Fun Ride but Painful Seat
By Houston Commuter on


2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I commute over an hour each way every day and liked the performance, mileage and range of this car. It has lots of zip in traffic and motors along at 80 with no problem. The exterior styling is distictive and the interior is big enough for a family of 5 on the rare occasions when the family comes along. My only serious complaint is the width and rigidity of the front bucket seats. I find that the little wings on the side of the seat are rock hard and they are putting my leg to sleep, especially on the right side. The problem didn't show itself until I had been driving for about a month and now I'm regretting the purchase.

Best Features

Peppy engine. Unique styling. True 500 mile highway range.

Worst Features

Bucket seats need to be wider and softer. AM radio sound quality (news radio) is terrible.
