Love this car!
By Rod Newhall on
2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Both my sons have had Nissan's in the past as well as currently. I have driven their cars, and liked the performance, the ride and comfort. When it came time for us to get a new car, we choose the Maxima and haven't regretted it at all. It handles wonderfully in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, along the freeways of Ca. and in particular, along the Coast Highway where we spend a great deal of our time.
The pep...when you are passing, this car simply has "it" when needed. We have the skyroof model, and love the extra light it adds and the viewing it provides when we travel to San Francisco or other large cities. It the Redwoods, this car takes curves as though they were straight roads. Great car!
Our car doesn't have the memory seat option. I would suggest it be standard with every vehicle as it is definately one of the first experiences one has, of sitting in the drivers seat. Having to hassle with settings takes away from the enjoyment of sliding into your car and driving away carefree!
