Patch Picks: 5 Cars For Sale

Sedans, all-wheel drive vehicles, minivans dot this weekend's auto landscape

If you're in the market for a new car or a sweet used one, here are our picks for the weekend:

1. 2014 Nissan GT-R - New - $99,590-$109,330

From AOL AutosPowered by a hand-built 545-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6, the GT-R makes good use of all that thrust through a paddle-shifted, rear mounted six-speed dual clutch sequential gearbox and electronic all-wheel drive. Roads and racetracks are handled by an electronically controlled independent suspension that adjusts itself to changing conditions, or allows the driver to choose a preferred setting. Handling is also assisted by 20-inch forged alloy wheels surrounding 15-inch cross-drilled Brembo brakes at all four corners. The interior features performance bucket seats, a console mounted starter button and a centrally mounted video screen that can display several pages of mechanical and driving information as well as navigation and audio. Speed sensitive wipers, auto on/off headlights, USB iPod interface, Bluetooth streaming audio and XM NavWeather and NavTraffic also come standard on the GT-R.

Available soon at Lynne's Subaru Nissan in Bloomfield.
