Smooth but Slow
By Mike Jones on

Vehicle

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I previously had a 2004 5 speed automatic. It was very quick. The new CVT tranny is interesting and creates a quite pleasurable smooth ride. However, I'm very disappointed with the performance with the CVT. From a dead stop, full throttle the car is quite slow. Other than the off the line, the car seems to have more than enough power. If it weren't for the slow off the line this car would be an easy 9.5-10 across the board. If a smooth comfortable ride is your thing this is your car. If you liked the sport from previous Maxima's, I'm sorry to say it's been killed.

Favorite Features

Other than the slowness - my favorite feature is the CVT

Suggested Improvements

speed it up off the line - I'd estimate a honda accord, camry, ford pickup, or V6 mustang could beat the heck out of this thing off the line.
