Amazing car for the price! Great fuel economy and enhanced safety features make this car one of a kind!

I absolutely love my Altima! It's spacious, comfortable, and drives extremely smoothly and quietly. The backup camera is extremely useful for anytime I have to reverse my car. It makes pulling out of my driveway or a parking spot THAT much easier and I can ALWAYS see what is behind me and how much room I have. The backup sensors/ camera also make parallel parking a breeze! One of my favorite features is the lane change lights on both side-view mirrors. When I am changing lanes, they will light up if I am not clear to go(for example if I have a car in my blind spot), though as soon as it is clear the light goes out and I know it's safe for me to merge lanes safely. The look of the car is beautiful and sporty, yet elegant and sophisticated. I am proud to drive my car and have others see me in it. It has all the bells and whistles! You can move the driver's seat into the perfect position and be completely comfortable even for an 8 hour trip like the one I took this past summer. I get incredible gas mileage and love that I can look at the dash and see exactly how many miles of gas I have left. Also, the tire pressures are displayed on the dash so if for any reason I ran over a nail and had a slow leak, I would immediately be alerted to the loss in tire pressure, allowing me to get somewhere safe before it ever went flat. It is Bluetooth compatible and I can make and answer calls using the buttons on my steering wheel when my phone is connected. The last thing I will say is that I love to be able to just press the "start" button instead of having to use a physical key. As long as I have the key fob in my purse/pocket, I can get right in and press START!

2018 Altima SV- It’s a Dud

Pretty disappointed In this car considering it was recommended by several people. Picked up off the lot new and now have 14,000 on it. To be fair the car is a company provided vehicle and there very few upgrades although it’s an SV. Problems have been many, car smells hot every time you park it, cruise control did not work ( only partially now), emergency braking / collision avoidance system turns itself off continuously ( especially in traffic or when driving in left lane by a partition), weather stripping came out on a section of the inside of the windshield, for a while leaked oil and finally lits extremely gutless when going up a hill or mountain pass. Not particularly comfortable on long drive even with zero gravity seat. The technology that came with this car is dated and lacks any appeal even over the most basic cars. The only redeeming qualities of the car are the milage and roominess.

Nissan Altima 2018 White color cloth material. This is my Honest review.

I really like my vehicle but I'm not a fan that it does not have cup holders in the back between the driver seat and the passenger seat. It has then on the doors but it does easily get forgotten and sometimes opening and closing the doors knocks it done. But I really do like the quality of the cloth material. Super durable and it seems stain resistant. Trust me I have had pets, and kids in there. Since we only have that one vehicle, it gets used a lot. It really saves on gas. Believe it or not but it's been almost a year and a half but the interior still looks new. Granted that the car gets detailed every 3-4 months. That still isn't very often and the car has taken lots of use especially since my husband also used it for work. It is also roomy. I also sometimes have 2 car seats that fit nicely. I really hope this review helps someone who is interested and considering a Nissan Altima
