#113 of 128 2013 SV

I had a 2011 Maxima S that I bought new in January 2011. I loved driving that car; but, I didn't love owning that car. The back seat was cramped, the trunk is on the smallish side, the driver's leg room is a little tight and paying for premium unleaded got really old. I traded it 2 weeks ago on a new Altima 2.5 SV. Yes, I miss the V6 at times, but I really enjoy the car, otherwise. The first thing my 14 year old said when he sat in the back seat the first time was "Wow, this is a nice back seat." Loading baseball equipment into the trunk is easier with more room. I still have Intelligent Key, rear air vents and automatic climate control; but, now I have rear view camera, remote start and satellite radio--all things I now use every day. The extra 10 mpg on regular unleaded gas is nice, as well.
Nissan did a nice job of upping the luxury feel and apparent build quality of the new Altima. The dash material and construction is solid like the Maxima's. The interior is quiet with no squeaks or rattles. It feels like it was put together very well.
I know it's still early, but I am happy with my purchase and I look forward to driving it for years to come.

Tomorrow will mark 4 weeks with the Altima and I'm getting about 26 MPG in mixed city driving. The Maxima I traded would get 21-22 in the same driving, so I'm up about 20% in mpg and I'm using regular instead of premium unleaded. I'm expecing that number to go up some as the car breaks in.

#118 of 128 Avoid buying an altima?
Jul 25, 2013 (11:51 am)
with all of the negative comments I have been reading here and on the altima forums on the 'net, I have been thoroughly dissuaded from purchasing a 21013 altima. The long range prognosis for the CVT does not seem to be very promising. Is there anything I am overlooking in the Altima's favor? Seems like the safer bet to buy is a sonata...

As is the case in many forums, people only talk about their cars when they have an issue. For everyone complaining here, there are 100s of people who have nothing to complain about.
I don't own an Altima, I drive a Sonata (2009) currently, but drive the car and make the decision yourself, not because I told you to buy one, or someone else told you not to buy one.

I agree with the graduate post. I purchased a 2013 Altima SV 2.5 9/1/12. So far other than the trans recall to update software that addressed the shifting issue I have had no complaints. I experienced the shift issue. The recall/update fixed it. I have 12,000 miles. MPG's have avg between 28-32 in normal mixed driving. I use these forums as a guide to looking for and solving problems with my vehicles with as little difficulty as I can. These forums have been excellent for that.

Hey even i faced the issue. The dealership is giving some lame excuse, stating it is expected. I have faced a major issue with transmission, 3 days into the purchase of my car (just 3 days, i was totally unhappy). They replaced my transmission, yet when i ask them to replace my car. They say, that we have to go to the dealership with the same issue for 3 times to fix it.
