2016 Nissan Altima review

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

This car has everything, comfortable seats, great stereo, and amazing handling. After just a week of owning mine we went on a 2,000 mile road trip. Started without a hitch, no weird noises, no smells, amazing. Have you sat in the same seat for more than 36 hours? Believe me I have and this was the first time that I was truly comfortable for the entire time. I am very short, 4'11 to be exact and I am able to move my seat to safety reach the pedals and also not be to dangerously close to the steering wheel. This is a big factor when I look at cars. Most cars I have to be so close that if I was ever in an accident I would most definitely be killed by the airbag. The car has the backup camera which is awesome. I love being able to look straight ahead and see what's behind me. Still have to look to the sides but it really is a big help. The car has many alerts and lets you know anything that is wrong as soon as it happens, even lets you know to get gas when you have 70 miles left! On the dash it has a screen that shows tire pressure and miles, distance, trip and other crucial features, of course its Bluetooth enabled. No more hands on your phones! It will never read you your text messages. The motor is super quiet. It has the touch start. I can't even imagine having to carry keys anymore. The cool thing and I found this out about 3 days after buying my car, if your key fob goes dead and you need to leave you can push the key fob into the start button and it will start! I was freaking out after the battery died wondering how I would even get to the store to buy batteries. I give this car a 5 star review it has surpassed every expectation I had in a car.

Overall view of 2016 Nissan Altima Sedan 2.5

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5

At the 40,000 mile mark I needed a new transmission. I didn't cause this. Nissan paid for it because it was covered under their 3 yr/60,000 mile warranty. Overall, I love the car. It has really good gas mileage. The Bluetooth connection in the Altima is super strong. Although, sometimes when I turn the car off, my phone will connect back to the Bluetooth and I can't hear my callers. The car is roomy up front. The backseat could use a little more leg room. I took my car to get an oil change and the mechanic told me that my 'car was very smart.' It does have an informative dashboard. It alerts you to tire pressure... them identifies which tire is the issue. It tells you how long you have left on the tires you have. It has a feature that adjust for certain road conditions. Its push to start. It has a backup camera, which I've become dependent on. It handles curves well. The sound system is adequate. Although, I wish the bass didn't sound so fake though. The power seat controls on the driver seat are satisfactory. No complaints there. I like how the push to start feature won't let you lock the doors if the fob is in the car. If you press the lock button on the driver's door and the fob is inside the car, you'll hear a triple beep warning. Climate controls are average. Today was 100 degrees. Road with the windows rolled down for about 5 minutes, In order to get some of the heat out, then turned the air on. It got comfortable in the car after about 7 minutes.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV features and thoughts

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

My Altima is 2 years old. It has been 100% reliable. It has always started right up, even in the middle of winter in -10 degree weather. The head unit can pair to phones using Bluetooth for playing music and making calls, and can access Siri on iPhones, but it DOES NOT have Apple CarPlay. Voice commands can be used to control the in built GPS navigation and other head unit options even when not paired to a phone. You can also plug in your phone to play music and make calls over the car's speaker system. The car has blind spot indicators, and cross traffic indicators when backing up as well as a backup camera. My Altima DOES NOT have assisted braking. I have material seats. The seats and steering wheel are heated. I have remote start. The gas mileage is great. I often travel to the District of Columbia from eastern Ohio via the Pennsylvania Turnpike and other highways, and in the summer can get over 40 mpg easily. My trip is usually 640 miles there and back and again during the summer months I can make the trip on one tank of gas. My biggest complaint: I change my own oil, and the placement of the oil filter is not the most convenient, requiring some parts of a plastic guard under the front end being removed, and it is somewhat difficult not to drip oil on top of other guard pieces.
