We should! I am bringing my car back to the dealer again (3rd time) for this low MPG issue. They keep telling me that I need to drive more before the car starts delivering better mileage. I have already filed a complaint with the Nissan North America. According to the New York's Lemon Law, the dealer needs to make every attempt to resolve an issue first. And, if the dealer is not co-operating, or not able to resolve the issue, then you can move on to the next step. i-e file a law suit. I have started preparing a list of issues, dates, conversation with the dealer etc. I think you should do the same.
#65 of 128 MPG dropped after CVT recall service on 2013 Altima
Dec 08, 2012 (4:21 pm)
I bought a 2013 Altima SV (2.5) about 3 months ago and have been generally happy with it.
Was getting 40+ MGP highway. However, I took it in for the transmission recall servicing when
I got a recall notice in the mail and now my highway MPG has dropped to 32+ which is rather
Anyone else experience this issue or have suggestions on what to do about it ? I'll be taking it
in for the 3 month service next week. Thanks.

Yes, I have the same problem. It doesn't have lumbar support. I toss a small
cushion at the back of the seat or add an after-market lumbar support unit you
can get for under $10 and the problem is usually solved.

I took it in for the 1st service and they said there was a recall on the car. The car was saying 27 mpg and now the highest it has gone is about 22 mpg. Although it took a few week to get there! I am also having a problem with my screen going blank for a second and coming back on. It does it all the time.

I got a 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV at the end of November. I have filled up the tank 3 times since I got the car and it averaging 20-21 mpg overall. I cant possibly drive the car any softer or slower. The MPG rating is a COMPLETE LIE. I complained to Nissan North America and they are sending a special mechanic to check the car. They told me that the mpg rating is just an estimate and I told them that would be an acceptable answer if the mpg was even close the the advertised claim. If its not broken (which Im almost certain its not), and they dont offer some sort of resolution, I would like to join you and any other 2013 Nissan 4 cylinder owners who are experiencing the same issues in possibly pursuing legal action.
I recommend anyone reading this to record their mileage with pictures of the trip reading before and after filling up with each tank of gas, as well as saving the gas receipts to match the trip reading after filling up.

Just got the new altima and I will not be keeping it long term. I have the 2013 SL 2.5 and MPG is a dismal 25. Very very disappointed.

We bought the altima SV on 1/2/2013. I agreed that we cannot get more than 20 MPG no matter how we have driven.

Don't drive yourself crazy over the MPG. Life's too short to waste a lot of energy on the difference between 22 and 27 MPG, and a couple of hundred bucks. There are lots of terrible MPG cars on the road, and you made a choice to be one of the good guys. So pop a cork, sit back, and watch the giant SUVs rumble down to soccer practice. Not while driving of course...
#72 of 128 Repeating queestin: How to reset avg fuel MPG
Jan 11, 2013 (1:28 pm)
Earlier someone posted the same question (how do you reset average fuel MPG?)
An answer came back which I didn't quite understand(have an SL 3.5 with Tech)
"While the fuel economy is displayed just hold the same button in for a few seconds and it will reset. "
Does anyone know how to do this with a 3.5 SL / Tech ?

The steering wheel menu button. Press and hold it down when you're at the fuel consumption or the trip summary display (which includes the fuel consumption summary).
