billion auto 5pts As a Nissan dealer of course I am going to stick up for the brand. Now I do have to say that rental companies buy base model vehicles to keep costs down. With that comes downgraded tires, which are noisy. Also, as the power problem goes, there are 3 different ways to go. The high horsepower 3.5 litre, the 2.5 litre, and the hybrid. All of which provide ample power IMO. As for no longer having the hybrid, well thats not so bad. I think well wait until the leaf comes out to worry about Nissans being electric.
