Test drove a 2009 Nissan Maxima SV w/ Cold package and Technology package today... Amazing. CVT performs very well. The interior is well put together. The materials are definitely Infiniti hand-me-downs. The new Maxima is also much more attractive in person.

It has a lot of character, features, and style for the price. The one I drove was around $36k. The one I'd purchase would be $38.5k.

Let's see how the Invicta stands up in pricing, performance, style, and features. Jeff knows that's what I'm holding out to determine.

I don't see why they just don't put the Titan out of its misery. 1200 sales a month is hardly enough to justify its existence...that's Mark LT territory, and that truck is dead.

well if that was a 'domestic brand' everyone would be calling for them to shut down the brand and fold the company.

all of nissan's frame trucks are WAY down. so much its scary.

i'd rather see the titan sell than the tundra. the suzuki titan, equator, what is it? a rebadge whatever it is.

Agreed. I've not driven either but sat in both. The Titan is a much nicer truck than the "all new" tundra. Not that I'd buy either, I'll take a GMT-900 but had I only the choice of the two, it'd be the Nissan.

True that...

But we all know asian imports DON'T COUNT in the great quest to destroy history/equity, because they have none.

Well, the Altima is their mainstream family sedan...the '09 Maxima is supposed to be back to their '4 Door Sports Car' image...so the price is in line with the Acura TL...

The NG Titan for '10 is supposed to a badge-engineered Dodge Ram...

Correct.

I compared both an Altima and a new Maxima side-by-side the other day, and while the 7G Maxima shrunk, it still beats the Altima in every way. Luxury and power especially... plus it looks better (IMO). We'll call it the grown-up Nissan.

I do think they should shrink the Altima for the next generation though... get some more differentiation in there.

Fine with me; might as well flush the Xterra (1,206), Pathfinder (1,436) and Armada (866 !!) while they're at it.

Nissan will pull the plug on most/all of its consumer large truck offerings when the light commercial vehicles are ready to be produced in Canton. I don't know if that includes the Xterrra or Pathfinder--both of which are more 'international' in size.

a guy i work with just bought a pathfinder. yuck. a relative has one too. jesuus, the grand cherokee is a much nicer ride than that crap pathfinder.

yet, its imported so people line up.

the xterra at least has no luxury pretensions and is a great off roady concept.

the pathfinder is garbage. IMO.
