    16 Altima no regrets, had 15 Camry. I see the gas pump every 4 days, not every 2 days lol.

    2016 hyndai sonata hybrid. 40+mpg. Spacious. Reliable. Smooth ride. Also rated one of the most quietest engines ever made. When I drive it, I feel like I'm in the cockpit of a flying plane. It's so smooth and quiet.

    Hyundai makes really beautiful cars now days.

    Buick LaCrosse. Very comfortable ride. Afforable. Qualifies for Black. Passengers constantly complement how nice and comfortable it is.

    2017 Mercedes Benz S550. Uber X passengers love the roominess.
    Just Kidding. If that was the car that I drove, not a single X passenger would be inside.
    2016 Nissan Altima is my car

    I'll let my icon answer this question.

    As for the CVT reliability just follow up on the maintenance schedule with Nissan and it should be fine.

    Lincoln MKS. Got it two years ago with 40k miles on it and now at 145k miles. Still rides like the day i got it. I'll get it up to 200k, sell it, and buy another one. Car is an absolute tank.

    How do you drive it? Are you hard on the throttle? CVT is a very sensitive trans. I agree. I am reaching 55k hopefully nothing happens to mine but who knows.

    What do you hate about Hyundai? Mind elaborating a little? I've driven Camry, Altima, Accord, Highlander and Pathfinder and find my Sonata the best
