Maxima; short term review

Initial concerns about FWD were tempered by the dealer who indicated that the engine has a lowered center of gravity which supposedly minimized torque steer. Three months of driving the Maxima hasn't dispelled those concerns. The torque steer is palpable and the front end rise during hard acceleration is disarming. When not under strong acceleration, the Maxima drives and rides smoothly. A recent trip through the mountains of western North Carolina under near bilizzard conditions demonstrated good stability in high winds and above average traction on snow covered roads. The crimson black color has elicited numerous compliments and questions about what type of car it really is. Some have thought it to be a Lexus or Infiniti. Interior comfort is well above average as well as fit and trim. The CVT transmission is smooth, quiet, and capable. Paddle shifters work remarkably well.

I would have to say that this car is by far the nicest car I've ever owned to date. I previously owned the 2006 model, but this one is a true winner hands down. I bought the Fully loaded 2010 Nissan Maxima SV!! And boy is this car nice. The Handling is great. The Features are wonderful. The price was a lil "iffy" at first. But... I'm a nissan lover. What else can I say. Most of all it turns heads everywhere I go! The Crimson Black color is ONE OF A KIND! Go get the 2010 Maxima...

Best Car I Have Evere Owned

Clear and simple...the Maxima is the best value out there. Sure, I could have gotten an Audi, Mercedes, BMW, etc., but not one of them can compete with this car for the value. The dealer offered massive incentives, so I walked away with a 2010 SV Maxima with sport package for under $30k. Try to get a BWM for that price! This car has elicited many great compliments from friends and co-workers. Love the car...my ONLY beef is that Nissan needs to be greener. They need to make cars which get better gas mileage and don't need premium gas.

I bought a black SV with premium and tech packages last week and so far I couldn't be happier. This is one of the most unique cars on the road. It definitely stands out from other family sedans. The power, comfort, and convenience features are the best of any car I checked out. I put a picture of the car as the wallpaper on my computer, and the exterior styling is so beautiful I can't take my eyes off of it.

This car has awesome power and features. I tried to drive another car and immediately was underwhelmed by the transmission. The CVT in the MAxima is very nice. I got the crimson black on black and appreciate the build quality of the inside and the paint quality on the outside. I am babying this car for sure......

I bought this car about 3 months ago. It was a dealer demo and feel i got a pretty good deal on the car. The car comes pretty loaded at the base model and has great pickup. The CVT trans is fantastic and it is great not to feel a car shift. Smooth start right of the bat and you are up to crusing speed in no time. Great car and many friends have told me that i will love this Nissan as they have had a MAXIMA IN the past and highly RECOMMEND this vehicle.
