Who the hell keeps buying Sentras?!  :banghead:

Well, you got to admit it's impressive how strong their sales are with all of the fresh, new competition out. They must be doing something right.

Good to see the M still going strong (and still beating the GS ^_^ ) but the new G35 needs to get here pretty soon.

It is impressive that the current Sentra is selling that well despite its age and new competition, you have to admit that much.

Looks like Infiniti needs to get cracking....their sales are pretty off. I think the Quest will pick up sales once the refesh comes out, Pathfinder seems to be doing well...the Amrada isn't though

I'm not as impressed as I am simply mystified. It wasn't a very good car when it bowed and its near bottom-of-the-barrel now. The interior was so very bad and Nissan didn't do crap to improve it over the years. I wonder what the fleet rate is on it...could explain things.

Part of it but...I don't see it accounting for the entire 20 some-odd percent sales increase over last year.

not even fleets will buy that thing until at least the refresh is on sale

You kidding me? Fleets don't care. Why do you think you see the lots full of Stratuses and old Optimas?
