2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

I was looking for a fun, sporty, pre-driven sedan.
I looked at a number of cars including the Acura TL and Cadillac CTS.
This was a gorgeous car, but after reading the reviews, it appeared that buying it would be like having a beautiful blonde with STD's.
Every review spoke of how often the car was in the shop.
I was done then with the GM flagship.

So I took a trip to the my local Nissan dealer and found the color I wanted.
After 10 minutes of test driving the Maxima, I was hooked.
It was smooth, roomy, powerful, comfrotable, and cornered like it was on rails.
The technology in the premium package was as good as any Lexus or Mercedes.


Best value and best decision I ever made!

Review

I have to tell everyone I'm totally enjoying the ride of the Maxima. When i drive it i feel like I'm in the Bat mobile. the car has great pickup and shift smoothly from one gear to the next. I just traded in my 2001 MAX for this 2009 and I feel like I jump into a time warp the features and style of driving is light years difference.

2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Got 24,500 miles and one front end accident, and car is still kicking. When I bought the car it had the wrong speedometer in it. Got the speedometer swapped after complaining. The car is smoth handles great, and is fast. Still I think it is over priced but no one can tell that mine is not the fully loaded sv model. I got a good deal on it


Best Features

Stiptronic and push button start


Worst Features

option for navigation on Base Model

Review

Has anybody had a problem with the a/c not working while you are driving on a 2009 maxima. It works when the car is at idle but when you start driving it stops working. Had it in 5x to get it fixed and they can't fix it. I am now starting the process to have it come under the lemon law. Nissan said they would not do anything for me except take it back to the dealer to have them look at it again.

Review

I found this car to be the best blend of looks, power, handling, ride, quality and fun-to-drive compared to Lexus 350, Infiniti G-37, BMW 328i and Hyundai Genesis. It is a great value and vastly under-rated in some professional car magazines. CVT transmission, HID headlights and audio system are among the best. (Somewhat taut suspension is fine on most roads but sensitive to poor ones.) I've had it 13 months and no problems at all. Service at two dealers has been fine.


Best Features

Handling, power, CVT transmission, HID headlights, Bose audio system (best of all cars tested), head-turning exterior/interior styling, Z-type steering wheel, comfort, quality. (Nissan extended the transmission warranty to 10 years.)


Worst Features

Gas tank cap is a bit quirky--sometimes difficult to seal.
