On average, the 2008 Nissan 2.5 SE (the one I own) is a very reliable vehicle that you can get at an unbeatable price. I am satisfied so far with this vehicle.

Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Nissan Altima?
Do not like this "new" transmission, have had it back to the dealership 3 times. It hesitates on a slow take off. Feels like it wants to flood out. Breather & intake does not seat properly making for loud motor noise. Loved my 1985 Altima, but not happy with this one. Rides rough, can feel every bump in the road. Every time dealership says,"oh thats just that CVT transmission". Had I know this I could have save about 29K...

2008 Nissan Altima Review:
Won't buy another one! At least not from the Dealership I bought this one (first one there was a lease in 1985).

Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Nissan Altima?
Fingertip controls of the steering wheel ergonomic design of the cockpit, brightly lit display of the gauges. Drove the car on a trip to Florida excellent gas milage with the 2.5 engine CVT transmission is very smooth. Very comfortable ride.

Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Nissan Altima?
Heated side mirrors should be standard, put the fuel cap holder back on the door instead of just hanging

Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Nissan Altima?
Performance, style, and love the Bose stero system

Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Nissan Altima?
Two things:
1) I agree with the need for an Accessories setting on the push button start.
2) An easier "scan through" the channels mechanism on the steering wheel radio control. XM gives so many choices!

2008 Nissan Altima Review:
I purchased the 3.5 SL package and love the vehicle. So far (3K miles) I've had no problems with the vechicle in any way. After test driving the 2.5 & 3.5, I chose the 3.5, but I can see why people might want to save the up front dollars and long term gas money and opt for the 2.5. The 2.5 drove very well for a 4 cyl, however I am averaging 27 MPG with the 3.5 on 80% highway miles. I guess I just had to have the additional power, it's a guy thing. The CVT transmission is very smooth, and the Bose system with XM makes every ride a pleasure. It truly rocks.
