Want my 02 SE back
By wild8willy on


2012 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Had and 02SE that was totalled.
Just replaced it with this car.
CVT is horrible, sluggish and noisey.
Bose radio is rotten compared to my 02.
On the positive side, interior materials are great.
Care feels heavey and bolated to drive.
Steering is numb.
Tailpipes are uneven and one stick out further than the other.
Trunk is crooked one side is rubbing the bumperskin.
There are burrs around the lip of the wheel wells.
There is a paint defect in the middle of the roof that looks like Nissan painted over a 2 inch worm.
I can not wait to get rid of the car and it has a little over 300 miles on it.

Best Features

Back Up camera.

Worst Features

Get rid of awful CVT. I will never buy another car equipped with one....so that means nissan is out... Quality control at plant, how about looking the cars over before shipping them out.

How about you inspecting, test driving and looking the car over? Seems you did neither!
