2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

Traded a 2003 Maxima which I was sad to trade in... solid, fast, dependable and the last Japanese built. The 2008 SE however is also powerful and an excellent freeway cruiser. Quiet, solid, and quick. Around town however it can feel over weight and lumbering. CVT took some getting accustomed to but now love it. No downshift lag when passing... just hit the gas and ZOOM! Now driving a typical "automatic" feels old school with all that engine revving up then down with each shift. Some interior materials feel a bit cheap which was a disappointment. Overall satisfied and will probably keep for 4 years then trade for 2012 Maxima. As my title states, once a Maxima owner, always a Maxima owner.

Favorite Features

The famous Nissan V6 coupled with the CVT. Fast car! As stated above, if you do lots of highway driving this car is tough to beat. Tracks straight, ride is solid and quiet with plenty of passing power.

Suggested Improvements

Wide turning radius. Difficult to parallel park; this is a LARGE car with bad rear sight lines.
