2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I have owned several Nissan Maximas in the past and this one has been my worst experience. Front wheels cause steering wheel to shimmy between 50 and 60 mph. Have had it in dealership many times and can not fix the problem. Torque steer is very noticable when you accelerate, almost to the point of making the car feel unstable. Appears to be disproportionate amount of torque pushing the car to left on accelleration and then back to center on deceleration.
Blue tooth, power is good, CVT is great, trunk room good, headlights very bright, memory seats and wheel are great. Quiet ride but not as smooth and stable as Nissan Murano.
Steering radius is terrible, hard to park and manuver. Gas mileage is poor. Doors sound cheap when closed, front wheels shimmy. This car has improved in many ways for its time but to living up to the feel of the previous generation Maxima.
