2013 Altima SV - Nothing but problems - not recommended
By altima13sv on
2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Car seemed like a good value with a good mix of features vs. price when purchased.
However, ran into many problems in the first 7,500 miles.
There was noise coming from the passanger tires. Constant rattling from the center cosole where the CS player is located.
It was made of very cheap plastic and would get louder in hot weather. The sunroof would rattle.
Had it replaced once but turned out to be the frame of the car above the driver's head that shook loose from car body. Probably a bit dangerous when I think back. I found the seats to be extremely uncomfortable and had back and leg pain.
Replaced with Honda Accord and there is a huge quality difference! no problems after 10K miles
Style and look
Needs a better build quality.
Vehicle felt cheap all around.
Did not have confidence it would have any value after 2-3 years.
