I just bought the 2013 Altima 2.5SL but without the navigation for out of door price of $28,088 with floor mat and Splash guard in Atlanta. I went to almost 7-8 dealership around the area and spent almost 3-4 hrs at each dealership negotiating on the price. Nobody was offering me price below $28,500(out of door)
Then I went to a relatively small dealership and first thing they asked me is where I work and when I gave them my employer name they said I qualify for VPP program and this is what they offered me:
26,200--selling price (250 below invoice price)
No doc fees
total out of the door I paid 28,088
which I think is quite a good price. Plus the salesperson was very friendly to me and they did not engaged in any pressure tactics whatsoever.

I don't understand why people post OTD prices. Since sales taxes vary from state to state it makes comparisons difficult. The same can be said for tags and title, although these are smaller charges. It would be better to give only the list price, including destination charges and options, along with the equivalent negotiated price. Tags and title should be listed separately to show the dealer is not inflating these charges to make up for a low negotiated price for the car.
#30 of 111 Seat question
Aug 28, 2012 (6:52 pm)
Drove a '13 Altima tonight with cloth seats (my typical preference) and was impressed with the "zero gravity" seats from a comfort perspective Only problem.....my back was soaked with sweat after a 20 minute test drive. I have cloth in my Pathfinder and never have an issue with "hot" seats (one reason I dislike leather) but I noticed the Altima seats really hug you closely. Wondering if anyone else has noticed this and/or maybe it was just a fluke? This model had the black seats and was sitting in the sun all day....I will be buying the tan interior regardless. Otherwise a nice driving car. Skeptical of a first year model....I drive 25k a year and really don't need teething issues...

Not enough people own it to write reviews on the MPG. Reading all the magazine writers on Bing & Google It seems that they are recording close to EPA numbers. I suggest the next time U fill up make a note of the mileage(#A). When U fill up again make a note of the mileage( #B) Then Subtract #B from #A . U wil also make a note of how many gallons of gas u filled your tank on your 2nd fill up. DivideThe difference between #A and #B by the number of gallons on your 2nd fill up and that will be your real world mileage. I did that for one year on my 02 Altima on an Excel worksheet and that was my personal MPG. Some weeks were great, others were really bad. BTW how does the car drive? Do U hear a lot of enine noise on the highway?
#35 of 111 I feel drifting & wandering, move side to side

2013 Altima 2.5s, I bought new, drive 800 miles so far. I feel drifting & wandering, move side to side. It happens when drive high speed 60-75 miles on highway.
I search Edmund review found several owners have the same problem like me.
One owner post said "it cause by steel rim out of round".
My questing is if cause by out of round rim, then I cange to alloy wheel will solve the problem?
or this drifting problem is cause by other parts not the out of round rim?

I test drove multiple 2013 Altima 2.5SV's with alloy wheels and they all required constant steering corrections on the highway, so I don't think changing to alloy wheels will solve your problem. Good luck on finding a solution.
