Heya - just thought I'd say I saw a G20 at my college (Grove City) today. Didn't get a real close look, but from what I know of it it's a nice car and extremely reliable - cool to see a few Infinitis around (they are very rare where I am). http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

Yeah Grove City seemed to me to be sort of Ford/Chrysler/Chevropontiac sort of country to me. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif Actually I don't remember what cars
I saw there. Mostly boring ones, as Grove City students are boring provincial sorts compared to, you know, the intellectual worldly types of Ann Arbor. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif Nice place, although I'm partial to Hillsdale. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif

I see G20s around here frequently enough, but not as many as Jettas. Waaaaaay too many Jettas here. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/mad.gif

Hehe. You're right about the type of cars around here. Hardly EVER see any luxury cars. If one car out of every 200 you see is either an Infiniti, Lexus, Acura, BMW, or Mercedes, that's impressive. It's even worse in my hometown.

Yes, Michigan is far less provincial than Pennsylvania, and the Big Three automakers are probably more at home in Grove City than they are near Detroit.

I am sick of G20s here in SoCal, the look seems a little old to me. I drew up a new G20/Sentra and want to post it here sometime. I know it won't happen ( anew G20), but I can hope. I walk past a high school every day and see about 3 (two black and a White) of course, there's aout 10,000 Jettas, corollas, accords, S40s, etc there.

I'm sick of Jettas... my neighbors in Rochester work at VW/Audi North America HQ across from DCX HQ, and so do plenty of other people in town. And then Ann Arbor is high on Honda, but even moreso on Volkswagen. The G20 is more reliable, better looking, and more of a value than a Jetta... if you can say that about 4-banger wannabe luxosedans. For the money, I'd rather have a Celica or Integra type coupe and save the $2000 or so.

Financial considerations aside (actually the G20 has lower insurance than a 2-door Celica or Integra, I believe), the G20 is a very nice car. One of the most well-built cars on the market, looks good, performs decently (maybe it's really a disguised Honda... http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif ).

Before my '88 Sentra blew a tire causing me to lose control and crash it, it had nearly 200,000 miles on it! It rarely needed repairs and never anything major (ie new transmission) I think the most major problem was a radiator flush, and that was because the thermostat (or a similar gasket) was fused to it and we spent a few hours ripping it to pieces and cutting what remained free. It squeaked, rattled, made wierd radio noises, but it was "old faithful" (actaully, it was Fred). I loved the thing! Of course, a friend of mine got his 1984 Honda up to 300,000 miles, but I would have made it if it weren't for the damn Kirkland tires! lol.

i love mine. 26000 miles in 2 years and not a squeak or peep aside from a very subtle rattle coming from the factory amp in the trunk (i WILL fix that this spring). a great car, IMO!
