Interesting that people are worried about Recalls.... Go to the TSB web site and check them out. Most of the recalls are really interesting, nothing that would stop me from buying a coupe... I have a 07 have 15K miles mine is a 2.5S w/ CVT, fully loaded minus Nav, I love it.. No problems at all, I'm averaging 31 MPG and living in PHX,AZ the AC is the best I have ever owned... Its not my first Nissan and it wont be my last....

The interior of the Coupe is almost identical to that of the sedan. The only difference other than its size is that the coupe has a handbrake while the sedan uses a foot-operated parking brake. At the same time, the sedan has one more cup holder in the front. I also agree that while this is the first Nissan I've owned, providing that reliability holds up, this won't be my last.

Has anyone else had a squeaky noise in the steering column after the car has sat in the sun for a while? Mine's been doing this for about a month now, and my Nissan mechanic assures me that it's nothing. It's just that the plastic around the column is expanding, and thus, rubs against the other plastic making a noise. Once the car is cooled off in the garage, it quits doing it.

Thanks for the blog response. What is the TSB website? What made you buy the car? It's my 1st big purchase since I bought my now 17 yrs old car and I want to make a good decision about it. I appreciate any info. I am so taken by the altima coupe!

I recently purchased, yesterday a 2008 Altima Coupe 3.5. Today I went our traveled 65 miles. 95% of the trip was highway driving, at 65 MPH with cruise Control. My average miles per gallon reach a big 14.8. I was surprised and the poor mileage to say the least. Has anyone experienced this and according to the dealer it will improve in several weeks. I purchased the car to save on gas and it seems that it's getting lower then my Grand Cherokee, which has a Hemi?
Any comments on MPG would be appreciated!

Hey RJ, we currently have 2 08 Nissans, mine is a Altima Coupe 2.5S with CVT and the other is a Rogue SL. The first couple of tank fulls the miles got better. YOu didn't say what kind of transmission you have either, but give it a couple of tanks, the engine is tight... Current on my coupe I'm getting 31, the Rogue is getting 25.

Thanks for the feed back on the gas mileage. Today it moved upward to 15.9, not at all where I want t to be. However, on the bright side it's getting better. By the way my transmission is an automatic.
