    Good Value, Good Looks, Everyday Driver With No Frills Or Spills — This is my 4th Altima. Fit and finish are good for price point 4 door sedan. Overall usage of vehicle is daily driver commute. Gets an average of 30-32 mpg with a range of approx 500 miles on 1 full tank of gas. Peppy starts from stop lights lets you get out in front of traffic. Road manners are good with just a bit of wind noise at speeds over 60-65, which can easily be drown out with a little music. Services are just the basic fluid changes. I've driven all of my Altimas over 100k without any major service issues, which is why I keep buying them. When tires wear out I always change from the continental OEM ones to a better wet traction tires, either Goodyear or Michelin, not a big fan of the noise the continentals make as they get within about 20k of lifespan. Good value and when I trade in at the Nissan dealership I have always gotten more for my trades.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage for 80+ mile daily commute

    Cons: A few wind noises from side mirrors over previous model

    My Altima For All Seasons! — As stated the quick get up and go is great/definitely dependable to the 11k mile point. The negs are the locked headrest/ rear seats not much to brag about!>Paint quality has been issue since purchase>Reps have never called me after 15 months ownership and several calls to have Reps look at the paint issues around driver's door hinges and mark under paint on passenger door> I even mention that the "swirl like halo paint pattern in the QAB>Pearl white is very robot flaw oriented?>But no Manufacture response on any of these issues!>nuff said.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: cute, fairly comfortable to drive/quiet except accelleration/very dependable!

    Cons: The driver's front headrest are locked forward tilt >that definitely gets neck in strain on longer drives!/Paint quality around drivers' door showing thru primer grey>not so sweet'

    Great Vehicle — The 2013 Nissan Altima is without a doubt a smart purchase. It's sporty, yet economical, you get a lot of vehicle without paying a large price. The fuel econmy is my favorite thing, least would be the hub caps instead of alloy wheels.

    Pros: Even the base model comes nicely equipped. The fuel economy is amazing.

    Cons: Hub caps instead of alloy wheels and no usb port

    Quick, Agile, Nimble, Efficient And Comfortable — Great seats and overall comfort. All technology is helpful and easy to use. Features not available in the class like heated steering or LED lights make it a great value. Drives well and never lacks power despite the excellent fuel efficiency. Got new Michelin Primacy tires and they justify the investment. Improved ride, braking and road manners.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Fantastic front seats and excellent fuel efficiency

    Cons: Trunk not too accessible

    Completely Satsified With My Commuter Car — This is a great car for the price. It's affordable, lots of extras, comparable to a luxury car without the price. Comfortable, smooth ride. No issues with this car. In giving up my SUV for a commuter car I made sure to do lots of research on the mid-size cars with the best gas mileage and the best value for the money. The Altima wins hands down, no doubt. I am completely satisfied with my new car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent gas mileage, huge trunk space, roomy interior. Lots of extras for the money.

    Cons: None.

    Nice Family And Commuter Car — I've put 26,000 miles on it the first year. I'm getting 32mpg with a good mix of hwy and city travel. Car is very comfortable, not especially quick, but I'm older now and the gas mileage is more important than that. Today's issues are a slight whine from the engine, almost like a whistle and the passenger no airbag light comes on when there's a passenger in the seat. They've adjusted the sensor, but 160 pounds and it still comes on. No diagnosis on the whistle yet. Fun car, I really like it and so far it's been great, almost as good as my old 2002 Maxima (Loved that car).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: Noisy, wind and engine

    The Pros Outweigh The Cons — This car gives you power when you ask for it and stops when you need it to. Seating is almost as comfortable as it gets with the cloth interior, the only thing lacking is the lumbar support. The bluetooth phone system is often glitchy, enough that I don't even use it any more. I have to pull over and turn the car off and back on just to use the radio after the bluetooth locks up on the lcd screen. One drawback is that the car does not feel confident in hard turns, it seems like the reactive steering system overcompensates too much when it kicks in. The car doesn't like rain at all but that could be in the tires or it may have something to do with the steering system as well. I'll have to try different tires when they are due and post an update if I can. There is a bad engine smell when using the outside vent which the sales person assured me would go away after break-in...it didn't. Overall. this car is still the best in its class in my opinion. During normal daily driving; It feels as if you are driving an expensive luxury vehicle. As long as you aren't trying to be a racecar driver it should treat you very well. If you have the 3.5 liter engine don't skimp on the oil, make sure to use the genuine Nissan ester oil or you may have a continuous valve tapping sound. It is far more expensive to maintain but will keep your engine happy.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Powerful engine, comfortable seating, tons of rear passenger and trunk room, smooth transmission, brakes are excellent

    Cons: Handling is wanting, engine smell using outside vent doesn't go away after break-in period, bluetooth glitches
