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


Review

Owned this car for about 2 years now, and have read a lot of reviews to see if anyone else was experiencing the same problems as i was. There is alot of cabin noise especially from the front end, you can feel most of the bumps on the road due to the sporty suspension, have had my batteries changed out twice, air conditioner has gone twice in a year, and other problems that i can't mention because i had to bring my car into the dealership so many times. This car is a really great car, but i just wished that these problems would have never occurred. I have owned a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE before i traded it in for the 07' Maxima SE, and i have never had any problems with the car at all.


Best Features

Love the Precision Gray, Bluetooth is great, Bose sound system is awesome, Premium Chrome Wheels are killer, Great exterior.


Worst Features

Turning Radius, Cabin Noises, better long lasting batteries, Gas Mileage.

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


Review

Had the car for 3 years. Have had 2 batteries die, Sun roof slide switch doesn't work, keyless entry doesn't work, speakers have a short, bluetooth doesn't work and have sun spots on the rear spoiler even though its garaged at home and at work. All problems happened after the 36,000 mile warranty expired. Wont buy another Maxima probably wont buy another Nissan.


Best Features

Interior is roomy. The tight leather wrapped seats are nice (No wrinkles in leather).


Worst Features

Navigation joystick is awful.

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


Review

My Nissan Maxima has had a few issues. The battery died at 21,000 miles. The air conditioning goes on any time I try to change the mode on the heating system. The tires at 26,000 miles have to be replaced. The car does a poor job of handling on snow covered roads and because I live in NE Ohio this has been an issue. My previous car was a Chrysler 300 and I did not have any of these issues and the interior leather was of much better quality.

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


Review

This is a stylish, comfortable car with lots of interior and trunk space. It accommodates the roomy interior needs for a family better than any modern mid-to-full sized sedan in this price range. The maxima successfully combines comfort,sportiness(fun&fast) and luxury. The car corners good & shifts seamlessly on acceleration. EPA estimates (22/28)I have found to be unattainable under normal driving conditions. Reality:20-21 city or hwy. The turn radius makes this car tough to park in congested places. It tends to be very hard on bumps and noisy. I have owned my Maxima 2.5 years and notice the shiny trim around the windshield fading bad (the car is garaged at night).


Best Features

aesthetic appeal,performance,comfort. I enjoy the abundant interior and cargo space. The keyless entry & ignition is a nice convenience. Both the manual shift gate and the unique skyview enhance the sportiness. Overall an awesome car but slightly overpriced (below).


Worst Features

It would help to introduce better quality trim. Some of the moulding is reminiscent of cheap, shoddy stuff made by Chrysler and Ford in the past. This seemingly insignificant detail is hard to ignore because you see it every time you get in the car. Fuel efficiency can be improved.

Review

I bought my '07 Maxima new. Now have 50k miles on it in 2.5 years. Until 3 weeks ago only put oil in it and normal preventative maintenance like rotate tires and check fluids. Recently took it to the purchasing dealership service dept. and they say the CVT transmission is going bad. Luckily it is under warranty. (60k miles) I first noticed a light tapping noise at slow speed coming from the front end. Now three weeks later I am waiting on a new transmission to come in as they do not have re-manufactured ones because they are too new. Still runs, but the tapping noise is irritating. Did not pay the $$ I did to have it go bad. When working fine, the CVT is GREAT. Otherwise, I love the car.


Best Features

CVT - When working right Styling Handling Fit and Finish


Worst Features

Turning circle Brushed aluminum around shifter - Dents too easily and reflect light
