any updates? we bought a 2013 altima 2.5s 2 weeks ago and also notice we get around 17 mpg (the highest going to 20) even on the highway, my husband spoke with nissan usa and they claim that the advertised 27/38mpg is not based on nyc mileage (what kinda crap is that?) I thought a highway was a highway regardless if your in ohio or driving to long island...anyway it would be interesting to hear what they tell you. BTW we took the car to the dealership, they tested the car and said everything checks out fine, nothing wrong with the car.Report it
There must be something wrong with your car. I bought one in August and consistently have been getting 30mpg in the city and 39-40 hwy. There is no way driving style could account for your low mileage, they did do a software download right after I bought it, maybe that's what you need.Report it
That's what I think. I think I got a lemon. Two days ago I finally spoke with the regional specialist, Nissan NA. and she asked me to bring the car to the dealer and they will run some tests and then we will take it from there....being bounced around...extremely frustrated. Let's see what happens.Report it
Unfortunately, my 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5SL continues to deliver low milage. The average goes up to 18-19 (maximim) once I take to a long drive on Henry Hudson highway for couple of hours. But it goes down as soon as I come back into the city. My city driving is also not just in Manhattan, I drive to Long Island, Queens, get on FDR and westside highway and still the mileage do not improve. Since I got this car, I have not seen 20MPG. Nissan NA. told me that I need to bring it to the dealer for check ups before they can do anything. So, let's see how they resolved this issue. I took my car to the dealer for check up 2 weeks ago and now bringing back for the very same reason (low MPG issue) again next week. If this issue is not resolved, I will contact the corporate customer relations again and see what they say. Ahh! this is going to be a battle with Nissan.Report it
