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


I bought my jet black Maxima Sport Edition on Xmas Eve 2008. I had narrowed it down to the Maxima, an Acura TL, or a BMW 128. The Maxima proved to be the best value, while probably not the top quality, but there is a lot to be said for value. If you're into Technology Packages, the Acura is the way to go as the Maxima Voice Recognition is nearly useless. It will turn things on and off, but not make adjustments, such as temperature control. The Acura excels here. But it's about the ride and comfort! And the Maxima offeres gobs of both, along with exhilarating performance and great gas mileage (23 in town, 28+ on the road) The CVT is admirable and fun. And the Max has looks to die for

Best Features

Driveability, performance, looks, comfort, gas mileage, looks, GPS, sound system, did I say looks??? This car is a great value... lots of bang for the buck. I get compliments all the time! Paddle shifters work great with the CVT.

Worst Features

Please improve the voice recognition system!! Go study the Acura. This is really the only drawback I have found in this vehicle.
