Re: New Altima Motor Trend TV (D. Olsen)

"If this, if that... then it's a flawless car." Well, that statement can apply to practically any car.
The shortcomings of the interior was a major one, imo. For people who don't care about interiors, then yes, it's a great car. But I believe the majority of us still consider having a quality interior to be quite important.
I sat in a top-of-line Altima at the Montreal car show 2 weeks ago, and could not believe how cheap the plastics were. It just did not fit in with everything else the car had to offer.
That pop-up storage bin in the centre console was an absolute joke, as was the light, loosely-held, plastic stereo buttons they used. And that so-called "cupholder" felt like a dollar-store kindergarten lunchbox.
It really seemd like all these plastic pieces were thrown into this car as an after-thought. Very disappointing on an otherwise great-looking car with performance to match.
