    So Carlos Ghosn was on probation awaiting trial later this year, until he ESCAPED TOKYO BY BULLET TRAIN AND FLEW TO LEBANON. He’ll be holding a press conference on Wednesday to “explain his side of the story.”

      @AngelAuto Motive seriously Toyota is terrible right now I mean "HEY GUYS WANT A POWERFUL CAMRY? MEET THE TRD CAMRY ITS THE XSE BUT WITH DIFFERENT BADGING! WOAW" oh wow so cool amazing now fuck off and make a good new car Toyota rather than just slapping trd on everything and calling it "sporty"

      I mean none of the tacomas even have 300 HORSE POWERS! and then they slap on a trd badge. AND WHAT I HATE MORE ON THE TACOMAS depending on which trd trim you get (which is bs why are there MULTIPLE trd trims? it should be TRD THE ONE AND ONLY not trd and then there is a different one that's the same but different... but still the same) is the fucking SNORKEL!

      I hate it because its an air intake



      and I aint even going to talk about the new supra.
      sure its got looks but I mean... its not a supra. ITS A COOL SPORTS CAR! but not a supra.

      Toyota 86/brz/frs now this car imo is fine its getting a model update so cool I guess... main issue is still the whole trd thing, you aint losing anything if you get a base version or a trd one. its the same car same hrspowa just slighting different brakes but in all honesty you get the 86 to modify it not keep it stock imo.

      now the fucking TUNDRA!!!

      ram 1500 gets up to 20 city 25 highway not bad for that size of truck
      ford f150 gets up to 22 city 30 highway now that's actually pretty good for a big truck

      also last bad thing about Toyota and this only applies to the trucks. the transmission fucking sucks ass that is all.

    Nissan needs to:
    1- Stop equip the Altima, Maxima, and Rogue with CVTs and replace them with 8-speed direct shift automatic transmission with torque converter.
    2- Redesign the Pathfinder and use an RWD platform and use the new Nissan/Mercedes-Benz RWD 9-speed automatic transmission.

        The only thing I like about my nissan Altima is the engine, it holds up like a champ. But literally everything else pisses me off, and I so desperately want another car

                Maybe its the fight between nissan and renault, why not making a new version of the brilliant datsun laurel, l had one with the 2,8 liter diesel and 100 hrspwr, not the fastest but 45 miles to the gallon is a word

                      You guys don't talk about other nissan models that are successful and fly off the shelf. Like the Patrol, sunny, altima etc. What Nissan lose in the failure of the GTR, they make up for in sales of those other models and the entire Infiniti brand

                                        What the hell are you talking about Donut "The Z line put Datsun on the map in the US"!?! Dude show my 510 the respect it's earned on the track. The 510 was introduced in the US market two years before the Z came along, and while both were in production the 510 outsold it more than 3:1. Despite the two cars looking very different, the 240Z's entire chassis and drive train were based on the 510. The 240's rear steering semi-trailing arm four wheel independent suspension, the L24 SOHC engine, even the Z's transmission were all taken from the 510's design. The success of the BRE 510s and later Bob Sharp kicking the shit out of European legends Alfa Romeo, and BMW in 71' and 72' giving Nissan/Datsun 2 SCCA  2.4 Trans Am Manufacturers Championships. THAT MY FRIEND IS what put Datsun on the map in the US, Not disrespecting the 240Z but damn, read this.

                                          One of the biggest things Nissan should do is bring back Skyline based GT-Rs. They'd be able to fill both the sedan market and the high performance market with one chassis. They might not be able to perform as well as the current model but a shared platform would allow them to be cheaper and more accessible to potential buyers.

                                                      It would be awesome to have an Uzi in GTR but they have to make more mass cars how many people do you see driving in GTR not many depending upon where you live vs go outside and how many verses were sentras Altimas do you see. They have to make more mass cars and sell those cars to make a profit to make a really cool sports car. Creating a new car is not easy nor cheap that is why some companies Outsource other companies to use their chassis or their parts and then pay for them hence why you have companies like Chrysler Fiat becoming FCA

                                                        Remember guys Nissan is a company they have to keep their business mindset yes it would be cool to have a new sports car or a revised sports car from them but think about how many people would buy it. The car Enthusiast versus everybody else. There's more non car people than there are car people they're going to appeal to the masses who makes most of Nissan's money. If not that car that they make wouldn't last very long due to amount of money being used and not being made

I mean for God's sake, look at Ford: they slapped a mustang badge on an electric SUV. The sad reality is that the era of fast and fun cars is very rapidly dying and there's nothing we as fun-loving, twisty-road-seeking speed freak consumers can do about it. I hate to say it, but our time with fun cars that look good isn't going to last much longer because the needs of many outweighs the desires of the few, and we, as automotive enthusiasts, are that aforementioned few.

They don’t come forward when there are issues with their vehicles until they’ve gotten too many complaints on whatever the issue is. I’ve had three nissans over the years starting in 1997 and the last one in 2016. Because of their crappy service and inability to work with customers on fixing a vehicles issues, I’ll never own another one.
