well i'm not syain that its unrealible. i'm just sayin that its not as practical as the altima, and i would trust nissan's quality over subaru's anyday. plus their straight line speed is not that much off, and the altima, put some hi grip tires and it will corner very very well for its size.

I think WRX is the most practical you will ever need.

4 door sedan makes it easy to get in and out of rear seats.

Wagon if you needed extra cargo space. Offers more space than Altima that's for sure.

How much more do you need?

WRX handles a lot better than Altima does. AWD holds the advantage over FWD here.

Just a note...

Me and my friend were coming back from the monster jam in his BMW 318is with exhaust, chip, intake, probably putting out around 150 hp. We pull along one of these Altimas with the 3.5 liter v-6's on the highway. we finaly hit some clear road, and both drivers stuck it at around 70. The following i found to be unbelievible, as the 1.8 liter engine slid right past the Altima!! The guy was definately on it, because he was on it till about 125.

Just giving my input here, that the 3.5 liter altimas may not be all their cracked up to be.

I still want to see the dyno on those VQ engines. I wonder if it's really putting out the amount Nissan claim it is.

I am POSITIVE they raced a 2.5 Litter btw.....lets see, the 1/4 on a 318i is about 17 seconds and a 3.5 maxima is under 15....so thast my reasoning.

yeah thats what i was thinkin as well. well fc20. i don't agree that a wrx wagon as more space then a altima. the interior passenger volume of a altima is 103 cubic feet. when the wagon is only 90 cubic feet. the wrx is no larger the honda civic sedan. thats why its a compact car. mean while the altima is pretty much the biggest mid size car that you can get. and its even bigger then the max. soooooooooo i would say that its more practical. also i forgot to mention. the altima's interior volume is also greater then that of a pathfinder.
