After 2 years and 38,000 miles: Loving my Altima!

I went out planning to buy a Ford Fusion. I test drove a Fusion, Impala, Accord and Camry. The seats in the Altima were the most comfortable. On long trips it seems to support my back well, and I can drive with no back pain. It handles great, and the gas mileage is amazing! I thought the 38 mpg highway was far fetched, but I've gotten that and better on the highway. If I hold it to about 70 mph I can make 40 or 41 mpg. The 4 cylinder is rated at 180 horsepower, and it seems to have more than enough power. I was unsure of the CVT transmission. It seems odd not to feel the car shifting, but after a short time I decided I like it better. When the radio isn't on you'll sure hear the engine though, but that's the same with all 4 cylinder cars. I'm in Missouri, and it handles the snow pretty well. The bluetooth works great for phone calls. My only problem is I gave it access to my text messages when I set it up. Don't do that! If you get a text people get a rude auto-reply from the car saying I'M DRIVING! You need to turn it off each time the car is started. I can probably fix it by re-installing the app, because it doesn't to that with my son's phone. The sound system is good. I can do pandora or iheart through my bluetooth, or run mp3s off a thumb drive. The only annoying thing is, after Nissan performed a "fix" on a recall issue for the passenger airbag, there is always a light on if there is no passenger. I usually don't notice it but there are times I consider putting black tape over it.

My 3rd (and best) Altima

I love the Nissan Altima. I had a 2005, a 2010 and now I have the 2015. The interior space and ability to see 360 degrees from the drivers seat is what I have always loved most about Altima's. Plenty of room in the back seat for a car seat and a very tall toddler. Plenty of trunk space fits a load of groceries PLUS my golf clubs. This new Altima has the blue tooth (which will interrupt anything coming through the speakers when a call comes in even if you have an external device plugged into the aux port). Throw this baby down in "sport" mode and she rips along pretty darn good for a 4 cylinder. I love it. I don't think I'll ever buy anything other than Nissan.

Great daily driver with an appetite for fun

I bought the Altima as a daily commute to school. The car does extremely great in daily driving situations and manages to please out on the highway and on twisty county roads. The car handles great and has a comfortable ride at the same time. Has given me zero problems so far, I've owned it for 7K miles. The interiors are good quality and the seats are really comfy

This car is the worst car I have ever owned. I WILL NEVER, NEVER, BUY NISSAN AGAIN. I have so many problems: LOUD gas sloshing inside the gas tank. It is like driving with a small ocean in the rear of my car. I hear wave of splash side to side, specially, driving on slow speed, slowing down to a stop, putting in reverse. After my car is parked, I still hear the splashing inside the gas tank till it settles ( for a minute or two) I have had vibration to steering wheel, seat, pedal ever since I had my Altima, I was told by my dealership ( MOSSY NISSAN IT WILL GO AWAY IN TIME) what a bunch of bull....! It has not gone away! it only got worst. Gas tank problem, nothing they can do, it is up to Nissan. other problem continues: transmission very noisy, I feel jerking , bouncing while driving on low speed and want to slow down or stop. It makes noises down hill, RRRR noises. I want Nissan to buy this car back. I only have 3,800 miles cannot stand driving this car. it is a piece of junk. I had to give a star to write the review ... it disserve -0

This car is a LEMON. Been to the dealer 6 times because it will not steer straight and pulls. The tires were replaced,front end aligned 3 times. Rack replaced and still pulls and drifts. Nissan North America has fought us all the way, lied at arbitration and generally uncooperative. We won the arbitration but had not sent Nissan NA a registered letter so instead of getting all our money back it was reduced by about 20 percent. If you have a LEMON be careful to follow your states lemon laws to the T. Don't expect much cooperation from NISSAN CORP. Buy another Brand.

What would you rate a car that you can not drive? What would you do when dealership runs away from providing support/resolution? How do you feel when you think of trade in/get rid of a car with these known issues for a new one and when someone with financial condition ends up buying your junk?

This car is super comfortable for long trips. On hwy only I've managed up to 42 mpg a and avg. 35 City miles average 18-20. Or took 4 mo. to get used to the cvt. It is a good looking car and I get a lot of compliments from passengers. The sound system is wonderful and our handles well. The cons... It is noisy and the engine sounds awful sometimes. Not like its running bad just cheap sounding. Overall it's a great car.

