Read the reviews before buying or leasing

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


The 2013 Altima is a science project from Nissan that the consumer is leasing or buying unknowingly being stuck with a car that has major flaws, one being the CVT chattering issue that Nissan claims is normal. It is like having a manual transmission and attempting to start off in 3rd gear, doors that rub against the lower side panels during cold weather (dealer repaired after 2 days in the body shop), whining noise coming from power steering, blind side warning lights that come on within the cabin at random during rainy days.
These issues are reported on any site that reviews the 2013 Altima, but the Nissan rep claims it is the first time she has heard of them.
