Pricing from Nissan
10000km - $600
20000Km - $600
30000Km - $2500
That's very reasonable. Back on the list of potential cars to pick up in HK it goes.
Did they give any indication as to what to expect post 30,000km? Does the cycle repeat or do you cop a $2.5k service every 20,000km from then on?

13's are out of the box in a family sedan these days.. hell you can get a low 12/high 11 in a "performance" family sedan!
