Nissan for all family members!

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I have never had any problems with my Nissan Altima. I was afraid I would because it has the CVT transmission. I have had this car for 4 years. I know have 89;000 miles on it. I get 27 miles to gallon in town. I get 34 miles to the gallon on the highway. I only have to drive about 30 miles a day. I only have to fill up my tank every two weeks. The only problem I have seen is the car sits low to the ground. It doesn't really do good in the snow. I have black cloth seats. I would probably do leather if I had to do it over again just because leather looks nicer. I guess you could say we are a family of Nissan cars. My daughter has a Maxima. My son, mother and father drives a Nissan Altima. I would recommend this car to everyone.

- Kim B

Although the car has high mileage some days I can't tell it's 6 years old.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Overall the car is quality and durable however, the check engine light comes on usually when the temperature drops and the gear shift no longer works without releasing the shift lock button. It gets great gas mileage and as long as you keep up the other the required maintenance the car gives you its value. The only thing I would say disappoints me is that the gear shift issue has not been recalled and seems to be a recurring issue with these vehicles.

- Elena D

If you go over speed limits. Mapping alerts changes in speed limits saves tickets.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Rides very smooth. Dash has helpful warning lights that I have come to rely on. Tires have sensors that alert me for low tire pressure and reminds you when it is time for oil and maintenance. I have navigation that is quite helpful and fairly accurate on mapping. Even landmarks appear periodically. Big 16 gallon gas tank, do not cheap to fill but I get reasonable gas mileage with which I am pleased. Stereo is good quality and I enjoy it on long trips.

- Robin S

My opinion of my recently purchased Nissan Altima.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I have only had my used Nissan Altima for about 2 or 3 weeks so as of right now the only problem I have seemed to come across is a whining noise when being started and it will only sometimes putter feeling as if it is going to stall out while having the gas accelerated but when released the puttering seems to fade. I do think there are quite more blind spots then with the car I had before other than that I've been enjoying the vehicle.

- Andrea A

Great Gas Mileage and Ride for size

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My Altima is the perfect size for a small trip. Plenty of leg room and comfy seats. We had leather seats installed and front seats are heated. It gets great gas mileage. We have close to 85,000 miles and average mph is 37.6. The only I dislike about my car is the headlights. They do not light your path well enough. For this reason, I will not buy a car without trying it out overnight. We use the brights as often as we can.

- Deborah G

Reliable and cost efficient

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

The vehicle has been extremely reliable for 6 years now with issues being minimum. This car is very attractive to the eye, while being one of the safest and most durable cars on the market. I have noticed recently problems starting to occur, the engine needing to be serviced, but it is at 85,000 miles so that is to be expected. Overall this is a highly recommended vehicle when it comes to cost and efficiency.

- Kyle J

The push start is the best feature to the car the keyless operation is the best

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I haven't had any problems with my car yet. It's performance is really great (goes as fast as you want to go). Very reliable drove from Texas to Florida twice in 2 months. It has been the most comfortable ride I've had in years. And the features are great I have the standard Altima I love the push start easy to work easy to steer and see out all mirrors the interior is very nice love the black shade seats.

- Justin L

Spacious, affordable, great for any age driver, reliability and gas mileage

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

A Nissan Altima has great gas mileage and is a comfortable drive. Maintenance is low and cheap. There is plenty of room in the front as well as the backseat. There is also plenty of trunk space. I like that it takes the lowest octane for gas. There is a blind spot where the windshield and frame meet. I wish my model had heated seats or cooling seats, but the heat and air condition adjust quickly.

- Madeline A

I like the space and petal white color.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My pearl white Nissan Altima is so cute. I really love the fact that it has so much space and it really fast. I just learned how to use overdrive and cruise control with this car and it makes traveling amazing! There are some problems that come along with driving in general so otherwise as long as I keep up to date with maintenance my car runs smoothly and is reliable.

