2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car off of the showroom floor in Jan of 2008. I love, love, love my Maxima! Exceptional handling (can take a 30 MPH exit ramp at 70 MPH), acceleration is comparable to a V8, sometimes a bit scary... the power is underestimated. The exterior of the car screams "HOT". Sporty, low profile high performance ride. I took an 11 hour trip in this car and really enjoyed the ride, I averaged 29 MPG with a fully loaded trunk. I love the body style and was a little sad to see Nissan succumb to a Camry look for 2009. Hope the new body style grows on me because I would really like to be a Maxima-lifer!
Exterior body style, tight suspension, lots of torque, manual shifter, lots of AC adapters, roomy trunk, great turning clearance.
More standard features, upgrade console display, change orange lights to green.
