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

It Is Very Fast And It Looks Great At The Same Time( Inside And Outside) — my car's interior is black it's exterior is gray it has a navigation system i chose it becuz it is my favorite car and i didn't just want to get somebody's car off of the internet, i've had it since 2005 it's been driven about 40,000 miles i enjoy how it goes extremly fast in a short period of time and how the dash board lights up and i wouldn't improve anything on this car

Pros: it's ability to go real fast in a short amount of time and it's navigation system

Cons: nothing

Overall:

A Nice Sized Sedan With Luxury Options Molded Into An Afforable Daily Driver — The car has nice curb appeal, stock 18 inch wheels and tires are nice. Cargo room in the trunk is surprising and the rear seats fold down to allow for even more room. 6 Speed manual transmission and front wheel drive is great, wish it was rear wheel drive but then I can sell my Maxima for a G35 if I really had to have it. Fun car, great power and fits my entire family comfortably.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of cargo room, headroom in the front and rear seats is wonderful, amount of speakers for the non-bose system is surprisingly great, 6 speed manual is easy to shift and plenty of power is available

Cons: Sky View windows in the roof are neat but useless, power windows are slow, turning radius is lacking, suspension sits awkwardly high in the front and sags in the rear.
