2010 Nissan Maxima SE, Houston, TX

After browsing this forum for a while now and after my endless search for a second car and wanting a dependable and spacious family truck, I finally settled for the Nissan Armada. I am not new to the Nissan family, as I currently drive a 2008 Nissan Maxima SE. So, this is my second car because I wanted a spacious SUV for adventure.

http://my6thgen.org/f13/emiles-petitfreremaxima-17985/

Here is what I have settled for, but I have not closed the deal yet. The dealership is located 4 hours away from my city. I had to drive with a buddy of mine today and the dealership had to send someone out today to show me the car and let me test drive it. After doing all that, I decided I liked it and will like to buy it. Then, I had to take another 4 hours drive back home.

Here it is. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello.

2010 Nissan Armada SE with 63,700 miles. I am hoping this car last me till over 250K miles and hopefully does not give me a lot of trouble as I plan to take good care of it.

Date of purchase: 5/11/2013

Bought with 63,700 miles on odometer.

CURRENT ODOMETER: 82,000

Congratulations and welcome to the forum. Is that limo tint on your windows? The color matched paint on your rims look great!

Thanks for the welcome, guys.

The tint is the same dealership tint that is on all Armada's that leave the dealership.

I too think the color match with the rims is interesting. For me, the truck's color kind of have a miliatry look to it. I don't know if others see it like that. But it appears to me somehow like that. The only thing is I like leather and this does not have leather. So, I am already looking at how much it can cost me to install katzkin leather in it. I wish I knew a reputable shop that could do it and for what price.

So, I made the 4 hours drive each way finally to go pick up my Mada. Wow!!! That girl is BIG, but she is no slacker. She can get up and go. Who says BIG girls can't run? I had a friend of mine drive my Maxima, as I drove my Mada. And yes, he had to keep up, as I tried to see how agile this BIG girl could be. And yes, she can definitely sprint. I love this car.

Here are a few pics of my Maxima and Mada at dealership when I picked her up yesteday.

I will use this thread as my thread to keep up with maintaining, modding and keeping up with my maintenance.

Date of purchase: 5/11/2013

Mileage on odometer @ purchase : 63,700

Will keep on updating thread as I maintain and take care of my car. So this will be like a "carfax" for any buyer if or when I ever choose to sell my Mada.
