Good pickup if you hit it right, Comfy ride, and a pleasure to drive

Cons

Bad gas mileage, Straight line performance kinda sucks, Turbo lag.

Quick When Used Right. — This car has always been enjoyable. Got it with leather and the but warmers work great. Once you get this thing past 90 its like driving a sports car it just doesnt want to stop. The turbo works magnificently.

Pros

FWD, so good in snow (I'm used to a RWD, so . . . ). Awesome exterior paint. Good acceleration for only 180 HP.

Cons

Bad bad bad gas mileage (I guess b/c it's a v6). People tailgate wagons. Or maybe most drivers in MA are Massholes and they tailgate everyone.

Quicksilver On Wheels, Sort Of! — This is our baby mobile, and it's kept her safe so far. Even with all the crazy drivers in Massachusetts. I recently had to swerve violently to avoid a total moron who decided to turn left and we totally did not hit them. It was a miracle, and I give 98% of the credit to the car's handling.

Pros

Great running car with exceptional steering, safe with many air bags

Cons

Car Is Great, Just Sucks That It Has A Sealed Transmission And Soooo Many Parts — Too many parts, special expensive fluids, sealed transmission, a little over priced, does not hold value as it should over time. Safety is great has many air bags, but not a lot of room in back for passengers if driver and pasenger are over 5'-4".

Meet Inspektor Gadget — What's not to like ? It has great features It even has a hint of lux... Plus, its really great in Chicago winters as was my Maxima. Neither has the cachet of my old Beemer, but I 've enjoyed driving both. Check it out.
