Have driven the car for 2 months, nearly 1500 miles. You get a lot of value for your money. Gas mileage has been 31-32 mpg for mostly non-highway commute, very respectable. The car's got enough pep and great brakes with the ABS option. The interior exceeds expectations. It does have some quirks - gets a little loose at highway speeds (probably could improve with better tires), the rear suspension is soft (go slow over speed bumps) and oddities like no temp gauge (instead goofy LEDs) and the glove box light only comes on with the exterior lights. Not the sportiest car but for the price it has exceeded my expectations. If it yields long term reliability then Nissan's got a winner here.
The suede-like cloth seats and brushed aluminum touchpoints give the interior a high-end feel. Trunk is roomy. The power package is great, a must have.
Add a temp gauge please, tighten the suspension, improve the interior lighting on the base model, a separately locked trunk w/valet key would be nice, and why not a full alarm system since it's already got a panic alarm. Oh and why not some performance tires too, but keep the price the same :)