If you buy a 2016 Altima SV with the Navigation package be aware that the radio has terrible, non-existent reception in the upper AM frequencies. Nissan is aware of the problem and it affects ALL SV,s with the Navigation Radio, and they say that this is NORMAL for this car and they will not do anything about it. Nissan states that there is no other manufacturer for the radio that will fit into the SV and there is NO fix for the problem. Update: July 7 2016. Nissan is sending the Regional Tech Support to meet with me next week to listen to the radio and determine if there is anything that can be done to fix it.

I traded in my 2015 toyota camry hybrid for the altima. The trunk and interior space is rommier. Controls are easier. Ease of getting in and out much better. And the mileage difference is minimal. The only thing better on the toyota was the warranty, but hopefully I wont need that.

Bought our Nissan Altima band new 2015. When we were not using it on a day to day basis, it was great - fuel economy and comfort wise but when we started using it on a daily basis it started to have problems. At 3000 miles, steering pump gave up on my husband while he was driving. Took it to dealership. Dealership was proactive and got the steering pump fixed. Car had to stay for four days but it was okay they gave us a loaner anyway. Now barely two weeks after getting the car back, I was driving to work and the steering wheel gave up on me almost causing an accident. I know the dealership is gonna do the best they can to fix the car but I do not feel safe in that car anymore. This has happened twice, a Nissan truck and now a Nissan car. I don't think I can rely on the brand anymore. Ours might be an isolated case but hey Nissan, step up on checking the safety of your vehicles when they leave manufacturing. I paid for safety more importantly than comfort - I want to get to work as a nurse and not as a patient.

Well balanced car for the $$

We were not in the market for a new car, but after driving a 2015 Altima S for a week as a rental, we fell in love with it and decided to get one. We opted for the 2016 due to the sportier design changes. Also the the back up camera came standard now with this model (previously was an option). For the price, the S had a perfect balance of things we were looking for: Great gas mileage, smooth quiet ride, large trunk, exceptional acceleration for a 4 cyl., great visibility, and we loved the way the dash was designed with all the key features (electronics, warnings and entertainment screens) were laid out. We have not had the car for more than a couple of weeks so cannot comment on maintenance and repairs, but so far we are pretty happy with our purchase. Seats are very comfortable, although I almost liked the fabric on the 2015 better (they have upgraded to a different type of fabric and design). We average 29-30 MPG commuting to work mixed city/freeway driving and long freeway trip netted 39, but I'm sure we could do better if we maintained the minimum speed limit the entire time.

Nice Standard Car

I have a 2.5 S the sound sucks, you have to upgrade to a 3.5 SV if you want Bose speakers, no remote start, no sunroof. Its perfect if you just want a standard car that looks nice from the outside.

I was interested in good gas mileage. the posted 39 on the window seems to be too high, but i am getting a combined 31 or so, which is also posted. I am very happy with that. The interior is roomy and comfortable. I would encourage leather seats. I did not get that option - it was not really offered, but I have been in one since and it seemed to be more comfortable. I am not overly excited about the bluetooth-technology package. I drove a Kia Optima before and I much prefer the Bluetooth there. The Altima drives very well. The steering is tight and reminds me of a german car. The AC is very nice for a Texas driver. The blind-spot indicator works very well. The standard warranty is undervalued. It seems like most manufacturers are getting away from extended warranties. I wanted the Altima because I have owned Nissan in the past and know it is a quality vehicle and not usually a maintenance concern, but the 5/10 warranty offered by Hyundai / Kia is a nice thing. Overall I would say this is a very good buy. I would recommend it if a friend was asking me.

Loving our Altima at 5000 miles

My wife and I are very pleased with our Altima, now almost 6 months old with 5000 miles. After looking at several cars of this type (Accord, Camry, Sonata), it seemed like the best value, and it has not disappointed. The responsive 4-cylinder combined with the CVT transmission makes for smooth driving both in town and on the highway -- and the best cruise control system I've ever had. As noted by others, highway mileage is phenomenal at 40+ mpg, and we average close to 30 around town, about 32 or so overall. It's not the quietest car of this type, but certainly quiet enough. Both the suspension system and the seats are comfortable without being mushy, and cornering is excellent. My wife is just 5 feet and needs good, high seating for visibility, which the power seat in the Altima does better than any other car of this price that we looked at. (Most others at this price had to be jacked up to raise the seat.) The controls are pretty standard, nothing remarkable, but very functional; I really like having lighted controls on the steering wheel for electronics and cruise. We have the middle electronic system, with Bluetooth and a backup camera but no navigation. The backup camera is a bit blurry, but it has nice clear distance indicators to help with backing into a parking space. And the Bluetooth and USB systems work great for our smart phones and iPod. One small complaint on the heating and a/c: when I turn off the fan and then turn it on again, the a/c automatically comes on which seems odd. Both heat and air work fine, however, as do the defrosters. So far so good with our 2015 Altima; truly a good value.

