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


Compared to my 2000 Maxima, they fixed the turning radius. The view over the hood is spectacular and the side mirror view is sweet. The acceleration with the CVT is awesome. The transmission is always running in the sweet spot. No engine torque in the steering wheel. The seats fit my 6 foot 3 inch frame and they're heated/cooled for the driver. The iPod interface is perfect, streaming audio or plug into USB to view my music on the NAV display, which also plays DVDs in park mode. On hilly roads, the paddle shifters come in handy for engine braking. I have the Premium addition which is a good balance of sporty feel with comfort every day driving. Nissan hit a home run with this model.

Best Features

Favorite Features: iPod interface, power tilt/telescopic steering, heated steering wheel, firm ride, comfortable seats, streaming audio, music box, and the smooth CVT.

Worst Features

Improvements: Tilt steering hides gauges in my sweet spot. Outside temp and compass in more convenient place regardless NAV option or not. Cooled seat for passenger. AutoDim on passenger mirror. More control over musicbox with MP3 music.
