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

Review

This is my third Max; had the first one in 1989, and 2000. Love Consumer Reports, but they are dead wrong complaining about light steering at low speeds. THAT is one of the features that enables this car to maneuver easily. Driving around town,however, I am only getting about 19.5 (avg of -30 mph). Started to go cheap, but when compared, the features of the SV far outweigh the S for the $. Had a 2006 VW Passat Sports6, and while the Max doesn't drive as tight as that, it is far more comfy, and I don't anticipate living at the dealer's service facility for minor stuff that = a thousand cuts.

Favorite Features

All features work as advertised; this car drives effortlessly, with very little body lean, and great ride quality.

Suggested Improvements

The flared out hood in the front can take getting used to when parking; it is wider in front and back than in middle; but getting used to it.