2015 Altima 2.5 S - squeaky brakes

4/27/16 update - Went to Nissan dealer in Gardena, CA this morning and spoke directly to the mechanic. Now he knows about brakes. They were nice enough to put my car up on the rack and take the back brakes off. Usually this is where most of the noise is coming from. I had my husband with me of course to really understand all this. My husband tape recorded the squeaky brake noise. Mechanic explained to me that everything looks good. Now regarding the squeaking noise when the car is cold, he said around 2013-14 Nissan was using brakes that had asbestos material in it. Per Federal regulations, Nissan stopped using this and switched it with copper material brakes. Lots of people are complaining about the squeaky brakes. They can lubricate the situation but it is only temporary. Unless you get squeaky brake noise on the street and everytime you brake, then this is another issue. My issue is only squeaky brake noise when the car is cold. I don't know if any other new cars 2015 on are having the same squeaky brake problem? Before I seriously think of trading my car in for a Camry, I might try later on to switch out the brakes with another better quality brand (not Nissan) and see how I like these. Dealer will only use Nissan brand. Purchased my 1st new 2015 Altima and after 10 months when brakes are cold they squeal loudly where ever you are. It is so loud everyone turns their head to see what car is making all that noise. Both in reverse and going forward. It sounds like you need new brakes but the car is only 10 months old. I had it checked by mechanic and they said they have received lots of complaints of squeaky brakes. Had the dirt blown out of them. Noise stopped for a few weeks but continues a year later. I was told some people have changed out their brakes but loud squeal noise continues. I am going to take it to a couple more places and get their opinion. If this noise does not stop, i may trade it in for a Toyota Camry. Very disappointed.

Pleasantly surprised!

First time ever leasing a car, and my first new car. Got it the end of Sept 2015. I went into the search wanting a base model Camry or Accord, but I did drive the Altima because a friend was a salesman there, but I liked the Camry better. Then I took the wife. She wanted the Altima because she liked the styling and how the dealership treated us, and the manager was going to lease us a top-of-the-line Altima SL for just a little more than the base model. It's a very pretty pearlized white, hard loaded. So we compromised and got the Altima. lol. Happy wife, happy... however the rest of the saying goes. The car has grown on me a lot. The fuel mileage on road trips is incredible, it's been getting in the 40's! Has plenty of power, very comfortable seats, road noise isn't as low as the Camry was, but it's quiet enough. Feels solid and stable, tight, corners well, interior materials feel good and look nice. I like driving it. The car is very comfortable for me, I'm 6'5" and 250. Plenty of room and comfort. Many cars that have sunroofs don't have enough headroom for me, but this Altima has plenty of head room, leg room, and lots of back seat room, even when I have the seat back. The CVT is... interesting. On the highway it's awesome. Set the cruise and go. Because it's continuously variable there's never any downshifting. You can watch the tach move up and down on hills, but you don't feel it, it's very smooth. You can hear the engine pick up rpms a little bit but it's not obtrusive or loud. So I really like it on trips. And did I mention the gas mileage is great?? We just got back from a trip up to Vail, CO and it had plenty of power on the passes and still got 41 mpg!! On another road trip with 4 people and our luggage we got 44 mpg! Love it! Around town it feels a little different. Tip-in throttle off the line doesn't provide much oomph, but once you're over 10 mph or so, it's got plenty of zip. Actually quite quick for a 4 cylinder. I never feel like it's underpowered. We live at 6200 feet elevation. The V6 version of the Altima must be a rocket with 80 more horses. Also around town the CVT isn't always as smooth and linear as a traditional automatic. Sometimes you notice a slight lag or surge. It doesn't bother the wife at all, I don't think she even notices it, but for me it's just a little odd, but not a deal-breaker. I notice that in town if I put it in D-sport mode it's more responsive and smooth. If you really want it to be snappy and drive aggressively around town, turn off the Over Drive. It leaves the engine in the higher rpms and feels like a little sports car. Overall, I don't mind the CVT and am happy with it. Here's some niggly things that I think Nissan should take care of for future Altimas: - When you hit the off button (it's keyless) it kills the power to everything; the stereo, the windows, it's OFF. Most cars leave the power on for a minute or two so you can roll windows up or listen to the radio. On the Altima, once you shut it off, that's it. Seems odd to me. - The sound system has no mute button... any where. You either have to turn the sound down or the system off. Not handy. - There is no scan or seek function on the stereo. Nothing but the tuning knob. Weird. You can toggle through your presets but that's it. - The detents on the tuning knob to change stations is too soft. It's hard to go one 'click' to the next station because you can barely feel the detents. - The voice command system feels kind of outdated. It's kinda clunky to use. - The Navigation system feels like it's from 3 generations ago. Our smart phones' GPS and navigation systems have become so simple, intuitive and make helpful suggestions, so they are quick and easy to use. Nissan's nav system feels old. And even when you have the street address and try to input it, sometimes it still can't seem to find the right address in its address book. But once you get the right place in, it navigates just fine. But sometimes you're sitting there inputting, deleting, inputting, backing out to the previous menu... it could be improved quite a bit. Come on Nissan, just use Google maps or something! - The back up camera resolution is ok, not great. I drove my friend's Jeep Cherokee and that back up camera is like High Def compared to the Altima's. Nissan could improve that. It's ok, just on the blurry side and makes it feel dated. - The cupholders are kinda on the small side, so my wife's water bottles that she takes on a run don't fit. - The info screen between the speedo and the tach has some info that is in a really small font. They should be increased for readability. Speaking of that screen between the gauges, I with Nissan gave the option having less screens to have to toggle through. The blue tooth connectivity seems fine. Overall even with the issues I mentioned, I really like the car and glad we got it. I'm impressed. My wife is very happy with it. It would be fun to drive a V6 Altima sometime.

