i wish i was at the dealership when she purchased the car...at least she could have had the same 3.5. This car sucks, lol! Its slow. I like the fact that it has a sunroof, the seat sensor to cut the passenger side air bag of when your not sitting on the seat and it comes with a first aid kit. I was shocked. Nissan has come a loooong way. Even the interior space seems rather spacy as the 92-99 bonneville. Its HUGE! I still with she had the 6 cylinder. Oh well...she like it

2.5 eh? Packs 10 more horsepower than I do, that thing :o



I would have kept the Maxima. Was it a lease? What made her trade "up"?

Yeah....its slugish. Cant really do anything until after 1200 miles. She bought it at 26 miles and it has 800 now. I did try to pass someone and it felt as if the car slowed down when i mashed the gas. I forgot about the breakin prosses at the time, this is the first time i ever drove a brand new car without the dealer sitting next to me. I read the manual and we have 400 miles before you can put your foot in it. The 2.5 has a surprising 175 hp but i cant feel it.

Her favorite color is blue and she like the altima better than the maxima. I wish i was at the dealer. I wanted heer to get the 3.5. She said as long as that car get her from point A,B,C to Z she really dont care. I got my bonneville that i finally liked now she wanted to get a car she always liked. That shut me up ther, lol

Sunroofs are awesome. My two cars so far have had them, and now I don't think I would get a car with out one. Makes me all clausterphobic without the glass in the roof.
