This car is exactly what I was looking for -- great mileage, exceptional styling, sporty/fun to drive, reliable, excellent value.
Mileage is fantastic -- seems to be about 40mpg based on early experience (with careful driving habits). Car is comfortable and looks really sporty, yet tasteful. Lots of fun to drive -- great cornering and acceleration -- feels very connected to the road.
Received ~$7,500 in dealer incentives plus the $2,350 tax credit, so price before taxes was about $20K with the convenience package. Really a tremendous value.
Bought this at the end of 2010 in order to take advantage of the federal tax write off as well as the Nissan incentives.
Financially, it was a great deal as we achieved a savings of $10k.
Plus, I love these cars.
The last time I bought a brand new car was my 1992 Nissan Altima which was incredibly reliable and fun to drive.
I have driven numerous other cars since then, but getting this one was like getting "back in the saddle" so to speak.
Love my car!
