Review after owning car for one year
By kitchen1 on


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


I withheld judgment even after the numerous issues I've had but now it needs a new transmission at 12,000 mi.
I've owned a '04 Altima and a
'11 Murano.
In a word, this '13 Altima is junk.
Within the 1st mo of ownership I had a blinking navigation screen (replaced), leather trim on the center console backseat unfinished (replaced), heated seats wired wrong (new wiring harnesses both sides). Within 2 mos I developed the infamous "lugging" transmission (new torque converter and belts= no difference)
Within 5 mos the driver/passenger windows = excessive wind noise (both outside mirrors replaced).
Now clicking noise in transmission requiring new transmission.
I'm just a my 1 yr ownership.

Best Features

seats comfortable

Worst Features

CVT transmission is junk. Quality control non-existent on my vehicle.
