The Nissan Altima is not the most exciting car in the company’s line-up, especially when you think about cars like the GTR or the 370Z. However, the Nissan Altima is a more utilitarian car that gets the job done day in and day out. Nissan has done a good job of tying the styling together throughout the family. The 2014 Nissan Altima does have its sporty cues with the sharp cut headlights, aggressive spindle grille, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Gone is the coupe model leaving behind only the 4-door sedan and its seven different trim levels priced between $21,860 and $30,660.
And, here’s an additional feature on the electronics in the new 2014 Altima, specifically the Vehicle Information Display. Vehicle information is displayed in a monitor located in between the tachometer and the speedometer. The vehicle information display displays items such as:
Trip Computer Information
Drive System Warnings and Settings (if so equipped)
Navigation information (if so equipped)
Cruise Control System Information
NISSAN Intelligent Key Operation Information

Tire Pressure Information (if so equipped)

Well, A 4-cylinder engine car produces 4,000 controlled explosions per minute inside its engine; as it cruises along the highway at 50 mph the spark plugs ignite a fuel-air mixture in each of the cylinders in order to propel the car down the road. Huge amounts of heat will obviously be produced in the process, which if not controlled, can destroy the engine in minutes.
