2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Just picked up my Black on Black Maxima 3.5 SV. Got it with the sport package. A great car in and out ! The redesigned interior screams luxury, while the carbon trim and sport paddle shifters give it a sport look/feel. This car has all the toys! Bluetooth, navigation, heated seats, premium leather, etc. The CVT is smooth and the driving is great. The car is very spacious, even in the back. For the price, it beats the Acura TL easily and gives you a lot more features than you can get in any German import. Car of the year!
Everything! Nissan has given back the "flagship" title to the new Maxima. It's fast, luxurious, packed with the latest technology, nice looks, all for a great price tag!
The inside door levers (handles) are made from painted plastic. It sort of takes away from the quality from the rest of the interior. Everything else is made from high grade and nothing feels cheap except the handles.
