#630 of 4962 The Altima should keep it's name

The same thing could be said about the Passat when it came out in late 1997. It was so much better than the previous version, but sells still picked up, even though it kept the Passat name, and it became a real winner for VW. I expect the same thing will happen with the new 2002 Nissan Altima. The first generation Altima was better than the second gen. model, and haven't sells of the Altima been up lately?

I also think that changing names tends to confuse the buying public. It is good to keep "well known" names even if the previous generations were not up to snuff.

Keep the Altima name.. why change names for every remodeled car? what would Ford do with its Taurus (last change the bubble years) then???
as for resale hurt.. geez, every car with a next year change takes a hit..

"um, the G20 is still around"
Reread what I said:
"Infiniti is only 12 years old and currently only has one model that has lived through the entire life of the brand (G20 was discontinued in mid-90s)"
I had put the G20 in brackets specificly because I thought someone would bring that up. The G20 was discontinued for 4 years in the mid-90s. So the Q45 still remains the only Infiniti model that has been consistently offered since the brand's introduction.

Check out the "All new 2002 Nissan Altima" club at yahoo!
Toyota and Honda are about to get voted off.
