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).

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


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.

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


Review

I have owned this vehicle for 5 months. During this time I have driven it 3300 miles. It is a pleasure to drive. The handling is excellent, it also has very good acceleration. It does have a small amount of torque steer which is not surprising for a FWD vehicle with this much HP. At this point I do not have anything negative to say.


Best Features

I love the smart key, bluetooth, power tilt / telescoping steering wheel as well as the easy exit seat. The leather seats are very comfortable and the back up sensors are really helpful.


Worst Features

The amber digital display is a little dated.

Review

Very fun car to drive and very comfortable for those who like a sporty ride. CVT is not one for enthusiasts but the engine and suspension make up for it. Excellent brakes and handles well enough to be fun yet not beat you up on bad roads. Base sound system is impressive. Navi adds lots of custom settings base needs dealer to change. Leather seats are very nice and soft. Lumbar is so so. Pretty quiet inside but it's not a Mercedes. Getting about 20 mpg with 15 mile commute mostly city driving. 25 hwy but you must drive it lightly. Too fun to keep your foot out of it.


Best Features

Engine. Interior/exterior appearance. Brakes. Large trunk. Steering wheel audio controls. It's not my old clunker.


Worst Features

Provide standard automatic 5 speed option. Non-opening skylight is kind of pointless.
