2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
The major issue is that we are getting 23 to 25 MPG in the City and no better than 30 to 32 on the Highway.
This falls far short of the rated 27/38 that is heavily promoted by Nissan.
I did a lot of research on this before buying to make sure there werenÂt any issues with stated MPG.
I donÂt believe anyone is getting over 27 in the city unless they are doing a lot of coasting.
Nissan has looked at the vehicle 3 times and as of the last visit said they also got 23 MPG but found no mechanical issues with the vehicle.
The dealer recommended that I contact Nissan Consumer Affairs.
They said that temperature and using the A/C will reduce MPG.
Car should be rated for 25/30 at best.
Engine noise and modifications to actually get 27 MPG in the city under normal driving conditions like stopping and using the air conditioner.
