  • "My 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe 3.5 has been an incredibly great car. In order to take full advantage of the 3.5 V6 engine, you must use premium fuel. Considering my driving habits are more aggressive, pedal to the metal, my average fuel economy is 19mpg in city, and 24 mpg highway. If I fill up my car using regular fuel, my fuel economy is 23mpg city, and 28mpg highway. Now when I drive more fuel efficiently, I can average 30mpg city, and 42 highway which is quite impressive. The handling of the car is great! This car handles turning into corners very well. The adaptive steering is precise. It's stiff when you want it at high speeds, and smooth at lower speeds like when your pulling into a parking space. Comfort in this car, especially for a coupe is perfect. The seats are bolstered perfectly, comfortable at both short and long trips. My only complaints about the car is that the steering wheel does not telescope and the blind spots.My favorite part about the car (other than performance & handling) is the flexibility of the interior. With the back seats having the ability to fold flat, I am able to put my midsize dog back there at ease, and place over 200 campaign yard signs in the vehicle with room to spare.Nissan truly did an amazing job with this car. I just hit 90,000 miles and the car is running strong."

    Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

    By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work.
