    I recently imported a 2002 Accord with 55km on the clock, graded 4b. Pretty basic vehicle. Half leather interior, useless Japanese GPS head unit, cruise control etc...

    An opportunity came up to do a straight trade for a 2002 Nissan Stagea RS250 AWD m35. This one has the VQ25 engine, pretty basic interior, 87,xxx km. This one is also graded 4b.

    What do you guys think? Good trade, bad trade? Does the Nissan have any advantages over the Honda, that I haven't considered yet, such as the awd.

    I would trade, on the plus side:
    • unique looking vehicle
    • AWD is great, especially if you live in the area where you have snow
    • wagon is more practical
    The only downside that I think Nissan is less reliable than Honda, but mileage is still low, also many parts should be interchangeable with NA Infiniti M35

    Honda better on Gas. but the Nissan Stagea is cooler for sure. Values are pretty much the same.

    Id want to see pics of both just to compare, but I agree the Stagea sounds like a good trade. Albeit Im sure the Honda gets better mileage.

    And heres my honda... RIMG4317.jpg RIMG4315.jpg RIMG4321.jpg
    My only concern is the fuel mileage. I cant seem to find any exact info on the MPG of the Stagea. By what ive gathered, they get about 12L-15L/100km and have an 80L fuel tank. Honda is about $60 to fill and gets around 780km to a tank (which is pretty good). Being a full time student sucks :(.

    All specs for Stagea are here (including fuel consumption)
    It is in Japanese, but you can use Chrome to translate.
