Nothing special. No vans and no SUVS
The Nissan two door was an Altima. I don't think Nissan makes a 2 door Sentra and I definitely have not seen one on the lot. Also, I have never seen a Sentra on the EA or Exec.A.

Pretty much midsize and mostly full size. Nothing fancy and nothing other than what has been previously reported in the line of full size cars. It has been very busy these days and if you are hoping for anything other than a midsize or full size, you will probably be disappointed.

Just got back. After all the talk of SUV's and vans, I was shocked that there were none when we arrived on 3/22. It was full of Impala's, Altima's and Maxima's. We chose one of 3 Dodge Chargers. We liked the car and the trunk fit all of our baggage.

Have used EA many times

We have had an HHR many times. Last time we were there we saw a Kia soul or Nissan Cube but had 5 in our group and thought it would be too small. Anyone know what class these cars are considered. There are only three of us travelling this time and I'm kinda hoping for the Soul or Cube this time. Looks like a fun(or funny) car to drive. Also, we arrive after 9pm in mid may coming in so late does that mean EA will be empty or stocked full of good cars?

Those are compact cars. We don't have them on the EA. We also rarely have the HHR on the EA. Your arrival time means that there will be cars, stocked full? Depends on the supply and demand on that day. All our cars are "good". Does it mean you will get something more than a full size? Probably not.

thursdays are slow days, so, it is not suprising all you found were what was supposed to be there. Mid size and above, in your case, there was one Premium on that aisle. The Maxima.

Haven't used EA since I turned Executive with National. Does the Executive aisle typically have SUVs?

We will have a LATE arrival (after 11pm) on a Friday. Not that we won't fit in a mid-size or bigger but I'm hoping to get something with some room.

Typically, no. You can expect a full size or better for the midsize price. Again, it all depends on how busy we are.
Congrats on your Executive status!!

Thanks! I know nothing is a guarantee It is October so hopefully "off-season" will give me a little bit of an edge.

Executive is great. Using it in Vegas in 3 weeks and hoping for a convertable

Actually, the less busy we are the more likely you will see full size cars and that is about all. The more busy we are tends to pull anything to keep the aisle full, but NO guarantees...ok?. Tonight that included Camaros, converts, some cross overs, small Suvs. We have over 1300 cars go out today, it was crazy.
Good luck on the convertable in 3 weeks. I don't know how the aisle works in Vegas. But, if it is anything like Orlando, they tend NOT to put converts out on either aisle unless they are in "crazy mode".

About a week ago we picked up a GMC Terrain from the EA.

We were really surprised at the selection.
