2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
While waiting for the Maxima's release, drove most all 6 cylinders, including G35, Acura TL, Toyota Avalon, Accord, etc. True sports car enthusiasts may not care for the front wheel drive, but the Maxima handles very well for an entry level luxury sedan with a sporty feel. Performs better and the convenience items are great. Got the SV w/Premium Package -- white w/tan interior. Looks great. Will be back to comment on fuel economy.
Dual sun roof, iPod interface with the monitor, back-up camera, sleek body lines. 290 horses accelerate very smoothly with the CVT. Premium package has very nice leather interior. Surprising room for this 6'1" driver.
Would be nice to have iPod controls at the steering wheel, but this is minor.
