I have gotten use to the CVT transmission. This transmission is set up to use the engine torque to aid in fuel economy. When you take off from a stop light, you can feel the transmission change (no shifting felt) where the engine rpm is kept low (low rpm) and engine torque pushing the car more than horsepower moving the car. For maximum horsepower, the rpm's have to rise up above 3k rpm. When the rpm is kept low, the engine is not using as much fuel, thus increasing fuel economy. The CVT does a good job at utilizing the engine's torque at low speeds (city driving) to aide in maxing fuel economy. On the highway, it varies the gear ratio's without feeling it shift. You may observe at 70 mph the rpm at 2k rpm. When needing more power or climbing steep hills, you do not feel it shift, but will observe the rpm (tachometer) rising to meet demands for the situation. It you drive it easily, maintaining speed limits, and allow the car time to increase speed, it definitely maximizes fuel economy. It you had a heavy foot and and go zipping around, then you loose economy. But driven easily with a mind on economy, I get approx 32 mpg in this car on the highway and around 25-26 city. If I'm driving "in a hurray" so to speak, I lose about 5-6 mpg all around. see full Nissan Altima review

I drive my cars hard and I get an average of 29mpg. This is a 70/30 mix of highway/city (my highway has a lot of stoplights so that is why 30 is so high). Even at high speeds fuel econ is great. see full Nissan Altima review

Car now has just over 1500 miles on it. Tanks of gas have ranged from 21.7 MPG to 27.1 MPG. Hoping for more consistency as drivetrain continues to break in see full Nissan Altima review
