Not as good as you'd think
By Tombo123 on


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


Wind noise, streaking wipers, creaking/binding sounds, headlight misalignment, right rear seat continually falls forward even though it's locked, air entering passenger compartment from somewhere up front, left front door handle had to be replaced as FOB signal failed, poor AM radio reception. Only item dealership repaired satisfactorily was the door handle. Averaging 14 mpg yet I travel on hwys 80% of the time. Our Altima was far superior MPG wise. CVT grinds between 30 & 40 mph.

Best Features

Hands-free telephone (Bluetooth) and entering vehicle does not require either a key or FOB in your hand. Excellent DOLBY sound. 17" tires a plus. Superb power, great styling, holds road great, Bluetooth excellent, Homelink vastly improved.

Worst Features

Improve mfg quality and service quality.
