We shopped around at several dealers.
We found the best price at the
larger "city" dealer. The car runs
very well and is just the right size
for commuting to work in all seasons.
The L upgrade offers some nice extras
such as moonroof and cd/tape/stereo
radio. Our dealer lowered the MSR by
$2,500 and provided a fair value for
our 1995 Nissan Altima trade-in.
The only problem we had was that the
radio was defective. The dealer
replaced it the next day
The moon roof adds a lot. The AWD is
great for the New England weather.
The gas mileage is good for a small
Some small improvements could be to
add power seats and more of the larger
SUV extras (compass, standard keyless
entry. Currently an upgrade option
that is hard to find.)
