    Honestly, from the few NYC cab rides I've taken... that'll be a good thing. Odd that they're not going with a domestic car company for it, though.

    There's no charm in a NYC taxi ride, IMO.

    don't know how much "charm" there is in having some middle eastern immigrant play bumper cars across manhattan, but i was really expecting to see them switching to some sort of electric or hybrid model to save on gas...but what the hell do i know?

    Think its funny that its a jap maker, but, honestly, Nissan is pretty fucking good so its likely a damn good move.

    I like it, it reminds me of the taxi in Total Recall.

    i dig it, kinda like a cab out of judge dredd or total recall or something

    besides, it's propably 1000 times more economic, safe and comfortable than a us made car.
