2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
After one month and 4000 miles I am very happy with my Maxima. This car handles comparably to my 2002 Maxima, which I traded in with 215,000 miles. I have had no problems with anything at this point, just like my old one.
The handling is very impressive for this size of a car. All amenities are similar to the 2002 version, with small improvements everywhere.
The CVT is a little sluggish off the line, you won't set any speed records here, but the car is very quick once up to speed. Also, the gas mileage is only about 21 mpg after 4000 miles; my 2002 automatic regularly stayed around 26 mpg.
