2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I traded a Nissan Quest for the Maxima in the fall of 2007 and I couldn't be happier! My parents owned Datsun products when I was a kid--anyone remember the 280Z? This car is fun to drive, handles beautifully, lots of power, and extremely reliable. Not one problem since the purchase.
Heated steering wheel, XM radio, EVERYTHING!
2009 models came out... not impressed with the look--looks like a Toyota. Only negative thing I can say about the '08 Max is the turning radius. You can't turn this car on a dime, but the everything else makes up for it!
