2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Wow... after getting beat by pickup trucks, dodge neons, honda civics, and nearly every other car on the road, I can honestly say I am starting to hate this car. You don't pay $30,000 for a car to get spanked by a $10,000 car. It's embarrassing. Forget about passing anyone and just take your place in line behind half the cars on the road. If someone wants to pass you, I suggest you go ahead and let em unless their car is blowing smoke out the exhaust, then you might have a chance to accelerate past them.
Basically... everything but the horsepower and noise. The design inside and out is fantastic and the ride is smooth (but not quiet). Bluetooth and backup radar very cool.
Noise is pretty bad inside for a $30,000 car. Amazing that you really have to get into the $50,000 range to get a car that's decently quiet inside at 60-70 mph. Horsepower is embarrassing. Don't even think about chirping the tires because the horsepower wont do it.
