I purchased this maxima after owning x3 other Nissans. I work home health and have driven this car 169,000 miles while all my co-workers have had new vehicles since employment, I am still driving my Maxima to the "Max". I do feel that the depreciation\trade-in value of such and expensive vehicle should be higher and does deter my notions of purchasing another new one.
The smooth ride, the bose stereo system,and the general status related to driving it.
Lowering cost or increasing trade-in value. Lower financing options for those purchasing certified preowned.
