2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

Just returned from a 2500 mile trip to Fl and while mileage was not as good as my 10 Camry and not as good as expected, I still averaged 37 interstate driving. Fell in love with the seats and was able to get out of the car after 2 or more hours of driving feeling relaxed. Can't believe they can make that much difference. Have read all comments about this vehicle and agree with most, positive and negative. Noise issue with power steer whistle was finally resolved after complaining numerous times. Unfortunately not the transmission noise which is annoying. Service tech says its due to trying to get max gas mileage. If that's the case they missed their mark. Have buyers remorse due to this!

Best Features

Tech safety features, seats, driving experience, visibility, brakes,body style, back seat comfort, heated steering wheel and handling

Worst Features

rumbling noise from cvt at low speeds under moderate acceleration, whistling noise from power steering unit, heated seats are miss labeled - High, heats only the seat bottoms while Low, heats only the backs / had to show me the schematic to prove to me that was actually designed that way / there was actually some wires going to the seat bottoms on Low setting, but couldn't feel any heat being emitted, location of trunk and gas release
