Considering the 2008 Taurus wasn't really fully moving at this time last year (or was it?) I wouldn't write the Taurus off as a sales victory/loss just yet, as much as I like the car.
Thanks for working on finding me the links though, joe. I really appreciate it!

I'm starting to see a few Tauruses around Austin - a couple in my neighborhood, one down at the golf club. Everyone that rides in mine is impressed - it's obviously a great car for taking a few coworkers to lunch.

I have to completely disagree. I don't see anybody confusing the '09 Maxima with the Civic, from behind.
And I have seen them both in person - I own both the '09 Maxima and an '07 Civic.
The Maxima is bigger. The sheet metal is much more aggressively flaired. The shape of the tailights is completely different. The Maxima has dual exhausts out the back. The shape of the trunks is different. The only thing both backends have in common is the line the trunk opening makes as it heads down towards the bumper...a line that is in almost universal use, I might add.
Finally, the Maxima is simply much better looking, when comparing the back of the two cars.

That's what I like about this country.... Everyone has an opinion good or bad.
Maybe If only one person was left - all our countries problems would be solved
We wouldn't have too worry about the Dems not wanting to drill for oil or the Repub. wanting to. ETC ETC ETC

Yeah, but how could all the people who don't believe what I believe 'be so terribly' wrong?

I wouldn't expect someone that owns an '09 Max to agree with me...heaven forbid one would admit that the back end resembles a smaller Civic!!! OMG!!!!
Dude, take a chill pill for real. I know the differences between the two and can also admit that the Max looks much better as well. I wasn't saying that it didn't. I simply said that looking at the back of both cars you see similar lines (which by the way...are not universal).
Besides, I'm entitled to my opinion.

Dude - you need to relax. I didn't come down on you - I just said I disagree with you. If you read my post, you'll also notice that I said I own a Civic, so I'm not sure why you'd think I'd have an issue with the Maxima resembling the "smaller Civic." I just said I disagree that it does, and I posted why I disagree.
And I never said you're not entitled to your opinion, although it sounds like you need to work on your self-esteem if you come so unglued by people disagreeing with you.

I am relaxed.
May I ask...which Civic do you own? I know it's an '07, but which model and trim?
There is nothing wrong with my self-esteem...I actually do think very highly of myself.
