    $153,625 for an overweight 350Z that still gets destroyed by a Corvette which costs $53,625 less and looks 100 times better??

    As if the regular GTR wasn't enough of a joke, Nissan comes out with a version for double the price, so it can get destroyed by an entirely new group of cars in its price range?? And they remove the launch control, because their engineering is so shitty that they can't figure out how to incorporate a launch function without grenading the entire transmission.

    Nissan should just hang up the boots, GTR is epic fail.

    They are asking for money because the government lets to many foreign cars into the country and some uneducated dinks only will buy foreign cars because they feel their exotic and more reliable. Todays domestics are just as reliable. If you want a Jap car go to Japan.

    get your head out of your ass. those foriegn cars are not made in japan...most are over 90% made in the USA. due to high taxes on trade. Its cheaper for those companies Nissan North America, Toyota of North America and Mitsubishi North America to produce cars in the united states...and you know who are employed by those "jap" car companies...Americans...barely any outsourcing...something none of the Big 3 can say..considering that vehicle your in right now is mostly made and made up of parts not from America

    Where was your car made??? Yes you are right today's domestics are just as reliable as the japs but what about 5-15+years ago. That's why they are in trouble from their past mistakes. They spent a lot of money buying other car companies and not putting the money into research and development to make their cars better.

    I fully understand and agree that alot of foreign cars are built here and create jobs but I would rather see a GM, Chrysler, or Ford driving down the street. Domestics did build shitty cars in the past but now have proved they can make a quality car and they get shit on by everyone. As for you shady milkman, After I pull my foot out of your ass you should realize that your from Michigan and how much it would suck to loose the big three.

    Nissan sucks anyway you look at it, so they have been EPIC fail from the beginning. They make not one good car or powertrain thats actually worth buying.

    American car companies are in trouble because of clowns like yourself, who would rather buy japanese just because its japanese, not because its a better product. So regardless of how big of a piece of shit a car is compared to the competiton (Honda Ridgeline, Nissan GTR) people will still buy it because they have the false perception that anything made in asia is better.

    So here's GM, Ford, and Chrysler, employing only UAW workers and providing them with high pay rates, investments, benefits, pensions, ect, which is ideally the American way. Then you have the Japanese, who build cars in Asia, and now America, for cheap, because they don't employ UAW workers, nor do they pay anywhere near what a GM employee gets paid, not to mention benefits or retirement. So they can easily afford to produce high quality cars and still make a huge profit on them, whereas GM would make a small percentage of profit making a car of the same grade and selling it for the same price.

    Funny how everyone (you) in America is so quick to blame everyone else, its YOUR fault that this country is the way it is. Every American worker wants fair pay and benefits, but nobody is willing to pay for it. What should have been done long ago was to level the playing field by imposing tariffs on products made by asian companies, regardless of country of assembly. Then American companies would still be able to compete, American workers could still be compenstated fairly, and we wouldn't be in this huge mess we are in right now.

    You obviously need to take an economics class.

    Japanese automakers could employ every American worker in the country and our economy would still be in the shitter. We need to keep the money in this country, not send it over to japan. Profits made by foreign automakers don't help our economy at all, they only hurt it. Building foreign manufacturing plants in this country does not beneift the US economy, they benefit the economy of the country that the company is based in.

    Where the parts come from or where the car was built MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. What matters is where the revenue from selling the car is going. The US economy is built around big business, as they used to say, whats good for GM is good for America. So the more money American manufacturers lose, the worse off our economy is. Which is one of the reasons the economy is so shitty, foreign competition. They make products more cheaply and sell them for more, and you can't compete with that in a global marketplace.

    If GM goes under this country will lose 150,000,000,000. Thats 150 billion. And thats only in the FIRST YEAR. So any import fanboys that think its a laughing matter and it doesn't affect you, think again. This country is in real trouble, and its our own fault for letting the asians sell their vehicles here all these years with no tariffs to level the playing field. The hell with free trade, this is about survival of America and American companies, period.

    What jap car do I own ass clown? If you are referring to my Eagle Talon it was made in USA by Americans in a American owned plant in partnership with Mitsubishi, which GM does all the time with Toyota.

    The car companies are in trouble because they have guys like running them into the ground with your narrow minded views. Hey ethug go take a cold shower:blow me:
