2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL Full Tour, Engine & Overview/Review
Honestly the mazda 6, fusion, altima, accord, passat and even camry SE are
probably the best you can do in this class. BUT If its me, nothing seems to
match the overall package of everything you get in the accord sedan, and if
that wasn't enough- the coupe has your back. That's just how it is for me,
everyone prefers different things. And that's coming from someone who has
been in/ filmed/ worked on/ even driven most every car in this class except
1997 Nissan Altima Misfire Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy
In this video I get into a misfire and check engine light on this 1997
Nissan Altima. The misfire codes are P0100 MAF sensor, P0325 Knock Sensor,
and P0304 Misfire cylinder #4. The engine also runs rough at idle. I go
through the steps of it's diagnosis, find the problem, and come back after
the repair. The actual repair of this vehicle will take place in another
video (next week), this video covers how I found out what was wrong with
this Altima. Engine performance issues can be tricky to nail down but with
a little time, patients, and some diagnostic know how, I'm sure you'll be
able to overcome any engine performance issue.

Next-generation XTRONIC CVT®
Nissan first adopted the Continuously Variable Transmission in 1992, then
refreshed and modernized it a decade later, becoming one of the world's
first automotive manufacturers to include the CVT on passenger cars. Now,
10 years on again, they've taken it to another level.
The 2013 Nissan Altima will be the first Nissan with the next-generation
XTRONIC CVT. The dramatically improved technology achieves a significant
15% increase in fuel efficiency, accelerates faster, runs quieter and offers an even more
seamless shifting experience.
How does it do this? By giving it the world's highest transmission ratio
and also reducing the transmission's weight, length, friction, and even the
amount of transmission fluid needed.
The transmission ratio is 7.3:1, which is a broader ratio than you'll find
in an average automatic, and far superior to the 6.0:1 you'd find in a
similar model vehicle.
Intelligent CVT Logic ensures that the transmission is always in the right
gear, which eliminates any wasteful gear hunting. The expanded gear ratio
also reduces engine revolutions drastically, allowing the Altima to cruise
at 60 miles per hour at fewer than 1500 RPMs. The benefits of lower RPMs
are obvious -- better fuel efficiency and a noticeably quieter ride.
So, what does all this mean for the driver? Efficiency: up to 15% increase
in fuel efficiency. Performance: it delivers absolutely seamless
performance and alleviates many of the concerns that drivers held about
earlier CVT's. Quiet: the higher-efficiency and 40% reduction in friction
allows the car to perform at higher speeds at very low RPMs, practically
eliminating all noise from the transmission.

2008 Honda Accord Coupe vs. 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe
Then Honda crashed Nissan's party with the 2008 Honda Accord Sedan and
Coupe. The 2008 Honda Accord Coupe brought us an epiphany. As we said
sarcastically when we first drove it, "An Accord coupe can do your income
taxes. If you need a root canal, Accord coupe is your car...but humpin' and
pumpin' is not an Accord coupe's strong suit." And yet we realized that
this isn't the Accord coupe we remember — it's fun. The Accord coupe
proves that Honda knows how to put some life into a car built from a sedate
2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
2013 Nissan Altima vs Maxima 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Nissan Altima and the new 2013
Nissan Maxima are two family sedans cut from the same cloth. Of course the
Maxima is Nissan's top of the line sedan while the Nissan Altima slots
right below the Maxima in both price and performance...or at least so we
thought until we tested both cars in another fun and informative TFLcar
Mashup Review. There's of course no doubt that the Maxima is the more
expensive of the two Nissan sedans. It also can be had with the more
powerful V6 but what about size and performance and perhaps more
importantly which car is the better driver. Check out this video comparison
to find out which Nissan sedan is really the top dog.

2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/altima/2015/?id=32972 The Altima’s fifth
generation design is officially 3 years old and this car competes in one of
the largest segments in the industry: the mid-size sedan segment. Nissan
holds its own by providing everything that a buyer is looking for at this
level: spacious interior, large trunk, fuel economy, and lots of modern
technology. Basically it’s everything you need in a modern passenger car.
The 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV has a base price of $24,720.
Overall the Altima is a sleek car with some interesting style points but at
the end of the day it still looks similar to other cars in this category.
The engine is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder that makes 182 horsepower and the CVT
combines to get 27 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. On the inside
the Altima may be at the top of the list when it comes to comfort.
If you are the type of person who just wants something cheap, roomy, and
reliable to go back-and-forth to work then the Altima is the perfect car.
As a bonus the Altima has excellent crash scores. Video by Christian

