2010 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


See my previous posts for more info under Third Timer. Just want to clarify this car does not require Ester type oil which some dealers are charging over $90 to replace at oil change time. Nissan recommends this type oil, but any synthetic 5W30 oil will suffice. You can also use NON-synthetic oil as long as you change it every 3000 miles. Do not waste your money for $100 oil changes! Ester is a component of synthetic oil formulas, not some mystical oil type only Nissan makes! Don't be fooled! Also, premium gas is recommended but not required! Need a minimum of 87 octane. Reference Nissan Owner Man. I highly recommend this vehicle...a fantastic value!

Best Features

Engine performance, styling like a Jag, dependability, roominess, dual sunroof, nav, Bose stereo, heated & cooled seats, heated steering wheel, NO torque steer like some front wheel drives!

Worst Features

Cover to the cup holder needs to open towards passenger rather than driver, controls for rear shade and heated seats is very difficult to reach when cups are in holders, no accessory mode function when shutting off engine (lose radio reception)
