My wife just took delivery of a very clean 95 ZX TT. I haven't driven a turbo in years, and holy cow! I know what you mean about the "kick". I punched it twice in 2nd and 3rd and it felt like it jumped, but came back nice. Glad I watched your video. Learned a few nuggets on driving her new rocket ship. I have to agree with you that this car is getting scare, and it does turn heads. Good video. Thanks for posting.

Excellent video. I like that you've shown the various cuts and angles and had good camera shots to show the specific details. What I like most is that you showed some of the issues I've experienced with walls out of square and small gaps. This video will help me with the crown molding project I'm starting this week. Thanks for the nice job. Very helpful.

Excellent review. I've had my JX since 2012 when it first came out. I did check out the new Pathfinder and liked it, but for the extra $10K, it was worth all the extra features and technology. For 24,000 miles, the car still looks and drives like new. It was incredibly comfortable on an 8500 mile cross country trip. Freeway milage was 24.5 and rough weather and hills as low as 17.5. You didn't mention the Infiniti Personal Assistant which is a great service especially for those on the road all the time or taking long trips.

I learned a lot from your videos. They are very well done and I thank you. I have two showers to re-model and add a third bath. I've seen a lot of products out there for building the shower walls. Do you recommend any specific product such as Durrock, Hardi Board, Kerdi, etc. I've done repair using Red Gard and really had a good result.

My wife just purchased a 1995 ZX and it still has the spare tire. Nice to see how well it inflates. Just hope we never have to use it. Thank you for sharing your video.

I just purchased this at Bed Bath and Beyond. If it fails, they will always take it back. The reason I purchased it was after researching it, and looking at YouTube reviews, it appeared to be a great value for the money. Plus, the Associate at Bed Bath and Beyond has used it and was able to explain the differences between machines and was also able to show me how to use this machine. I can't wait to try it. By the way, I stopped purchasing major appliances at places other than BB&B, Costco and SAMS Club. Their return policy is fantastic and never a question.

After removing all popcorn ceilings, my wife insisted that I paint the ceilings with simi-gloss. As you stated, it shows every flaw. If I were to re-pain with ceiling paint, will I need to prime the ceiling first, or will the ceiling paint cover the simi-gloss finish?

This is one of the best video reviews of any new vehicle I've watched over the past few years. It covers the car in detail and doesn't appear to be biased in any way. What I like most is the discussion moves quickly and covers the most important components showing the positives and negatives. I've found other reviewing entities cover vehicles well also, but many seem to be more commercial like or the narrators tend to be more biased in their opinions rather than being objective. For someone that is using YouTube video reviews to help in their decision making process, I would highly recommend videos from Alex on Autos.

 I was leaning towards Durock and think I'll go with it. Thanks very much for the advice.

I have to give this dealership 5 stars. I can't speak for the negative reviews, but today was our second new car purchase in 4 years from Infiniti of Tacoma at Fife. There have been many improvements since our last vehicle purchase. They have a brand new facility which is beautiful and luxurious meeting Infiniti standards. Its comfortable and inviting. They also provide plenty of refreshments for their customers. The Service facility is vasty improved and now totally enclosed for customer convince during inclement weather. The new sales model has eliminated sales commissioned sales personnel. They now have Product Specialist to show customers around and provide a no-pressure experience. Once the customer is ready to make a purchase, one of their Sales Managers walks them through the process and works with the Finance Manager to finalize the transaction. My wife and I found that our trade-in offer was acceptable and the negotiated price of the new vehicle more than fair. There was never pressure to purchase any particular vehicle, accessory or service. The dealership has a very nice Delivery Room for the customer to go over the newly purchased vehicle with the Product Specialist. A very pleasant experience. We trust this dealership, their staff, and will continue to use their Service Department when the time comes. We will also be back when it comes time to replace our second vehicle.

