The v6 has some pep but the transmission just cannot keep up. Decent interior.

2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

Backup camera flickers and does not work frequently. Flimsy parts, have replaced interior door handles twice. Transmission problems much sooner than I would expect, so I am really worried about how it will hold up in the future. Additionally, it has been the most costly car I have ever owned. My previous car was an Acura tl and extremely reliable, never had to put any money outside of routine maintenance, bit this Altima has been expensive to own.

2013 Altima is very comfortable and dependable.

2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

I have not had any problems with my vehicle. All service has been maintained without any extra issues. The vehicle has been very dependable. Very comfortable ride for my family and very comfortable to drive. The only issue I have is with the navigation system. You have to but the updates which I feel updates should be automatically.

Fantastic, loaded, roomie vehicle.

2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

I love my vehicle. It is a large sedan which is perfect for having children. I also love that it has a large trunk. It is loaded with a sunroof, navigations, XM radio, USB port, power driver seat and power windows. It rides smoothly. I have never had a problem with my vehicle or my other Nissan Altima that I owned!

I love my 2013 Nissan Altima

2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

AC doesn't work well when stopped in traffic. While moving, especially on the highway it works very well. The high speed on the windshield wipers isn't very fast. It's sometime hard to see while driving in a hard rain storm. Side visibility is sometimes an issue, but not real bad.

2013 Nissan Altima buyer review

2013 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL

I really love my car. The leather seats heating up and that's my favorite feature. My car drives smooth. So far I haven't had any problems with my vehicle. I love the blue tooth and the multiple charging ports. The Altima is very spacious and the bucket seats are extremely comfortable.
