2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I must say that I wasn't looking to purchase a Maxima but when I found I could get a similarly equipped Maxima for almost the same price as an Altima I was intrigued. I've loved every minute that I drive in this vehicle (and I drive a ton). I've had it for 2.5 weeks now and have driven 1800 miles. I constantly compare it to other cars I see and my friends, many of whom have high end Mercedes, BMWs and Infinitis, cannot believe the features/capabilities of a car that costs a fraction of what theirs cost. The seats are great, the interior controls are easily accessible and the keyless entry/start is fantastic. I'm averaging about 23.8 MPG so far.
