Right now the domestic brands do not have the reputation that would allow them to go without incentives. Chrysler tried it three years ago. Then two weeks later they got right back on the incentives because without them they couldn't market anything. The brand strength of Honda, the history of reliable, durable products, is great enough to pull in prospects without customer cash.
It keeps Honda and Toyota sort of looking at Nissan. The fact that Nissan is refreshing their product periodically keeps Honda and Toyota on their toes. It keeps that market very competitive. I think it's a positive for Nissan and a positive for the whole segment. The benefit is the consumer has a lot of great choices.
