2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

We purchased a 2013 Altima the month they were released. The good: Great ride, great seats, excellent climate control, fuel economy, generally good controls. The bad: Transmission failed at 13k. For months we were told the jerking and shuddering was normal, then the trans failed completely. Wind noise. Paint easily scratched/marked. Engine is noisy esp under light acceleration. CVT transmission is annoying, acts like the old 2-speed "Powerglide" in Grandma's Impala. It's either revving like crazy or so low the engine lugs. Nissan was good about replacing the transmission (this time), next time who knows? Accord, Impala, Fusion, Camry are all better options.

Best Features

Great gas mileage. Comfy seats and ride. Logical controls.

Worst Features

Bluetooth is tedious. Transmission failure. Paint issues. Noisy engine. CVT makes acceleration seem slow.
