2012 Maxima review
By geo2010maxima on

Vehicle

2012 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)

Review

My comments only apply to the Maxima with the Premium package - totally different car than the base model - upgraded leather, double moon roof, heated/cooled drivers seat, Xenon headlights, driver seat, mirrors and steering wheel memory, power tilt/telescopic and heated steering wheel, reverse tilting/heated side mirrors, rear window sun screen, USB and Ipod connectivity, etc. - it is a front wheel drive Infinity and since we have winter in Oregon, we need FWD. We had a 2010 previously and the 2012 has significantly reduced torque steer and vastly improved low speed transmission performance - they got the CVT dialed in finally. It is a very comfortable road car for long trips also.

Favorite Features

Drivers seat comfort, moon roof, stereo, USB/Ipod connectivity, acceleration, steering, brakes, looks and value. Great ride and very quiet. Nissan discounts sales and leases aggressively on this car so you can get a lot of car for the money. Factory recommends premium fuel, but it runs just fine on the middle grade fuel - Chevron Get 22mpg - city/ freeway combined and 26 MPG on the road

Suggested Improvements

Better OEM tires and higher capacity battery (650) CCA
