2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
The 2007 Maxima is a blast to drive. It IS a "four-door sports car". This means that it handles really well, and has a powerful 255 hp engine. The CVT took a few drives to get adjusted to, but now I really like it - no jerky down-shifts in cruise control etc. Now regular automatics feel odd. I've become spoiled by never having to take my keys out of my pocket. The negative is - while the sport-tuned suspension makes the Maxima fun to race on curvy roads - it also lets you feel every bump on the road. A worthy trade off.
The subtle mods to the 2007 Maxima body compared to the 2006(grille,headlights,exhaust tips),and interior(control panel with buttons) really improve the look and sex appeal. The CVT is a pleasant surprise. It fully exploits the 255 hp engine - giving maximum output and fuel efficiency at every rpm.
More horsepower!! (You can't ever have enough) No chrome on the gear-box! It reflects sun directly into your eyes.
