      Hi Scotty, I realize this video is a couple of months old but I have noticed that you talk quite a bit about newer Nissan's not being what they once were. I am not a person that gets "offended" when someone says that their car is not great, lol. I know you get a lot of people that tell you how their car is great, blah blah blah, lol. Anyway, we have a 2008 Nissan Altima and I would like to know if that is considered a "newer" Nissan or is it one that was made when they were still a decent vehicle? We have over 100,000 miles on it and have basically only performed preventive maintenance on it. I am asking because I am considering either selling it or trading it in (I know the trade-in game) or giving it to my teenage son as a first car to beat around in. I just don't want him breaking down in the middle of the desert somewhere or having a car that is going to be a headache for him. Already a subscriber but I mention your channel to everyone I know that talks cars. Thanks brother and God bless. 👍🏼

          Volkswagen's don't all have horrendous resale values. Look at the Golf R, those hold their value incredibly well. You see 2016's selling for around 30 grand and they were in the mid 30's when new

                            I have a 2006 nissan altima. Its in amazing shape and everything works perfectly(except transmission, just a little less perfect). There are 0 problems with the computers and everything that helps run the car. Im very lucky lol it cost me 1.2k i think? A couple of people i know who have newer nissans, whhheeewwwwww my man they have so many problems. My roommate has a 2016 nissan Altima. The adjustments to the seat are broken, all handles broke, and 2 of the 4 replacements are broken. A window cant roll down, etc ettccc......and dont get me started on the A/C. I live in Phoenix, Az where it gets 120°f most of the year. Forget about putting on your a/c. Just use the bus. Their a/c works better

                                This is why I lease a new car every 3 years. I have my crown vic's and my winter international scout but I like to have what's new as a "3rd" main auto. When my 2014 maxima lease was up, nothing down less than 370mt. minus insurance, dealer practically begged me to buy it out. No thanks. No matter what you get on a lease and you don't plan to buy it out at end there is zero risk of anything other than not liking it a year or two in. Didn't mind the maxima sport tech package but I sure as hell wasn't going to own it.

                                      I just bought a 08 jaguar xj8 the after market replacement parts are reasonable but one mechanic tried to RIP me off for $2500 to replace my rear shocks instead did it myself for $273 car rides just fine.

                                          In 2017 I found what I consider to be the best most reliable sports car in the past decade a 2015 Civic SI coupe 2.4l (last naturally aspirated model) that overnight dropped over $3,500 on Cargurus to $15,900 cuz it was at a Ford dealer near Worcester ma for a few months.....

                                          I Bought it with 15k miles on it and used it as my daily for 2.5 years and put 40k more miles on it. Just this past weekend went and traded it in and the dealer gave me $13,000 towards a used 17 Acura RDX for my GF.

                                            I had a restored white 1965 Chevy Impala with red interior, red Monte Carlo swivel seats, Rally rims, 283 engine with Powerglide transmission back in the late eighties. That engine and tranny was bullet-proof. I later had a 1985 Toyota 4x4 extra-cab pickup that i wish I still had. It had the 22r engine and manual transmission. It likewise was a very durable set-up. Rarely ever had any problems with them.

                                              You address how bad the quality of Jagaurs are more recently. I remember the story of my dad having a 1966 Jag. In the shop so much, a mechanic once sat down in the drivers seat with a screw driver in his pocket. Rip a 12" line in the leather.. Were they ever good?

                                                            I did some checking on this regarding the 2013 Nissan Altima. I compared it to the Toyota Camry and Corolla. The new Altimas are priced roughly in between those two, (not list price, average price paid. List price is closer to the Camry). I went on Kelly Blue Book dot com. For ease of comparison, I selected the lowest price trim levels, no added options, "Good" condition, Private Party Sale with average price. The results were: Altima 7,651 Camry 9,027 Corolla 7,942. The average between Camry and Corolla, for comparison, is 8,485 vs the 7,651 for the Altima. So it is true that the Toyota models have a moderate edge over the Altima. But Scotty is making it sound like there is a really big difference in depreciation between them, when in reality it is at most a moderate sized difference in depreciation. He says Toyota is the best of the best and the Nissan Altima is #$%&*. I don't think so. When you consider that the Altima's seats are enormously more comfortable, it has more headroom and more style, I think that amount of difference in depreciation is reasonable. My question for Scotty is this: If it is true that the Altima is going to fall apart and with a Toyota all you have to do is change the oil, then why isn't there a much larger difference in depreciation?

                                                                what do you think about new Acura TLX's ? they changed to 10 speed transmission and this is skipping when AC is on or there is more stress on the engine. My car only has 10,000 miles on it and dealership is telling me it is normal because transmission is now more efficient. That doesn't sound right. is this a lemon ?

But I know they are not built like they used to be. My 1996 was a stick and I loved it.same with the 94, 92 sentra and 84 300zx. Bring back old nissan cars !!!
