TL deals galore - where are they
Um, nearly $2K under invoice isn't a good deal?

Well if memory seats are worth the 6K more for a TL then by all means. I personally would just remember where I liked my seating position, but then again I don't have to adjust it everyday.
One thing though, TL's are pretty common too. I see them all over the place. Also after driving a TL and then the Altima back to back I think the Altima is more fun to drive. Good luck with your decision.

TL-S for you.
Altima SE for the wife.
Now, was that so hard?!
And yes, unfortunately, I see more TLs than I'd like. But they are a handsome beast! Especailly mine, resplendant in multiple-coated Zaino Abyss Blue!

Memory seats (seriously Nissan - wtf?)
- Voice command actually works (seriously Nissan - wtf?)
one word, infiniti. Am I the only one that finds it odd to compare a luxury car to a family sedan?

Not really. By comparing you decide which type/level of car you desire. Then you have to decide is it worth the potential greater purchase price for the (entry level) luxury car (TL). Also, he may be choosing FWD, Infiniti is RWD (or AWD which, in addition to benefits, adds weight and complexity. Reducing performance and mpg). I see it as a legit comparison: two powerful, handsome, FWD four door sedans...
My next car choice may come down to the Audi S5 or new Jag XF. Some may perceive that as an odd comparison, but I have to compare/drive/evaluate to help decide if I want two/four doors, AWD/RWD, manual tranny/auto, German/British...
Or the Jag XK. Yeah, sure.
#135 of 136 2008 TL vs 2009 Altima 3.5SL vs 2009 Maxima SV

Hi, I currently drive a 2008 Base TL; while I love this car inside and out one thing I find is that the ride is a little too firm for my taste but that was to be expected with its double wishbone suspension; my family is looking to get another car and have been looking at a Altima 3.5SL or 2009 Maxima SV without the sport and premium packages; what I wanted to know is the ride quality better or at least a little less firm than my 08 TL on both the altima or maxima? and does anyone know between the altima 3.5SL and maxima SV without sport package if one car over the other has a little bit smoother/better controlled ride???
