So sad :shake:

Why do companies like Nissan who rarely build anything of interest never go out of business >?:PLO

because they tend to build cars that simply work instead...

My wife has had two Nissans from new the first a micra which we had 9 years replaced with a Note now 4 years old and never had a days problem with either... yes the are ordinary but that suits us (and many like us).

Yes they have just built the one millionth Qashqai - in only 5 years.

I read somewhere it is outselling the Honda Civic in the UK 6 to 1 ..

But can a car not be interesting and innovative and reliable all at the same time?

The saga continues but unfortunately this bit makes sense:

"The key issue is which motorist in their right mind in Europe or the US would choose to buy a Saab?

"Why would you risk buying an expensive new car if the manufacturer might not be around in three years time?"

Saab lost their way when GM became involved and they started to build recycled Cavaliers.
