Too many problems already with this car. Transmission cvt sucks!!! Gas mileage is not accurate. Stereo system has glitches going on. I, do not recommend this vehicle to anyone. If you do have this car, your trade in value is pretty much gone. Bad resale value!!!!!

I like the altima. This is my 3rd one. I'm dissapointed that after purchasing it one week ago the bumper sensor said it malfuntioned. Now I have to drive a rental until they figure out which sensor it is, which is what the dealer told me.

This 2019 Altima 2.5 SL drives nicely and soft on 17 inch wheels. 2.5L engine has a sufficient power. CVT transmission works fine. Though, in my opinion, it substantially lacks driving dynamics and pleasure of the automatic transmission with gears. Steering is precise and on-center. Brakes work very well. Navigation
