I thought Nissan was the better deal compared to a comparable Accord. Boy was I wrong. In the past year I've had to replace the rear calipers and the check engine light comes on randomly. At the time it first came on, the car was covered under the factory warranty. The Nissan dealer replaced what they said was a faulty oxygen sensor. The check engine light came on about 3 months later. By that time the warranty had expired. I had another shop determine it was a catalytic convertor. For now I'll just live with it.
Decent power for a mid-size car. Respectable non-Bose stereo. As a winter car, not having to drive it in the spring & summer. My '84 911's proven to be more reliable and it's a 23 year old German car!
