2007 Nissan Versa. It was a good car, never had any but the most routine maintenance issues. I had put 155,000 on it and was afraid of the big repair bill that was coming. Bought a slightly used 12 with style and tech in black.

2005 Ford Five Hundred, traded for the V at roughly 150k miles. Great car, and i wish i could have kept it and still gotten the V, but maybe eventually ill but another Five Hundred and mod the crap out of it so itll be my "Sleeper" ;)

I kept my SUV (Explorer) and traded in my Sonata, which I miss too; but curiously, I like to have the extreme combination of a SUV and a small hatchback/coupe. I'm 1.83m (6 foot tall), so I nearly get squeezed in the V, which I almost have to climb up when I leave the car :) ; for the Explorer I've to climb down... (does this qualify me to be a mountain climber, at least as a hobby?)

I wish I would never traded in my cars, but kept them as a collection...

Had a 2002 Subaru Forester Sport. Loved the car, but very costly to repair(engine etc) Took two years of looking until the VT came out. It was worth the wait.

2008 Pontiac G5 GT.















Got wrecked a couple of times. One guy backed into me while backing out of a parking spot the other backing out of a driveway. Go figure.

Holden (Opel) Astra H Sri 2.2 automatic. 2.2 normally aspirated with direct fuel injection, okay performance but not that quick, and performance faded somewhat. It was due for some expensive servicing as routine servicing can be expensive on German cars, and the lack of performance was caused by deposits on the inlet valves (read the catch can thread if you don't want the same thing to happen to your direct injection Veloster). The Veloster had good performance, while steering and handling was quite close to a German car with hot hatch suspension, without the Astra's bone-jarring harsh ride. Add decently fitted out for the price (climate control, leather seats, touch-screen with navigation etc etc), and it was hard to resist. Despite a lot of extra performance, fuel consumption is only a whisker higher than the Astra. Maintenance and servicing costs are less, and now I know how to deal with inlet deposits on direct injection engines so I will make sure that doesn't happen again! My solution will be a can of Subaru upper engine cleaner down the crankcase breather pipe into the inlet manifold at every oil change (7,500km). Fuel system cleaners don't work 'cause the fuel goes direct into the cylinder, so you need to either be preventative or do your maintenance on the inlet tract.

2004 Mazda RX-8.

I did the switch to the VT 2 weeks ago since it seems like the perfect combination of gas mileage, performance, looks, practicality, and standard features. Plus, the RX-8 was dreadful in the snow. The picture was from a 9 mile trip in 6 inches of snow that took close to 2 hours. Scariest 2 hours of my life.

2010 G37x. Still have it but only drive in the winter. Gave my little 2015 turbo V to my daughter. She loves it. Got a Caddie ATS-V now. I love it. Gonna unload the Infiniti and get a Jag F-pace next year for my winter car. The V is a fun little car. I still drive it once in a while.

I still have my previous car (LS430), although my wife has moved into it and she drives it now. The RX300 was getting worn out, so I traded that in on the VT. I've been driving Lexus for a long time now, so the Hyundai purchase was a bit of a departure...

Previous car was a 1999 Mazda protege lx with 450k on the motor. I drove it 6000 Kms across Canada and eventually ran out of insurance cause the thing couldn't pass safety inspection. I fell in love with the look of the v from the start. To this day I get so many compliments on how custom I made it look that it makes me feel pretty awesome to finally have nice stuff lol
