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


Review

I bought this Maxima brand new. It was my 4th maxima and because I was so impressed with previous models I didn't hesitate to upgrade. Big Mistake ! My 2003 model gave me no problems at all. I should have kept it instead of trading it in. Since my purchase in 2007 i have replaced the battery, the CVT, and wheel bearings. It surprises me to see how many other people were experiencing the same issues I am. My struts are making noise but Nissan won't replace them until they get worse. I hear some rattling in the engine that the technician says he can't hear. I thought it was the mechanics but maybe it is just the car falling apart and they are used to it. The car shakes at high speeds also.


Best Features

I have all the bells and whistles that are a pleasure to have such as GPS, heated steering wheel and seats.

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


Review

Well, this car is a good car. Two years and 60,000 miles later I can say this is a pretty sturdy car. If you're expecting BMW/Benz/Infiniti quality then you'll be disappointed. This is one of the best cars one the more affordable side of the pocket. Pros: A lot of power, easy maintenance (oil change and big services). I enjoy the IntelliKey system. The turn illumination is also really nice. Cons: To experience the power is lose a lot of gas. The build seems flimsy (but is still deceptively sturdy). The car gets the job done and is a nicer way to get from point A to point B than many alternative.


Best Features

IntelliKey Turn illumination CVT Transmission

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


Review

I bought this car new in 2006. With more than 75k on the odometer, I have no complaints about the car. I have driven it several times across country in the seat for 16 hours. Driver fatigue was low and comfort was excellent even for that long. Some other reviews I have read complain about gas mileage, premium gas required, gas tank size etc. Not to sure if they did their research but these aren't flaws. It's like complaining that a Corvette has too much power. Do you research because this isn't an "economy car" its a sport sedan. 28 MPG on the highway and 21 mixed which ain't too bad. If you bought this car used and complain about reliability, it was abused.


Best Features

comfort, speed, reliability


Worst Features

The shift bezel reflects sunlight in my eyes.

Review

I got my Maxima new in 2006. I have never been disappointed in it. So far Ive been impressed with the power, comfort and agility. At 75,000 miles I just replaced the struts and shocks. Other than that, everything has been reliable and safe. This car should be reviewed for what it is, and not what one wishes they had bought instead. Complaining that the gas tank is too large or that you have to use premium gas arent complaints. That's like complaining a Corvette has too much power. Cant go wrong buying this car. Nissan just extended the warranty on their transmission to 10 years/100,000 miles. I wouldn't buy this car from a second party though since they are often abused as street racers.


Best Features

Power, ride, comfortable seats. I drove this car several times across country with no soreness or driver fatigue as with other cars like Accord, Camry etc.


Worst Features

None.

Review

I bought it in July 2010 as I thought was an upgrade from my 1998 dodge stratus. The first mistake I made was when I test drove it; I loved the ride of it and the smoothness of the CVT transmission, but little did I know that that is pretty much the only good thing about this car. I thought I did my homework on it but apparently not. I should've read the reviews on this site from people because the people giving it bad reviews are spot on. I waited 8 years to get a new car and I ended up getting totally let down. I immediately regret my decision.


Best Features

The sporty exterior, nice looking interior, and the smoothness of the ride.


Worst Features

Better FUEL EFFICIENCY, 28 mpg yeah right more like 20, cheap leather, crappy turning radius, the Bose system is weak, doors close very cheaply. All in all the car is way over priced for what you get; I should've kept looking. Oh well, now I'm stuck with a below average car and a $15,000 loan..FML!
