My local Nissan dealership(Jeff Wyler Nissan) had been asking me to come down and check out their lot and honestly, I told them I wasn’t interested in anything but AWD and RWD sedans(coming from my G35x). I figured I may find something in their used vehicles but there wasn’t anything really interesting. I noticed a Nissan Altima SR and realized there was a turbocharged version(I guess I just hadn’t been paying much attention to newer cars that I thought were outside what I was looking for).
I asked them to test drive it and really enjoyed it. A long of cool features and a fun drive. I left because I had I had to be somewhere but texted them to say I was interested in what it would take to get into one. I didn’t think I would actually be buying one but it left an impression on me. They contacted me back later saying they could make it work. I told them I don’t have the down payment yet but they told me to just come in and they would work it out.
I’m loving it so far. I’ve had it a little over a week. I’ve been mostly babying it during the break-in period that no one really ever does but it helps me feel better about reliability. I also purchased the extended warranty but we’ll see how that goes. Some dealers try to cancel warranties for the smallest things.
