From what I can tell, there is no difference between the 07 and the 08 OR except for "Standard Axle Ratio" (3.36 on 08 and 3.69 on 07.) There is a dealer near by that seems to have a lot of 07 and 08 OR's in both MT and AT, at least according to their web site, so there is a good chance I can get a smokin deal on an 07. The insurance would be a little less, I think (maybe..) Anyway, can anyone think of a reason why I should get an 08 over an 07? My stupid car's "check engine" light came on again today, so I may have to make a decision sooner than later.

Thanks.

I dont think theres a big enough difference to make you not want the 07. I recently got a really good deal on an 08 OR, so i got it, but i was pretty much only looking to get an 07.

Heh, I've got an 07 SE w/towing in Night Armor.
My brother just got an 08 SE w/towing in Night Armor. (Monday dec 31)

Only difference in ours (although yea, it's SE) is 08 has ipod hookup.


Have two night armor SE's in the driveway, lol.

the only thing is if you buy an 07 its already a year old.

Or, it's a year old with zero miles on it.

Five years from now if/when you sell it, it could still be considered a "low mileage" vehicle.

Silver lining. :D

Optimistic little piss ant huh? J/k that's exactly what I did, got an 05 mid 06 CHEEEEEEEEEP. Get the damn 07 and put the Ipod hookup in it if you think it's necessary.

I bought my 06 in Dec of 05. They were knocking some $ off the 05's but not enough thats why i went with the 06. so it really depends on what they will knock off the price

Well, it is a moot point now. My car is not in need of repair (I actually found an honest mechanic around here) and the dealership that supposedly had all of these 07 OR models in stock, does not. I found this out by talking to the Internet sales guy. He said that they do not have all of the cars that are listed in their inventory, but they represent vehicles that they can get. That, evedently, is not true either because the guy said that there is only one new 07 OR left and it is in AZ. If thats how 1st Nissan in Simi Valley does business, I would be very leery of dealing with them.

I am debating what my next move is. I want to get rid of my car before something major goes wrong (again) but I think another car note right now would be spreading the cash a little too thin for comfort. Why couldnt I have been born rich instead of good looking?

I bought my '07 OR MT last january and my dealer had to go to another dealership 200 miles away to find it.

I can understand that part, but any dealership can do that. They made it look like they had these vehicles on the lot. If I had not called, I would have driven all the way over there. I guess that is what they are hoping for. I hate being lied to or when businesses are misleading. Their loss.
