extremely cold. The heat works great. It's a great car.

- Jeff H

It gets really good gas mileage and is a great car if you're looking for function. It's not something to buy if you're looking for luxury.

It's a very functional vehicle that gets good gas mileage and is fairly comfortable. It's red with light cloth interior, which I prefer to leather. It has a pretty smooth ride. Unfortunately, it has massive hail damage and it's not as quiet as I would like it to be.

- Christina S

Nissan Altima good mileage car

I love my Altima. One year after I had bought the car the transmission went out. Luckily it was still under warranty and it was easily replaced. It gets amazing gas mileage. That is the number one reason I bought the car. I don't think the seats are very comfortable

- Amy P

The car is all around great for long trips or just a drive around the block.

The only problems I have had with it is the car battery is not all that good the comfort is amazing the standard audio system is great I have over 100, 000 miles and it still runs like it is brand new it turns on a dime and the brakes stop the car almost instantly.

- Blake T

Durable and Reliable Vehicle

I've had to change my transmission and my starter, but that was due to prior owner negligence. Ever since then, it runs perfect and doesn't give any issues. These changes were made about 3 years ago. It is a very durable and reliable vehicle. Would purchase again.

- Anthony O

I love this car. Is very reliable. Great on gas. It gets me from point

I love my car. Great on gas, very reliable. Easy maintenance seriously. The sunroof is an amazing add-on. This car has great performance, and is very fast. The color on this card spectacular. Not to mention the alloy rims brings a nice touch to the vehicle as well

- La S

The vehicle has a unique transmission and can be noisy when shifting.

The car is comfortable, and reliable. However I have found that Nissans are noisy when they're shifting. It get great gas mileage and does excellent on the highway. I love the color. The remote battery dies frequently and can cause issues getting into the vehicle.

- Sue D

It's a plain looking car. I wouldn't say it's very interesting.

It shakes a little on the freeway if you go anything over 65, but otherwise I don't have any issues with it. It's well maintained and cared for. I bought it used and still works great, looks clean, and have had no maintenance issues for the year I have had it.

- Courtney E

Nissan Altima 2012 review, should you get it?

Reliable car good on gas. Well put together and tech survey for the year of the car. Overall good car only problem would be the gas mileage is a little off and gets about 450 miles when filled up all the way. Drive a lot and go through a full tank in about a week

- Marcus D

Push button start. You can't access the gas tank without inside lever.

It's very nice looking and gets me where I need to go overall a average car. As long as you take care of your car. It will stay a good car. Overall the car is great and I love it for kids because car seats fit perfectly. Love mg car and very thankful for my car.

- Sienna L

The good and bad about my Nissan Altima

There is no problems. The performance is great it's really fast. It is also good on gas. It's very comfortable about 5-6 can fit. It has cloth seat which are very comfortable. The best feature is controlling the radio from the wheel. Also it had on dash sensors.

- Jessie T

Great car on gas and fast when it needs to be.

My Nissan Altima drives and runs great. No problems. It has a lot of room if your going to be traveling a lot and room to put bags or anything. It gets good gas mileage. I suggest you get this car because it is great on gas and rides wonderful. You will love it.

- Madison R

It is dark gray, with black interior, undated radio.

The car is dark gray, very beautiful but common, sometimes hard to find in parking lots. It runs very smoothly, I love the interior: it has black leather with heated seats and undated radio, no issues with the car. Had it for a year, make sure to keep up with it

- Raven G

Still kicking at 100000 miles!

It just hit 100000 miles and it's still reliable and wonderful. My front passenger door fills up with water when it rains and I have to let it drain. Sometimes the auto-down on my window doesn't work and I have to reset them. But besides that, the car is great.

- Adrienne R

Great family car with a lot of space in the trunk.

This car is great! It's very spacious lots of room in the trunk, fits 5 people comfortably. Has Bluetooth connection for hands free driving. Smooth driving on streets and highways. Perfect for families. It has soft seat upholstery. Gas mileage is not bad at all.

- Marie C

The push start ignition is very convenient

If key fob dies you cannot use car due to no option for key ignition. Has been reliable, took a 12 hour trip and was a very comfortable ride. Has the option for manual or automatic driving ability. Power windows and locks, cloth seats. Does not have power seats.

- Jodi B

Nissan Altima very reliable

My Nissan Altima has been a very reliable car. I have never had a issue with it. The maintenance is very simple and cheap. I get very good gas mileage. I would recommend for any type of commute. It is very spacious and I have fit plenty of things in it at once.

