If you're seeking a sleek and efficient coupe that is a bit more sophisticated than the traditional 2-door muscle car, the 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe is for you. It's not hard to mistake a loaded V6-pow
If you desire a coupe, but at this point in your life owning a 2-door model is just not practical, you might consider some of the sleeker sedans endowed with coupelike styling. The Volkswagen CC, Niss
Given the 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe's sportier suspension, lighter overall weight and shorter wheelbase, a more responsive driving experience is delivered vs. the Altima Sedan. What's really surprising is just how comfortable the Altima Coupe is in everyday driving, thanks mainly to its body-hugging sport seats and civilized road manners. To really enjoy this car, however, you need to get it out on a twisting back road where you'll discover the joy of the Altima Coupe's speed-sensitive power steering. Turn-in is quick and precise with the hydrau

"This is absolutely the best car for your money. The interior is slick and high quality, the drive is smooth, the acceleration is amazing. It is just all around a really nice car. I was looking at Nissan Maxima when I bought this and went for the cheaper model because I didn't feel like I lost much in downgrading. The Maxima was not worth the large price jump. Do yourself a favor. Buy an Altima."

"A couple of years ago, I went to the fair,took my daughter and left the car running to finish eating as it was too hot to sit without the air cond. well after we finished eating, we unloaded her outfits and gown and pretty her up stuff for the pageant, getting in the back seat and trunk. Hours later like at least 4 hours we left. when we got back to the car it was still running! this has happened more than once, a couple of times at the mall, it is just so quiet when parked and running you really can barely hear it. Even though it is a four cylinder, it has fantastic pick up, I regularly pass when stuck behind pokey folks on our 2 lane highway where you have to be fast or the chance to pass is gone due to blind spots and cars coming the other direction. It can merge onto interstate withoutdisturbing traffic flow what so ever 0 to 70 in a flash... There is plenty of room for my daughter and 3 of her teenage friends, and me driving (I am 5'5" <130lbs.) there are only 2 cons that I have found after owning it for over five years (I bought it new like 38 miles on it)... my husband is like 6'2" 220lb ... he fits ok and has driven the car on several 13 hour trips to FL, but it could stand like 2 or 3 more inches arm and leg space, if we don't leave the front console closed it pokes his leg. The trunk is spacious, but now that our daughter is older and wants to take her own suitcases, itis packed to the brim, as is the other side of the back seat, so she is a bit cramped in the back. Maybe next time we will try the maxima. One issue that we finnally figured out is... several times I would go to my car after work and the battery would be dead. I couldn't figure out what I was leaving on, after a couple of times I bacame really carfule of checking everything before I got out... well it happened on our last trip, so I could finnally say "see honey I wasn't lieing about making sure eveything was off..." I had got to where I NEVER left the Auto-Headlight feature on when leaving the car, and it hadn't happened in a while. Well, he was driving and it happened, we went into the grocery, came out... the car was dead.... then it happened at the condo... he was using the Auto-Headlight feature. I read more carefully through the manual and figured out that he was covering the sensor on the dash with his cap... never happened again...and he started turning it off... never happened again... I don't know if it was happening to me because of it being cloudy, or if I was tossing something on the dash ... but it turns out it is on the opposite side than what I thought... When I drove up to the school yard to pick up my daughter, the boys (12 & 13 at the time) really noticed it and thought it was so cool they were impressed...which I also think it a bit more streamlined than it's competitors Camry & Accord... though along with these cars there is about 10 or 15 cars in the lot at work exactally like mine, some with out spoiler & moonroof but the same color -White... the white four door has to be the most common car in USA!!!"
