Nissan will start selling its new 2013 Altima sedan online this week, almost three months before the car hits dealerships. To excite customers into placing advanced orders, Nissan will throw in a scheduled maintenance for 3 years or 45,000 miles said Nissan’s vice president of sales and marketing Al Castignetti.

Castignetti said that Nissan believes it can sell up to 25,000 units of the 2013 Altima before the car officially goes on sale in late June.

Combined sales of the Altima sedan and coupe in the United States jumped 39 percent through March to 96,360. That made the Altima the second-best-selling car beyond the Toyota Camry on the stateside.

Refresher: The 2013 Nissan Altima will be available with a 2.5-liter QR25 4-cylinder engine producing 182-hp and a peak torque of 180 lb-ft. Optionally, the 2013 Altima will be available with a 3.5-liter V6 VQ35DE, which keeps its 270-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Prices start at $21,500.
