2010 Nissan Altima Coupe


Looks like the grille might be similar to the new sedan design.
Not sure why they would want to make the coupe more conservative than it is now…

Doesn’t look like a worthwhile update. At least from this far away blurry shot.
We’ll see the whole thing real soon, stay tuned.

  1. I would never buy a Nissan with a CVT. More and more failures are starting to crop up. Read around on the Edmunds forums and user reviews.

    Hell, my co-worker with a Rogue is about to get his SECOND replacement CVT. That means he will be on his third transmission.

  2. To the anonymous that said they would never buy a Nissan with CVT, I applaud your ignorance.

    Nissan uses CVTs in a whole line up of their vehicles, some of it using newer "versions" of the CVTs.

    The Versa, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Murano all use a CVT and I don't see anyone complaining about it.

    The Rogue is using a modified version of the Altima's CVT due to the AWD where they have to add the driveshaft and some complaints have come up about a noise BUT never have I read of a failure pattern. Please don't spam the internet with your misinformation. State the facts, nothing more.

    Read any of the Nissan forums, or the Edmunds forums.

    You will see that there are plenty of owners having problems with that "great" CVT.

    My 2006 Maxima had CVT issues one year into ownership.

    Their CVT is a belt unit.

    What's your point?

    It still has a failure rate that is much higher, and much earlier than a conventional transmission.

    Subaru and Audi use steel belts in their CVTs.

    Subaru just started using these and Audi only offers the CVT in their Fronttrac (FWD) models which are seldom sold.
