2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
With the lease expiring on my 2007 G35x, I replaced it with a new 2010 Maxima SV with Premium and Tech packages. The G was a great car, but, especially given its much lower "real world" lease price, the Maxima is better in every way except for higher speed handling on curvy roads. The Maxima is a smoother, quieter highway cruiser that is just as fast as the G, and has far more luxury features for the money.
V6 engine is strong and quiet. Extra thigh support extender is excellent addition to already comfortable seat. With the Tech package stereo, I don't want to get out of the car.
Move switches for the heated steering wheel and power mirrors from to the left of the dash to a more accessible place. Eliminate the need for premium fuel. Provide a fold-down rear seat in Premium-packaged cars. Add cooling to passenger seat. Consider adding optional AWD.
