2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


After reading all of the pros we drove the car and opted for the V6SL with the Nav pkg. Don't do it. Yes the saftey stuff is OK, but the nav pkg is circa 1990. Very poor graphics, & everything requires 2 or 3 steps to do. It's a Bosch system - & is tied into the radio & other electronics. All in all it's a terrible system, brand new, never used by Nissan before. Had we dug into the nav system we wouldn't have bought the car.

Best Features

The V6 is nice, the driver's seat is comfortable. The XM is nice on the 7" screen.

Worst Features

Get rid of the Bosch Nav system, it's terrible. Separate the trip computer from miles per gallon. Resetting one , resets both - misteak! Too many switches to set for default settings for door locks and too many other settlings. Cream colored carpet and mats is ridiculous - should be brown in the tan interrior car. Make the "paddles and option as is in the Maxima - they obsqure the light and wipper stalks. Will have to cut them down so my wife can see what she's doing. This is our first and last Altima -
