2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Traded 05 Maxima SE for 09 with Sport pkg. Difference is night and day. 09 is a dream come true. Great handling, interior, design and gas mileage to boot. If they made this in a convertible, might consider trading in 02 Vet roadster. Hardest decision was which package to purchase. Utilized on extended trip, shortly after purchase. At highway traffic speeds, gas mileage was unbelievable, great on the open road and got lots of rave comments on design throughout the southwest US. Since return, seen avg gas mileage of 25, in town. Handled well in first snow of season.
Handling and mileage. Shortly after purchase, took 42K mile trip. avg. 30+ thru various terrains. Somewhere in Utah, an 09 Vet owner is wondering why he couldn't get around this vehicle thru the esses. Lots of positive comments on design and interior
Return fold down rear seat Interior spacing needs to be about 2" wider in front between seats and console
