2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Just purchased a 2013 Altima 3.5 SL. Aboslutely love the car for the $. Did an extended test drive and fell in love. BUT, didn't purchase the car I test drove.
Apparently there is a low-pitched whine that is linked to the power steering that some of the Altima's have and other's don't.
The test car didn't. It can only be heard clearly when the windows are up and the radio is off. But once you know it's there it's almost impossible to ignore.
Recommend turning on the car and listening before purchasing.
The seats are very comfortable and the gadgets are great.
