2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

You should be able to get 6 to 7K off MSRP on the 2010 Maxima. I have seen this offered at several different dealers in Central Florida. I just picked up a Sport / Tech ($39080 MSRP) on a lease deal. $0 out of pocket with tax included on a 39-month, 12K per year lease: $450 per month. I know I got an excellent deal because 3 other dealers in the area couldn't do it. Got the crimson black. It is sweet - looks like "black cherry" - appears black but is a deep red when sunlight shines on it. I love the car. I had the previous model and this car is a tremendous upgrade in every respect. The increase in power is substantial and the ride and operation are much smoother.


Best Features

Nav, backup camera, XM Radio, soft leather seats

2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I just picked up my new 2010 Maxima (Blue w/Tan) last night and can't say enough good things about it. This is my third since 2003. The VQ series engine is simply a work of art and mechanical design genius! I traded in a 2005 Acura TL which was an excellent car, but this Maxima beats it and its new model hands down. The value quotient for this vehicle is outstanding! Performance and feature content can't be beat. Reliability of my past two was excellent, no issues! I look forward to a long loving relationship with this third Maxima. By the way, Fox Nissan was outstanding giving me a GREAT deal and excellent delivery experience. NO hassles! Buy a Maxima!


Best Features

Engine, Nav, Interior space, Looks, Bluetooth syncing with addresses, Dual panel moonroof, XM radio, Cooled/Heated Driver seat, Adjustable thigh support for Driver, Heated steering wheel, Rear window shade. Outstanding VALUE!


Worst Features

Cargo Net in trunk, relocate dial for heated/cooled driver seat, wood trim or chrome on dash panel in front of passenger...too large of black plastic area.

2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I was looking for a car with a little glitz and spunk. Very roomy, very comfortable and can get out of the way when needed. Saved $5k over the G37. It may not be a G37, but it's close enough.


Best Features

Interior comfort


Worst Features

Car jumps a little off the line

2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Traded my '09 370Z for the '10 Max SV. Z was a great sports car. The Max is a great 4 dr "sporty" car. Gobs of power instantly ready on command, holds tight in continuous radius corners (once one gets used to front wheel drive), and very comfortable and quiet on long commutes. 3.5 L engine NVH is superior to the 3.7 L, smooth all the way to red line. I enjoy the CVT, and the sport-shift function when I want to set my hair on fire. Discounts Nissan is offering (see Edmund's TMV) make the decision to purchase this car a no-brainer. You can pay more for a TL, TSX, A4, 329, or C- class. But, make sure you can handle the grins of the Max drivers as they dust your overly-expensive anemic ride at will.


Best Features

On demand power. Quiet engine at cruise, roary (but smooth to red line, never grainy) when I put the whip to her. Comfortable interior, nicely finished. CVT facilitates the "luxury drive" experience, and sport mode is a hoot.


Worst Features

Cup holder lid lip interferes with medium and small drinks. Either make the two-cup body (not the tray) wider, or deploy a different mechanism (e.g. rolling and disappearing door) to cover it.
