2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
I've had my Altima seven months now, and have had way too many trips to the dealership for a new car.
That is why I buy new -- to avoid dealing with problems!
There are a lot of things I love about the car.
But there's also a lot I hate about the car, especially the whine from the power steering pump (I complained so much that Nissan replaced the steering pump, but the new pump makes the exact same noises).
That constant noise at low speeds drives me crazy.
I've also had it in several times because of rattles from the moon roof and bolts needing to be tightened, and the passenger airbag sensor not working.
Comfort, gas mileage (average 34 mpg), and looks.
Fix the electronic power steering pump problem!
You shouldn't have to live with an irritating whine on a new car.
