Pros Have your cake AND it eat too! The "all new" 2013 Nissan Altima delivers best in class mpg and fastest zero to 60 times!
Has all the modern gadgets anyone would want including a bidet and dryer for the back-up camera!
Cons Factory needs to be more real world with stated mpg ratings. Never got near the 38mpg hwy. 31 at best... so far.
Summary Of course, a cars looks are personal preference but in Pearl White my 2013 Nissan Altima SL looks like an expensive up scale family sedan ... google the 2013 Infinity M37 in white and compare for yourself. This car stands out in a crowd. And no, I'm not employed at Nissan. The fit and finish of the cars interior is first rate with two of the most comfortable front seats I've ever sat in. Before making a buying decision I spent many hours on-line sifting thru the reviews and the new Altima was always in the top five with most reviewers admitingly dropping the cars overall standing because of their dislike of the CVT. Which in my opinion is misguided. If they expected a sports car experience on twisty canyon turns then stay out of a family sedan ... thank you very much.
In driving the 2.5 4 cylinder I find it does what I ask of it within the limitations of it's design. In other words it gets me where I want to go without putting up much of a fuss.
To be honest I think most car guys that write reviews are by this point somewhat tainted with their own sense of car "lust". I mean they won't acknowlege a car that has best in class mpg ratings while at the same time also happens to be the lightest and fastest. I think that would be a major engineering feat worthy of praise winning that car first place in any lineup, but alas it seems some cannot see the forest through the trees. I can though. And before you plunk down your hard earned cash on an also ran, take a loaded Nissan Altima SL 2.5 out for a nice long cruise. I have a good feeling you'll never look back.
Thanks for your submission!
