Worst car I've ever purchased!
By mnebags1 on


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


Researched and found Consumer Reports rates Nissan well above Toyota Camry and as I've had two Camrys with absolutely NO problems I put my faith in Consumer Reports. Took a 2013 Altima for a short, 5 mile road test on a busy road and it seemed fine.
Received keys, headed home on highway and discovered a severe vibration and the car wandering all over the road.
Six visits to dealer, one wheel was replaced. At highway speed it's scary to drive, must keep two hands on steering wheel to keep car in lane, keeps wandering all over road.
Took car to tire dealer who found three tire rims "out of round".
Have filed under "lemon law" and hopefully will go back to Toyota.

Best Features

NONE, cheap interior

Worst Features

Test drive their own cars!

I drove 800 miles already. Everything is good so far. The only problem is "wandering" on highway speed 55-75 miles. I can not find which part to cause the problem. See your post ! Tire rims "out of round" ! I can let my dealer to check. Thank you !
