Looks great but having issues
By steve on


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


I took a march 2006 delivery on this Black with dark grey cloth seats Nissan SE as a commuter and 2nd car. The only options were the mats, spoiler and the sunroof. It has been in the shop 3 times to replace the front right struts (it is now Oct. 06). There is a rattling in the steering that the dealer cannot seem to fix. It is fine for straight highway cruising but forget having fun in the twisties. This car get nervous and sloppy real fast. It's a psuedo sports car. While the exteriror styling is beautiful the body panel are soft and thin. Subject to the slightest dings. With the mecahnical problems and the sloppy handling I can't wait to get rid of it.

Best Features

Very good engine and standard sound system is excellent. Great exterior styling

Worst Features

Tighter suspension. Thicker metal for body panels. Tighter gaps between body panels
