Nissan Cefiro (1997 - 2002)
We say:
What once started out as a well-thought off car with a silky smooth V6 engine and simple specs became a re-dressed and optioned up luxo-barge that even out-Infinitis the Infiniti I30. However, executives seemed to like it as it was a constant best-seller. A good 2nd hand buy given the plummeting value, as long as you're willing to keep it.

Smooth engine, timeless looks, cushy ride.
Later models lacked integral concept, re-sale value.
