MPG hoax?
By dml817 on


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


As I drive all highways to and from work, I thought the MPG rating made this Altima the perfect choice.
Rated at 38mpg highway, I figured worse case I'd get mid 30's. I've had the car since October and have yet to break 30, in fact I average 27 mpg. Highway. Dealer told me "you need to drive it 12,000 miles before getting that high".
A full year of driving?
I don't think so.
They also could not hear the interior rattling sound that I heard driving in, and driving out.
Rattling coming from the inside of the panel between the driver's door and back door.
All in all, I do love driving the car.
Comfortable with good acceleration (4 cylinder). Fix the mpg and it would be perfect.
