This was my first car out of college. I bought used with 30K miles and 11 years later now have 194K. Why am I writing a review now? Because I've finally started to look for another car and as I've been reading over reviews on Edmunds - am amazed at the problems reported on the new vehicles out there (Acura TL, Infiniti G35/I35, and New Maximas).
To continue from above. What is amazing when I compare this vehicle with the new ones' is that I'm averaging 25mpg (in the city!), while the new ones seem to struggle to break 20. What is going on?
These are the problems I've had. Replaced clutch twice, replaced water pump, three windows no longer work, replaced power steering pump. All this work has been between 3 and 4K, but I'm not disappointed. What matters is the reliability. This car has NEVER left me anywhere and continues to move!!!
