My beautiful Pearl White Altima has been in the stable for around six weeks. To say that I loved it would be a lie. To say that I hated it wouldn't be much of a stretch. It's been to the shop twice (for the same 2 issues) and the last time had added a couple more. The noisy transmission (which the tech that rode with me said "that isn't right") was determined to be normal by a Nissan Technical Specialist) Deaf needs to be in that flowery description. They said they couldn't hear the rattle in the dash, but we heard it clearly before we left the lot. They did fix the brake light coming on arbitrarily, but I could live with that if you didn't have to turn the radio wide open to keep from hearing the cacophony of transmission noise emanating from under the voluptuous aluminum hood... If i won the lottery, I'd drive this rattling heap of rubber, steel, cheap plastic, and aluminum to Nissan HQ and burn it in effigy in their parking lot... I loathe Nissan for selling such horrible garbage that they refuse to stand behind. I loved Nissans before this. I'd buy a used Yugo (if you're too young to remember, look one up) before I'd ever buy any Nissan car. The consumer affairs folks lie and thieve as much as their crooked salespeople. NEVER AGAIN. I HOPE NISSAN READS THIS almost as much as I hope potential buyers do. It will save them a lot of headaches.Report it
I've had my 2013 Altima back to the dealership several times for a couple of problems. One being that the vents blow cold air when the temperature is at any setting up to 88 degrees, then at 89 degrees, it turns to a heat blast. I haven't been able to understand why this is an intermittent problem. The sensor on the dashboard may explain that mystery.Report it
