2013 Nissan Altima
Since purchasing this car it has been in the shop at least 4 maybe 5 times (pretty bad that it is so many times that I can no longer keep count). The first three times, it was in the shop were within in month period. The transmission kept failing, and the car wouldn't start. The first time it started failing, I was driving on the highway and was unable to pick up speed. Was pretty sure I was going to die. Nissan's engineers looked at it and failed to fix it two times because the problem kept happening. I guess the third time's the charm. But they were happy to take our money each time just the same. One of the times, I was driving the car to the dealership to get the problem addressed and it stalled out while I was taking a left turn. I nearly got killed because a car was coming. The transmission, slow to pick up, picked up at the last second. Since then, the car has seemed fine aside from the minor annoyances, such as the Bluetooth randomly not working, the screen going wonky, the speakers sounding bad, and the tire pressure being all over the place. Nissan gave us a car with paper-thin brake pads (we totally could have died), a small hole in one of the tires, and a shitty transmission. Now, the car jerks back and forth when accelerating and decelerating (but only from time to time). Nissan was happy to drive it around, waste our gas, say nothing was wrong, and take another $250 for doing nothing. 2013 Nissan Altima are lemons. Do not buy one. It costs more in fixes than the car is worth.

My 2013 Nissan Altima has always been fun to drive. It's great on gas mileage and get about 550 miles to the tank. It is very reliable. I only do the minimum service such as an oil change and filter and it still runs like a champ. I like Nissan service department too. They are very reasonable for dealer services and friendly. I have had my car for over 5 years now with no issues so far, knock on wood. Again, it is fun to drive, fast and handles the road well. The car also handles well in inclement weather like rain, sleet and snow. I have taken the car on several long roads trips with no problems. When taking it on road trips and driving mostly highways, the car was getting close to 750 miles to the tank which was amazing. The seats are extremely comfortable. They are cloth, very soft but still supportive. I have three little kids that fit comfortably across the backseat. At one point, we had one car seat and two booster seats in the back at one time and it all fit perfectly. The kids have never complained about being uncomfortable on any trips. The radio system is nice and has a nice led screen. I have a Siriusxm subscription in the car and I love it. The Bluetooth works great and easy to use hands free calling. It has a backup camera that I absolutely love and do not think I could buy another car without one. I have been very happy with my 2013 Nissan Altima purchase and would recommend and purchase another Altima in the future.
2013 Nissan Altima
When I bought my Altima, it was only three years old. It had three previous owners, and it only had one key. Though I was a little sketched out about it having been owned so many times, I have not had any service problems with it. There has only been one recall on Altimas of my model, which was a transmission problem, but thankfully mine was in the clear. There is only one small problem with mine, and it is that the gear shift is broke. I do have many other friends with Nissan Altimas, and not one of them have had this problem. Therefore, I gather it is probable not common. My car gets great gas mileage, and even though I have put about seventy thousand miles on it in the past couple of years, it still runs extremely well. They also are not super expensive. They are very safe as well, which makes it a great car for teenagers or long school or work commutes. My car has cloth seats, by choice. I am not a fan of leather, because it burns my legs in the summer and is so cold in the winter. It also has easily accessed Bluetooth, and hands-free calling. My cas has a very nicely sized, large trunk, which is great for teenagers who play sports or moms. The back seat is very spacious, and all of the seats are comfortable. I would probably rate my car 8/10, and I would definitely look into Nissan again the next time I buy a car.
