Comfortable & good to look at, but that's it.

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


Nissan pushed this car out too quick IMO.
Replaced my totaled 2012 without hesitation as it was perfect (final year before the 13 redesign).
Less than a year old and 15 different warranty repairs, 30+ visits to the stealership.
Moonroof rattles constantly, removed and reassembled, then completely replaced along with windshield and headliner.
Still rattles, filed lemon law, pending buy back.
Beware, wait for 2014 and still wait for reviews on that model to come out.

Best Features

Interior design, a lot of bang for the buck. If only quality came with it.

Worst Features

Tighten it up. Squeaks and rattles almost immediately off the lot. CVT shudder and rumble at low RPM. Coming close to suggested MPG would be nice.

Hi gski1 After filing lemon law were you approved and was able to get your money back? I am having the same problems especially with the rattling of the moonroof. I am debating to file lemon law. Thanks