Good car but outdated desigb

It's cheap, reliable, pretty good looking and has enough power for you to have fun with enough safety features to keep you alive. Turns at double the limit and snow driving are no problem for this machine. Smooth as silk in the triple digits. Only complaint is that the trunk is on hinges instead of struts and that changing bulbs is not something a novice can easily do. I would recommend putting a cold air intake on for the mpg increase and increase in engine noise to drown out the higher pitched CVT.

Great Car for the Money

I purchased this car in October 2014 and have been very pleased with it.. Great gas mileage and the ride is very smooth with no vibrations or excess noise. I don't understand the negative reviews since I have had 2 Altima's now and no major concerns. I did have to replace a speaker cover that was defective and the engine was noisy at 40 to 60 mile per hour but I took it to the dealer and the engine heat shield was loose and once it was repaired the noise was gone... I have had the 3.5 liter engine and the 2.5 liter and both are very good. The 2.5 4 cylinder engine is very powerful and the gas mileage is 30 in town and 39 on the hwy.. I would recommend this car any day when you consider the price and all the extras it has. Like I said I don't know anyone that is unhappy with the Altima and still don't understand the negative feedback on this site..

actually a decent car (2.5 s)

This car isn't so bad actually. CVT is nice and efficient. Gives the car much better pick up that most compeitors. Amazing milage well over 30 mpg. Super comfortable seats. More than enough room in front and back for almost any size adult. Great sound system on the base. Nice quite ride despite what critics say about CVT noise. It's only noisy if you rev the engine up to 4000 rpm or so. Handling is above average at best but very smooth effortless power steering. Only complaints are some weird noises this car makes. You can hear the gas slosh around the gas tank if you break hard. And the power steering pump constantly hums. Just pet peeves that don't really affect the cars drive ability. Overall it's every bit as good as a camry or sonata. Just depends on what you prefer. For me it was the money I got mine brand new for just under $19k.

Well i had a 2011 altima sl and liked it alot and did not wanna buy anymore new cars but after my daughter was born i thought we needed more room so i traded fora Nissan pathfinder base model, but I should of kept my other altimas and paid it off, i really did not need the room and the gas and features on base pathfinder was not that good , no bluetooth ,camera, satelite radio,automatic headlights, or intelligent key you had to pay 3000 more to get those features. So iwas able to take it back and trade it in to the dealership and they paid it off and i got a 2015 altima s with the display audio package which has a camera and power seat, and satellite radio, which i think is the best value and i love the intelligent key and bluetooth, and the text messaging assistant that talks to you and nissans easy fill tire alert you dont have to have a tire gauge it blows the horn when you reach the correct pressure.And the gas mileage is excellent i avg around 30-31 but have gotten up to 41. And i got a very low .90 interest rate for 60 months thats less than one percent so this loan i will have it paid off early and quick because I am gonna pay extra .