- Chris N

Great family car. My friends have kids and there’s plenty of room for 3 car seat.

No problems. I love my car. drives well handles well all around great car. The only thing I wish I had in mine is a sunroof. The tire pressure is very sensitive too especially changing in the seasons. Haven't had any issues engine wise so that is always a plus!

- Stacie M

I really like how smooth it drives.

It is a very good vehicle takes me where a need to go, a nice color, good engine, sound is great, very easy to clean, the seats are nice and air condition is good. I love the tires that I got for it. I enjoy washing the car. Food smell can lingerie but oh well.

- Ryan H

It is very beautiful and smooth looking vehicle. I am very satisfied.

I love my car. Very dependable. It rides smooth and is very comfortable. Cool features include the in car Bluetooth hook up to your cell phone. It's quite roomy and pretty decent size trunk. It is very gas efficient. I can go almost two weeks on a tank of gas.

- Anthony K

Family car with great gas mileage.

My Altima is the perfect fit for my growing family. The back seat is plenty of room for my kids. Driving it is so smooth. You have the option to use automatic or manual. Great gas mileage. Minimal upkeep. Also with proximity key I never lock my keys in my car!

- Elliott C

The good selling points for the 2012 Nissan Altima

I love the fact that I don't need to use a key, as long as I have it in my pocket or purse. I don't need key to open the door as lo I have it in my purse. It can be locked from a great distance. If stolen once the can is turn on it can started without the key.

- Joyce G

What my vehicle is known for.

I only had problems with my transmission once and it has been replaced, I do love the look and space inside the car. The sound system is great too. Like that the car is pretty fast. It's definitely not a gas saver though the trunk offers a great deal of space.

- Camille F

Very reliable and affordable with all extras!

I love my Nissan Altima! It has a back up camera, XM radio, remote starter, and a sun roof. It is very modern! Beautiful tan interior and white exterior. Very reliable and dependable! Also affordable! I would recommend a Nissan Altima for everyone at any age!

- Kayla S

Nissan Altima is a reliable car and a great size.

Comfortable, runs well, has camera and seat warmer. Last battery did not hold up well as it should have but not necessarily a problem with car. I drive mostly short distances but when I go on long trips have gotten up to 34 mph; short trips less than 18 mph.

- Judy N

This car has 275 stock horsepower and handles very well.

The only problem I have had was finding an adequate terminal clamp for the positive side of my battery at local stores. My car drives really well and handles well. Slight oversteer sometimes and it is front wheel drive so snow can sometimes create an issues.

- Michelle B

Leather seats, sunroof, Bose stereo system, tinted windows

My 2012 Nissan Altima I have had for about 2 months now has been absolutely amazing. The car drives extremely well and smooth, no issues with the handling. Some of my favorite features include the stereo and the sunroof! Would highly recommend this vehicle.

- Audrey Z

Start up button and backup camera are the two things I like the most!

I like my car performance wise. It saves so much gas that it is cheaper than my other cars. I like how it has a button start up. I also appreciate the back up camera. The only thing I do not like it's how something new is always popping up on the dashboard.

- Omar C

I love my car and I am glad I chose the Nissan Altima.

I haven't had any real issues knock on wood. I do change my oil on time, rotate tires when needed, and replace brakes and rotors as needed. One time I had to replace a caliber. For what they are worth they are good dependable cars. Mine is at 117000 miles.

- Jackie P

Love my car very much I prefer this brand above there.

My car runs great! Excellent gas mileage I make sure to have it serviced regularly to keep up! Oil change tire rotation and filter changed this allows my car to run at maximum capacity, I usually use the dealers as they are more experienced with the brand.

- Chris C

Great car will keep buying this car in future.

Great car. Lots of room in seats and trunk. Drives well. reliable. Has great safety ratings. Would use this as my permanent family car. I would definitely buy another Altima but newer year. You can get them with lots of different packages if you so choose.

- Kourtney L

Great experience - the 2012 Nissan Altima.

The 2012 Nissan Altima, which I bought new in 2013, has been the best car I have ever bought. It has been a very dependable and reliable vehicle. It provides a comfortable ride with great safety features. Great on gas mileage especially on long road trips.

- Felicia R

Good car with very few issues.

It has great horse power and drives well. The transmission has always had a bit of an issue though. It has almost 100,000 miles on it and we haven't experienced any major issues so far. . Other than that, we have been very pleased with the car in general.

