2012 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)


I am leasing a 2012 SV, with one year left.
I like this car is many ways
- engine power, handling, interior styling and quality, exterior styling.
I'm very happy with my color choice - white exterior w/ rich looking tan leather interior.
I would be hard pressed to find a comparable car with this balance of luxury and performance, at this price point.

Interested to see what the 2015 will look like, as I probably will lease another.
Hope the MSRP doesn't spike!

Best Features

Too many to list. Here's a few. Stylish wheels, rearview camera, Bluetooth, Bose stereo, comfortable seats, decent size trunk.

Worst Features

Fit and Finish: The front fender seams on either side of the hood don't align very well. Probably due to poor design and plastic meeting metal. Color is slightly off on rear plastic areas, probably more noticeable due to white paint finish. Experienced a slight paint chip on the plastic. Performance and ride: Torque steer still needs to be tamed down, as well as road noise.
