2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Had my Maxima for a year now. Owned a 2000 GLE prior to my 2009. The body style is one of the coolest cars on the road. I get compliments on a weekly basis. Got the sport package, 19'' rims, enjoy the XM radio. I had to buy the SV in order to get the XM so with the sport package that put me me up in the $33k range which is a lot for this car. What happened to the wood paneling? I've seen 97' Maxima's with wood grain and my $33k 2009 doesn't have it???? It lacks the true luxury feel without it. Had to replace a fuel pump in first 6 months but other than that the car has been reliable. The trunk is extremely heavy, turning radius is poor but it handles great! Overall I like the car
290HP, this car can get off the line! Great look, nice lines, 19'' rims, very sporting look for a 4 door, upgraded leather package is nice, best feature is the keyless button on the driver and passenger doors. Great when carrying groceries.
when I mash the gas the car gets out of control and has to regain itself. The trunk is extremely heavy compared to my 2000 Max. When the car turns off you can here a lot of crackling under the hood like its been pushed too hard. Requires premium fuel
