I had almost decided to go with a Honda or Subaru. The Nissan dealership was a bit of a drive, but I'd leased there back in the '90's and had a good experience, so I thought I'd give Nissans a look. I was only barely aware of the Kicks and, after driving it, was impressed with the features for the price. I had been turned off based on the HP listed in reviews, but found the power was fine for me.
Dave, the salesman I dealt with was fair, honest and not all hype. He gave me good info and was mindful of my needs and advocated for me with management. I got the price I wanted on the lease and picked up the car the next day.
Love the car and the experience was great!
