    Awesome , Sporty Car — Most fun car I've ever had. Rear driving experience. Responsive throttle gives you the racing feel, while being wrapped in luxurious leather bucket seats is like a warm hug. All around great car, just expensive upkeep and only takes the expensive fuel types.

    Pros: Powerful engine,  great looking design , Heated/cooled seats . Leather.

    Cons: Maitanence was pricey.  Had to drink expensive fuel.

    Maxima Mania — This is a powerful, great handling car that has always been a joy to drive. It has the power to fight traffic and handling to tame any curves thrown at it. The seats are comfortable and make long rides more enjoyable.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great handling car

    Cons: Not getting to drive it enough, my daughter won't let me.

    Its Been Tested And Tried True By Me, Nissan Makes A Great Car, And Their Suv's Are Nice. — Car performs great its got enough power to accelerate to highway speed within seconds.Takes corners like a dream with the 18"s on it. Haven't put any mods into it and now have like over 110,000 miles and been in probably 7 accidents but it runs like a champ!The Paint wears quick and the chrome finish dulls after months, interior is roomy and comfortably seats 5. Gotta maintenance it a lot in Maine pretty cheap.Dont get good city miles but on hwy. I get probably 480 miles to tank. The car is fun as hell to drive for a full size 4 door sedan!!!Wish I also owned a GT-R , I'd settle for a nice G7 though by Infiniti.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Exciting to drive , great response with correct tires, and ride is so smooth it feels like you are on air,I have Continental Extreme contact DWS, Fantastic tires.

    Cons: I have noticed a huge drop in my mileage since i crossed the 100,000 mile mark, the brake pads wear out fast, Use premium fuel only it really makes a difference, and the stupid window on roof that doesn't open i hate it!!!

    A Nice Cheap Fullsize Car With Good Build Quality — Performance is ba build quality is good with nice material and is put togeather well. No rattles or noises. I drove the car for about 150miles all highway and the ride was bad. The gear box is bad and shifts hard driving around town. Its not fun to drive by anymeans.

    Pros: looks are good, interior is good and well put togeather,has lots of interior room and trunk space

    Cons: seats are uncomfortable,driving position is bad,gear box is bad, downshifts are very hard, ride is bad
