2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Owned 1992 SE, bought new, drove it 120k miles-no trouble great car. Next came 1999 528i, bought new in 2000, drove 135k miles...spent way too much in repairs and maintenance-tired of getting robbed by the dealers.
Love the new body style of 2009 Max...bought new in Jan 09. Tested A4, ES350,G35x, Acura TL. Nothing close. This car will crush the 528 anyday. I have almost 80k miles now-only investment has been gas, oil changes, one set of tires all around and front brake pads only-everything else still original and looks great (yes garaged). The cost of ownership has been incredible. Yes I will get another Max.
Crazy horsepower...just hit the pedal. Heated steering wheel, power rear sunshade, heated and cooled driver seat, heated passenger seat. decent leather. cool dual power sunroof. dual exhaust ports.
Make this car available with a stick, AWD, and stiffer suspension and watchout nameplates-you will lose huge marketshare.
