2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This car handles well on the road in all types of weather. Both the exterior and interior look nice; the interior has some nice features to it. It has good gas mileage. I get between 25 and 27 miles per gallon when I drive this car. There is plenty of room for items in the trunk, and it has a good size consoul. Overall, this is a nice car for the money.


Best Features

Looks nice, good handling, some nice features, and good price.


Worst Features

Should have an option for a remote start on the vehicle like the satelite radio. Both of these are great to have.

Review

Very disappointed with my first Maxima, expected much more. Quality is lacking. Overall, nice looks, but mediocre performance and rough drivetrain.


Best Features

Exterior Design


Worst Features

reliability needs improvement, intermittent starting problem, jerky transmission, noisy struts, too noisy over sand & salt in winter, too many rattles for a new car, too much torque steer

2005 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Love everything about it. Plenty of pickup from any situation, everyone admires looks, needs better suspension or clearance. If loaded with 4 pax it will bottom out over driveway. Wouldnt stop me from buying it again, just add better shocks.


Best Features

Pickup, smooth shifting, great instruments.


Worst Features

Better shocks or clearance. I bottom out with 4 passengers.