- Stephanie M

my car and my mothers car which are the same make and model but different years have very squeaky brakes even after getting them replaced.

My car has a nice smooth ride, cruise control, and an cloth seats to go along with the hot Texas weather. I had to get a new alternator when I purchased the car used in July 2017 but my car lot was really helpful in fixing the problem for me at no charge.

- Tiffany E

Nice backseat and more roomy than it looks.

The only thing I dislike about this vehicle, Nissan Altima coupe year twenty twelve, is the remote key because if it breaks you cannot manually start your car, although you can open it you cannot start it and it is irritating if you have to get somewhere.

- Bianca N

It's a reliable car that will do well for you, doesn't get as good gas mileage as some, and you can't pop the trunk with the car on.

I hate that I can't pop the trunk unless the car is off. It pisses me off regularly. I am also not a big fan of the way it looks, just not pretty or cool. However, it's a reliable car, rarely has problems, gets the job done, and the AC system works great.

- Caleb J

I could say that is safe and quite low maintenance.

i like the car overall, safe, good drive, comfortable. i don't the cvt that much, if that sh** brakes i might as well buy a new car, not very reliable in that sense, although nothing happen until now and it's not as good on gas. but no problems until now.

- leh H

Nissan Altima is a good car.

It is really comfortable, and there are not any cool features. There were a lot of recalls in the beginning, but the car drives well and is reliable. I wish there was a nicer headboard thing, maybe with a screen. Otherwise it is a good car. It works well.

- Tina B

Great vehicle. Very dependable.

No problems, great performance, very reliable, very comfortable and great features for a 2012 model. No problems, great performance, very reliable, very comfortable and great features for a 2012 model. No problems and greats performance for a 2012 model.

- Debbie B

Powerful car in sheep's clothing! It is quick if it needs to be!

The Nissan is a great car. I had new shocks put on it, and they must be high performance because it rides harder now. Be sure to replace them with stock shocks. If I did, it would still ride smoothly. That's my fault though. The car has been really good!

- Tracey F

Best car I have owned and look forward to getting a newer model.

I have had no issues with maintenance since I got the vehicle. The gas mileage is really good. I do not have to fill up as often, even though I drive a lot. It is the perfect size inside and out for me. I look forward to buying another one in the future.

- Jennifer I

The AUX cord and sometimes the CD player is fun but I wish I had tents.

So my vehicle is great and drives fine now that I changed most of its tires, good on oil change but I do need to get new wipers the car sometimes shakes, I have to get a couple more things done to the car that I cannot remember gas is 40 dollars to fill.

- Kay G

The only car there was in site to buy so I got it.

My car runs pretty good in the summer but kind of crazy in the winter the miles are okay for it to be a 2012 never got into a car accident the car still looks new but of course u can tell it is a old model the car is all black a four door you'll love it.

- Aaron W

Vehicle needs to be fixed.

My vehicle constantly builds up water in the passenger door so know I have to pay extra money to get the door fixed the car itself is fine it just needs to be fixed up. The tire is always blowing out so that is extra money on my hands that I do not have.

- Aldine F

My smooth riding pretty car

It's a reliable car gets me from point a to b with little to no issues . it's safe and comfortable and provides a smooth ride. I like the rear camera and GPS that's included. Its has excellent gas mileage and only costs about $35 to fill up the gas tank

- Margaret T

Sufficient for a first car

I feel like it's made of aluminum foil like it breaks really easily lol. I do like my leather seats and often get complimented on the smell of my car. Lately I feel like something is wrong with it. It's a 7 year old car. It gets good gas mileage though.

- Elizabeth L

Sports car details for winter.

Drives great. Front wheel drive makes it difficult in winter and being so low to the ground when roads are not plowed. Leather heated seats are wonderful though in the winter! 2 door makes it very sporty looking but also hard to transport people places.

- Nicole M

Great little car for all.

My car is very fuel efficient has plenty of space for a small car. It runs very smoothly and is very quiet. I like that it is keyless entry and push button start. Factory stereo and speakers are very vice. I do not like that it is a sealed transmission.

- Ang K

Amazing car with a smooth right and great on gas and mileage!

No problems, drives smooth love the seat warmers good on gas, love the push to start! Never any issues and have owned for 2 years, the radio is clear and easy to control, it is easy to tell exactly how many miles you have left as it tells you digitally.

- Alex S

I am satisfied with my car, but I wish I had a newer version.