Best cars in 2014: http://vid.io/xqxe
The "family sedan" may not be very exciting, but without midsized sales
auto makers would be in a pickle. Ponder this: the five best-selling
midsized sedans in America accounted for 1.3 million of the 12.8 million
vehicles sold in 2011. With numbers like that, it's important to get your
mass-market people mover right. This means competitive fuel economy, a low
base price and swipe as much tech from your luxury brand as possible.
Either that or just wear a Nissan badge on the front. Say what? The last
generation Altima was the second best-selling car despite being long in the
tooth and filled with some questionable plastics. This Altima has a tougher
task however, it needs to compete with Honda's new Accord and Ford's sexy
Fusion which is selling like hot cakes. Can Nissan's traditional value
proposition make up the difference? Or does the Altima have something else
up its sleeve?
A design that doesn't alienate the customer you expect to return and buy
their second or third car is critical. Just ask Ford how that bubble-Taurus
redesign went in 1996. Still, midsize sedan shoppers demand some style so
Nissan's design team jammed a bit of Maxima, a pinch of Infiniti M and a
"whole-lotta" Versa into a sausage press and cut the Altima off at 191.5
inches. This makes the new Altima longer than a Camry, a hair longer than a
Maxima and essentially the same size as the Accord and Fusion. Nobody will
confuse the Altima with an Aston Martin, nor will they think their neighbor
is driving a budget Bentley. Instead the slab-sided Altima delivers clean
lines and elegant good looks. Think of it as the Midwestern farm girl to
the Fusion's Los Angeles call girl.
Since our tester was the top-of-the-line SL, the cockpit featured a heated
tilt/telescopic steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat and manually
adjustable lumbar support. Shoppers that chose the 3.5L V6 will be treated
to a pair of the best looking and best feeling magnesium paddle shifters
this side of a BMW M6. Seriously. There's just one problem: paddle shifters
on a car with a CVT make as much sense as a parking brake on a french
poodle. (Yet for some reason I found myself caressing their magnesium
goodness non-stop when I was behind the wheel.) Like the most entries in
this segment, the front passenger seat remains manually adjustable
regardless of trim level and upholstery. Thanks to Nissan's "Zero Gravity"
seat design, the front seats proved comfortable and didn't' aggravate my
temperamental knee during a 2 hour road trip. Since manufacturers "march to
their own drummer" when measuring legroom, take your family to the dealer
and jam them all in the car before making a purchase.
The crash diet and CVT pay dividends at the pump. The Altima 2.5 manages
27/38/31 MPG (City/Highway/Combined) and does so without direct injection,
start/stop, batteries or aero packages. What about that V6? Nissan's focus
on weight has made the Altima 3.5 lighter than the Accord V6 and Fusion 2.0
EcoBoost by over 200lbs. In our 3.5
SL I averaged an impressive 27.6MPG over a week of mixed driving. This is
notably above the 25MPG combined EPA score despite my commute and the
2,200ft mountain pass I cross twice a day. You can thank the light curb
weight and CVT for that. The Accord V6 matches the Altima's combined EPA
number and the Fusion trumps it by one MPG on paper. In the real world, the
Altima beat both by 4MPG.
When the road curves, a light chassis will only get you so far, thankfully
Nissan tuned the Altima's suspension to be compliant but surprisingly
agile. Adding to the fun-factor, all V6 models are shod with 235/45R18
rubber, notably wider than the V6 Camry's standard 215 or optional 225
tires. The suspension, curb weight and tires combine to give the Altima a
slightly higher road holding score than the Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost we got our hands on, but numbers aren't
everything. The Fusion's steering may be numb, but it manages more feeling
than the Altima and even I have to admit the CVT sucks the fun out of
aggressive driving. If that matters to you, drive past the Nissan dealer
and pick up a Fusion 2.0T with or without AWD.
Some may call this a cop-out, but in my book the Accord, Fusion and Altima
tie for first place in my mind. Here's why: each of this trio plays to a
different audience. The Fusion is gorgeous, more dynamic than the Altima
but has stumbled with the 1.6L EcoBoost quality issues. The Accord is a
traditional choice with a solid reputation and greater visibility thanks to
an enormous greenhouse. Meanwhile the new Altima is a stylish elegant sedan
with a powerful and seriously efficient V6. If I were dropping my own money
on a sedan in this category I would have a hard time choosing between the
Altima 3.5 SL and a Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost.
