2017 Nissan Murano

Trim: SL
by Frenchguy on 04-01-2017
Great ride, lousy technology
I am at 4,500 km with my new Murano. Like the car and ride, two things that are don't like:

1. Nissan Connect - lousy connection with my iPhone. none of the advertised features of Nissan Connect work with my phone and am getting bounced from the Dealer to the Nissan Connect help line.

2. Rented a new Rogue a couple of weeks ago while on holidays. It had the D shaped steering wheel. Ergonomics are way better, the Murano has volume control at the bottom, hard to reach without having to avert your eyes from the road. I was really impressed with the Rogue steering wheel, not sure why a lesser model has a better wheel?

2015 Buick Regal

by Frenchguy on 10-06-2014
Good looks, great drive
I just got this Regal, it is a great looking car and the drive and handling is really good too. I have the AWD, will let you know later how this works in the snow. One thing I don't like, the centre console is very limited in space vs the competition. Cup holders are too far back, centre storage is small and there is no cubby hole under the center stack. Seems to me that the ergonomics of this area could be improved (although there is a pretty good size storage bin below the headlight switch.

I have had an Audi A4 and Mercedes C series, this car is comparable in drive and size at a lower cost. We'll have to see how it holds up on reliability and build quality (and re-sale value), however at first blush I would and have taken this over the Cadillac ATS.

2013 Subaru Legacy

Trim: 3.6R
by Frenchguy on 03-25-2014
Great handling, especially in snow
Nice car, this is my second one. Love the handling and size.

Drawbacks - interior finish is behind the competition by a long ways. Noisy on the highway. Remote start disengages when a door is open, meaning that you have to re-start the car once you get the brush out, should be on the foot brake/gear selector like others.
