While I agree with your sentiment in this instance, this is EXACTLY the mindset that nearly destroyed Ford and GM in the mid-90s.
Nissan, though, needs to understand the difference between competing with yourself and buildling a diverse product lineup under distinct brands. I promise if you check the dictionary, "Diverse" is not defined as "as many droopy crossovers as you can imagine."
Also, Nissan needs to stow the hypocrisy before talking about lost sales. Ten years ago it was "Nissan and Infiniti must be separate things. We can't allow RWD Nissans because that's too close to Infiniti. We have to kill off the I
because it's not a real Infiniti." Now it's "Pathfinder with a CVT?!?!? Slap a Mt. Fuji on that beastie and call it a JX! MORE SALES FOR EVERYONE!!!" Modern Nissan is like a blue hair in a Century: I don't give a damn WHICH lane you want to drive in, but please PICK ONE AND STAY THERE so everyone else can move on.
