This is my second maxima,
i had a 95 GXE, which never gave me a single problem until 400,000KM, so i decided to reward nissan again with my purchase of an 07 maxima. I bought it used with 52,000 miles on it. I got the SL 3.5L with every single avail option that include: bose 8 speaker amplified, and 2 6X9 amplified bose subs, bi-xenons, fog, sunroof, tilt-telescopic wheel, heated seats AND steering wheel that goes up to 30 degrees Celsius in the winter, dual-climate, navigation system with thousands of points of interest, rear sonar, power folding mirrors, intelligent key, smart-entry, auto dimming side mirrors and mirror, the list goes on and on and on...
I have had this car for some time now without a single problem, I tinted the windows, and connected a 10" alpine sub to the factory Bose system and it sounds amazing! Clean and Clear Bass without the whole car rattling! I enjoy everything about the car and it compares 1-1 with friends that own Lexus, BMW and Audi's but I only paid a fraction of the price for the car and of course half the car insurance that they pay!
The CVT is okay, not as sporty as other transmissions but I did not buy this because i wanted a sports car, I wanted a luxury cruiser. If you have a light foot, you will get 500-600 km out of a tank. With a heavy foot on the gas, you are lucky to get 350km out of a tank!
What I love is the comfort of the seats, the interior quality, the tons of features and the overall quality of the ride and looks that i get!
Things that I am not big about are:
-the massive turning radius
- the fact that I am a good driver and still need at least 2 re-adjustments to get into parking spots
-the control for the navigation system when entering an address (this could have really been improved!)
There are so many cool features however such as rear sonar, and the GPS actually shows you logos of the gas stations that you are approaching instead of just a generic gas station symbol.
Overall, if you are not looking for a sports car,
there is really no way you can go wrong with a purchase like this!
It is a fraction of the price of German competitors, a far superior build over KIAs and Hyundai's (haha, makes me laugh) and to me (personal opinion) a more trusted name than Dodge, or Chrysler, etc.
Gas mileage will get ya, but I figure any full size car with this type of engine would be similar!
This is my second out of many many maximas to come, GREAT car overall, and I never had a single problem with my first or second one. (1995, or the 07)
BUY THE MAXIMA, YOU WONT BE DISSAPOINTED!
