2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This is my 2nd Maxima. I had an '02 SE for over four years. This one soundly beats that one in terms of features, comfort and performance. There are some areas where this one falls way short in comparison though. Mainly, the build quality of the interior stinks. Very cheap. You can really tell where Nissan was pinching pennies. I've had issues with the exterior finish as well. Due to all the squeaks and rattles I'm planning on trading for an '07 Acura TL after keeping this car for only one year.
Comfortable seats. Lots of power gizmos. Excellent performance for a front wheel drive vehicle.
Improve the quality of the interior especially the center console and stack. A 30k plus "flagship" should have better than this flimsy junk.
