Excellent car, excellent value!
By bobafett14 on


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


Only negative is the turning radius.
3 point turns and squeezing around tight spots (i.e. parking lots) can be tricky at times.

Othewise, this is a great car at a great price.
Holds up well, repairs are minimal.
I went with a Nissan Maxima after years ago vowing never to buy chevy after seeing a fleet of salesman (company) cars (1/2 the sales force picked Chevy Mailbu 1/2 picked the Altima, 6 Malibus and 6 Altimas go head to head over a 3 year run).
Basically the Malibu's ALL started shaking, rattling, needed "front end" work..ballbearings needed repaired, brakes/rotors...you name it...all went after about 24K to 26K..the Altimas didn't need any repairs until into thier 30K's.

Best Features

Interior is nice, excellent engine performance, little to no maitenance and repairs needed, and i'm over 50K in miles!

Worst Features

Turning radius.
