conclusions

What can be said about this car? Yes, the Nissan 2018-2019 Altima , he became noticeably brighter, more attractive, sportier appearance. Added in power got more modern equipment. For the US market the car fits perfectly. Then you and the powerful engines, and solid dimensions, as well as sports equipment, and of good appearance. Nevertheless, we have still Teana, although modified, improved in some components.

Numerous reviews of the owners indicate that these cars remain dissatisfied quite difficult. However, there is a point that is slightly spoils the overall impression of the Altima. The fact is that when driving at speeds of over 140 kilometers per hour (such as the US rate is not far from uncommon), the machine starts to behave very badly. Control is no longer so clear, we have to be vigilant and very careful. If distracted, you will begin to wear on the sides. Given the nature of our roads, the risk increases even more.

The rest of the new fifth generation Altima leaves a pleasant, positive experience. Given its cost, wanting to buy a car this would be more than enough.
