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.
Wonderful Car, Very great price and really low APR
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.
Not so great
2013 Nissan AltimaGail - Santa Monica, CA02/27/2015
It's really a great car but there's a problem with the power steering pump that causes it to make a high pitched beeping noise at low speeds. So when you're stuck in traffic and the pump starts beeping and whining, it's enough to make you want to scream. Nissan dealerships refuse to fix it. Major disappointment.
