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.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV gets around

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I really haven't had any problems with my Altima. There have been a couple recalls but they were taken care of quickly. I have the extended service plan so I do not pay anything anytime I bring my car in for regular maintenance or any issues that have come up such were very minor. The Altima is extremely reliable, efficient and economical. It zips around town and is great on the freeway too. Great gas mileage, super comfortable inside, lots of legroom front and back, roomy trunk and a sleek look. I accidentally went off roading one day and it did surprisingly well for a 4 cylinder sedan! I'm impressed, so much so that this is my second Nissan Altima. Great car all around!

Great car but with Crappy tires

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

My husband loves the Altima. I personally prefer a larger, taller vehicle. The features are nice. It has power windows/seat adjustments, Bluetooth, backup camera, blind spot indicators, and automatic lights. It had a couple of recalls but for simple things that were easily fixed by the dealership. It is gas efficient for a vehicle of its type. My biggest complaint about the vehicle is that we have had to replace the front tires twice in the just over 3 years we have owned it. Because of the size of the tire, the treads are narrow to start with, we've had two flats and the tires go bald incredibly quickly compared to other vehicles we've had.

Nissan Altima; highly recommend! I love the keyless entry and the eco button!

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I love my car ! It has enough room for my family and friends, it also has a spacious trunk to store bags and such. I love my keyless entry and my push to start ! So my keys can stay in my purse all the time! My car may not be the fastest or biggest car. But I can save gas whenever I want by pressing the ECO button whenever I go on long trips ! My car has gotten me from Tennessee to Maryland so many times since my husband is in the military !! I love it so much and I definitely recommend it

- Sarah K

Beautiful economical car.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I love my Nissan. It is such a reliable car. It's a gas saver as well. My car has so many things I love about it. One of them is the backup camera. It is very helpful, when I cannot see what's behind me or how far back I should go. I also love the sunroof, that is one of the top things I wanted my car to have and it's amazing. Another thing that I love about my car is that it has sensors to tell you when there are cars in your blind spot. A light will turn on and I will beep too.

- Karla G

Love my Nissan Altima sv car.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I love my car. It has all the safety features I like. I love blind spot warning, rear view camera, and cross spot warning. I also like the way it drives and handles. I love having a CD player. I use it all the time consistently. The car is very comfortable. I like having a driver power seat. I also like having a spare tire which I needed to use this week when I had a slashed tire.

- Janice R

Nissan Altima 2016 Very reliable vehicle.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

Very truthfully in the three years I have owned the car I have not had any issues with it. I just did the brakes for the first time. I change my oil once a year because I have full synthetic in it. I drive the car to work everyday and go on a trip once a month to another state. The car has not had any issues at all. I highly recommend this year vehicle.

- Rachel H

An interesting detail is the blind side sensors

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

My 2016 Altima drives ok. It is ok on gas, though it could be better. In the 3 years since I've had it there have been no major issues with the car. There have been several recalls. One had to do with the transmission. The. Comfort level is ok, nothing to go into too much. I am fond of the navigation system as well as the Bluetooth.

- Jean S

Making Bluetooth Phone Calls

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

It is not easy to make a call through the Bluetooth feature. There is no way to set up favorites and so you have to go through all of your phone numbers each time you want to place a call. There seem to be some blind spots at the front of the car that you have to get used to and will after driving for a while.

- Laura S

2016 Altima, solid vehicle, minor issues.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I am very happy with this car overall. I have had no major problems so far, and it continues to perform well. It continues to get good gas mileage as well. The navigation package added the 7' screen, which I feel is necessary. The catch is, they charge $150 for a map update since they use a proprietary system.

- Theodore K

Nissan Altima sv. The rear view camera and remote starter. It's so convenient

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

It doesn't have any problems from the start.After 2 years through the receiver for the remote stopped recognizing it. Other than that I've had no issues at all. The miles per gallon is exactly what they said it would be. Cost to maintain is reasonable. A well built car that's for once what it's advertised as

- Pat D

Wonderful steering, great response time!

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

As a busy mom, I adore my Nissan. The response time. On the freeway is amazingly fast. I wish there were seat warmers... First world problems though and I am beyond grateful for this vehicle. It has back vents, which is perfect for the passengers sitting in the back seats. Great gas mileage!

- Kimberly M

Why I wouldn't buy a Nissan

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

The Axle and suspension are not good, they tend to have a lot of recalls on these vehicles, they are gas efficient, the body style is big for no reason, the shocks are not good you feel everything. I have the 2.5 SV but it's overrated. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't buy a Nissan

- Sh E

I have the Pearl White Altima with a sunroof and the back windows are tinted.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

It's a very reliable car. Drives great and is really comfortable. Lot's of safety features and I Live my sunroof! I was always a Volkswagen person but after buying my Altima I will continue to stick with Nissan. If you are looking for a reliable nice car please try the Nissan Altima!!

- Heather G

Love my car and always feel safe when traveling.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I love my vehicle. I drive a lot during the week to work and it Drives amazing and always feels safe. Big enough for my small family and we travel a lot to see family. It is totally reliable and feel safe while being able to get to another location. I love the style and how roomy it is.

- Seve F

There is mood lighting in the inside of the car which I find really nice.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

The features are great, blind spot feature is the best. The one thing I don't like is the console part, it looks kind of outdated. The coloring is a weird orange. The seats are very comfortable and the outside looks very slick. I recommend everyone to try to get the sunroof. Very nice!

- Salvador G

Saves on gas, moonroof and Bluetooth.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

My Nissan Altima is amazing on gas, comfortable, drives good, has a big truck. I love that mine has a moonroof. I love that it has Bluetooth, navigation, Auto start. You can open the doors without the key. Again, I repeat the gas on this baby is amazing. Gas saver for sure!

- Sara C

Already starting to mess up

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I've not had it long and I already had to buy a new battery, terminals, & breaks. It doesn't always drive the smoothest either. The features inside it are really nice. The Bluetooth and auxiliary are both good. It's bigger than most cases, you can fit a lot in the trunk.

- Hannah J

Almost a Great Car: Sunroof Issues

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I've had problem with flooding. After taking it to the mechanic it was determined to be an issue with sunroof being clogged up. After researching it seems to be a problem for Nissan Altima's with sunroofs. Other than that, the car runs well. Can go 0-60 mph quickly.

- Ashanti J

My Nissan has blind spot warning which helps out a lot

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I have a Nissan Altima SV it has blind side detection, sunroof, and rear back up cam. This car ride very smooth. It's is very reliable and comfortable fits my family well. Really don't have any problems with the car. Only just the main maintenance oil Change etc.

- Courtney T

My car averages 30 mpg. It's very quiet but has the power.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

It hesitates at take off sometimes but is very reliable. The seating is comfortable and has massive trunk space. My car features dual climate control along with Sirius XM satellite radio. Only downfall is I didn't go for leather seats. Gas mileage is amazing

- Whitney D

Gas mileage is really great on the car it's a nice feature

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

The car doesn't have all the bells and whistles like I would like for it to have. It doesn't have the best stereo system. Or the 360 camera view for driving. The car also doesn't have maps or Apple play build into the car. I'm also tired of having a Nissan

- Jennifer V

Upgraded from compact to sedan.

2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV

I love the sporty look of the sv series, I love the size of my vehicle, the reliability of it, the gas mileage I get, and the features of the car(backup camera and sunroof). I upgraded from Nissan sentra to the Nissan Altima and I have no regrets about it.
