Fits my life right now very well
November 20, 2018
Moved down from a 4runner which I loved, but things change. I have specific needs, was looking for a grocery getter that was nice, tough, able to tote the kiddos (2 they are 10 and 14), and had a reliable engine/tranny combo. I'm a 5 foot 4 inch chic, the legroom and access to instrument panel are great. The doors are heavy and solid. The rear hatch is easy to handle- my 4runner required me to use 2 hands and jump to close (I am small, about 100 lbs). The comfort is wonderful, almost as good as the '11 Escalade LTD I enjoyed prior to the runner. This is just an easy car, fun to drive feels comfortable and solid. Why this car? I loved my Nissan's in the past (280z and Maxima) very solid and reliable. Maxima - I was hit while 8 mos preggo at 8 am one morning by an huge duly going about 45 in my driver side door. I was fine, as is my daughter. I did not buy a Nissan for the simply due to the CVT transition. I don't trust it. The EX35 is as close as I could find - I would have bought a G series but I liked this one the best based on mechanical observation and price. Heated seats baby- even in Texas AMAZING. I could go on but I bought the 2010 EX35 with 60k mile and I love, kiddos and hubs are happy as well. I hope this helps!