This car is very dependable. I feel safe driving it, and I love the service technicians at the dealership. I just wish I had a newer model. The newer models have more to offer, namely Bluetooth. The push start on my car is probably my favorite feature.

Have had the car for 5 years with zero problems.

Never any issues with car. Seat warmers are amazing and sun/moonroof is refreshing. Love the slapstick that allows me to choose automatic or manual. Driving is smooth and car informs of any issues on the dashboard. Nice size car. Not small and not big.

- shannon J

Push to start sunroof great on gas.

When I cut my a/c on it starts to run hard. But other than that it reliable, great on gas and a good traveling car. I love the fact that I have push to start and a nice sunroof. I would of thought that it would come with leather seats but it does not.

- Alexis S

It has a large blind spot so you have to be careful to check behind you, not just with mirrors when switching lanes.

I like the large gas tank and the look of the body of the car. I like the sound system and trunk size. I also like the keyless entry and ignition. I don't like that the keys have to be charged and the battery in the keys has to be replaced eventually.

- Rosemary M

Nissan Altima with sunroof.

I have had no performance or reliability problems so far. It is very comfortable, plenty of leg room and space for the family in general. I have love the sunroof. My only criticism is that the doors do not stay open. If I go to get out it shuts on me.

- Lindsay C

My vehicle is very good. The inside screen in one of the interesting details.

Nice car. Run very well. Very comfortable and spacious. Will recommend it to my friends. The performance and the reliability are great! The comfort is one hundred percent good. The inside screen for reverse is one of the new features and very helpful.

- Marie G

Why everyone should drive a Nissan.

This is the second Nissan I have driven and I absolutely love it! They never have problems and are on the affordable side to fix and keep up with tune ups. I would get another Nissan when I need a new car BC they are affordable, reliable, and stylish!

- Cameron B

Altima coupe 2012 car that is a hit or miss.

My vehicle is discontinued now, I drive an Altima coupe. Overall, it is ok, after about 150k miles there will be some problems so be prepared. If I had the chance, I probably would not by another coupe. Maybe it was the dealer from whom I got it from.

- Becky A

Altima: simple but spectacular!

I like this car because it is spacious, with a lot of legroom in the front and back. It is comfortable, and easy to get in and out of. I like the dependability and gas mileage. I like having the keyless entry, and trunk open button on the back hatch.

- Katie G

It has a lot of features that would have been a lot more expensive if I had not bought it used.

My car has so many features that my last car did not have like heated seats, backup camera, sunroof, power locks and windows. I bought it from my grandmother so I really didn't pick it out. It's is a very nice and reliable car with good gas mileage.

- Morgan m

Is really good car, good gas mileage, reliable. Not great winter driving car.

I really like this car. It gets good gas mileage. Have had very few issues with it in the years that I have had it: brakes, tires, battery. The only downside is that it is not great in winter weather. When the time comes, I would get another Nissan.

- Brenda L

It gets pretty good gas mileage for the size car that it is.

It is mostly comfortable and dependable. The headrest does not match where my head rests. It has a smooth ride. It's color is difficult to describe. I would have liked it to have a nameable color but we bought it used so I didn't have that option.

- brenda C

It is a two door car, so getting in and out can be difficult.

The Altima overall is a great car, the only thing I find inconvenient is that it is a two door car, which makes getting in and out difficult. You also sit very low in this car, so as long as you are okay with that then it is a great reliable car.

- Claire S

Dependable and Affordable

I like the gas mileage that my vehicle gets and it as little to no mechanical issues. However, I do wish there was more room between the back seat and the front seats. It is difficult to fit in 5 passengers when child safety seats are needed.

- Alyssa E

Reliable vehicle. Has never broken down on me yet.

Mechanically good still, no issues since purchased 3 years ago. Driver side door panel came off. I used screws and a drill to fix that issue without paying for it to be fixed professionally. Display on radio is messed up, only works sometimes.

- Russell S

One thing people should know is that Nissan Altima's are gas savers.

I have no complaints on my car I love everything about my car. I might want to change the color of my car one day case its gray but I want it in my favorite color which is blue to support my favorite football team which is Dallas cowboys.

- Michelle H

Nissan Altima cars are well made and good on gas.

I have been driving Nissan cars for the past six years. They are very strong made cars. Aside from basic maintenance I have never had any issue with my vehicles. As far as gas goes, it usually cost me about 30 dollars to fill my tank up.