- Taylor Y

Review of a 2013 Nissan Altima

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

The car is great on mileage and provides a lot or room. As a new parent, my biggest complaint is that I don't have a headrest to place a mirror on to see my rear facing child. The features on the car are basic with having a basic model but I do like the on screen options. I have also noticed that my bluetooth connecting doesn't always match what is on the screen

- Timothy S

Even tho the problems of my vehicle I still think it's super nice.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I love my car. Although it does have some problems. My car was 4 years old when I bought it in 2017. Just recently last year 2018, it started giving me some problems. First it was the power steering hose. It ripped. Then the right arm suspension started failing. Had to fix the fuel pump as well too. Other than that the body and comfort of my car is really good.

- Yuri S

Shouldn't have traded in my Honda Civic

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I have had more trouble out of this car. The air compressor went out after the first summer, all 4 fuel injector connectors snapped, The OSC system quit working, and a 50 dollar tire sensor went out all under 100k miles. All my research points to multiple people having these problems plus a headlight dimming problem and Nissan has done nothing about it.

- Sara M

Push start, spacious, and runs smooth.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Nissan Altima performs pretty well. Extremely reliable get me back and forth to work everyday. Very comfortable and spacious. If you have a large family this car isn't good for that. If you're single or have small children this is a great care. Maintain the car keeping up with oil changes and things like that the car will last a long time for you.

- Tae C

Get what you pay for, not much more.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

It seems to run through tires quickly. It also has a strange idle when you go down a hill. It is good on gas, and seems to be fairly cheap to repair. I have had issues with it randomly turning when I shift quickly from reverse to drive. Sometimes the keyless entry does not want to work. I am at 150000 miles and it seems to still be running well.

- Matthew P

I love my 2013 Nissan Altima very much and would like to upgrade.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My car is very comfortable to ride in I have two babies which means I have to put two car seats in the backseat which fit very comfortably with enough room for another passenger. The Nissan Altima year of 2013 gas mileage is very reasonable to me I do you have to travel a bunch for doctors appointments and such and I can do so affordably.

- Alicia D

It's a nice car for how many miles it has

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Well it's a used car so there is some issues with it misfiring but other than that it's a smooth ride nice looking car and good ac, very roomy, I love how it is also a push to start so it's impossible to lock your keys in the car ! The car will beep and not lock if they are inside the car so it's pretty nice, also has a spacious trunk

- Paris G

The benefits of a Nissan in California.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

For a reasonable, high fashion vehicle. It helps me get from a to b. Auxiliary jack added to the radio for playing music from my phone; also able to change the audio setting of the bass & treble. What's also reliable (especially living in California) I could put $20 towards gas and I fills up my gas tank for several days of driving.

- Benjamin W

Very Reliable, Cheap, Low Maintenance, Affordable, and serves the purpose.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

It is a very reliable car, and affordable. Low maintenance cost, easy on gas, and spacious. I have had the car for almost 4 years now, and I only needed to change the tires, brakes, wiper blades, oil and filter. No major problems with the car. It is cheaper than most cars in its class, but better than them when compared to cost.

- Ahmed A

It is white Push start Cloth interior

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Nissan was my very first car, it is very reliable and strongly built. I haven't had any problem with it so far. I think it is really good for first time buyers and if you're looking for something that will last you a very long time. I know a lot of people with Nissan and they all love it no problem whatsoever

- Vanessa L

Nissan Altima 2013 review just for you

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Transmission problem, wish it had dark interior, is very loud when running, good speakers, love the stereo system. Great highway mileage, I am very pleased with how much room there is in the back seat, can easily fit 3 car seats, hard to use the accessories setting, like the automatic lock in the door handles

- Nicole C

4 door sedan, comes with Bluetooth, large trunk, and sport driving mode

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Drives well and has great gas mileage! The only complaint I have is that sometimes I skid on water or if I'm gassing from a stop- I think this is because the car is light and somewhat small. This car is very reliable- I have yet to have problems and I have had it for 6 years. Very comfortable, has Bluetooth

- Mary W

Great on gas and very dependable

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My car is great on gas and I haven't had any problems out of it other than general maintenance. Very dependable car. I recommend this type of vehicle to everyone that is looking for a gas saving vehicle. The car also has great features like Bluetooth compatible which comes in handy when you get a phone call

- Kayla B

4 door smokey gray sedan with dark tinted windows and everything else all factory.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Transmission had to be replaced on 5 year old car cost $5000 to fix, wish I knew that in the beginning cause all you here about is Nissan's are reliable but they have transmission issues. The car runs smooth otherwise and is very cheap to get fixed and no other major issues other than typical maintenance.

