Had an '07 Altima 3.5SE that replaced a '97 Maxima. We needed a quick fix to haul a newborn around, but my wife grew tired of riding in the back and lack of luxury, comfort and other extras. Needless to say, it was traded in after 1 year of use for the GS. The Maxima is still running strong approaching 300k miles. It's my dad's favorite daily driver. And my Z has only seen ~500 miles since its last oil change in March '08. The Pilot has proven its usefulness and the Benz is going thru a lemon law filing. If it goes thru, my wife wants an IS250 or a Prius (her daily commute is 80 miles).

BMW 540i was my previous car. Had way too many problems. I've had my GS for little over a year and no problems.

2002 Lincoln LS, probablly the best handling stock suspension I 've ever driven, really guys who have had one know what I'm talking about. The GS is a much better car all around even with it's minor annoyances

my previous car was a 05 350Z. I grew tired of driving a stick and wanted a lil more space.

03 Honda Pilot. Wish we kept it as a 2nd car for winter driving though. However, since it was 1st year 1st gen it would have been at risk of a transmission failure down the road...
