4dr Sedan 270-horsepower 3.5L V6 6-speed shiftable CVT FWD

Why the 2011 Nissan Altima?


Sport suspension on the 3.5 SR is a PERFECT blend of comfort and performance. Little to no body roll in the turns. Crisp, razor sharp response. All but the largest bumps are absorbed with with a quality feel. Glides down the road at highway speeds.

Exterior styling

3.5SR has a totally different appearance (to me)than a 2.5S. 17" wheels, lip spoiler, fog lights and HID headlights really set this car apart from the more passive appearance of the 2.5S. I feel ext styling will stand the test of time.

Audio & nav systems

BOSE system produces clear,crisp highs that are not harsh. Bass response is tight and precise (depending upon music source). One of the best audio systems in its class. That said, audio compression on XM sat really sounds poor in this car (bass is boomy)

Why Not the 2011 Nissan Altima?

Interior styling

Compared to many new cars, one could argue that the interior is somewhat plain and uneventful (lacks tons of controls/button). Personally I think the interior has a clean straight forward appearance that I appreciate. Center vents have a sporty design.

Fuel economy

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
