2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
No unplanned maintenance. NONE. I have 30K miles on it and still on original tires and brakes. I can't over-emphasize how reliable this car has been. Engine power is excellent, but too much for the tires and suspension of the SL. So easy to spin tires and the body lean is a bit much under hard cornering. I was hoping for a cross between prior cars 350Z and Lexus GS300, and maybe should've got a MaxSE.
Heated steering wheel, steering wheel controls for radio, phone, etc.
Interior materials are a bit cheap. Turning radius is a joke, as others have said.
