2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Traded in '99 Altima for 2008 Maxima, loaded w/everything but nav system. I missed my Altima. Battery went out within a year. Not prepared for how low it sat (my fault, it's a sports sedan). I scraped the front bumper (visible damage) on the curb of a parking space within a month and had a hard time getting in and out of steep parking lots. The turning radius is horrible and the car is so long that I had a very hard time parking and backing out of tighter spaces. I live in a city where it floods; I kicked myself for two years because the car sits so low I could not really drive in the rain. I traded it in for an AWD Subaru Forrester that sits up high, has great clearance and turns on a dime.
CVT, Bose Stereo, keyless entry and start, nice looking car with nice interior.
Better trunk light. Needs a much better turning radius. Very rough ride over bumps. I'd prefer it to sit higher off the ground, but again, it's a sports sedan so live and learn.