I'm part of the 3 percenters

I rent the 2.5 all the time and personally wouldn't buy that version. I do believe it is too noisy and underpowered. I was one of the few that went with the 3.5 SL (Nissan confirms only 3% of Altima's sold are of the 3.5 variety). Sure, it was several thousand more, but the performance make it worth it to me, and the CVT purrs nicely (nice engine 'growl') when paired with the larger engine. Otherwise, it is fully loaded and I'm loving it. Came from a 2013 Fusion Titanium and had nothing bad to say about that vehicle, but LOVE the new Nissan...

Well-equipped, good looking sedan

Nice riding car. We get over 40 mpg on the highway, using cruise control. If we go between 55-65 we have even gotten over 43mpg. Very comfortable seats, front and back. Our Altima SL is well equipped with moonroof, Bluetooth, back up camera. Our car doesn't have navigation, but has a big app package called Nissan Connect. It also has a huge trunk. Have had it over 6 months and still love it!

Love This CAR!!!!

I've read through all the reviews here and quite honestly, I don't hear any engine noise. The car handles like a dream and the fuel mileage is fantastic. The steering is a bit loose compared to what I'm used to, but I like it. There is plenty of room for all my grown children and grandchildren. The only thing that took some getting used to is the acceleration. It accelerates from the current speed with little or no shifting. It takes off quickly, it's just the feature is not what you expect. Although I do enjoy it. Overall, it's a great car!

I purchased a 2015 Altima S from the dealer. Initially upon taking it home we heard a knocking in the engine. Five weeks after we had it, we took a road trip. It was one of the most horrifying experiences of my life. The car wandered and shifted from left to right at higher speeds. Keeping it on the road was a major ordeal and very exhausting. We were happy to make it to our destination and back. Once we got home the car was taken to the deal where it was purchased. The service manager explained that the new electronic steering in the new models was set that way and I would just have to "learn to deal with it." They checked out the car and claimed that nothing was wrong. At this point I would not drive the card off of the lot as I know it is unsafe and very dangerous. I was forced to buy a Rogue and loose thousands of dollars on the deal after owning the car for only 5 weeks and driving it for less than 1,000 miles. My attempts to explain the situation to Nissan Consumer Affairs were useless. Buyer beware!

Expected better!

It would be great if there was a way to really test a car more thoroughly then you can on a short test drive at the dealers. I've had 2 previous Altima's; a 2004 and a 2012. Both were good solid cars that I enjoyed, so I was expecting the same or better with this 2015. Test drive seemed fine. My major complaints are engine noise, and the CVT transmission. Especially when cold the engine is more like a diesel than a gas engine. VERY noisy even under mild acceleration. Seems better after warming up a bit, but still probably the noiseist engine I've ever had. The CVT seems to have artificial shift points built in. The problem is when cruising at a steady speed (doesn't matter if slow or fast) the CVT feels like a manual transmission that needs to be downshifted a gear. You can feel the slight but noticeable vibration in the steering wheel. Also, the auto climate control is overly aggressive. When in heat mode, the fan goes to full speed and stays there way too long. You need to manually set the fan speed down a notch or two before you turn into toast. When on a test drive, the sales person said the heater was "industrial". She wasn't kidding! OK, a few good points. Good gas mileage, and a comfortable ride. Performance is certainly adequate for a 4 cylinder (other than the raucous engine noise). I was really debating between the Altima and an Accord. Now wishing I would have gone for the Accord!

