    Thanks for the review! It's nice to read rental impressions, especially of a version that isn't even sold in the states.

    This doesn't need a VQ. It needs an M256, that sweet-as-heck new inline-6...

    The Q60 is nice but as long as its steering is so bad and there are functioning G37s on the market that are essentially the same car with better steering and handling, I doubt I'll bother. Yes, the...

    This Detroit show is a disaster. Nissan's got nothing.

    Toyota's big-ticket item, the Supra, is a nothingburger. Just get a BMW Z4 and you have the same car with much better-looking sheet metal...

    What have they done that's worthwhile recently? Front wheel drive SUVs and parts-bin CVTs from Nissans?

    That's right, I 100% agree with your sentiment. If we had a rep system I'd try to give you 1000 points.

    Infiniti is definitely trying to eye easy money and grab cash with EVs. Not interesting,...

    As it stands the Q70 is the final Infiniti standing from the sporty, BMW-chasing era.

    Last one with a naturally-aspirated V6. (also last with a V8 that isn't the QX80)

    Last one with great...

    It's hard to take their concepts seriously anymore when everything is an "Inspiration" that never makes it to production.

    As for a "Sporty" QX50, either lose the CVT or go home with the sporty...

    Idk maybe I was expecting the new model to leap out of the gate and at least:

    LOL!

    It's true in recent times. The Sentra has become a disproportionate box or blob.

    Back in the 90s, when everything was better, it looked like a car. In fact, it looked like an E30 BMW,...

    They aren't making anything of the sort.

    They have some nice front wheel drive SUVs with Nissan Altima powertrains to sell you for a 30% price premium though! :thumbsup:

    Those higher Japanese luxury sedans don't sell because the manufacturers are too lazy and cheap to make them competitive. The only one that sells decently, particularly when its high-ish price is...

    The new Altima looks like a sales flop. Sad, but predictable. In November it was (rounding) 1. Camry 24k, 2. Accord 23k, 3. Altima 12k. Sales are down 37% over the OUTGOING model!

    And Nissan sales...

    Good riddance. He "saved" the company by taking appropriate evasive action (and injecting cash from Renault) in a time of financial crisis. But as NissLover said, it's become increasingly apparent...

    New 2019+ Lexus ES

    So this car looks brilliant, as were its latest-gen Camry and Avalon platform mates. Unlike those two, this has not a single awkward angle or detail. It looks even better than the LS and has learned...

    For what it's worth, one of the long-time posters on a famous Lexus forum said his friend just got the new Altima, and that the doors felt "like a tank" to him. He had generally positive impressions...

    No, you're sugar coating. The market in general has shifted to CUVs but a great many sedan model lines do exceedingly well. The focus on CUVs has done a couple things... it has forced a lot of weaker...

    Consumer Reports kind of panned the new Altima in a first-drive review. They said that it was improved, but not enough to stand out. Their text claimed that it drove essentially the same as the last...
