Seats are not comfortable.

My Altima is not something that I would buy again. Let me explain. Overall it is not a horrible car it gets pretty good gas mileage it does drive well it is reliable. As someone who puts 30 to 50 thousand miles a year on a car it is doing pretty well. Why wouldn't I buy it again it is not comfortable well the seats adjusted multiple ways I have not been able to find a comfortable setting for me. Also I never seem to be high enough in the car where I have the best visibility. For me there are lots of blind spots especially when backing up. I feel like this car is truly made for somebody who is taller I am 5-6. There is a ton of trunk space however I do not understand why the engineers made it so that is closing the trunk means you cannot have anything stats to the top on the sides the bar goes down into the trunk the staking away from the space. Overall the car has a lot of room for passengers also I have put 5 full grown adults including myself into it and we weren't cramped. In general the Nissan Altima is a quality car. Pretty good gas mileage lots of room for passengers lots of room in the trunk. However comfort for me is a major downer and since I drive anywhere between 40 and 100 hours a week it is extremely important to me.

Confident and comfortable.

This is a spacious, comfortable sedan that handles great and has truly excellent fuel economy. The technology features are outstanding and very user friendly. I honestly love everything about this car. I have had it for about a month, and no complaints to report. Accelerates well off of stops, does not feel cramped with passengers, and has ample trunk space. I had a great experience with the Nissan dealer that I worked with to purchase the car, and will be taking it back to them for routine maintenance like oil changes and such. This car gets better gas mileage than my old hybrid! This has been a fantastic car so far for commuting, but would be very comfortable for longer trips as well. Would definitely recommend the Nissan Altima. My boys and I took a 2000 mile trip and never felt uncomfortable. Gas mileage is terrific. On the highways close to 40 mpg. My lease is almost up and I plan on getting another Altima in the future.

Things to think of when creating the next year models

I save gas. It takes off really fast like I'm driving the 3.5 engine which it's a 2.5 engine. The features on the car are nice. I hate the fact that I have no turn off or on switch for my fog lights. I love that it is push button start. The trunk is big as well as the glove compartment. The vehicle has extra cup holders on the door panel which are good. Spacious room. The AC blows really good which goes 360 around the car and I don't even have the AC panels in the middle console like more expensive vehicles have. The back passengers can feel the air like their in the front seat. The inside lights are neat which they are located on the side ceiling area. I hate the headrest has a lean forward shape. They need to make headrests curve U-shape or have the headrest align with the vehicle chair. I love that my back seats can fold down together when I have to carry long items I have extra room instead of the trunk space.
