Pros Perfect styling, Goergous back, awesome performance!
Cons None! I love it! great 2+2!
Summary Well they basically killed all sportiness in the altima for anyone who trusts cnet...
It's funny how Nissan decided to give them a 2.5s instead of the sportier 3.5SE to review...Cnet's people were pretty hyped about the sporty appearance of the car and they reviewed it like it was the 3.5SE... which is a sure way of being disappointed:
"Our test car was equipped with the baseline 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to the standard six-speed manual transmission for which we were eternally grateful: had our loaner come with the optional $500 continuously variable transmission (CVT), we suspect we could have kissed all hopes of a sporty ride goodbye."
...and later in the review they just assumed the 3.5SE was the same car with just more horsepower:
" [...] but for those who feel like an extra 100 horsepower, the coupe is also available with Nissan's flagship 3.5-liter V-6. Based on our driving experience in the 2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE , we're not sure of the utility of the bigger engine in the front-wheel drive coupe, particularly seeing as we regularly managed to inadvertently spin the wheels off the line with the smaller engine."
Hello?! Nissan only gave the 3.5SE the Traction Control System (TCS), 17" Aluminum-alloy wheels, Sport-tuned suspension with retuned front stuts and thicker front (24.2 mm) stabilizer bar and the optional Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC). The Altima coupe 3.5SE's new D platform almost completely negates torque steer and the 2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE doesn't even has the same platform.
All in all, it's a pretty disappointing review, since a lot of people are going the think that the Altima coupe is an all show and no substance car... get a 3.5SE for Christs sake if you want to review the "sport" side of it.Updated

"amazing vehicle"on by jake k
Pros all the great coupe aspects at a great price
Cons very few - had rattle at first but now fixed
Summary I'm a sophomore in college now and when I went looking for a new vehicle I was obviously on a budget. However, I wanted a coupe since I don't have to haul any other folks around usually. I found the Altima Coupe to be priced amazingly low for such great styling (has similarities to the 350z and the inifinity g35) and decided on it 3 days after it came out (May 28th).
3 months in and I couldn't be happier. The only problem I have encountered is somewhat audible rattle that occurred from the exhaust manifold. Luckily, the Nissan dealership was able to fix the problem and it's as good as new.
Overall great car for a great price ( mine did not have many options added,,,but hey what do I need them for, it has all I need already)
Pros 2 doors sporty
Cons cheap interior .
Summary This is a pretty good car looks nice, until I seen the 2008 Accord Coupe and it made it look cheap. Seen one at the local dealer they only had one since the coupe come out in 2 weeks. But when i seen that thing i forgot all about the Altima. Here a link.http://www.edmunds.com/apps/vdpcontainers/do/MediaNav/articleId=103650/firstNav=Gallery/photoId=43622

Pros Great commuter car
Cons there are none
Summary I'm not an expert on vehicles, just an empty-nest female consumer. I recently purchased a "bare bones" automatic coupe, 4-cyl for commuting because I think it has an awesome appearance, good mpg and fantastic pricing. I've had several vehicles over the years (vw,chevy,toyota,mazda,audi,lexus) but this car I'm truly in love with. It is a pleasure to drive (smooth handling, responsive acceleration). I was afraid the 4 cyl would be a dog going up hills, but it does quite well. I adore this car so much, I'm even looking at aftermarket extras to "pimp my ride" (but careful not to void my warranty) and I'm a 55 year old female! I'm even going to purchase an iPod just so I can use the AUX port. I've gone crazy over this car!
"A luxury car!"on by Levi I
Pros Fits into small parking spaces
Cons The trunk is small
Summary The 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe is probably one of the fastest and smallest cars Nissan made. This car can fit into small parking space and it is very luxurious. Even though the Altima Coupe is small and fast the trunk maybe a little small for storage.
