Assumed that the price reduction some time back was a clearance sale of sorts.

Have always loved the Teana, but it stands no where against the likes of Superb and Camry.
Assuming you have been in the car to make such a strong statement like that, do explain where it falls short when compared to the Camry or Superb?

OT: DSGs need not be always unreliable. I think your reference is specific to the VW ones. Almost all major brands have models with DSG/DCT gearbox, including Renault-Nissan, and most of them are not considered as problematic.

When Anurag mentioned DSG, he obviously meant the dual clutch automatic made by Volkswagen. Remember DCT (Double/dual Clutch Transmission) is the generic name. DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) is what VW calls their DCTs. In other words every DSG is a DCT but every DCT is not a DSG.

I did refer to VW's DSG and not the other manufacturer ones.

I thought DSG is coined by VW for is Dual clutch transmission?!

Nothing came close unless you were looking at an A6, E-Class or importing a Citroen C6.

Nissan do have brilliant products globally, but their India marketing strategy is confused.
Hope, Nissan brings new Altima in Ckd here.

The Altima is a brilliant car. I recently bought one in the US and it really brings the game to the Accord and the Camry's alley. The problem is people in India will never embrace the Altima. It would cost around 20 lakh INR (ballpark guess) in which segment most people would love to be chauffeured. Problem is, the Altima is a drivers car, not meant for backseat passengers. I've had tall people comment about the lack of headroom, though leg room is decent. The ride is stiff, good for the US, poor for Indian roads. It just wont be the same Altima if launched in India.
