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


Review

Bought the Max new in Jan 07.
First dissapointment gas mpg.
Usually get 19.5 split city highway driving.
Never
been over 24mpg even on long highway trips going 65mph.
Struts were replaced at 15000 miles by warranty.
Tires were wore out at 30000.
Whole new sunroof put in at 35000.
Needed rear shocks at 50000.
Rear ABS sensor for $800 at 55000.
The car is currently in the shop for the other rear sensor, one front sensor, and actuator for a total of $2500.
The dealer called Nissan and got them to pay half of the last bill cause there was another one in there for the same thing.
They know this is a problem but will not recall.
This is my first and last Nissan.


Best Features

The power, transmission, style, the overall look. The car is fun and comfortable.


Worst Features

Have a recall on the ABS sensors. Better gas mpg.

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


Review

I bought my 2007 Maxima new and it now has 22K miles on it; I live very close to work. At 19K miles the AC compressor went and took out the whole system including the serpantine belt. We were stranded in the middle of nowhere 75 miles from home. Thankfully I had 9 days left on the 3/36 warranty so the AC was covered. However Nissan did not have the compressor in stock and it was on backorder for 2 months. What does that tell you...Must be alot of AC's going out. They did provide me with a rental car but it was still a pain not having my car. Other than that nightmare the car has been OK. It's fast, it handles fine for what it is and it's comfortable. The Bose system is great.


Best Features

The 6cyl motor is bacically the same one Nissan has used for years;it's bullit proof. The brakes are the best Ive had on any car and I've owned a few...The Bose system is great to say the least and the car looks good ( to me anyway..)


Worst Features

The interior is a bit on the cheap side and I hate the amber interior lights. I have foam insulation coming out from under the trim on the dashboard. My 1998 Maxima was of higher quality overall.

Review

The vehicle falls some where between a Carmy, and an Accord; you won't feel like you are floating, and you won't feel like you are in a truck. The transmission doesn't have a quick low gear; so no jack rabbit starts here. The V-6 is solid, and allows for competent passing. I am tall, but the driver's seat is comfortable. I drive 120 miles to/from work each day, and have had no problems. Read about the recalls, and complaints before you look at the vehicle; know what to look for. Turn to aftermarket products, if you question Nissan's quality control; ie. brakes and shocks/struts.


Best Features

Leather interior. Layout of interior. Comfortable ride quality. No surprises or silly add ons.


Worst Features

,Better quality control for shocks/struts and brakes. I have read too many negative reviews about these parts. Don't cut corners to save money Nissan.

Review

I bought this Maxima brand new. It was my 4th maxima and because I was so impressed with previous models I didn't hesitate to upgrade. Big Mistake ! My 2003 model gave me no problems at all. I should have kept it instead of trading it in. Since my purchase in 2007 i have replaced the battery, the CVT, and wheel bearings. It surprises me to see how many other people were experiencing the same issues I am. My struts are making noise but Nissan won't replace them until they get worse. I hear some rattling in the engine that the technician says he can't hear. I thought it was the mechanics but maybe it is just the car falling apart and they are used to it. The car shakes at high speeds also.


Best Features

I have all the bells and whistles that are a pleasure to have such as GPS, heated steering wheel and seats.
