I bought this car right after it was released. I bought it because of its design. Exterior and interior designs, I love them. But I should have listen to people around me. No one recommended Nissan cars cus they break easily. After little over a month I bought this car, the break started squeaking, and over the time it got worst. I called the dealer and all they said was there is nothing they can do and it doesn't have any problems. Also, my side drawer or whatever its called, doesnt even open right. I have to hit it for it to open. I down paid too much, so trade in is kind of waste of money for me. It's drive-able so I still have this car, but I would never buy Nissan anymore. I can't wait to buy different car.
The car has a luxury feel but at the same time it is sporty. It has a sunroof, navigation system and satellite radio. I especially love the Bluetooth phone features and the fact that I can play my music right from my iPhone. The car is easy to drive though not a v6 which I prefer but it has enough power for a sedan. The list goes on as far as great features: remote start for cold days, keyless entry, automatic driver and passenger windows,locking feature on glove box which locks trunk too. I don't particularly like the fact that you can't adjust passenger seat same as driver seat. There are no power controls for it.
The car looks nice, but it's overpriced for the problems it has. I just hit 40,000 miles and started having issues with the tranny. The car jerks repeatedly in stop and go traffic. Small backseat compared to competition. Cvt is definitely an acquired taste.
