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


Review

I bought this car based on Features it has to offer. After driving 5000 miles problem started. The break lights comes on randomly while driving. took it to dealership 3 time and they said nothing wrong. Car stopped on road with engine sign. They replaced part and after driving another 100 miles it stopped again. Dealer replace another part. Air conditioning stop working. they have to replace compressor. Side mirror came loose and was making rattling sound. They fixed that and after a month side mirror switch stop working. Navigation is also not refreshing while driving so they said they have to replace SD card. Complain to North America Nissan but they are not doing anything to replace this

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


Review

Problems seems to be popping up.
First time I had a car stop behind me when backing up...accident since no warning.
Next, back up screen showed electrical waverings and passenger air bag lit up.
Passenger door whistles and sounds as though something is open when not.
CD player only holds ONE disc at a time (bad, bad) and recently when I did a phone call while CD was playing and ended it, a message saying No USB connection)
Lastly (for now) the car slips into neutral at 35 mph and has to be shifted from drive to neutral and back to drive.

Probably should have bought another Honda Accord since it seems Nissan, though has great styling, conveniences and good gas mileage, has many "bugs"


Best Features

Like styling, conveniences with arm rest, wheel grip, box on shit that encloses miscellaneous, and steering.


Worst Features

Holds more than one CD. Screen showing mileage and temp needs to larger. Back up screen needs to warn if car in back up.

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


Review

Car seemed like a good value with a good mix of features vs. price when purchased.
However, ran into many problems in the first 7,500 miles.
There was noise coming from the passanger tires. Constant rattling from the center cosole where the CS player is located.
It was made of very cheap plastic and would get louder in hot weather. The sunroof would rattle.
Had it replaced once but turned out to be the frame of the car above the driver's head that shook loose from car body. Probably a bit dangerous when I think back. I found the seats to be extremely uncomfortable and had back and leg pain.
Replaced with Honda Accord and there is a huge quality difference! no problems after 10K miles


Best Features

Style and look


Worst Features

Needs a better build quality. Vehicle felt cheap all around. Did not have confidence it would have any value after 2-3 years.

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


Review

I've a 2013 Nissan SV which is a great vehicle and i love it. I wasn't a fan of Nissan vehicle but the new design gave me a push in buying it and also giving it a surprise gift to my lovely mom.
The vehicle is fun to drive, with its great interior features and liability. Everything is top of class for its own level compared to other vehicle such as Honda, Toyota.
Despite that, i think a few things needs to be made such as the Brake Light System & Air Bag System.
The Air Bag System is finally fixed & i'm glad the dealership saw that i wasn't creating stuff up. Next fixing should be the Brake Light System because I've changed my Nissan 3 times.
Other than that, vehicle is Awesome.


Best Features

My favorite features in the vehicle is the easy accessibility to some functions in the car such as voice command, and dashboard configuration.


Worst Features

Despite that, i think a few things needs to be made such as the brake system update. On some of the 2013 Nissan vehicles, there is a brake light which turns "ON" when you driving. Sometimes, it turns off when you park & turn off engine. I have had this issues with 3 Brand New 2013 Nissan vehicles which i got from the dealership. The 1st vehicle had that issue & i took in, they didn't see anything, i changed vehicle & it happen on the 2nd vehicle & i changed again. The new one (3rd vehicle) is still having the same issue. I have told the Dealership but they can't figure out what's wrong. It will be great if something is done to it because its scary driving & seeing brake light "ON".

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


Review

I had purchased my 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S sedan in December of 2013, no problems noted, what a great car it's been so far !
Sleek/ sporty in appearance, the 2.5 4 cylinder engine has plenty of get-up and go, and the gas mileage is excellent too.
I'm not experiencing unwanted engine/ transmission noise as some report, and the CVT transmission shifts flawlessly.
Road manners is outstanding also, the vehicle remains near perfectly even/ well balanced in hard turns at above average speed, and can navigate a road w/ many twists/ bends in it in a sports car like manner while not having to let up from the gas.
All in all, it's far more than just your average family sedan, great job Nissan !


Best Features

An all new design both inside and out for 2013, very sporty in appearance. The base model 4 cylinder 2.5 engine which is advertised at 182 hp runs strong and guaranteed to impress. The NASA inspired zero gravity seats are very comfortable for daily driving and long distance in particular.


Worst Features

#1. The manufacturers choice of tires need to be upgraded for a more quieter ride during normal driving conditions, and for better traction on wet/ snow covered roads. If you reside in a snow covered region you'll know exactly what I'm speaking about. I soon plan to replace manufacturers tires w/ a better quality of tire and more aggressive tread design based on conditions mentioned above. #2. An 8 way power drivers seat should be standard on all Altima models that come equipped w/ the power drivers seat option vs. the 6 way power drivers seat that is presently offered on lower priced versions of Altima.
