The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid versus the 2014 Toyota Camry Hybrid. So, which of these two fuel sipping sedans is the better buy?

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
Indicators and Warnings
Tire Pressure Information (if so equipped)

We’ve all heard a car or truck thunder by that needs a new muffler, but there’s actually more to the exhaust system than just the muffler. The exhaust system has three main functions. First, it safely gets the hot exhaust gas from the engine, out through the tailpipe. Second, it treats the exhaust to remove harmful pollutants, and third, it muffles the engine noise What is meant by the fact that it safely moves the exhaust? Exhaust gas is poisonous.