After researching boating and going through the certification course, I wanted to learn about boats. I found the sales staff accommodating and very helpful explaining the types of features and boats that might fit our needs. We were considering purchasing a $60K boat, but with loans on a 2013 and 2014 vehicles, we weren't sure if we could get financing at this time. What really disappointed my wife and I was the lack of follow up by the finance department after applying for financing. Several weeks went by without a call back. I finally called back just to find out that we had not qualified for the boat we were considering. We asked the finance director if we could find something less expensive that we might qualify for and he agreed to assist us. Needless to say, we never received a call back and could not get a hold of the finance representative, but was directed back to sales instead. Being frustrated, I located a real nice used boat in Oregon and was able to secure financing without a problem. It was worth the drive and more than likely we will be returning to upgrade to a larger boat once both our newer model cars are paid off. After this experience, my wife and I will not consider purchasing any new vehicle through the Larson Group. There is no excuse for a dealership not to contact a prospective customer regarding financing.

We just made our first boat purchase from River City and it was well worth the 3 hour drive from Washington. Very professional staff, honest business people and excellent and fair price for what we purchased. Ken held our boat without deposit and made sure it was totally detailed and serviced prior to our arrival. We made many phone calls and several text messages prior to deciding to make the trip and found the dealership to be totally available to answer questions promptly. When we arrived, we were greeted by staff and given a total review of the boat followed by a water drive test. They made sure the boat was properly set up with our vehicle and ready for the road trip. There was never any run around or false advertising. I'm still stunned how well the boat presented when we first saw it. I've seen dozens of used boats at several dealerships and have been disappointed. Ken's shop is top notch. Everything shows beautiful. I highly recommend this dealership.

I took the 3 hour weekend class offered on a Groupon and found it to be well worth the money. After recently purchasing the Breville Barista Express, this class made it a lot easier for me to use my own machine. Although the barista machines in the class are commercial units, it really helped me understanding the process of extraction, measurements and milk foaming. The instructor was excellent and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. I highly recommend this class for those interested in brewing excellent coffee at home, and is a great introduction to those interested in working as a barista.

If your in the market for a high quality, clean luxury vehicle, this is your dealership of choice. No pressure, no games, honesty and integrity no matter what level of car you are buying. After several years looking for a really nice Nissan 300ZX, my wife saw one from Fisher Imports on Autotrader. She contacted the dealership and talked to both Jim and Elliot about the car and was very impressed with their professionalism. We live 20 hours away from the dealership and considered driving to Laguna Beach to see the car in person. Based on the information we were provided with and the additional videos Jim and Elliott took for us so that we could get a better handle on what we were considering buying, we decided to purchase the car site-un-seen. This was not a decision we took lightly and a very hard thing to do. Elliot had Jimmy worked with us on the purchase details and paperwork. Not being able to see the car other than the posted photos and videos, Jimmy was patient answering all my wife’s questions and concerns and made her feel like she was their most important customer. Jim had to be my wife’s eyes and ears since we did decide to buy sight unseen and there are always things you think of later that you should have asked. Jim responded without hesitation to every question asked and found answers to all he could. Once purchased, Jim then arranged the shipping of our vehicle, which was delivered via a covered transport company as we had requested at a very fair cost. Throughout the transaction, both my wife and I were treated with the utmost respect as if we were VIPs. I appreciated both Jim and Elliott sincere concern that my wife was happy. This was a very emotional decision for her and a long time finding the right one. My wife and I have traditionally always purchased new vehicles since we’ve had bad experiences with used vehicles. If we ever decided to replace one of our existing vehicles with a used vehicle, we would certainly consider buying another car from Fisher Imports based on customer service and the caliber of vehicles they sell. This has been a very good experience for us and we would not hesitate to do it again. All I can say to anyone thinking of buying from Fisher Imports is to not have any hesitation, as Jim and Elliott are both a class act, which is very hard to find in this day and age, let alone in the car business! This was truly car buying made enjoyable!
