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


Bought car new in '05, SE model. 5 sp. Auto-completely loaded. 4 Yrs later now I have 50k miles. Right off the top I have to say the acceleration is very impressive-WOW! Starts strong off the line and keeps pulling & pulling & pulling. Great Torque, & little torque steer. A couple things though. I have the sun roof in it and it developed some squeaks after about 4 mos; took into the dealer 4X, they never could figure it out. They thought it was the headliner and installed a new one but still has the squeaks, I am certain its the sunroof. Finally gave up on that. Has 18" wheels, handles wonderful, All power equipment still working fine. Has developed a couple other squeaks-annoying.

Best Features

1.Acceleration & passing capability - absolutely impeccable. 2.Mileage - I get consistent 25 mpg 3.Front/Rear seat room - alot. 4.Engine is strong & reliable. Nissan has used this same motor now for many years. 5. Regarding Improvements, see below: I am 50 yrs. old now & have had many vehicles.
