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

Review

On February 19, 2013, when I pressed the button to open the trunk from inside the car, the lid came up with enough force to make the corners of the trunk lid shatter the rear window. The dealership maintains that a gust of wind must have caused this, although I and another witness told them that it wasn’t unusually windy. I pressed the release button and *CRASH*. There was no pause or delay. If it was a gust of wind, it would have had to come up just as I pressed that button and in just the exact location to fling that lid open. That's a heck of a coincidence, and I don't believe in coincidences that illogical.

I love this car. It's beautiful and luxurious. It eats up the road but you hardly feel like you're moving. And it's very quiet. We did have on a 30 degree drive way in snow and ice when the wheels locked up and refused to turn. There's nothing in the owner's manual about this.
