Jam packed with tons of new features and options. Available safety features include side air bags, traction control, active head restraints (standard), ABS (standard). Would highly recomend purchaser consider traction control for vehicle, especially if to be used in any snow or ice conditions. Markedly improved performance over Maxima's without it in specific circumstances.
Meridian Edition - The heated steering wheel (yes, a heated steering wheel) and heated seats make for an unbelievably enjoyable ride.
If installing an automatic remote vehicle starter, you cannot use standard off the shelf systems due to the security and anti-theft features of the vehicle.
