Surprised that Nissan sold 123K plus auto's. I just do not get the vibe that they sell much or guess not that much in my area as I rarely seem them like VW. Both are not popular here, in fact more Mazda and Subarus than them.

Do you drive through the ghetto or trailer parks? Or rental lots. Half of those are rentals and the other half are cheapo pieces of sh!t sold for nothing so they go to the "less fortunate".

I would have to drive a couple hours south to the military base to find the lower income areas, so yea, based on what you say that could explain not seeing as much as other places.

I mean I was being a huge smartass but they do seem to have killer deals all the time, probably because they need to to sell them.

Sorry but picking up sarcasm was never a strength of mine. But Washington state has a highly educated labor force and as such, low income areas are south of Tacoma below the military base, While you do see the occasional Nissan SUV / pickup or Infinity, they do not have much of a presence in this state for some reason.

Hahaha, it's okay. It's difficult to read sarcasm through words without tone. 

I don't notice brand new stuff too often but I do see plenty of older Altimas. They seem like a dime a dozen. 

A buddy of mine recently bought a Rogue... I tried to convince him to get ANY other CUV in that class but they got him by selling it for dirt cheap. Ohhh well..

      Infiniti announced today that they will exit the Western European market to concentrate on their growth areas in North America and China.  The company stated that regulatory challenges and competition from other premium priced cars were the main factors in its decision. There are 55 Infiniti dealerships in Western Europe.
      As part of the move, Infiniti is canceling the Q30 sedan and QX30 crossover which is sold in the US.  Both vehicles are built in the UK at Nissan's Sunderland plant. Nissan recently announced they will not be building their X-Trail SUV in the UK. Nissan is also rumored to be cutting Leaf and Qashqai production at the Sunderland plant. This follows recent moves by Honda and potentially BMW to end automobile production in the UK in fear of a no-deal Brexit. 
      In January, Infiniti's President Christian Meunier admitted the QX30 was a flop, but said that the model would continue on an all-Infiniti platform.  The exit from Europe now puts those plans into question. 
      Infiniti will remain in Eastern Europe, North America, and China and will electrify most of its products by 2021.

      Japanese journalists await Carlos Ghosn who was expected to be released from Jail on bail after the Tokyo court granted the bail request. Ghosn lawyer's office said it would be near impossible for him to be released the same day due to an appeal by the prosecutor's office.
      Ghosn was granted bail set at $1 billion yen or equal to $9 million US at today's exchange rate. Ghosn is 64 and head of the auto alliance of Nissan Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, and Renault. He was arrested in 2018 on suspicion of underreporting his income by more than $80 million US dollars and saddling Nissan with his personal investment losses, allegations he denies.
      Ghosn new legal team was able to get bail granted on the conditions he will be kept under guard locally with limited to no outside information. Ghosn has claimed that the executives of Nissan are responsible for his arrest as they plotted and committed treason to prevent him from bringing Nissan further under Renault's control.
      While Carlos Ghosn has resigned from the CEO position on all three companies, he remains on the boards of all three companies.
      Yet now that he is out on bail he seems to be insulting the average workers of Japan and according to various stories, his new legal team has apologized for advising the former CEO to leave jail in a disguise being taken away in a work van with ladders attached to the roof.
      Local news outlets have mocked the costume drama bringing more attention than if he had just left on his own in normal business attire and in a business auto. Ghosn is one of the highest-profile detainees which also has made him one of the most famous now.
      Ghosn was seen later in the day walking with two women, one believed to be his wife and the other his daughter in a Tokyo park by where he will be living surrounded by press and still wearing the blue baseball cap and sunglasses.

      A few weeks after Honda announced the closure of its manufacturing plant in Swindon, Sky News is reporting that BMW and Nissan are both looking at moving operations out of the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
      BMW currently produces the Mini-Cooper in Oxford.  BMW's Peter Schwarzenbauer has said that the company would "need to consider" moving production out of the UK. In addition to Mini production, some engine production would move to Austria from Birmingham.
      Likewise Nissan, which produces the Qashqai and Leaf in Sunderland would cut back production and potential plant reductions of about 400 jobs.  Nissan has already announced that due to Brexit uncertainty, the manufacturer would not be producing the Nissan X-Trail in Sunderland. Sunderland is the largest automotive manufacturing plant in the UK.
