2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
This is my first brand new car, although I owned a 1992 Maxima-(loved it), 2007 maxima-(liked it). The 2009 Maxima is clearly the best of them all. Great performance and handling and fun to drive. Compared to the competitors you get more for your money with the Maxima. New features for 2009 Maxima include push start, paddle shifters, hard disc drive,ipod connection, backup cam (which should come with every vehicle, it makes parking so easy). It's a very balance car. One year later and I still turn Heads.
Backup cam, ipod connection, hard disc drive, push start, Bose, Nav, Heated seats & Steering wheel, excellent performance & handling, great mid- range acceleration.
AWD option, It doesn't need more horsepower but more torque (261>330), more leg room for second row, ipod connection only charges old ipods, voice Nav needs improving (you have to repeat yourself to many time) paddle shifters are not need (never had to use it).
