V6 '06 6spd

After testing a few cars in its class I decided to buy this one due to the price and general feel of the car. It doesn't have as many of the frills as others (Maxima, TL, even '07 Camry SE) and doesn't have as much HP and torque, but was a nice ride. There's enough power and the style is conservative but sleek. Probably the only gripe I have is that the clutch is a little funny. I thought it was just my lack of skills with a stick but after letting a few of my buddies drive it and after driving a few other cars, I realized that it's the car's problem. I read a few forums and other people stated the same problem. 1st and 2nd gear is a bit picky about the way you shift and release the clutch.
Smooth gear box (Although it is a bit long between gears. That is also a contributing factor to the shifting difficulties. A short shifter should help.) "Instant Fuel" meter on screen. Nice Navi system. Voice activated features, tons of commands and is pretty accurate
Clutch could be easier to drive. It's a bit long and soft, making it hard to tell where the catch point is. HIDs would be nice or at least auto on headlights. Memory seats. MP3 playback please!Power seats for the passenger. If you call a stereo package "premium" it should include a sub
