2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Bought the new 2013 Altima SL. Beautiful inside and out but with one major flaw. The noise level inside the cabin on the 4 cylinder during acceleration is beyond what a new car should be. Nissan promotes this car as quiet which is a long way from reality.
I had this car back to the dealer a few times and Nissan also sent out a National Rep. and after replacing a couple parts, on a brand new car,
I was told that the noise I am hearing is normal. It's amazing that when the engine drone on acceleration is so loud that I have to turn up the radio to not hear it is considered normal.
It's really a shame that Nissan overlooked this problem because it's a beautiful car.
Overall comfort when driving.
Do something to keep the engine noise out of the cabin
