2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I compared the Maxima, Acura TL, Accord, and G35. It came down to the Maxima and TL. For a comparably equipped car, the TL was about $2000 more. I loved the way of them drove, so I picked the Maxima becuase it was a little bit more roomy and cheaper. I really like this car. The power and luxury (I got all the bells and whistles) combo is great. I have had no initial quality problems and don't expect to have any. I find this car to be a great highway cruiser, but the real fun is how it performs on winding back roads. The acceleration, handling and braking are excellent. I don't see what all the fuss is about torque steer. 265 hp with front wheel drive is pushing the limits (but fun)
