Could be an exceptional car but doesn't quite get there
All shocks/struts needed to be replaced
One of the catalytic converters went bad, over $700 just for the part
Tie rod ends replaced twice
Radiator contracted a hole in the top of it so it had to be replaced
Headlights fog up, however I believe there is a recall on them
Water pump replaced
Fairly nice looking car and runs smooth when all of the issues are fixed. At freeway speeds, you can feel the car kick in more power when turn of the OD mode. Steering is pretty good and the brakes work very well (trust me on this).
One thing that hampers the car is the turning radius. If you don't like having to do 3-point turns a lot, then this vehicle may not be for you.
Also, repair parts and service for this vehicle are not for the faint of heart. Nissan charges waaaayyy too much for parts. You are better off ordering parts online from an auto parts warehouse or even an online auction site.
Oh yeah, the dealer recommends 91 octane. At today's prices, that ain't gonna happen at every fill up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
