2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I've loved Maximas ever since I first test drove one in 1995. I then went on to own a '92 Maxima, '98 Maxima, '03 Infiniti I35 (Maxima in disguise) and now this 2008 Maxima. I feel that this 2008 Maxima is probably the worst of all the other cars I've owned. Having bought this car new I have already noticed light engine ping which is downright annoying. I have used all premium fuel grades and the car still pings lightly. This is my major gripe with this car. Nissan of course says that it is normal. On a more positive note; the CVT will impress you with its quickness and eerie sense of moving the car very quickly at a very low "fuel saving" RPM. But in the end, I should've bought an Avalon.
Navigation, automatic folding mirrors, bi-level xenons that can actually illuminate a short building's roof line, cornering lights, Bluetooth. PSI meter on screen with the navi option, awesome & clean sounding Bose stereo and awesome I-key.
Make engines that do not ping at all, improve gas mileage.
