2010 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Really like this car, having looked at Honda, Subaru, Volvo, and others. In the end the finalists were the Altima and the Infiniti G37x (really). I actually like to exterior of the Altima better, with the interior nod to the G37. The Altima gives me fold- down rear seats, better fuel economy and oh, by the way was over $10k less. I may miss the AWD on a few days here in CO, but my snow tires will help. I was very surprised at how unwilling the Infiniti dealers were to discount the 2010's even with their lots full and the 2011's arriving in Sept. Oh well, good for us, and I'll pocket the $10k, thank you very much!
no-brainer iPod integration, back up camera w/o having to buy Nav, exterior styling, fold-down seats, interior control layout/function, rims, roominess, Xenon lights
Seats could be a little more comfortable, maintenance minder, AWD option
