2009 Nissan Maxima Sedan 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Just picked up our new Maxima 3.5 SV. Looks gorgeous and rides pretty well. We arrived home and noticed the passenger side window malfunctioning (unusual rattling noise). We opted for the tech package also, and that should have included a compact flsh drive. The cover to the flash drive is jammed solid and won't come. We have to drive 150 miles again and take it to the dealership to have it fixed. Will not pay that kind of money for such sloppy workmanship and less than optimum dealership that does not check the car put prior to selling. Who knows what other surprises are awaiting.


Suggested Improvements

Try Infiniti G37 - I have 2 of them and they are performing really well. Price-wise, the small difference is worth it.

Review

Traded in a 2007 Altima 3.5SE. Maxima is great...aggressive styling, good power, lots of great features with the Navigation/Music Box. Plus, I have the Sport Package and it handles nicely.


Favorite Features

style, wheels, comfort, sound system, navigation, power


Suggested Improvements

make the cooled drivers seat available on the Sport Package, not just premium package

Review

My last car was the Infiniti M35x loved it but I love this Car more! I bought 5 months ago and have been very happy. I love the lines of this car and the Tech is about the same as what I had in my more expensive M35x. I do not feel that I traded down I was very worried about it but in the end I feel I traded up! This car is really fun to drive I recommend it to anyone who wants great Tech, comfort and a fun sporty drive! Heated steering wheel sealed the deal I would have bought another Infiniti but none of them had a heated wheel! And I saved a lot of money in the process! I am very happy with this car so far!


Favorite Features

Navigation,real time Traffic,bluetooth, ipod,Satellite radio,comfort, clean lines, power, Heated steering Wheel,


Suggested Improvements

All Wheel drive would be nice! The doors sometimes do not close on the first try. some interior finishes could be upgraded

Review

Had a 1997 Maxima, which was ok. Saw this car at a car show while comparing to other cars in its price range. This one offers more of everything (power, features, style) than competing models. Great care, highly recommend.


Favorite Features

Horsepower, interior design.


Suggested Improvements

Better seat heaters.

Review

No major drawbacks about Nissanís best Maxima yet. These are minor inconveniences and as a result, I would recommend this car. I wish sunglasses cases actually fit todayís sunglasses.


Favorite Features

Sporty looking with lots of power. Roomy. Great features like Nav w/ phone no. routing and hands free dialing. Although low to the ground, the ride is very comfortable. Bose system is awesome. Automatic headlamps and up/down front windows are great features along with push button start.


Suggested Improvements

Back-up camera bell and fog light on indicator. Steering can be difficult when turning at an intersection. If you step on the gas hard, the car gets a bit out of control. Trunk sounds like a can when closing. Vibration goes through your body if you lean your leg against the door handle.
