2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Leased mine in May. After doing extensive research I came to the conclusion that this was the best value for what I wanted: unique body style, performance, luxury, amenities, and decent gas mileage. I have not been disappointed. I love getting into this car every morning and evening. The car is incredibly smooth. Someone once wrote that it drives like a "heavy" car. I know what was meant. It feels solid and heavy. If you ever drove, say a bmw 7 series, when you take your foot off the gas, it seems to coast forever. As this does. My wife loved it so much she got her own about one month after me. So now I have my black and her white max. in the garage. It is a good looking garage.
Appearance, smoothness of the drive, interior, stereo system.
I know I am supposed to nitpik and find something to improve. None. If I was designing and building a car, this is what I would build. OK- I miss the rain sensing windshield wipers my bmw had. One more- no memory seats without upgrading to premium package.
