2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

I traded an '06 Maxima SE for the '11 S. I love the styling, inside and out. Very classy in black. Power is great, although there is some torque steer. Comfort is great, and the inside controls are much more user friendly than on the '06. Trunk space is less, which could be an issue. The radio is much better quality than the '06. It's fun to drive, and it handles well. Now for what I don't like. Under heavy acceleration the engine is very noisy, almost irritatingly so. Also, there is significant wind noise starting about 40 mph on up. The ride isn't as smooth as my '06 either. Maybe it's the Goodyear Eagles---my other one had Bridgestones. On windy days, the car is buffeted.

Favorite Features

Power, handling, interior and exterior appearance, design of controls.

Suggested Improvements

Reduce wind noise, reduce engine roaring on heavy acceleration, smooth ride a tad.
