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


Actually a great car, EXCEPT it just quit in the middle of a parkway, battery light came on and car stopped. Towed to dealer, can't find anything,replaced battery. Two days later car quits again, this time a referburshed alternator put on, (note 8K miles on a 2009), also replaced wiring harness for alternator with after market, not listed on repair order because they purchased seperately, to wait for a new one from Nissan would take 3 days, THEY didn't want to wait, not me! Now I'm driving a car with 8K and a used alternator and who knows wiring harness, Still no answer on why the alternator went out and the harness burned!!I should have my head examined!!

Best Features

Bluetooth, Seat a/c,paddle shifters,XM radio,handling all around

Worst Features

More head room for driver,put shift lever on dash and move console forward, it is too far back to open comfortably
