A Second Look


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


I have had this car now for over 3 months. The car before was a 04SL which lets me compare the two. These two cars ARE different in most ways. For a $30K + car it still needs much improvement in ride and needs more sound proofing. It is however much better than the 04SL. The handling is much improved. BEWARE of the SHIMMY, this has been a problem in the 04/05/06's and now the 07's. When you test drive your car pay attention to the speed of 50-65. IT CANT BE FIXED ! When I took my car in to have it corrected, which wasnt, I test drove another 07SL and it too had the shimmy. You have been warned. The only other problem that I have is the drivers seat moves when turning. To be fixed ?

Best Features

It is a very good looking car and hard to not like it. I did buy another one !! The seats are better but not $30K class. The CVT IS VERY NICE ! The backup radar . The design over previous MAX's. Probably the best engine on the market !

Worst Features

Once and for all get rid of the SHIMMY ! This not a dealer issue, it is a Nissan issue. You know about it, fix it ! Put $30K class seats in the car. Find out who makes seats for Lexus and use them ..
