2008 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Spent a good month looking for a new car. Looked at various crossovers/SUVs/sedans and ended up on the Maxima due to the screaming deal offered because of the pending all new '09 model release. The premium optioned SE is the way to go, larger wheels, better ride, spoiler, yet still has all of the goodies (leather, heated seats, Bluetooth, XM, etc.). Gas mileage is 22-23 but I have gotten about 26-27 on a 250 mile stretch of highway.

Best Features

Absolutely in love with the CVT. Handling, pretty good power, "generally" comfortable - see below.

Worst Features

My 8s in the ratings above are due to three main issues. At 6'2" the drivers seat doesn't sit far enough back and low enough to the floor. The Bose premium radio has a hissing/static sound at low volumes (I listen to a lot of talk radio). Trunk too small.
