So we did TRADE the MO

Guys thanks for all the help!

We are moving to a more NON-complicated vehicle (FWD, family sedan, but still V6).. We took delivery 3 days ago

Hope I can still drop by to say hi..

Okay... don't keep us in suspense. What NON-complicated, front-wheel-drive, V6-powered, family sedan did you trade the MO for?

I suspected that Mr. BANSwee was not pleased with his MO from the get-go. When you feel like that about a vehicle, it seems like everything is wrong with it. I had a similar experience with a 1983 Cutlass. I just hated that car and got rid of it in less than a year. Only time I have ever done that with a car.

Good luck with the new one, and I certainly hope it suits your needs better. I think you gave up a very good car, but of course there will be no way to convince you of that!

Certainly a solid vehicle, just lacking the personality of the Murano. Everyone has to drive the car they want.

And as I've said before, we all drive the cars we want - not the car we need. If we all drove what we need, most of us would be driving Checkers.

I almost bought a 2013 Honda Accord V6 Touring but opt for the MO for the ride height, style and AWD. Tired of driving sedans and sport hatches.

Good Luck with the Accord. Tell us how you like the Blind-spot monitor and the touch interface.

why? getting tired with the MO?

the accords back seat is much roomier. All I can say is test drive it-- it really is entry level luxury for the price of a HONDA.

We were also looking for the TL but my wife that time really wanted a higher ride, so we end up buying the MO. fast forward, there are 'characteristics' of the MO that we don't like. But I guess that's history..

Good luck and Im sure you'll have fun when you go for a test drive!

Tired of paying for premium fuel. She wants better gas mileage and Nissan still can't find the problem with coolant loss.

Actually "can't find" or won't own up to the fact the head gaskets are leaking? This should have been a recall back in 2009....
