2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
2009 Maxima 3.5 SV with Premium and Technology package in Silver Color replaces my 2004 Maxima. Nissan has done many things right with this car. You need to drive the new Maxima to appreciate the "Four Door Sports Sedan" motto. From outside, it has very unique and appealing design (pictures do not tell the story - you need to see it). Inside is full of technology which is very well integrated with the needs of the driver. The ride comfort and power is amazingly well blended in the premium package. Nissan raised the bar so high with this model that now they need to compete with a different class of cars. I strongly recommend this generation of Maxima.
Excellent handling for a 290 HP front- wheel car. Maxima has the best CVT implemented in the market. Inside, the Bose stereo provides an amazing sound to multiple music sources. Excellent iPod integration. High quality materials inside and out, including comfortable leather seats. Very quiet ride.
At this price point, Nissan engineers did their best. A few things they need to take notice: Add a fog light "on" indicator on the dash (same problem was in previous model), update the software that shows the outside temperature in the dash board so that it is centered to the screen when displayed.
