I wonder if its Federalized for safety stuff, I know that the Lupo isn't...if so you could prolly import it without too much hassle.
Also in the pic the driver was sitting on the left side. Importing a car is expensive $4000+. I give my car another 3 years max. It's a nissan afterall. Their downfall is anything rubber or electronical got to break.
It is a good deal. But you know technology always improves. In 3 years there might be cars that get 100+mpg. The new camry is coming out in 07, it will look like the new avalon except a little bit smaller. The new altima is coming out in 07 too, they say it should be a hybrid 200hp car. The new accord will be here in 07 or 08.
As long as my car works I'm going to wait. And I'll try all the strategies to save on gas.