Updating my review. The airbag sensor issue described below is now being recalled: http://www.autoblog.com/2016/04/30 Also there as another recall on the hood latch. Lowering the reliability and resale values to one star. The Good: The car is a joy to drive. It has great acceleration for a 4 cylinder. The handling is great and responsive for a car of its size. The steering may be a bit too soft feeling and aggressive for some, but I like it. The car brakes well, the brakes feel tight and I haven't yet, knock on wood, had a situation where I had to engage the anti-lock brakes. The car gets great gas mileage, but I have a heavy foot so I average around 27 mpg mixed highway / city driving. The keyless entry and push button start are a convenience, but the most convenient feature of the car is the car honks when you have filled the tire up to the correct pressure. Just turn the car off. Press the start button twice with your foot off of the brake, fill up the tire until the car honks and you're off. Best feature by far when it's cold and you're pumping air not having to fool around with a pressure gauge exposed to the elements. The Bad: Engine noise. This may not be bad to people who enjoy sports cars or are used to driving manual transmissions, but this car is really loud in certain situations. It purrs when at speed, but roars when getting up to speed and coasting downhill. I'd compare coasting downhill in this car to downshifting from 4th to 2nd in a manual; you feel the car employing engine braking and a tug then the RPMs rev. I think this is a feature of CVT to keep the same MPH going downhill and not over accelerate causing the car to surge MPH down the hill. Engine noise may not be an issue with the V6. The transmission feels a bit frail after accelerating after shifting from reverse. The car flutters a little and even does it sometimes when accelerating from a standstill. I caution you not to reverse roll with this transmission. I feel it's too fragile to handle going in reverse putting it in neutral while you roll and engage the drive gear. That's a bad practice general for any automatic but may be fatal for this one. I bet that's why a few reviews said their transmission went out after 10k miles. The car feels cheaply made after driving it awhile. Road dirt and grime gets from the floor panel all of the way up to the door jamb where the car door closes. Never had that happen in any other car. The rain pings on the car like rain on a tin can; makes me feel the car has little to no noise insulation. At highway speeds there is a ton of wind noise, but one will get used to it unless that type of thing is a deal breaker. The "carpet" on the floor is paper thin. Literally. It's the cheapest carpet I've ever seen in a car. Wait until you vacuum it you'll see what I mean. Feels like it could tear easily. It seems like the carpet that comes standard in the trunk of cars. Nissan decided to cut corners and put that cheap stuff in the interior. The Ugly: The visor fell down while my wife was driving maybe month 3 into owning the car. Took it back to the dealer to get repaired under warranty and they claimed the visor would have cost $300! For that price why is it falling down?! While there we also got the fix done for the hood latch recall. Fast forward 2 months later my wife gets in the passenger seat and the passenger side airbag disengaged light came on. She got out of the car and back in and it stayed on. Drove for fifteen minutes and still disengaged, so I had to park turn the car off and back on to get the airbag to turn back on. It happened two more times. Took it to the dealer and they claim nothing was wrong but gave us a manual on how the feature worked. Mind you the 2014 Altimas had this very same issue. It has happened once since taking it back to the dealer. Trip three to the dealer was because of squealing brakes on a brand new car. If it rains and the car has been sitting they squeal. If it's cold and the car has been sitting they squeal. This is a "feature" of the metal on metal brake pads the dealer says. I say another corner was cut. The projection headlights are dangerously dim. They work OK in dry conditions, but in the rain forget about it. You can barley tell they are on. Just compare other cars' headlight beams on the road to the Altima you'll see. The interior windows fog at the drop of a dime. I live in a humid region and this is a constant problem even with the recirculation off! It takes the defroster awhile to address the fogging. The technology package and Nissan connect are a joke. It barely connects with my Droid Turbo, and partially connects with my wife's iPhone 5s and her Droid MAXX, it did the best with her Galaxy S3. I have to turn the Bluetooth off and on on my phone several times before it connects and when it does the entire system freezes on the In Call for 0:01 display until the car is reset. Does not recognize voice

Love the altima butt regret upgrading to the 15

I traded my 14 altima in for a 15. It isn't even a year old and the paint has two chips. I can get over that but when I bought the car I found out it has a stained windshield. After cleaning it numerous times, we reported it to the service bepartment and they have done nothing and suggested nothing. If you buy a brand new car and it is suppose to have a lifetime warranty, you should have a car free of defects.

I looked at all comparable cars similar to a Camry SE I owned except the Nissan Altima! When bringing my wife's Rogue in for routine maintenance I happened to see the dealer had a 2015 6cyl Altima with 4K miles on the internet. This car is above and beyond what I had expected, including the cost.

Winter in NE needs good visibility however my 2015 Altima is horrible with interrior windows fogging. No one seems to know how to prevent. I've been told to run my AC in the winter...really? Usually drive with windows open which is rather cold. Running dedrosters only make the ptoblem worse as i was advised be the dealer. Since there were recalls for this problem in previous years I would think Nissan would find a fix.

