I wanted a sport-luxury combo in the
$30-35k range. I live in the snow belt
so I also wanted fwd or awd. Drove
Audi A4, Volvo S60, Maxima, Infiniti
G35 (rear wheel drive but had to check
it out). All very fine cars, but the
CL just suited me best. I'm 6'3", and
headroom is barely enough but
comfortable. Leg room in the front is
great. 6 speed manual tranny rocks.
Comfy, firm headrests to prevent
WHIPLASH when going from 3000 to 6900
RPM in second, third, fourth...
Bose audio system is not good-- it
would benefit greatly from a subwoofer
arrangement like the TL and Maxima have.
