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

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

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

Sounds very continental like....hmmmmm....

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.

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.

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.

So you skip SC altogether?

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

Speaking of SEA, is this still not a wake up call for Nissan?

https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/mits...p-se-asia-sales

https://www.vir.com.vn/mitsubishis-ambition...cars-63805.html

Why Nissan is still lagging behind Mitsubishi , what is wrong with them?

Are they still losing money? Because as far as TCM is concerned, they have been....

I don't believe in coincidence, do you? Malaysia again gets no love from tan chong

A sad reminder of how great they were 6 years ago.

I don't care at all about those EV or hybrids nonsense. Just give me gasoline and lots of power and I'll be happy! 😂

But in the EV world they were regarded as the pioneer. So far not even any one have even mentioned that, even the Forbes guy.

Still, it may not be something you care about I reckon, neither do Nissan really ....Look at their bloody dated websites.

To sell ev car like hot cakes  car makers must ensure the battery is reliable, durable, and affordable. I think many potential buyers are deterred by battery warranty and price. Not to mention ev uses a lot of new technology different from conventional petrol car, which people are very concerned with the spare part price and availability.

I don't expect hot cakes status. Perhaps EV is still beyond reach and practicality , but how about PHEV, what I don't understand about Nissan is. Having acquired a large stake in Mitsubishi, they have yet to reap into PHEV tech of Mitsubishi who happens to make the best selling PHEV SUV in the world.

My thought is either it was all Ghosn's doing? Nissan becomes a reluctant investor.

Nissan all over the world is doing bad in sales, it seen down , down with no signs of recovery: North America, Europe and Asia ex Japan

Bad news from USa

......Nissan's more immediate problem was with the continuously variable transmissions it uses in its vehicles. Nissan said it has earmarked an extra ¥66 billion ($590.5 million) to extend warranties to seven years, from five, on CVTs used in certain U.S. models.

The campaign covers more than 3 million vehicles sold from 2012 to 2017, including the Sentra, Versa and Altima sedans, Karube said. The CVTs begin to rattle and vibrate with age.

I am not surprised, because if you actually read through the Nissan FB comments got quite a group of unhappy customer from X-Trail and Serena C26 had issues With their CVT. But today I read something about improved CVT durability in the facelift X-Trail video drive review in Paultan.

On the side note... It seems official from TCM, no more Teana. Focus on SUV than D segment.

*
Then the offering would be thinning....No Kicks, so no HRV fighter, no accord or Camry fighter, and not interested to fight CIVIC or Altis.

Going full sub line up also not there with one X trail

You have missed LEAF that was also reported to come soon....

But most already run out of patience with what is supposedly arriving but never had.

Perhaps move over to Mazda would be less of a wait. It could be a very long while waiting for this whole business of Nissan gang up with Mitsubishi to infighting with Renault to resolve and move on

I view it that the reason Nissan isn't successful here is because of the distributor.

Mostly focused on bottom of pyramid cars when the market had moved on.

Wish they would bring in the Qashqai and Juke. Definitely would be a CHR, HRV and possibly even a CRV fighter.
Qashqais are among the consistently best selling cars in EU.

For Japanese cars, I will pick a Mazda these days.

Qahsqai is decidedly Europe. Juke is replaced by Kicks for good. Mazda is really the only Japanese brand that has made and continuing to make great strides. I find smaller sized brands a lot more offensive these days, even Subaru
