2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I bought the car on a whim because I had seen the car in a parking lot and loved the look. I love to drive it and we only use it on weekends and trips.The only draw back I have is with the heat and cooling in the rear seat compartment. You can't regulate it. It needs an extra blower to maximise the air flow. I read an article where the top speed is 149 miles an hour and I'll never drive that fast but I believe it.


Best Features

Heated steering wheel and power it handles great and loves to run.


Worst Features

Extra blower on heat and cooling in back seat.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

This car is not only a pleasure to drive, but fun! Nissan does a very nice job of adding excitement when sitting behind the wheel. Really enjoy the acceleration and responsiveness of the handling.


Best Features

3.5 liter, CVT, and intelligent ignition.


Worst Features

Turning radius can use improvement and fuel mileage.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I bought the Max to replace my wife's 98 Gran Prix. She liked the sporty ride of the Pontiac, so the SE was a better choice than the SL. The Maxima has proven itself in comfort, performance and gas economy. I consistently get 22+ mph with mixed driving. My wife gets around 20-21 mph. I now have almost 8000 miles on the car and I absolutely love driving it. The power is awesome under hard acceleration. It is quiet on the highway an has every convenience a driver could ask for. Great car!


Best Features

Heated steering wheel, Bluetooth, Bose sound system, performance, looks.


Worst Features

The 42ft. turning radius s a pain. Don't expect to make a sharp turn into a parking space - you WILL back up and try again.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I have had several Maximas in the past and have always been pleased but this one has me scratching my head. Love the car with a few exceptions. The front end squeaks like a 90-year old wooden wagon. Have taken it into the dealership 14 times for repair, can't pinpoint the problem even with the stethoscope. Have gone back now and tried to drive several other year models with the same body style and ALL have the same squeaking noise coming from the front end. Doesn't do it all the time only when the weight of the car is on that side. Very embarrassing going thru parking lots or areas where the ground is not level. Love the CVT - man this car will fly!!! Just can't get past the noise.


Best Features

Seamless gear changing, Bose sound system, large trunk, heated seats/steering wheel; keyless entry is awesome; steering wheel controls; iPod jack, back-up sensors, memory seats; the woodgrain actually looks great on this, didn't expect to like the tacky stuff but I do. LOVE car, not the noise


Worst Features

The doors sound cheap, doors need to auto lock, need the skylight to actually open, heat/air doesn't work very well in the rear; improve gas mileage; blue tooth could be of better quality - can't be heare very well on other end; make appearance different from your other Nissan cars (grille).

Review

I've driven this car about 20K miles in 16 months. OEM tires not so good, even though better ones are available for less. The driver's seat clicks when the car turns. The steering wheel vibrates when accelerating and / or stopping hard - takes some fun out of the driving. Fuel economy is very bad in city, though much better on the highway. Car interior uses cheap plastic in some places. That aside, the car has terrific passing power (shoots to 100mph easily) and corners extremely well. Intelligent ignition, heated steering wheel and bose music system are great. Car's exterior design is quite different. Folding rear seats are a plus. Leather quality is also good.


Best Features

CVT (with manual shift capability) performance. Intelligent ignition system. Bose music system. Folding rear seats. Power driver seats. Folding-down side mirrors. Seat leather quality. Tire Pressure Monitor.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage. Interior build quality. Some more HP with RWD (something like 350) - maybe turbocharged. Tire Pressure Monitor for each tire.
