How did you arrange a 30 day deal to return it?

I am not a big fan of Nissan, make sure you really think it over.[/QUOTE]

In my state you have a 30 day period in case you change your mind. Should be like that everywhere, like any purchase. I mean hell you can take back a $200 DVD player to Wal-Mart if you don't like it, why not a car. I like Nissan. I have a friend with a 2013 Altima and she loves it and she's getting 37mph HWY/ 32 CITY and it has a lot more arm, leg, and head room than the Focus, one thing I've not liked very much since I'm a big man, 6'2", 370lbs. It's tight in the Focus. She let me drive it today, and it was very comfortable and very nice on the inside. It has heated sets, auto dimming mirror with Homelink, the blind spot system, upgraded stereo, navigation, sun roof, and leather, and she paid $26,500, about what I paid for the Focus. So I think I'll be jumping ship for a roomier ride with more goodies. I will probably be selling the Gentex mirror I bought with Homelink when I get it and my mud flaps.

Did your salesman come to your home or did you get it written in the contract?

That's nice, no buyers remorse laws in Florida, you sign that's it, though it's often dealers specific I think one VW dealer I know use to have a 2 week deal.

I test drove Nissan, did not care for the CVT and the interiors too much, but at least the transmission won't sound like your dragging your muffler down the road.

Yes, it's nice. Well I guess I should really be glad I'm getting rid of it before the transmissions starts sounding like that..LOL At least the Nissan gets dual exhaust tips with cut outs!

That's just the US version. If you look at the US compared to the Euro version we lose, along with what I already mentioned above:
1. BLIS
2. DRL
3. Lane Departure Warning
4. HID head lamps
5. Warning Sign recognition alert
and probably more, but this is what I have found. Are you upset yet?
I know I'm pretty pissed at Ford at the moment, to the point of returning my car, and getting my money back, I had 30 days to return it, I have 2 days left. I'm going to go look at an Altima tonight after work. I may just jump ship since Ford likes to outfit their foreign cars better than their domestic version.
that IS depressing

Oh I missed some, Active City Stop, Driver Fatigue Alert, and Auto High Beam, I had that on my 1987 T-Bird Turbo Coupe!! See they get all the safety features over there, while we get nadda! The system uses the same frontal sensors that beep at us when we get too close to an object, but it's not that sophisticated to apply our brakes for us in case we aren't paying attention, like most idiots who text or talk on their phones.

I think that Euro system is just so you can recall recent road signs.

I'm always looking for speed limit signs after I just passed one and missed what it said lol. It would be nice to have something like that to help you.

If you have Navi, it gives you the speed limit for most roads on the map display.
