Highway mileage is excellent.

I really love my car. Its reliable, comfortable, and is excellent on gas. At first I was not into cars I am more of an SUV type of person but I had to be reasonable wallet wise. The only thing I can say about the car is its pick up when you fully don't break. It will feel like the car is struggling to get back to the speed it suppose to, but it doesn't stay like that. All in all it's a very good car. Nice sound system, Bluetooth audio and phone, with paddle shifter for the sr model in which I have. If your going to go with Nissan it's a very good choice they work with you and there service centers are excellent.

It is roomy enough for a growing family.

We have only had our Altima for two months but during that time we have come to love it. My husband is 6’2” and we have two children in car seats. One child is in a rear facing seat, my husband is able to have the rear facing seat behind the driver's seat and have the seat in a comfortable position for him. The car is roomy enough that a small adult is able to sit in between the two car seats! One feature we are very pleased with is the way the car handles; it is smooth, quiet and picks up speed nicely. The trunk is also very roomy, it is great for a family that needs to take lots of things with them!

We love our new Altima! It is comfortable, roomy, and the price was right.

Our new updated Altima is just right for us. It is comfortable and easy to drive. There is a lot of legroom front and back and it has a good sized trunk. I love the back up camera and Bluetooth . We are getting 40 miles to the gallon on the highway and almost that with city driving. The sun visors slide on a rod when using them on side windows. The headlights afford a lot of visibility at night. We have another older Altima (with 175, 000 miles!) That still runs great and when we purchased the new car you could just get in and drive it without looking everything up.
