2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 11/12 (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I bought this car based on its high marks for overall quality of past Altima's. the new design is what sold me.
I bought the 4 cylinder SL with all the bells and whistles. This car is right on the door step of going back to nissan.
It has already had 2 recalls. The next recall will be related to a belt that was put on the first group of Altimas that did not fit which is causing extra noise on acceleration.
There is now a high pitch squeal that Nissan knows about coming from the power steering motor that Nissan is calling
For $30,000, it is not normal. Anyone that has one of the first 2013's
have them check that belt because mine needed to be replaced.
