Tracy Nissan currently has plenty of the 2012 Altima sedans in stock.

“The reason for our large inventory is that we sell a lot (of the Altimas),” said long-time sales associate Tom King at the dealership located at 3195 N. Naglee Road.

Nearly two years ago, J.D. Powers and Associates ranked the Nissan Altima No. 1 in customer acceptance.

“It still holds true through today,” King said on Wednesday.

The Nissan Altima 2.5 S model has a 2.5 liter DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower and continuously variable transmission.

King indicated that the virtually gearless CVT not only makes for better power but actually gets better gas mileage than that of the six-speed transmission.

The 2012 Altima has a fuel efficiency rating of 23 miles per gallon city – the range here is between 19 and 27 mpg, depending on one’s driving habits – and 32 mpg highway (range between 28 to 38 mpg).

This four-door sedan also consists of independent front suspension, independent multi-link rear and power-assisted vented front disc brakes, and power-assisted rear disc brakes.

The 16 inch steel wheels come with full wheel covers.

Safety features include the Nissan advanced air bag system, driver / front passenger side-impact supplemental air bags, front-seat active head restraints, and front seat belts with pretensioners, to name a few.

In addition, the 2012 Altima 2.5 S is available with the Nissan intelligent key, AM/FM/CD audio system with six speakers and auxiliary audio input jack, and driver and front-passenger seatback pockets.
