2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I wanted to like this car.
The electrical system has been very shoddy.
The key fob malfunctions frequently and the remote doesn't work if it is below freezing.
The car squeaks when going over bumps and the dash vibrates at 45 mph.
The seats in the car have worn very poorly and look like they have been in the car for over 100k miles.
Great looking car, very poor quality.
I would buy another
Nissan but would steer clear of the Altima

I have had my car for 2 months now. I love it, but I too have had the same issues. They fixed the squeak from under the car. It ended up being a loose break cable that needed tightening. Something about they are hand tightened. My key fob has been acting up too. They tried to blame it on my speed pass. I called the mass turnpike speed pass center and they confirmed what I thought. No one has ever had an issue with the transponder. I told Nissan that if they don't get it right I will ask for the lemon law to be applied. Anyone else file a complaint with Nissan for this issue? That would do anything unless people complain.
