Noisiest car I ever had
By frespo on


2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I bought my new car ~ 2 months ago. Since the beginning it made a loud "grinding" engine noise. I think it sounds like a loud diesel car. Took it to the dealer and they could not find anything "unusual". You could hear it over the radio, which is not very good.
This car is noisier than the Civic 2001 it replaced!
On gas milegae, I was looking forward to getting at least 30. No such luck. With the car brand new it gave me 27 and now it is down to 25.
It does not have a USB port, which comes standard with cheaper cars.
In short, not the new car experience I was hoping for. Do yourself a favor. DO NOT BUY AN ALTIMA. There are plenty of good cars out there. Many are priced lower than this
