Why you'll never buy a Nissan? Is it that they are cheap made, unsafe, or just ugly?

Opinions needed,

I drive a '93 red nissan pickup... i like it, very few problems with it. the most expensive repair i ever had to do was get a new clutch, which wasnt as bad as i expected... other than that, just a few minor electrical problems is all i've ever had.

and about being ugly, well, i think its pretty sharp, i do take very good care of it tho..

Nissans are one of the best cars out there. I've had my Nissan Pathfinder 1987 with 200, 986 miles on it. Nothing major has ever gone wrong with it. the paint job looks completely new, and it's the original paint job.

hooray for nissans!

One of my friends drives an Infinity SUV (QX4 or something), which is the Pathfinder's cousin (Nissan owns Infinity) and I didn't like the feel of it. It felt kinda cheap and stuff.

PS
I would buy a Nissan, but if I am buying a car, I wouldn't buy a Nissan, why waste money on a Japanese car? For the money, I would buy a Volkswagen or any other Euro-port.

I think that the Nissan Maxima is a nice car plus Nissian makes Infinity cars and the Q45 is one of my favorites!

I happen to like the Nissan brand. My family had a 93 Quest minivan which we had no problems with but got rit of it a year ago. My dad has a 93' Altima which is great and in a few months it'll be mine. I like the car and for a first car, its a nice piece of equipment.

I own a 93 Nissan pickup 4x4. Best truck in the world.
I am part Japanese, so I am partial to Japanese cars.
I love the Maxima. Its so easy to mod, with plenty of power under the hood.
The Nissan Skyline is one of the baddest cars ever made in my opinion.

It's such a shame that Nissan (together with most other manufacturers) has fallen prey to the recent fad in N. America, withdrawing their hottest sports cars and replacing them with over-weight, style-less, boring, prone-to-flipover lumps of bricks (a.k.a. SUV's). While their passenger cars are still fine, they've lost that "zesty" feel, and are increasing bland and mainstream. (yawn.........)

Send in the Skyline GTR!! That ought to wake people up!

I think that Nissans are sensible, well-built cars. There is nothing wrong with them, and since we are living in a world economy, you sound stupid when you say "I won't support the Jap economy" most vehicles these days are built with parts that come from all over the world, and are assembled all over the world. I will always remember the guy driving a Dogde Spirit that had a bumper sticker that says, "BUY AMERICAN!" Sorry dude, the V6 engine in that car came from Mitsubishi of Japan, and it was assembled in Toluca, Mexico. The only thing american about that car is the name. So, shame on those that would not buy a japanese car based on nationality reasons.

As for me, I would not buy a nissan because they are sesible, bland automobiles. Who wants a bland Altima, when they can drive a sporty Dodge stratus with a V6. The maxima has completely failed at any attempts to be sporty, even though it comes with a screamer of a V6 engine. Too bad the stylists at Chrysler can't get a hold of that platform, because they would do it right! Look at the 300M! The Sentra is also a bland econobox. It needs some personality, like the Civic. I am not saying all the right parts aren't there, the Sentra has a great engine with nice interior--nissan just needs to endow it with some personality!

Then new pathfinder with the 240 hp V6 is a step in the right direction, and kudos to nissan on the Xterra. It is just what Gen Xers want, a little pazzaz, decent power, and good looks. There new truck styling is quite interesting, and I am starting to get used to it. You have to be a little daring with styling, without hanging out with the Pontiac stylists! That damn Azteck is the worst thing to come out of detriot since the El Camino!   Anyway, I have rambled enough. Any Comments?

Of course their assembled outside of the US because of labor cheapness. I see jap cars like this, first of all small, second of all ugly, third of all not that powerfull, third of all their not great for a family. If a company that is based in the US example GM assembles its cars outside the US but it still gets the profits the bigger the profits the bigger the taxes they have to pay and advertising boosting the economy. All of these companies that do buisness outside the US still bring the assets into the country paying the taxes and for advertising.

Actually, LOT, the american corporations are only taxed on their profits here in the USA, which is just a drop in the bucket for our tax revenue. As you probably know, the overwhelming majority of US tax revenue does not come from corporations, but from individual income taxes. And don't forget the mighty tarrif that the US imposes on Japanese imports, which increases our tax revenue. You need to take a college macro economics course, and you'll understand that "cheap imports" help the overall standard of living in the united states. (we can buy more goods and services per dollar than before the "cheap imports") And don't forget that the labor in japan as of late is actually more expensive than here in the US. It has more to do with manufacturing efficiency in japan that causes the low prices of japanese vehicles rather than "cheap labor" and if you've priced japanese cars lately, they are not that cheap. (high import costs) They are quite expensive, and why do people buy them? Percieved quality. I won't say they are of higher quality, that is another debate in itself, but people percieve them to be of higher quality, and perceptions are what sell cars to americans, not necessarily the truth.

Many families drive Japanese cars, including the one I am in. The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are two of America's best selling cars(I believe they are both in the top three).
We have no problems with our Accord. It has been reliable for 7 years and more than 100,000 miles. We have always bought Honda.

FORD HAS ABSOLUTELY NO STAKE IN HONDA!!!!!!!!!
God, just thinking about such a possibility made me have a heart attack! Honda is independent, and proud of it! All we need is Ford or General Motors buying the great company and chugging out Honda Explorers and Honda Tauruses! Eeech!

You're probably thinking of Mazda. . .

And also, I think Renault owns closer to 20% of Nissan, though it is still the majority shareholder.