I've had this car for about a month now, I traded my Nissan Versa in after only 10 months because the tranny went out on me at only 18,000 miles... so I was skeptical about getting another Nissan. I got such a great deal on the Altima I couldn't say no($15,000) brand new. My versa was only worth $4,500. So I said yes and now I have about 3,500 miles on it. So far it seems to be a great reliable vehicle. The Transmission is a little weird at first and might take some getting use to. The cabin is cozy and quiet. The Gas is nice to but depends how you drive the car. I average about 29.8 MPG. I was getting 42.3 MPG when I went to Arizona from Los Angeles , I didn't even have to stop and fill up. It cost just about 50 bucks or less to fill a full tank up. It drives like a dream though, handles amazing through the Malibu Canyons and Accelerates great up the hills. Couldn't be happier!!

Well, my wife and I looked at many different Cars over a 2 month period once we decided that our SUV had seen its better day. 10 years and 210,000 miles, so in the process my Wife test drove a Kia, a Chevy Impala, a Chevy Malibu, a Honda Accord, a Toyota Camry, a Nissan Maxima, and a couple of different Altimas. We liked the Altima SL because it was equipped with basically everything we wanted, Navigation, Moonroof, Heated Seats, Heated Steering Wheel, Leather Interior, Backup Camera, Full Technology Package, Push Button Start, Remote Start, Premium Bose Sound System, Sirius XM Radio, and both front seats are power seats, the Exterior is a Beautiful Black, interior is Tan with wood grain trim. The Car is awesome, it drives great, really good on gas, we love the large video screen , and the approaching vehicle warning feature. The Bose 9 speaker system sounds great, all in all we love this Altima SL 2.5 litre, we could have spent thousands more for the Accord ( which we also liked) but this is the better value, we got every option availible including an extended warranty (125,000 mi) or 5 years, all for 23,871.00. We are happy.

4 cyl acceleration almost as good as other brands v6 due to cvt transmission. Excellent mpg. Hand calculated on long trip 42.2 mpg. Drove speed limit, tailwind sometimes. Very quiet interior, very similar to fit and finish of Lexus 350 ( camry size Lexus ) but $15,000 cheaper. I take offense at car magazine "experts" criticising cvt differences from conventional transmissions.. yes, they are different!! Better performance and mileage but no shift points. Rent one for a weekend if you're on the fence.. Altima is a nice car..

shockingly good

i previously owned and had absolutely no problems with a fully loaded 2008 altima sl. but still looked at other cars before buying new one. was overwhelmed by new one. struck a great deal but upgrades and improvements are dramatic. as a tall person, still impressed by head and leg space compared to bmw or mercedes. car drives and handles great, looks sharp, and feels great. my only issue is figuring out new technology. sound system awesome. highly reccommend the car. also own a 350 z which moves and is still reliable. i keep coming back to nissan.

Ok so my car is a 2.5SL I have push button start LED taillights, steering wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, leather seats, but I don't have power or heated seats no heated steering wheel. The standard radio and hubcaps! How is this an SL? When I see S models with power seats??? I think they just stuck S, SL, on anything in 2015. Won't catch Honda doing that if it's a EX-L it has alloys, sunroof and leather For sure!

For the past 7 years, I have driven 2008 Nissan Altima and loved the car. So I decided to get the exact same car when I decided to purchase a new vehicle. I wish I had my old car because of the steering on the 2015 model that I purchased. The car drifts from one side of the road to the other and you have to continuously fight the steering wheel. After taking the car to the dealership, they told me that it drift within the normal limit set by Nissan. When did become appropriate to drift across the center line??? The dealership said that the new steering is sensitive and will drift dependent on the makeup of the road. After fighting the steering for only 2000 miles, I'm ready to trade for another car. My advise - think very carefully before purchasing the Nissan Altima. It hard to pick-up on the drift during a 10 minute test drive. After buying the top of the line Altima, I would think Nissan would try to help resolve the problem. No luck!!!

Happy Altima

If you are tall with long legs, you may have a bit of a problem getting in and out. Otherwise, comfort is fantastic. The interior is very nicely put together. Exterior is wonderful. I would highly recommend this vehicle if you want a decently priced vehicle, reliable, and good looking interior and exterior.

Seats are constructed poorly and cheap.

