Comment on Driven: 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL by Bob Ellisonhttps://news.classiccars.com/driven-2016-nissan-altima-2-5-sl/#comment-3664 Tue, 26 Apr 2016 01:31:54 +0000 https://news.classiccars.com/?p=71719#comment-3664 I’ve been a Nissan/Datsun fan for years…until the CVTransmission. I once had a 2005 Altima SE-V6 with a 5-speed auto transmission (it was my wife’s car) and 250 hp. It had reasonable acceleration for an automatic. I preferred a stick, so I bought my 2005 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SE with the 4.0 V6 and 6-speed manual. Changed out the exhaust to a 3” cat-back through a Magnaflow and added a Volant cold air box. If I can keep my foot out of it, I’ll get 21mpg or more on the freeway (not in rush-hour traffic, though) and went to a +2 wheel and tire package. It performs pretty well. After my wife passed away, I traded the car in on an Infiniti G37xS with a 7-speed auto. Plenty of “go” there.

Lexus has a couple so called sport sedans and Nissan has been trying, but they are fugly looking! Wheres the beef! Not enough horsepower to make you feel engaged!
