I'd give up my Intrepid for a nice Jetta Wagon TDI!! Then I would have a manual and great milage.

One of the Passat TDI's went 1400 Miles on a tank of fuel (24.5 gals)

Welcome to Nissan. You are going to love that VQ engine. Did you get a good deal? With the new 2004's out now they are "giving away" the 2003's around here.

Giving away?????? I hardly call a $35000 Maxima a give away. God, the Trep is a LOT less $ and a LOT less on insurance.

Yes I got a pretty sweet deal on it. I looked at the 2004 also and I think its ugly. The Maxima is fast as all hell and a much nicer ride then I expected. I love it! Although Im not sure how much my insurance went up. I didnt figure that it was going to be much worse than the Intrepid. Il let you know when I find out. :mg:

Nope I got the Automatic, but I almost opted for the 6 speed there was no price difference. So I figure if Im gonna pay 30 G's for a car it might as well shift for me.

I don't see why the insurance would be any different at all... in fact I would be willing to bet new Intrepid vs new Maxima that the premiums would be exactly the same.

But the 6spd stick is a lot faster... didn't you care about that?

Go test drive an automatic it is plenty fast. I thought my Intrepid had alot of sack, The Max would smoke the Trep. :bigsmile:

Anyone who thinks Intrepids have a lot of "sack" hasn't driven a car that really has a lot of sack. I got blown away by a Maxima one day and it was as if I was a standing still... a rocket against a barge.
