2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
Having owned this car for a while now, I have to say that is still blows me away.
It really has excellent power, on par with my tweaked 320HP Subaru Legacy GT I once owned.
Gas mileage is averaging 25mpg in mixed driving, but have seen as high as 28mpg in heavy highway stints which is very good for a nearly 300hp V6.
With the sport package the car handles very well with little body roll while still being comfortable.
Interior is on par with entry level luxury model like the Infinity G37 and Lexus IS.
Ride is quiet making it easy to converse with passengers or to hear audio details in the rather good Bose Stereo.
Car is very handsome looking and muscular without looking overdone.
Powerful V6 - that sounds great
Gas Mileage if you respect the gas pedal
Comfortable and well designed interior
Great sounding Bose sound
Exterior is not boring
Fun to drive!
Pricing should be slightly lower
Sport package should lower stance more, it has to much wheel/fender gap.
Touch screen should be standard
