This commercial highlighting the 2016 Nissan Maxima played all weekend long on ESPN:
As the owner of a 2009 Maxima, I am sorely tempted each time I see that ad. (After all, isn’t that what advertisements are supposed to do?)
But here are the top five reasons I’m resisting that temptation and not getting a 2016 model:
5. I couldn’t be seen in a car that changes colors when you turn on the ignition like that one does.
4. I don’t wear a suit, work in a skyscraper, or commute to the suburbs.
3. My 2009 is paid for.
2. My current payments are 0.
1. As of right now, I don’t have to make a monthly car payment.
