The ride, just feels solid.

Better gas mileage.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I have 8k miles on my SE and though it took some time to bond with it, I truly enjoy driving it. Once you accept this is a fwd car (and will never handle like a rwd car) it's probably one of the better handling large fwd cars out there, especially under $40k. Suspension is tight in the corners and smooth on the straights. 3.5L engine provides fantastic performance but could easily be higher if Nissan didn't have to worry about competing with their Infiniti line. CVT (continuously variable transmission) is quite remarkable. Feels like it always gears the vehicle down for better performance, especially at higher speeds. 50 to 100 mph feels more like 350hp with the CVT. A special ride indeed.


Best Features

Plenty: CVT, 3.5L, 18" chrome wheels, the bluetooth is awesome, sloping rear roofline, dual exhaust look, back-up sensors, Bose with aux jack for iPod, homelink, sunglass holder, fold-in side mirrors that will pan down when car is shifted in reverse, rear spoiler is just right, smart key is nice.


Worst Features

RWD plus another 50 HP, but then I guess you would call it an Infiniti. Too much power and torque for a fwd as the vehicle vibrates off the line under brisk acceleration. Lg turning radius. Grille looks too much like an Altima. Gas mileage is down a few MPG with the CVT over the old tranny.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I traded in an 02 Nissan Altima for the Maxima. I absolutely love it! It's very stylish and fun to drive.


Best Features

Keyless entry, Bose stereo, auxillary feature on the stereo, heated steering wheel and seats, memory seating, rear sonar, etc. The list goes on and on.


Worst Features

Wish the doors locked automatically.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I traded a 2005 Maxima for a 2007 Maxima. The fuel economy was rated the same so I didn't think anything about the CVT affecting it. However this 07 Maxima operates at 25% higher RPMs than my 2005 Maxima did. It also gets 25% less MPG than my 2005 Maxima did. Traveling on the interstate at 70MPH, I get about 23MPG and the RPMs are turning at 2500. In town driving yields gas mileage similar to my V8 full-time 4WD vehicle. Tried consumer affairs to see if this was something that should happen and they were of no help at all. Received a form response that didn't even attempt to answer my question. Also, the CVT is not nearly as responsive as the old transmission.


Best Features

Appearance and style.


Worst Features

Get rid of the CVT until fuel economy can be improved and it can be more responsive. This was a step backwards not forward.

2007 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

There hasn't been any other car out there that has caught my eye until now! I saw this car at a glance when they first came out and had to have it. It's super quick and so comfortable for long trips, everyone has ample space. Trunk is great for shopping excursions. Nice feature, keyless, don't have to have keys in your hand to open any of the doors or trunk. Headlights you can see superclear on dark highways.


Best Features

Bluetooth, Bose, Keyless, upgraded spare tire.


Worst Features

None, like it a lot.
