Not a good car for the $!
By amik on
2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I've had 4 other Maximas and the last one I had was a 2000 model & had over 250,000 miles on it when I traded it in and it was still going. The '07 I've only had it 3 years now & LOTS of problems. In the shop every 3 weeks. ONLY use premium gas & make sure you do not drive this car low on gas, trash will get in cam shaft sil. valves & cause timing & knock in engine & will smoke BAD when you crank it up & it cost $600 just to replace front set and 2 months later had to replace them again & just been told they need to be replaced for a 3rd time. Also change oil at 3,000 miles even though book says 5,000. Also A/C has went out 2 times in 2 years. Now have to replace oil pump & possibly motor.
BEAUTIFUL CAR! Lots of room for it's size & great resale value. Very sporty & lots of power for a V6.
Maybe try to improve engine quality to what is use to be in Maximas. Wish I still had my 2000 model, it was an awesome car!
