Good, not great
By Good Car on


2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6M)


Put 33k on my 2006 Maxima in 14 months and it is a decent car. Good performance, nice to look at, good highway mileage, stereo and bluetooth are excellent, and it's a big car. However, I've had the brakes done twice (11k and 26k), The lumbar in the seat broke, 2nd gear a little notchy when cold, and AC stopped blowing real cold air and dealership says it's fine. Couple of annoying rattles in dash. My biggest complaint is seat comfort. No lumbar or upper back support compared to other "Sport" sedans. I drive 30k miles per year at least and my back is broke after a 300 mile drive. Back was never sore in my 2004 acura TL. So... going back to Acura or step-up to lexus/infiniti.

Best Features

Engine, looks, bluetooth, heated steering wheel, 500+ mile range on highway.

Worst Features

Better seats, better suspension, brakes, brakes, brakes!!
