Pros

All new right down to the platform; lowered engine for better handling; 270 hp V6 available


Model Highlights

The completely redesigned 2007 Altima not only improves handling with its new platform, but it also takes steps toward affordable luxury. Plenty of airbags, Intelligent Key push-button start, and a/c are standard, while Bluetooth capability, nav system, HomeLink, a rearview monitor, and dual-zone automatic temperature control are some of the available options.

The 3.5 SE has a sport-tuned suspension, which means retuned shocks and struts, stiffer springs, and thicker front and rear stabilizer bars. It is also the only Altima offered with 17-inch alloys. Both the 3.5 SE and SL have standard ABS, traction control, and electronic brake force distribution. Electronic CVT is available on the S and SE models, and standard on the SL.

As for the hybrid, the 2.5L, 158-hp four-cylinder engine and 40-hp emissions-free electric motor deliver 42 mpg in the city, with a 700-mile range per tank. Various option packages can add satellite radio, a moonroof, power seats, and a navigation system.


Model News

Nissan's best seller, the Altima, received a major redesign in 2007, it's first since 2002. The four-door sedan now rests on the all-new "D" platform, the engine has been lowered by 30 mm, the front suspension has been redesigned, all of which has improved the already credible ride. The wheelbase is nearly an inch shorter, but due to interior changes that included moving the cowl and rear glass, the size of the interior and trunk remain largely unchanged.

The Altima continues to offer two engines: the base and S trims have a 2.5L four-cylinder with 175 hp, while the SE and SL models sport a 3.5L V6 that puts out 270 hp (vs. 250 hp for 2006). Both engines have a drive-by-wire throttle, and Nissan's Xtronic CVT with manual mode is available as an option on all but the base trim, which instead is only available with a 6-speed.

New standard equipment for 2007 includes front, side seat-mounted, and side curtain air bags, push-button ignition with Intelligent Key, disc brakes all around, and a one-touch driver's window. The quality of materials has been refined, and the exterior has been freshened as well. Touch-screen navigation, Bluetooth, a rearview monitor, a Bose audio system, HID headlights, and dual-zone automatic temperature control are all now optional equipment.

The hybrid Altima, a first for Nissan, became available in the winter of 2007.


Value Writeup

With the Altima's MSRP starting at $17,950 and the top-end 3.5 SL at $28,400 before options, this car is priced comparably to the class-leading Honda Accord and Toyota Camry but with more standard horsepower. More striking, the hybrid version is $2,000 less than the Toyota Camry hybrid and more than $6,000 less than the Accord Hybrid.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING 204,361 MY 2007-2008 ALTIMA, ALTIMA COUPE, 350Z, MURANO, ROGUE; AND INFINITI G35 SEDAN, G37 COUPE AND EX35 PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH CONTINENTAL AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS' OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM (OCS) CONTROL UNITS. A VARISTOR IN THE OCS CONTROL UNIT LOCATED IN THE PASSENGER SEAT CUSHION MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED OUT OF SPECIFICATION. UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, THIS COULD CAUSE AN INTERRUPTION OF SIGNAL BETWEEN THE OCS AND THE AIR BAG CONTROL UNIT (ACU).

Consequence
THIS COULD RESULT IN THE PASSENGER AIR BAG BEING SUPPRESSED WHICH COULD FAIL TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE PROTECTION IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL TEST THE SIGNAL BETWEEN THE OCS AND ACU SYSTEMS USING A SPECIAL TOOL TO CHECK THAT IT IS FUNCTIONING AS DESIGNED. IF NECESSARY, THE SEAT CUSHION (CONTAINING OCS HARDWARE) WILL BE REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE MANUFACTURED TO SPECIFICATION. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 3, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261 OR INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200.

CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
