Nice review.

I figured that the V6 would be a half-second slower than the Altima SE, but would handle better.

I can't wait until they do a comparison test ;)

Nice review. Are they overexaggering how hard the ride is? Granted, sporty is sporty, but they didn't seem overly pleased. Perhaps they are just Accord / Camry caliber.

The 6 is stiff. Perhaps a bit stiffer than many people want of a family mobile (anyway, WAY softer than the -99 626 I just got rid of...).

To me this is not a problem, in fact it is something I would expect of a sporty car. Don't worry - you can drive your family in it without them experience it as a rough ride!:D

As far as I'm concerned, I absolutely LOVED the feel of the suspension. To me it's a good compromise of sportiness and comfort.

Those old fuddy duddies at C&D always have to complain about something.

I'm glad we finally got some acceleration number for the V6, if they say the car does a 0-60 in 6.8, then street starts should be about 7.3 seconds, not bad. Sounds like a great platform for tuning, I hope someone gets a cold air intake out for the car soon. You can tell C&D was expecting a toyota like family sedan, the whole article while positive seemed like the were confused about what car the were driving....given the price, its great you can have a car that is 95%+ the ride of BMW without the price.

Never mind. You're not expected to browse every single thread before you post. Found anything interesting? Post it! If we've seen it before, we can live with that! :)
