Excellent car handles well plenty of acceleration

My 2018 Maxima it’s a great touring car it has plenty of acceleration handles well and is comfortable to ride on long journeys. And all wheel drive version would be better for a treacherous New England roads.

Reliable & pretty

This is a beautiful car & roomy for my 2 kids. Huge trunk. My vehicle has a lot of amenities. Duel moon roof, heated seats, steering wheel, & leather seats. Which is a must with kids. I love nissans. They are very reliable. Low maintenance is a must for me. This is my second Nissan.
