Car Review: 2009 Nissan Altima

Individuals looking for a car with luxury, an aerodynamic design and a good amount of get up and go are closely examining the 2009 Nissan Altima Sedan. Starting at only $19,900, the 2009 Nissan Altima offers great gas mileage – 23 miles per gallon in the city and 32 miles per gallon on the highway, with more interior space and comfort for driver and passengers. On top of this, the 2009 Nissan Altima has a 5 star rating for crash safety, and a ton of excellent features.

The superior performance of the 2009 Nissan Altima is thanks to a 2.5 Liter, 16 valve, 4-cylinder engine that generates 175 Horsepower. An engine balancer system, Iridium tipped spark plugs and powerful front wheel drive allow the 2009 Nissan Altima to blow away the competition in this class. Front and rear stabilizer bars, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, and Xtronic continuously variable transmission make this model special. Front and rear disc brakes, and a 4-wheel anti-lock braking system with electronic brake distribution allows for consistent stopping power.

The exterior of the 2009 Nissan Altima offers stylish 16 inch steel wheels with wheel covers and durable all-season tires. The dual exhaust with chrome tip finishers, solar glass, and dual outside power mirrors give the Nissan Altima a sharp, clean look.

On the interior, the 2009 Nissan Altima is made for comfort. Power windows and door locks, a front sliding armrest, and map lights and rear reading lights are nice comfort tools. A tilt and telescoping steering column, air conditioning with a micro filter, and cruise control make driving a pleasure even in traffic. The 2009 Nissan Altima has a multi-functional trip computer with an outside temperature display that is well ahead of it’s time.

In the area of safety for both driver and passengers, the 2009 Nissan Altima is a superstar. With steel side door beams, zone body construction and crumple zones, this car can take a licking. Dual stage supplemental front airbags, driver and front passenger side-impact airbags and a tire pressure monitoring system all serve to deliver peace of mind.

The 2009 Nissan Altima comes with a 36 month/36,000 mile limited warranty and a 5 year/60,000 mile limited power train warranty. Not that you would probably ever need either, but you can’t put a price on tranquility. From an overall perspective, the 2009 Nissan Altima has no weaknesses, and is an outstanding car.
