    I hope they'll be more lucky with carbon fibre than they was with their CVT transmissions.

    I wouldn't own any car that had a CVT in it.

    I think Nissan was the first large user of the CVT and i belive they have been very reliable.

    I don’t know if the Nissan CVT was reliable or not, but the cars drive like sh*t.

    I rented enough Sentras, Versas and Altimas with that CVT to know.

    I drove a 2010 Altima many times and for my body type it was one of the comfortable driving [positions.10 times better the the Avenger. I had plenty of knee room, my left leg did not rub against the arm rest and my right knee was not rubbing against the console
    It did sit to low for easy enrty/exit.

    I own an Avenger. I look forward to driving it home after shuffling the all the various Nissan products which populate our rental fleet. The worst Nissan for seating position is the Maxima with its tall console and door sills. It feels like the driver is sitting in a bathtub.

    Aldo, you are much too kind in your assessment of Nissan.

    Rented a couple Nissan's... The interior noise level is unreal.. tinny and can hear every stone, bump and with my hearing problem having a conservation is out of the question. This might be due to being a low end model but with that said my truck is a ST with 35" mud tires and it is quieter then any Nissan.

    AN reports today that Nissan’s turn around hinges on China.

    China emerges as Nissan's last line of defense

    Nissan is truly screwed, then. Judging by everything I have read in recent months, the Chinese state controlled media is under-reporting the true impact of the pandemic and over-reporting the economic rebound. And looks like things are about to get worse.

    Have had both an Altima and a Murano rental in the last year or two. Both were comfortable and easy to use for me. Actually, got to like them both pretty good. But, yeah, initially the CVT takes a little getting used to.

    I see an awful lot of old high mileage Altimas on the road still, they can't be that bad.

    CVT appeared on 2012+ Altimas. Prior ones had a traditional automatic transmission.
