No Major repairs required by and large.

Control arms needed to be replaced.

General Comments:

I have had previous experience with Nissan's over the years, and I when I was in the market for a sedan, I thought about mid-size four door cars with at least v6 power levels. I bought this as a used car, for the same price range I would have paid for a lesser car.

The car is a very heavy sedan, but has surprisingly good acceleration. It is not a nimble, toss-able car, but rather, it is a luxurious, long distance comfortable cruiser. Poor resale value compared to Lexus, but much better accelaration, handling and feature content. If you're buying a used car to impress yourself, not others, nothing beats this full size sedan.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
