2011 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


The short list was between Genesys V6, Infinity G37 and the Maxima.
The $ value proposition favored the Maxima hands down and the test drives sealed the deal. Perf & Tech packages were added as I wanted all the bells & whistles.

My three month ownership experience vs. expectation align well. The V6 is more than enough @ 290hp with a responsive power train. The suspension is smooth without being cushy. The interior while below the Infinity does not leave one lacking. Visibility & ride quality are tops. Driving this car is pure fun. Thanks to the DVD tool grasping the all the technology was simplified. Premium Fuel is a downer and something Nissan should address especially @ 26 mph highway

Best Features

Favorite Features: 1. Ipod linkage, Sat Radio on a BOSE sound system! 2. Instramentation layout and steering wheel access to options is as good as any I have seen 3. Quality of upgraded leather seating and comfort settings are tops. Looking forward to trying driver seat cooling option next summer. 4. CVT transmission is flawless-- so far 5. Double moon roof---a total surprise on how it enhances the cabin & driving experience 6. The keyless entry is growing on me 7. Touch screen size and clarity makes use of Navig. and Entertainment options that much easier. 8. Interior leg room-- front and back

Worst Features

Suggested Improvements 1. Better Mileage efficiency and avoid need for Premium Fuel 2. Interior can be a bit noisy-- don't need to hear engine to appreciate performance & responsiveness 3. Better seat belt retraction 4. Improve trunk base finish under carpet-- and add a full size spare tire
