I have been driving my newAltima 2.5 SL since August 1st. I am getting 18 mpg. I have contacted nissan consumer service and they will send a specilist to look at this low mpg issue. I don't know how the system calculates the Average MPG but I have calculated manually 4-5 times and I am getting 17-18 average. I am little disappointed with this low MPG. I had purchased this car solely based on its good MPG ads. Lets see what happens.

#43 of 128 Potential transaxle issue - pre-recall warning
Oct 04, 2012 (8:44 am)
My wife and I bought a 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL in May. It lurched and shuddered when coasting (no pedals pressed) between 30 and 40 mph, especially when going uphill. We took it to the dealership we purchased it from and picked it up today after 3 tries to fix and it being out of commission for 17 straight days. They replaced the entire transaxle on our new car. The dealership has said that the true issue was a programming issue in the transaxle that should be fixed with a recall, taking it to a dealership to reprogram the TCM (transaxle control module?) maybe. They tried to give us the car back last Friday, after replacing the transaxle, but they knocked a "boot" off when they re-installed the drive shaft causing excessive road noise even at very low speeds. Suffice to say, our car was somewhat of an experiment in this recall getting a new transaxle instead of just reprogramming the existing one. So if you have not heard of a recall (I still haven't even though the dealership said "thousands" of cars have reported the same issue), be aware of the issue and take it to a dealership to get the TCM reprogrammed asap if yours has the same issue.
Other than not having the car for 1/8 of the time we've owned it, we love the car. Even with the recent issues, I do not wish I had bought a different car.

I purchased a 2.5 SV. MPG's have been 31 3 times and 34.5 one time. I have 2000 miles. I have felt the "wandering" in the straight line driving. I had the lurching issue a few times. I thought it was just me and was waiting to see how often it occurred. Overall I love the car so far.

While the fuel economy is displayed just hold the same button in for a few seconds and it will reset.

You should call Nissan's consumer services and register your complain. That's what I did. I am still trying to chase down the Nissan specialist who has been assigned my case. It has been a very frustrating experience with Nissan North America. I had purchased this vehicle based on Its 27 city MPG claim but I have been getting 17-18 max.

I purchased a 2013 3.5L. I have just over 5500 hwy miles & I am averaging 31-33.8 mpg. Almost all my driving is hwy miles. I found using the cruise control helps a lot. I drive apprx 4 miles over the speed limit, so it isn't being babied while driving.
