Mythbusters did a shown on which is greener, a car or motorcycle. They tested it with motorcycles and cars from each of the last three decades. The results were surprising. The motorcycle released a great deal higher percentage of pollutants than a car of the same era.

Just DON'T buy a Dodge Caliber. Rent one and you'll see why.

I loooooove my 2010 Altima. I got the fully loaded version and it's been my favorite car, and I've had five Hondas, one Toyota, and one Hyundai.

The new styling on the Altima is sweet. I like the CVT in mine and it doesn't hurt that the transmission came with a 10yr, 120,000 mile warranty.

And I'm with swiggles, I love the keyless ignition. I never even get my keys out of my purse anymore. The button has spoiled me! wink

I love my 2005 Altima. The V-6 has lots of power, it handles great and is pretty comfortable. The Bose stereo sounds great but the radio reception is not too good since the antenna is embedded in the glass. I've had to put some $ into it over the years but it has never left me stranded. (jinx)

The Altima SE-R is one of the most little known Baddazz sedans built! Properly tuned the V-6 (basically the same engine as the 350Z) can make about 300+ horespopwer! And for a FWD, it handles amazingly well! Altima V6's are a great bargain!

Like I said, I'm now driving a 2007 Altima. But before that, I was driving a 1999 Maxima with a V6. I loooooooved that car! It had Bose, leather seats, sun roof....all the bells and whistles that were alive in 1999. My husband and I always had to trade off replacing our vehicles because we could only afford one car payment at a time. Well....it came my turn to trade mine in and so I reluctantly got rid of my Maxima for my Altima (which I love, love, love, too). Then.....hubby had a mid-life crisis and left me for another woman. Had I known that was going to happen, I NEVER would have traded in my Maxima....would still be driving it today. It was a frikin' race car.

Swiggles, my wife and I have been doing the switch every other car too. It's her turn this time. We are car shopping again this weekend. I will have her test a new Altima, but we've been looking at the certified used Acuras too. I hate buying new or newer cars. Once my kids are driving, my mid life crisis car will hopefully, be a 370Z or Infiniti G370 Coupe instead of a new woman. Unless my wife finds a new man first of course.

Ha....very funny rusty. I'm glad you're not looking for a new woman and SHE BETTER NOT be finding a new man. But we'll stay off the divorce subject because after the passage of two years since divorce, I'm still pretty hurt and bitter over the split from the man I truly loved. BUT....I'm to the point of needing a male companion......any takers???????? Ha ha. Give Pale Rider some competition.

I hear ya about the Maxima. I'm driving a 2003, fully loaded. It definitely has good giddyup! The Bose speakers are so good that I'm constantly thinking the car is making a funny sound, and then I realize that the speakers are picking up every aural nuance of the music.

My only regret was getting black leather. Way too hot in the summer.

True...about the black. My Maxima was tan with beige leather seats. When I was looking for a replacement, I had a choice of two 2007 Altimas on the lot ('cause they just don't stay on the lot very long!!!). One was red with black leather seats.....nice looking, but I chose a dark slate gray with gray "cloth" seats. So I DO miss my leather.

Trade it in on a new one. We picked up a fully loaded 2012 a few months back. The air conditioned seats are wonderful! Especially here in FL! cool

One where the pick-up truck went with the divorce. I do have a cross-over but that wasn't in the poll.
