Over 5 years, it will cost $5,750 extra in gasoline cost to drive the Maxima vs. the CR-Z according to Fuel Economy.gov. Also, a 2009 Maxima vs a 2011 CR-Z is about 3k more in initial costs, so now we're at $8,750 additional over a 5 year ownership. I'll happily take a CR-Z :)Report it
IIHS gives good rate on CRZ front and side crash tests, which should be good enough. As for the new gov 5 star crash rating, even many SUVs earn only 4 or 3 stars. Do we really need to drive tanks to be safe on road?Report it
No offense, but its hard to rely on a review on this type of product when you dont actually own it. Its like when apple haters were trashing the iPad on Amazon before it was even offered for sale, and they were basing their reviews on what they read from other articles that it was expensive and just a "big iphone". But if you look at the iPad reviews now you see more satisfied customers and useful critizism about weak wifi and other comments that actually help prospective customers make a better decision.Report it
