gimme some mpg
By heygary on
2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I've had the '07 for about four months and have put six k miles on it, and have not gotten over 23 mpg. I've bumped the tire pressure to near forty pounds, went with synthetic oil, and still average about 21-22 mpg city or highway, doesn't matter. I do really enjoy the ride; starts are indeed less than stellar, but on the highway the car performs admirably. Hard acceleration gets you lots of torque steering issues. Love the keyless entry and rear sonar. CVT is super cool driving up and down mountains, as you don't feel the car downshift.
keyless entry, bose sound system rocks, and rear sonar is cool. Heated seats are nice treat.
Get realistic with estimated mpg. I owned a '96 maxima with est mpg of 26 and always got that. I contacted Nissan, and they tried very hard to blame my driving habits, but if they were so bad how did I get the est. mpg on the '96?
