terrible car more time in shop than in driveway

2013 Nissan Altima P - roseville, CA 02/21/2015

Now on 4th transmission only have 5000 miles on it since I purchased. Bought it with 7,780 miles started having trouble at 9,000 milesAt constant speed car jutters and when stopped rpm's will randomly drop to zero and the car jolts when it over compensates to regain rpm's

ultimately go with the Altima

2013 Nissan Altima Cliff - valpo, IN 01/06/2015

I almost passed this car by in my search. Am I glad I didn't. My heart wants a sports car. My family needed a practical car. This car is both. The v-6 is powerful, the handling responsive, the interior comfortable and secure feeling. The gas mileage is averaging just over 25 mpg with about 1/3 highway miles. And my lead foot. Is acceptable in snowy conditions, but isn't all wheel drive, so that's to be expected. Other car is a Mazda cx-5. My daughter calls that one zoom zoom. She calls my Altima vroom vroom. It is seriously a performance car hiding in a family car. Better than a 14 mustang v-6 convertible we rented on vacation as far as performance. And much more practical. I love it, only wish mine had premium audio.

Fun coupe at a good price

2013 Nissan Altima C Stokes - Tucson, AZ 12/19/2017

I enjoy driving this car! It�s sporty without the high fuel and insurance cost. I enjoy my commute more because this car is fun and zippy to drive. The Bose stereo is fantastic too. It�s not for families as the backseat is only good in a pinch, but if really needed you can get a couple of people squeezed in for a short drive. The trunk looks small but I�ve gotten a weeks worth of groceries for a family of four in it. I�m glad I purchased this vehicle!
