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


I have owned a 2005 Maxima, which was totaled early this year and now a 2008 Maxima. This car is really a considerable car to purchase. The comfort and performance stands out in 2008 Maxima. There are too many car buyers down-playing the CVT engine. People have been use to the engine shifting over 50 years of cars. This Maxima with CVT has no shift shock. So it's nice and smooth driving. 0-60 in 6 seconds and I able to pull a track time of 14.8 1/4 mile in 75 degree weather. With my 05 Maxima, I put on 35K miles and had NO problems with the engine. Now with this new 2008 Maxima, I have 5K miles and still no problems. This 08 SL is worth what I spent and I highly recommend it.

Best Features

Lowjack security, nitrogen filled tires, tire pressure sensors, 4300k HID headlights, rear sensory package, automatic folding side mirrors, stereo auxiliary input, keyless entry and start, power sunroof, memory set steering wheel and driver seat, XM radio, auto dimming mirrors.

Worst Features

Lowering springs. The front and back suspension springs are a little high. Look at the tire and side fender, big wheel gap. Get Progress or Eibach springs and it will improve turning speed and looks better on your Maxima.
