2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
This is my third Maxima, and the 2007 model is by far the nicest, most exciting model ever produced. The CVT (whose effect does not change even when using the manual option of the automatic transmission) is a great option, and I think provides more consistent power. It looks quite a bit like the Lexus on the outside, but not close on the inside, and performance is not markedly different from what I could tell. Price is. A great car, as Maximas have long tended to be.
CVT, Bose, steering wheel and seats retracting upon turning the car off, large back seat and trunk.
Higher grade materials for interior, improve fuel economy; it's not close to the rating.
