    For about the same money, I'd rather have a better-looking, more refined and powerful Infiniti G37.

    I was shocked when I saw one for the first time. They look really nice in person...

    Not my cup of tea, but I think they are much improved over previous models.

    If I'm buying imported it is going to be European.

    I like 'em cause I work for Nissan! I get a discount on parts, discount on the car itself and we also get free lifetime oil changes! :supergrin:

    Yup. That's the nice thing about Nissan... big engines in their cars.

    I really like them, but they are way overpriced. For the same price you can have an AWD Acura TL type S.

    They look nice but for the money you could buy a real car with RWD.

    We have an '06 Altima SE with the 3.5L V-6.

    While it's de-tuned a bit from the Maxima's HP numbers, the money saved on the Altima (plus more interior room) is a bonus.

    I think C&D didn't rate it very well in one of the comparo tests. Something about falling short of the "4-door sports car" that it's marketed as.

    But I DO like the looks...

    But then you'd have to look at it everyday

    I rode in a 05 or 06?? Murano this weekend. Leather, Bose sound system...NOT impressed AT ALL!! I don't know what they cost but I don't think I would have one. IMO.

    I put my 07F150 up against it on ride quality and sound system. All kidding aside.

    There is no Maxima coupe. There's an Altima coupe, and they are good looking. Nissan interiors have been a let down for the last several years though, I think.

    You are correct. That is a very nice machine.
    I had to take wife's Infiniti I 30 to dealer to have computer board replaced. They loaned me a G-37. Wow, that was sweet! It had 320 HP with 7 speed auto tranny.
    It cornered really well and with AWD it was surprisingly quick.
