EDIT: is "high" blue good or bad?

He posted Google search histories, which is actually pretty irrelevant to his ridiculous claim, but the higher the bars on the graph, the more searches there are for the search string entered.

Notice how much higher it for Honda than for Nissan, and also note he cut off Toyota before recent events that would drive the results up even higher.

But all it is is searches on Google, not actual data. It's completely irrelevant to his ridiculous claim, and even if it were somehow proof of something, it rebuts his claim.

You are, therefore it's your claim to prove, not mine to disprove.

Try posting some real evidence, not just Google search histories.

If he can't, I can.

I have an '07 Altima with 70,000 miles and absolutely no problems. Also I worked turning wrenches in a Nissan dealer service dept. for 5 years.

The main reason I bought the Altima was because of the repair history of Nissans. You can copy and paste your little graphs all day long but the only thing that means is you know how to type and use Google.

How many years do you have working on Nissans and how many have you driven or owned?

We just bought another Nissan due to our excellent experiences so far with them, and how great Nissan has been.

There is no call to get terse here. I , like everyone else, use the data I have which , in this case, isn't hands on like yours claims to be.

My data , other than what was posted, tells me that Nissan has quality issues that Toyota and Honda don't have...yet.

One can gather that your response is based on your personal choice of Nissan and not data of the brand overtime.

That said, just because you chose to buy a Nissan doesn't mean that I was attacking your choice of vehicle at all. All it means is I can't/won't recommend that brand of vehicle and that at all.

If you have a good trustworthy mechanic you should try to buy a car from a private owner. Look on craigslist and in your local paper. If you like it have your mechanic inspect it. Dealers are there for one reason, to make a buck. Usually private owners are just try to get the pay off.
Always a catch either way, but that's the only advice I can give. You can rarely go wrong with Honda but every brand will have a lemon here or there, Toyota is good and our family always had great luck with them, but lately alot of rumors of a decline in overall quality. Nissan, no problem with them besides that hideous Cube.

The more miles that a used car has, the less critical the brand and the MORE critical is the condition of the vehicle. If a car appears (to my mechanic) in GREAT shape AND I can look at the service records, the more likely I will buy it.

I have seen more than a couple of Toyotas and Hondas that were run into the ground prior to 100k and for which the private party wanted a king's ransom.

You run your mouth about something you have no firsthand knowledge of, then warn me about getting "terse" with you. That's a good one

My last question "How many years do you have working on Nissans and how many have you driven or owned?" was to find out if you actually knew what you were talking about. Guess not.

Do you even know what terse means?
adj. ters·er, ters·est
Brief and to the point; effectively concise