- Valerie J

2012 Nissan Altima a nice car to get you where you need to go.

It is a nice car it is fits 5 people comfortable, had the car for 2 years and had no problems with it. I live in las Vegas and I dove to California and Arizona multiple times and the car ride is smooth and has no problem climbing hills.

- Bobby H

A very dependable low cost automobile and I feel it is rank highly in safety.

It is driving abilities.. Low gas mileage.. Low maintenance.. I love the way it handles when I am on the road driving in snow I love that I have had it for several years and only had to put tires on and change oil no other maintenance.

- Terri E

Nissan Altima: it just works!

My Nissan Altima is just an easy car to own. It drives well, maintains wheel alignment (though I have done some crazy stuff in it), and gets great gas mileage. It is even comfortable for long rides, I took it from Texas to Colorado.

- Jeremy P

The turn radius alone is reason to consider the Altima. The car is attractive, just the right size, and provides a comfortable driving experience.

This has been a great purchase and very reliable vehicle. There are oddities about my particular model including the doors unlocking when you lock and close the doors getting inside. Overall I have been incredibly happy with it.

- Leslie K

Beautiful car great features.

Comfort is great, gas mileage is good the features of the car functional and easy to use. The car is not great in snow conditions therefore we need winter tires and have to change out ever season. The ground clearance is too low.

- Ange R

The steering is smooth and easy for someone who is learning to drive.

My car does make some noise when I brake, but other than that nothing is out of the ordinary. My Nissan is very reliable and very comfortable for me and my family. It has other feature like an AUX cord, a radio, and CD player.

- Destiny U

It is extremely reliable and gets great gas mileage.

This has been a very reliable vehicle since I purchased it. It has run into usual issues of being a 12 year old vehicle, but nothing extraordinary. Maintenance issues include: oil changes, new brake pads, fluid changes, etc...

- Fred H

Overall, my car was an excellent choice. It's safe, reliable, and very easy to maintain

I had the decide on my car very quickly, so I picked the best overall option available. My car is reliable, gets me from point A to B safely, and has a lot of features I like. I wish it had a sunroof and Bluetooth capability

- Gillian O

It's reliable. They last a long time, & barely any problems.

The only problem I have with the car is that it has no bluetooth. Other than that, it runs great! I've had NO problems with the Nissan brand. The next car I plan on purchasing will be the same make, maybe a different model.

- Kelli s

My care has several safety features, like ABS brakes & airbags.

I like that the horn is on the side instead of in the middle of the steering wheel. It's easier to press the horn. The seats are comfortable & the trunk is roomy. What I don't like is the back doesn't have enough leg room.

- Riley c

It is a solid and well used vehicle!

The only complaint that I truly have about my Nissan Altima is its handling in the snow. It is definitely somewhat subpar, and is prone to fishtail on occasion. I do like it is design, interior, and relative functionality.

- Malik G

It may not be the prettiest but it gets me from point A to point B in one piece.

I like the reliability that is associated with my vehicle. I like the amount of space with the regards to both seating and storage that is associated with my vehicle. I do not have any real complaints about my vehicle.

- Ryan S

It is dependable and has/will last a long time.

It is a very dependable car that hasn't needed any major repairs so far. It is the same make as my previous car which I also loved. I prefer It's compact size to that of an SUV or van. I can't think of any complaints.

- Michelle T

My Nissan Altima Car. It's a reliable car you can depend on and count on.

I have a Nissan Altima car and it's from 2012. It's on okay condition. It is silver color, it has 4 doors and don't waste a lot of gasoline. That's what I like the most about my car, that its convenient and reliable.

- jaracza a

Gas mileage is great, maintenance on the car is very low.

It runs smoothly with very little maintenance. It is comfortable, easy to start and unlock the trunk. The car has good acceleration and also good gas mileage. The display shows warnings too often - it gets annoying.

- j J

I feel this is a dependable car that also gives you a decent ride.

I bought this vehicle a little more than 6 years ago. I was looking for a mid sized vehicle that had decent trunk space. I was also looking for a car that was nice to drive and got decent gas mileage to it as well.

- Charles N

Over all the car is great.

Bought the car used and it has given me no problems at all. It is very roomy and comfortable drive nice great brakes great stereo it is a creamy white it is a mid size sedan I am just over all in love with the car.

- Brittany A

It's a comfortable, economic drive! It's an attractive design, still looks new even though it's six years old. I love my Nissan Altima!

