I've had this car for approx. two years and I haven't seen one problem with it. I even got in an accident where someone rear-ended me at about 40 MPH. I noticed that the damage was fairly minimal. The acceleration is pretty good except I don't like how the car is approx. 300 pounds heavier than the Maxima. I also don't like how there is no available manual trans. with this car like the Maxima. Overall I giv this car a good rating.
