Wonderful Car, Very great price and really low APR

2013 Nissan Altima Charlestine Joyner Hudson - Hoffman Estates, IL 10/02/2015

This is the second Nissan Altima that I've purchased and I can truly say that I love the Nissan product. They are very reliable, durable and great cars to have. I even purchased a Nissan Altima for my 22 year old daughter earlier this year and she swears by it...that it's the greatest car, which low gas mileage, the acceleration and high performance.

Wonderful car

2013 Nissan Altima LeeAnn Steed - Ringgold, GA 06/27/2016

This car has been fantastic! After daily driving for 4 months, I am still so glad I made this purchase. The safety features are outstanding, the technology and entertainment is top notch, and the power for a 4-cylinder car is amazing. It drives like a V6, but with the gas mileage of a smaller car. The handling is smooth, and I can barely tell the variable transmission is changing gears.


2013 Nissan Altima Krystal Woods - Smyrna, GA 12/28/2015

The car looks nice, but it's overpriced for the problems it has. I just hit 40,000 miles and started having issues with the tranny. The car jerks repeatedly in stop and go traffic. Small backseat compared to competition. Cvt is definitely an acquired taste.