It's the best car I've ever had! I've only done routine maintenance (like oil changes) since I purchased it new. My wife has several disabilities but is able to travel comfortably in this car, unlike many others.

- Tim T

The Nissan Altima is a reliable vehicle with great gas mileage for its size.

I like my Nissan Altima because it is a reliable car with solid gas mileage. I dislike that it has some damage to it from being a used car when I purchased it. I dislike it being a bit bigger than would be ideal.

- Rob S

People should know that because it's a smaller and lighter car, if they're on the highway, it can be affected by the wind, but that's not a huge inconvenience.

It's a 5 seater which is nice to drive my friends around in. I can also fit a lot of stuff in the trunk and backseat when I'm moving back to school. There's also fairly good gas mileage for how small the car is.

- Lila G

Great on the Highway! My Nissan

The Altima is a smooth ride. You don't experience all of that wind noise on the highway. Highway miles are great too! I can cross a few states on a tank and a half of gas, maybe 2 once i've driven past 7-8 hrs.

- Autumn W

Gas mileage and safety features are great. The ride is smooth.

I like the roominess and seating. It is a smooth and quiet ride. Great gas mileage. I don't like the digital radio display. I don't like that you can't check the transmission fluid without going to a dealer.

- Beth Z

It's great on gas. I can drive many miles before I have to fill up again

I like how it drives, the features inside, it's reliable and gas efficient. I've had few to no problems with it since I purchased it almost new. Nothing I dislike except it's aging and I've put on many miles

- Aaron E

I love the gas mileage on my 2012 Altima.

My Altima has lasted and been very reliable for me for the past 5 years. I have 200,000 miles on it and it's just starting to need basic high mileage maintenance. I love the quality of my vehicle very much.

- Angie A

The biggest thing I that I think my car would be a perfect 1st car for anyone.

I like my vehicle because it has heated seats so it's great in the winter. It also has a sunroof so you can have extra light come in if needed and of course there are tons of other good amenities included.

- Alexis C

The most important thing people should know about my car, is that I feel safe diving in it. I have experience no trouble driving this car and I feel safe in it.

I love my car. I bought my car used. My car has great mileage and has cool safety features such as the console lights up when diving in the dark and child safety locks. I have no complaints about this car.

- Clara B

Do not buy! Put more money into the car than what it's worth

It has a problem with the transmission that's a common issue and instead of making the part in the transmission to fix it they want you to buy a brand new $7000 part and then pay labor too for a $70 part

- Lauren M

It is stylish and comfortable.

There are no problems ever. I love my car not only does it do the job but it is super pretty and looks great too. I highly recommend this car to everyone because it has no blind spots and it is reliable.

- Taylor Z

It is a great value - excellent features and reliability for the price.

Our Nissan Altima has had no issues. It has a Bose sound system that's excellent, leather seats, sunroof, and can accommodate both my 5ft height and my husbands 6'4'' height comfortably for both of us.

- Victoria N

Comfortable seating. Smooth ride. Picks up nice at take off.

The ride is soft, does not vibrate, feels comfortable nice viewing in all directions, engine is reliable, not too powerful, needs some warming in the cold days.I don't know that i would change anything.

- Nancy L

Nissan Altima: Only One Problem

In general the car has run well throughout the years I have owned it. I did have to have the transmission replaced about 2 years ago. It was covered under the warranty so it did not cost me anything.

- Necole Z

Altima is a reliable family car.

It has been very reliable. I have not had many issues so far. However, the clock/radio screen goes out. It is either completely out or parts are out. It seems to be worse during hotter temperatures.

- Carrie T

Great gas mileage from a dependable, comfortable vehicle.

It has been a dependable, reliable car. The maintenance has been decent requiring no major repairs. Gas mileage is the best feature as it is comfortable to ride and goes far on a single tank of gas.

- Brian L

The most important thing is that it is my baby.

I love that it is a sports car without the stick shift. I love the two doors instead of four doors. I love how smooth it drives and it is my absolute dream car. I do not have any complaints at all.

- Katie B

A great and reliable ride for the inexpensive price.

I like the horsepower of the v6 engine. I like the roomy interior. I like the smooth and silent ride. I dislike the blind spots and also how difficult it is to clean the front and rear windows.

- Marianne R

Vehicle is fun to drive and seems to have a luxury feel.

It has over 100, 000 miles, so there are minor wear and tear such as small oil leak. It is comfortable and roomy. Does seem to have a cvt transmission problem if you try to accelerate too quickly.

- Adele M
