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.
