  1. Brand new 2005 Nissan Altima. It has a total of 350 miles on it. It's goldish, grey...I think they called it coral sand. I'll try to post some pictures later today.

    Awesome! I know at least 4 people at my school with Altimas. Not a bad car, apparently they open up very nicely on country roads. Also, don't they (apparently) have really nice sound systems?

    That's what my wife wants, with a 3.5. Did you get the 3.5 or the 2.5?

    Before I got my Maxima, I test drove the Alt 3.5. Bitchin'!!!!!!
  6. I got the 2.5 because of money. The sound system is actually a lot better than I thought it would be. I'm still trying to find a digital camera to borrow from someone to take some pics.

    I like new Nissans
  8. The only real problem with the not really the cars fault (I don't think).

    Before I start, ignore the non technical talk of car parts.

    There's this red, waxy, lubricant stuff on some white and black parts under the dashboard on the drivers side. And my theory is, when the car is running, this waxy stuff melts and drips onto the carpet, while this stuff is easy to's a hassle. I'm pretty sure that it is the problem of the place where I bought it. I don't know if the wax is actually protecting anything or if I should just whipe it off, so I'm giving them a call tomorrow.

    Hopefully everything will turn out good.

    New cars rule.
    ah, very technical descriptions!!! ;)

    I just bought a new-to-me car that can hold 2 double basses, a slab, and a rig all at once. Station wagons are the shiznit.
