2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I really wanted to love this car, but the quality is sub par to put it mildly.
We replaced a 2012 Nissan Juke that we loved (rear-ended and totaled).
I kick myself every day for not buying another one.
The transmission is noisy, the power steering pump is noisy, and the interior rattles more than an American car with 200k miles on it.
Nissan says that the transmission is supposed to sound like the old "baseball card in the bicycle spokes", but I'm not buying it.
The Juke transmission was perfect, but this one is perfectly horrible.
I get mad every time I have to drive it.
I'm done with Nissan.
My next car was going to be a 370Z, but I'd buy a Korean car first...
Every day is a day closer to getting rid of it...
Discontinue. Buy all back that have been sold. Dig a big hole, and bury them all.
Forget this nightmare ever happened.
Fire all the engineers that had anything to do with the car....
I hate to post on my own review, but the only imaginable way that this car has 4 star rating is if Nissan is paying their employees to post favorable reviews...
It's that horrible.
I got a great deal and I would have felt screwed if I'd have paid half of sticker price.
