I was just about to make an "OMG looks just like DiRF's car" comment before I saw who posted it :P

Driving the highways to campus now, instead of normal city driving, I'm pulling a steady ~26-28mpg.

...and obviously, this picture was taken on campus... that's the Bright House Networks Stadium in the background.

One of these drove by me yesterday, it looked ok but sounded absolutely awful. Hopefully yours sounds like a car instead of an accident waiting to happen.

The SR20 is a fine engine unless you dick with it. Some engines can take to hamfisted modifications, but not this one.

#4, There was this Jaguar sedan in my town some time ago, fine looking but the engine had a horrible knock. And the guy just drove it around like this for a couple of weeks. I don't see it anymore.

No, but seriously, my car runs as smooth as can be. Once it warms up, you can barely hear it running.

Heh, my Chrysler's got such a loud rumbling engine, whenever I drive someone else's newer car or truck I always think it's stalled out when I'm just idling.

My car actually sometimes idles below 500RPM... it makes me think it's gonna stall, but, nope, if it's warmed up, it won't. (It does stall periodically during warm up, so I just gotta keep a light bit of pressure on the gas to keep it idling higher)

All I know is my car won't hesitate to stall in cold enough weather if I let it idle too long after startup. Not all the time though, espescially when I have to feed it some gas before I switch it on in this kind of weather. Fucking carburetor...

My mom's Corolla only stalls when.....never mind, don't wanna open up that can of worms again :P

Hopefully, my mom doesn't die in a gas station fire

Mine has a straight through exhaust (not much longer I think), but engine side, it runs superb, the only 'noise' is a happy, healthy clack of pushrods. From time to time there's some unhealthy noise from the waterpump I think.

Are all Nissans in USA branded Infiniti? I thought it was only the more luxurious models, but the Primera/G20 can hardly be regarded one of those?

I suppose it was badged as an Infiniti here as to not take sales away from the Sentra or Altima or something.

#14, Well, the Primera was sold as a "premium" family sedan in Europe, was it not? Not as a luxury car, but not as a "cheap" family sedan either...

...Nissan wanted to sell the Primera in America, but, with conversion rates, there's no way in hell American buyers would buy it *as* a Nissan, for what Nissan would have to sell it for... so they tarted it up a bit and badged it as the entry-level Infiniti.

#16, here's a handy little chart of all vehicles sold as Infinitis in America http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infiniti

#17, No, that generation Primera was far from premium in Europe, premium were, and still are, Mercedes, BMW and lately Audi. Japanese cars were seen as rather cheap ones here too. At least in Sweden, I don't really know how they were trying to sell these on the continent. The GT was known for great engine and performance though. On par with my late CitroŽn BX 16V =)

#18, Well, you are connected to a continent, you know.
But yeah, the Primera was hardly an upscale car.

Keep in mind that in Europe, BMWs, Mercedes, Toyota Land Cruisers, Mercedes G-Wagens and stuff like that, are not necessarily luxurious vehicles. In the US they are marketed as upscale luxury vehicles and usually come better equipped with a premium pricetag. That's why I cringe whenever I watch Alarm Fur Cobra 11 on YouTube and they destroy so many BMWs, Volvos, Mercedes, etc. Those are everyday cars in their domestic market but we in the US consider them to be premium nameplates.
