2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 11/12 (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I just bought an SL model and am very pleased so far.
I rented one (S model) from Hertz before I bought one, and. got 40.8 MPG on a 90 mile highway trip with the cruise set at 69.
That sold me.
A couple of thinfgs of note:
The car is very comfortable, but the S model lacks lumbar support - you notice after a while.
The oil change interval is 3,700 miles -expensive over the life of the car.
There is a 500 rebate on the car that I didn't know about until after I made my deal.
I paid 26,300 after the rebate.
I also rented a new style Malibu as well.
It also drives great, has a nice interior and got 37 mph on the same trip. I found the cars drove similarly, but preferred the altima styling
