2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I did alot of research, even tried to look at the American cars, but it everyone in America has the 300m. Thus I decided to break it down to two final cars. I Looked at the Avalon before I purchased the Maxima SL, got the Onyx exterior and black interior. The Maxima was a far better choice than the Avalon. Got the SL with the drivers pref.pkg. The car rides great, and yes I did notice the turning radius issue that was discussed on this site and yes it begs for improvement. But hey I have yet to find the perfect car that will make everyone perfectly happy. I like the car a whole lot, and was happy to trade in my 04 Camry for it. The heated steering wheel is perfect for the cold Chicago winter
I love the Bluetooth and memo pad. The tilting side mirror was lovely. The engine as good as everyone says it is. I love the Xenon headlights, the speed sensitive wipers, and the bose system. I am glad that Nissan finally put some lighting on the steering wheel controls.
Work on the steering wheel radius. Outside of that do nothing to it Nissan.
