2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I love all the luxury features, and friends that ride in it are impressed as well. Originally, I was looking at the 2006, but didn't care for the interior "shammy" type material that surrounded the cabin. Glad I waited for the 2007, it is upgraded to a classier feel/look of higher quality suede. I chose the SL also to get the non-perforated leather, very decadent. It is FUN to drive, aggressive engine response from a stop and while passing on the highway. The CVT is refreshing; no more shift shock, which is really nice when commuting in heavy traffic that is moving at a wide range of speeds at any given time during the trip. Preferred Pkg is a must to really truly enjoy the luxury.
The keyless door, trunk and ignition is a dream come true - no more digging in my purse to find keys. Just walk up, push a button, get in, turn the switch to start the engine and GO! The 6 disc MP3 player, Birds-Eye view Navi feature, BIG trunk is clutch for golfers. The drive is S-W-E-E-T!
The ride would improve with a different brand of tires (Conti is factory standard). Wish the doors would lock when you put it in Drive. Add touch-screen and voice recognition for the navi instead of the joystick. Add a pull-down grip in the trunk so you don't have to touch the paint to close it.
