2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
I looked at just about every entry level luxury car there was out there. 328xi, lexus 350, infiniti g35, saab 9.3, audi a4, mercedes c300. All had the same thing in common, did not offer anything more than the Maxima except AWD, most looked nearly identical! All the same features for less money. I cannot see why people would pay thousands more for a car that is so close to the Maxima. I am a former Cadillac, Lincoln and BMW owner. I chose the SE, this is more sporty without the wood accent. This is an entry luxury car without the price tag. Without the name plate either but I can say one statement. I saw all the other cars and could have bought them instead, I love my new Maxima.
My favorite feature is the telescopic steering wheel and the features on the bluetooth phone. The memo pad in particular. Oh and the price tag for so much car.
Offer an AWD model, this nearly made me not buy this car.
