2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Bought the SV with sports package. Really like the looks of the car and the engine/ transmission combination is sweet. Mileage is also quite good for a car of this type. My main complaint is that the ride comfort with the sport suspension and the low profile tires is extremely harsh and jittery on any road that is not reasonably smooth. And in my city in Ohio, smooth roads are in short supply. I know it is a sports sedan, but the engineers should have been able to design a more supple ride. In addition, I need to get the front fender repainted due to a dark area on the top. It is covered under warranty but is a real bummer.
Engine, CVT, mileage, exterior and interior design.
Needs less harsh ride on the less smooth roads. Quality control not the greatest
