Nice cinematography in this one, it deserves to be seen on a big Screen.

Would a road trip to meet your legal counsel (with a stop off at the dunes "just pause the video and look at his gps" ) count as a deductible business expense?

First day in two months the high has been below 55 and first day in almost 3 its snowed.  Hopefully this bad luck isn't a sign of how things will go with the new toy i just took delivery of.. 

Moved too far from downtown to not have a car, and I narrowed the list down to a Subaru or a Subaru, after realizing an AWD Wagon was what I needed. The BMW that was perfect was just too much of a ris

I was pretty happy with it but it's a whole new world with the new wheels and suspension. This last run was almost 4 seconds faster than my first two and I nailed and dragged a bunch of cones on run 3 (I got lost)

Test and tune on Saturday on the exact same course on a cooler day and I shaved 4 second off my time with some suspension, tire pressure and driving adjustment before the heavens opened for 4 hours and it generally turned to shit. Should be a fun year, maybe I can win the class championship.

Cheers for shears.

Candidly, it's a shitbox that only exists to be an option in the market for buyers that can't afford anything better. If the budget can possibly stretch to a used Hyundai Accent, Honda Fit or Mazda 3, she'll probably be both safer and happier down the road.

What is it about that car she is drawn to?  Aversion to those bourgeois automatic windows and FM radios of the elitist middle class?

Anyone know anything about the Nissan Versa? My daughter is looking at a used one...

They're fucking ubiquitous -- like Jesus*, they're everywhere...and that's all I know about them.

Mazda3 owner, here.  I still love mine.

Lollers at "...get the ugly out of their systems in a single shot..."  So true.

That's "people named Jesus in a hispanic community", not "the son of god".  Yes, I am both racist and anti-superstitious.

The versa is probably a perfectly reasonable car if all you need is something to get around in a city, and don't want people breaking into it to steal stuff, or key it, or whatnot.  These days, even a really shitty car is better than ok cars were 20 years ago.

I say, if it's safe and reliable, cut your loses.

Gals her age can make some crazy car decisions based on everything but the car itself.

I've had a few GF's who had insanely bad cars that they just loved. 

 

Chris, congrats!

Looks like you have some talent there.

Getting a super cheap rental car for 3 days costs less than taxi or Uber rides between the airport and my parents' house, so I have driven a lot of the worst cars on the road lately. I would definitely consider the Nissan to be not the worst I have driven. Would not be my first choice if I were buying something, but it's fine.

Also - I kind of like the cube. I wouldn't own one, but I appreciate the Nissan has a history of making cars that don't look like every other car on the road. I saw one of these driving around Montreal a few years ago.
