  • Love my Altima! - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    2016 Altima is too new to comment on some of the above areas. So far I love it. Leasing for 3 years.

  • Engineering at its best - 2016 Nissan Altima

    The performance vs MPG is unsurpassed especially given the fact that it is only a 4 cylinder. Typically exceed the 39 MPG for highway driving all on regular unleaded. This car moves. No issues whatsoever when merging onto highway or passing. The CVT always makes sure there is plenty of torque either from a dead stop or highway speeds. The new styling makes it look like a mini Maxima. Love this vehicle. One of the better navigation systems I have owned. Simple to use and usually right on the mark. Bose sound system is amazing and pounds when you turn up the dial without distortion. Heated seats and steering wheel are features found on more expensive vehicles.

  • I have now had 2 Altimas, Great Car, Great Value! - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    I guess that I take what others say with a huge grain of salt. Having owned 2 Altimas (and my parents have owned 3) I can say that they are great cars and we've never truly had any issues. In fact, my mother swears by them as she has been rear-ended 2 times in her vehicles and walked away with no issues. I have owned Toyotas and can never get truly comfortable in their cars--but Nissan/Infiniti, I can always find a comfortable driving position. My wife owned an Accord, and after purchasing her Nissan Rogue and riding in my Altima, she will never go back to Honda again. I am truly impressed by the midyear refreshes on this 2016b Altima SL. I am glad they finally upgraded the headlights, and the navigation is MUCH better than my last model. The voice interactive software actually works better with the iPhone as well and you can access Siri through the voice controls. Even the SiriusXM interface is upgraded. AND...finally the Altima has phone control remote...the NISSAN CONNECT is ACTUALLY USEFUL this time around.

  • I Love My 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SR - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    I absolutely love my 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SR. I was in the market for a mid-size car, and didn't know where to start as I have only owned trucks my entire life. I did a lot of research online on Edmunds, KBB, and The Car Connection before going to dealerships. I pretty much made up my mind on the Altima from the first test drive. It just looked and felt great. The Altima handles great, the SR model looks sporty yet classy, and the comfort is a solid 10 out of 10. I still cannot believe how comfortable the seats are. Not only in front, but also in the back. I have a sore lower back that always hurts when sitting, and honestly it does not hurt in these Anti Gravity seats. Also it is so roomy, even in the back, and I'm 6'1" and 240lbs. Also the trunk has a lot of space. The only real complaints I have about the car is that there is a fair amount of road noise, but I think it may be the stock Dunlop tires. I've been thinking about getting some better tires to see if it would help. Also the nissanconnect stuff is pretty worthless. I can only use Pandora, IHeart Radio, or Facebook. I don't subscribe to any of those apps, but do subscribe to spotify which streams great through bluetooth audio. I think they should add some useful and helpful apps like google maps, waze, or yelp. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase.

  • Great Car - 2016 Nissan Altima

    I love my Altima! The gas mileage is fantastic, it is a very comfortable and smooth ride, and it's absolutely beautiful. This is my second Altima and they are very reliable and well built.

  • Goodbye Accord, Hello Altima - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    I had a 2014 Accord, our third one and we love Hondas, but after a long trip from Nashville to Richmond, VA, I couldn't stand it. The drivers' seat was wearing me out! I couldn't sit for more than 90 miles at a time. I told my wife, we have to look for another car. I was going to buy another Honda, but the new ones weren't any better in the seat department. I saw a ad for a Altima(NASA seats) and we went to try one out. We live just five miles from the Nissan plant and never thought about buying one since we see them everywhere. I sat in it and thought...Wow this is nice and went for the test drive. I liked almost everything about it. After the negotiating stage, we bought it. The ride was great and and seats were even better! Yes, we did make another long drive again and with no problems, I loved the ride. We bought the SV model and my only regret is that we should have got the NAV option. Nissan has done a good job on the new '16 model. One that long trip from Nashville to Indy, we got over 40mpg. At one point I saw 41.3. We are getting a good 30mpg in the city. Thanks Nissan for making a better than excepted car.

  • 2016 Altima - It's about VALUE and LOOKS not bad - 2016 Nissan Altima

    I want to say how much I saved in my trade by having Edmunds numbers to pull out !!!!!!

  • 4 cylinder with spunk - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    I love this car. It is the perfect size, even the back seat is adequate, certainly for shorter rides. It has a much smoother ride than I expected, particularly since I came from a Lincoln Town car. Great mileage, and a nice big gas tank mean a great range before having to stop. Only real criticism as to do with the cheap plastic in the interior that I know will degrade, wear or crack with time and use, specifically the door storage slots. These were not made to be durable.

  • Noise Maker - 2016 Nissan Altima

    I should have test driven vehicle on the highway ay 70mph. Would not have purchased it. Road, engine and wind sounds are terrible. Stay away from Nissan.. High mpg and rebates are a trap, they have cheated on the quality.

  • '16 Nissan Altima, everything it promises and more - 2016 Nissan Altima
    By -

    This is an exceptional car for the money, many safety and technology features that are usually available only on much higher priced vehicles. Ride, comfort and handling are outstanding. Styling tweaks from the 2015 Altima make this model look sportier.
