2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Acceleration problem because of failed transmission. By the time you figure out what the problem is it is out of warranty and Nissan won't help. And they know about the problem. They should extend warranty at the very least. If not for that would be a great car.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Love this car! Very reliable, never had issues. The car rides great! Accelerates beautifully and handles very well. Not convenient for car seats and it gets kind of annoying having to move the seat constantly but it is very confortable!

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


Review

My 2013 Nissan Altima SV 2.5L at 100K out of no where stalled at a red light. There were no warning signs, and no problems prior. Went to the dealership and was told that the CVT Transmissions are junk, and that the torque converter is seizing up. Don't worry though, Nissan makes sure that neither the dealer or consumer can replace this part, without replacing the entire transmission. Their design does not allow for the converter to be replaced, which means a brand new transmission must be put it. I cannot believe Nissan only put the extended 120K warranty up to 2010, now I am out thousands of dollars with a car that does not run.

Review

My husband bought our 2013 Altima in 2016 from a Nissan Dealership. Since then, this car has been in the shop at least 4 maybe 5 times (pretty bad that it's so many times that I can no longer keep count). The first three times, it was in the shop were within in month period. The transmission kept failing, and the car wouldn't start. The first time it started failing, I was driving on the highway and was unable to pick up speed. Was pretty sure I was going to die. Nissan's engineers looked at it and failed to fix it two times because the problem kept happening. I guess the third time was the charm. But they were happy to take our money each time just the same. One of the times, my husband was driving the car to the dealership to get the problem addressed and it stalled out while he was taking a left turn. He nearly got killed because a car was coming. The transmission, slow to pick up, picked up at the last second. Since then, the car has seemed fine aside from the minor annoyances, such as the bluetooth randomly not working, the screen going wonky, the speakers sounding bad, and the tire pressure being all over the place. Nissan gave us a car with paper-thin break pads (we totally could have died), a small hole in one of the tires, and a shitty transmission. Now, the car jerks back and forth when accelerating and decelerating (but only from time to time). Nissan was happy to drive it around, waste our gas, say nothing was wrong, and take another $250 for doing NOTHING. 2013 Nissan Altimas are LEMONS. DO NOT BUY ONE. It costs more in fixes than the car is worth. Also, screw Nissan too. Buy a car from anyone else.
