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


As an owner of a 1998 Nissan Maxima, I eagerly awaited the release of the re-designed 2009 Maxima. I purchased the SV with Premium & Technology packages. The car handles very well and rides comfortably in spite of the 18" tires. The interior is inviting but has a mix of quality and inferior looking items. The plastic wood trim is somewhat of an eyesore and seems to detract from the numerous plush features. However, all of the other interior details make up for this shortcoming. The engine is very responsive and the CVT is seamless. You can't even feel the car shift!

Best Features

Navigation system, Bluetooth hands-free capability, NavTraffic, Bose sound system, iPod integration, cooled/heated driver's seat, smooth ride, gas mileage (approx. 21 MPG mixed driving).

Worst Features

The microphone for the voice-recognition system picks up too much background noise. The car has to be extremely quiet and even then you still have to raise your voice at times.