If you are looking for value do not purchase the 2015 Altima SL. I've had mine for 5 months and have returned to dealership 4 times so far for repair of front passenger seat, and yes it's broken yet again, at this point I will have to say I've purchased a LEMON. I plan to contact the media if this is not resolved soon. Leather apparently poorly constructed in back seat beverage holder as well, which came off the first time I pulled it down to use the cup holder. Have not brought that to dealership attention, as I'm still working with getting a passenger seat fixed that keeps popping off it's hinges (very afraid someone may get hurt if I give them a ride.) Nissan Of North America Corporate office hard to reach assigned customer care person assigned to my case... they also are not allowed to give out their last names, only first name 'John'.. Why so private when I've purchased a car with my full name address and social security number on the contract? Stay away from 2015 Altima unless maybe cloth seats. Otherwise rides well. To update my first review: It has now been a year with my 2015 Altima and as of March, I finally went to another dealership for repair of the front passenger seat. This dealership's service department immediately changed out the entire base casing of the seat, which seem to have worked. I believe the entire problem could of been resolved sooner if not for Stone Mountain Nissan service department and the dealership's GM not trying to expend enough money to fix it correctly nor just replace the seat or the car. Sad another dealership (Nissan South of Jonesboro GA) who did not sell me the car was able to mend the problem in one visit. I plan to do business with Nissan South in the future for any further purchases and repairs. 10/28/16 Update on 2015 Nissan Altima SL. After a total of seven (7) repairs of the passenger seat and the second dealership suggesting a total replacement seat in addition with the fear of someone getting hurt in my car making me responsible, I finally with absolutely NO assistance from Nissan of Stone Mountain, nor the Corporate customer care folks from corporate, I traded out the car and took a loss. Please no matter what do not purchase Nissan Altima... seats are defective. I did meet someone who had pretty much the same issue I had but lost touch with her. I owned the car for a total of 14 months begging for help from Nissan... so buyer beware!

Great All Round Car

I bought this can back in June and now have approximately 7000 miles on the car, I am very impressed with the overall ride, comfort, and gas mileage of the car. This is the first new car I have ever owned (that I personally drive all the time) and I am 60 years old. The brakes on the car are outstanding and I bought the technology package with the car so I can use my iPod. I drove several different cars when traveling on business and quickly found that this was the car I liked best out of all the different cars that I had rented. The CVT transmission makes the car great to drive on a long trip and in the mountains it will climb steep grades without all the down shifting that you normally see with other cars. So far I have averaged 38-39 MPG on my daily drive to work (50 miles total mostly interstate driving). CVT can be somewhat jerky when in stop and go traffic at times but other than that the CVT is very impressive for the performance and the MPG I get. The car will comfortably seat 4 adults and the trunk size is great for a trip. Only a few things concerns me about the car, the sheet metal is very thin and it would not take much to make a ding in the sheet metal. The motor rattles when it is first started after sitting for a period of time, I believe this is due to the type of lifters they used and the very light weigh oil used in the car. I plan on changing over to 10-W30 at the next oil change since I don’t live in a cold weather area. Once the car is hot the problem goes away, I have been a technical type of guy (electrician/mechanic) my whole life and I am not overly concerned at this point. These problems are not a major issue but in fairness I thought they should be mentioned. I highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a great all round car.

First and last

Bought a Nissan Altima SV on February 2015 with 200 miles on it. Started having issue with it in July 2015. Accelerating and the car would hesitate to move, so I would start it thinking is the accelerator issue. Went to get an oil change on August 2015 and explain to the Representative what the car was doing and he notified me that it was a holiday and they were short handed so bring it back on your next oil change and they will check on it. So a month later goes by and guess what happens the transmission goes out. my car only has 10100 miles on it. will never buy another Nissan again.

Great MPG BUT...

I purchased an 2015 Altima 2.5SL(new) in August of 2014. I live in MN so I went through a winter with it. Things I liked, MPG was phenomenal, lots of room, audio system was great, ride was comfortable. Things I didn't like, I started to notice what appeared to be rust forming on the trunk where the chrome attaches to the trunk(Dec '14). I kept an eye on it and in March('15) the rust was very noticeable, I contacted my dealer and they didn't seem shocked at all. They said it was fairly common. WTF? The car was 6 months old. They "fixed" it and within a month it was showing rust again. This time they had the body shop fix it. Then about a month later a started to notice rust around the back door opening. I was told it was due to gravel. Hmm I had an Acura TSX which I owned for 10 years and drove on the same roads and didn't have any rust until year 10. After the THIRD round of rust in LESS THAN a year i dumped the rust bucket. I don't know what to tell you other than I have read other reviews with the same rust issues. That is a quality control problem. i wish I could recommend the Altima but i can't. 3 issues with Rust on a car less than a year old is unacceptable. One round is bad but THREE!!! Buyer be ware.
