From.the above article, this was mentioned:

"A big challenge is that the Nissan brand, does not command particular strength or loyalty outside of Japan. Rivals Toyota and Honda are known for quality, reliability and fuel economy innovation in a way that Nissan just isn’t. The company’ vehicles, therefore, often require heavier incentive spending to move volume than Honda or Toyota. Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti is also a perennial underperformer."

Agree?

My spouse family use exclusively nissan cars.

Nissan Latio almera cefiro teana x trail

IMHO
Fuel saving yes
No power also yes
Expensive parts yes. Easily broke down parts also yes.
Appearance not appealing also yes

If you are a standard day to day or family man driver Nissan is for you. If u are a spirited driver then this car is not for you

I have a Honda city myself. I liked it more than their sedan.

Overall its a no to Nissan for now.

But u should paultan the image of up and coming nissan that is gonna replace almera sylphy and American teana. Those look really beautiful interior and exterior. I will definitely test drive and consider trade in my Latio if its on par or better than Honda

Thanks for this info sharing....Your spouse's family repeated buying from Nissan suggest something they do must have works. My impression was they trade in at the best value.sometimes even out of the way

Nissan's engineering sucks big time now. It is difficult to get the car repaired without having to dismantle many parts.

Should I forget about Renault or Mitsubishi too. Since they are also connected?

NISSAN used to be good in the 80's with their best selling Nissan 130Y sunny and Bulubird. After that they became pretty lame til today.

Will I buy Nissan again? nope. Never again.

In good faith, yes it's not a powerful car. It's also not for those who don't know how to care for their car. It's a lack luster car with boring design. Parts are hard to dismantle especially the AC design. Cabin air filter so difficult to reach.
Example my Almera, I say if u can skip the SC and service with better EO, the car on highway speeds of 140kmph is actually nicer to drive than 120kmph. Full tank can make it from KL-Penang and back.

General maintenance is actually cheap. EO only 3lit. ATF 3lit too. Car serve it's purpose. No fancy mechanism. Spacious.

From Sunny Blue bird to lame ducks? LOL.

They almost went bust before they were rescued by Renault circa 1999, 20 years ago.

Yikes. I have just realized you are referring to cars made easily 40 years ago.

I am surprised so far no one even talk anything about LEAF when their own survey said one in three SEA consumers is open to buying EV