- Kristin M

Nissan Altima review 2019. Best vehicle purchase.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

My car is great on gas. Very reliable. And very spacious. I usually drive out to the mountains for hikes in my vehicle. On a full tank, I would usually make it to and back from my location with more than a quarter tank. As long as you keep up with your oil changes, this car will be the best thing ever.

- Val J

Pros and cons of the 2013 Nissan Altima

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I love the gas mileage and the reliability of this vehicle. However it doesn't do well in any inclement weather and sits extremely low to the ground. Causing the car to scrap more times than not. The interior is easy to maintain and it seems to have several recalls on important factors with the car.

- Kristina L

My all time favorite car. Space is very important and this car exceeds it

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

The vehicle itself is very spacious. The trunk is a perfect size to fit all kinds of things in it. I have 2 kids so this car is very reliable. The drive is smooth. Interior is a very nice color. No problems so far which is nice. The design of the car is very eye appealing. All time favorite car

- Mary R

Nissan Altima always reliable

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Had some exhaust issues heat plate rattle seems to wear on tires a lot. It is reliable and it performs like a sports car. It seems like the batteries in the auto remote start rim out quickly. We have also went thru a lot of brake changes. It has never broken down though and always starts.

- Carrie C

My Nissan Altima.. it's the greatest vehicle coming out

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

it's very good on gas and very comfortable on the inside. It handles very well on the road and has a nice physical appearance. It's very reliable and sturdy in the rain and in the snow. In all types of weather. The inside is very comfortable and can ride for a while with any problems..

- Willie B

Overall my car is very durable and dependable, no real issues.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I really haven't had any problems yet. The most I had to do was charge the battery, the Altima is a safe and dependable car, I also get the oil changed every 3000 miles, new tires, new brakes, but other than that no real issues. The Altima is a good travel car as well good on the road.

- Keisha W

Smoothly run 2013 Altima Sedan

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I like the sound when you drive. It runs smoothly. I use 93 for gas. It is comfortable. It does not have a GPS. You save money on gas, and I pump gas every 2 weeks. You have room to put in things when you move out. The design of the car is nice. You push the button to start the car.

- Dana T

Great car! Great buy! Durable and dependable.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I have had the car for 3 years and haven't had any major problems. The car is 6 years old and no breakdowns. The car drives perfect. It's not noisy and drives great. The body style is sleek and roomy. I love Nissan and will not hesitate to purchase another vehicle in the future.

- Crystal B

Love driving my Nissan Altima!

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I purchased this vehicle in 2014 and have had no issues besides replacing the mass air flow control. The car is spacious enough to fit a car seat and 2 adults in the back comfortably. Smooth ride, good gas mileage, only routine maintenance (oil changes, brakes, tires) needed.

- Nik C

An interesting detail is the sport feature.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Great on gas. Lots of legroom and great sound system. Car has been reliable for the duration of the lease. The Sport feature allows the car to drive with top notch speed. Car has driver power seat, with directional settings. It is also very comfortable during long road trips.

- Jason M

Gas saver. Dependable. Reliable.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

I love it easy on gas, cheap maintenance, I have 140,000 miles and it still runs smooth and brand new. I love the feature that it shows how many miles until empty, and when the oil or tires need maintenance. Had it for 3 years and no issues whatsoever. Best car purchase

- pamela M

I like the push button start. And very simple to use.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

Sometimes after I go to the stations for gas. When I put my car in drive the car will suddenly go dead but will turn on after the button is pushed. I have not had this issue look at because it does not happen all the time. Other than that the vehicle is a great car.

- Kayla M

- Kaitlyn P

The car is awesome, I love all its features!

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

- Jesus I

Nissan Altima is a 3/5, but a good car.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S

- Aaron D
