2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
This is one heck of an automobile. I purchased an 09 Maxima in May of 09 and put 18,000 miles on it in 6 months (all pleasure). My ego & love for this automobile got the best of me so I purchased a new 2010 Maxima equipped the same way (Nav & Sport pkg.)and even maintained the same white color. The performance is fantastic and despite other comments, I love the CVT. Boy!! It is smooth. The engine has just enough growl and fuel mileage is acceptable considering what you are driving.(22/23 overall) Based upon my experience with a 2009 Murano dual moonroof, I do not recommend the premium package (dual moonroof) until Nissan is able to develop a moonroof wind deflector. Too much wind noise.
Engine, CVT, Navigation, Styling, Performance.
AWD would make this a perfect automobile. I also suggest eliminating vehicles equipped with summer tires that a shipped to all areas that receive any snow & ice. If equipped, plan to purchase specific snow tires or a good all season tire.(limited choices on the 19 inch and very expensive)
