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


Having owned numerous performance (sports oriented) vehicles and luxury vehicles, I remain impressed with our new Maxima SE. We have the Driver Preferred Package. The Maxima feels and looks luxurious while driving as a high performance sedan should. Very crisp handling in everyday driving. It compares favorably to the 5 series BMW we had. Its front wheel drive is an advantage in inclement weather. We also had a 2003 Towncar. By comparison, the Maxima has even more luxury and none of the wallowy ride and vague handling. Very good value for the money we spent compared to the Avalon, TL, CTS, etc. we considered.

Best Features

Very smooth transmission. Powerful engine with handling that makes you want to drive it. Good feedback from suspension and steering. Firm ride, no wallowing. Roomy. Good build quality. Luxury appointments such as heated, power telescoping steering wheel works well. Good mileage for its class.

Worst Features

It doesn't need a V8, but a few more horses and ft/lbs. of torque from basically the same V6 Nissan uses in the 350Z and Infiniti would be easy to add. That would make it even more fun without adding weight, throwing off its balanced handling or taking away from its luxury/performance character.
