2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Steering: big problem with "drift"; easy to deal with in the city, but on a long highway trip? No way. Requires constant, irritating correction.
Even using your fingers - after 50 highway miles, my forearms feel the fatigue.
"Squealing": yes; some think it's the brakes, some think it's the steering. For me, the brakes squeal every morning upon leaving my garage.
Door handle: lock popped out just by closing the door.
Horn: Must push hard in the middle of the wheel (no more "polite" reminder to the driver in front of you that the light changed).
etc., etc., etc.
Nissan response/service: Very poor.
Heavy, luxury feel; sleek appearance; fun electronics.
Best possible improvement? - Honesty regarding consumer problems, and fix them or take the car back.
These are not issues that can be discovered during a test drive.
I have the same drifting problem. If its windy forget it. You couldn't drive in a straight line if you tried. I've had mine since Sept. and I cant wait till my house is built so I can get out of this piece of crap.
