I've done 70k miles in this car in
under 2 years and I must say it's been
very reliable, no problems other than
wear and tear stuff (beakes, etc).
However, I've noticed the engine has
gotten a little noisier in the past
few months, only to be told by nissan
that it's normal for a car with this
mileage. Surely a car isn't over the
hill at 75k!!
Also, the handling has always been a
little clumsy. I find the throttle
unsresponsive and use the brakes a lot.
Drove a rental Max SE (2002?) this
week - thru the mountains of Oregon -
and it was a joy to drive. Perhaps
they worked out the bugs on my model...
Comfort, reliability, power
Poor handling, engine noise - worried
