I have had my Maxima for a couple months and love it. I have had it on short trips and 3 plus hour drives. The comfort is a welcome relief..even after 3 hrs I am not miserable and back does not hurt. I average 26mpg hwy and city driving, If I had to complain about anything it would be that there is not an audio warning on the back up camera. This car drives like a more expensive make. Friends cannot believe that it was under 35K.
Simply put, the car does a lot of things well. The interior is as well designed and rich as any car out there in it's price range. The exterior, although showing it's age, still has a stylish and sporty masculine look about it. The care handles well, the suspension is firm but not too stiff, and the car accelerates well with plenty of power. I had leased a '12, just turned it in early, and now lease a '14. As I stated, it just does so many things well.
I have about a 1k on the car and it handles, accelerates, brakes and looks great. Its 2017 SR and the suspension is stiff. The interior is clean and modern but the Vinyl seats were stitched wrong (front driver left), (rear driver and passenger seat backs), (rear driver side passenger seat back) and Nissan wont fix it under warranty. They call it minor defects that are not covered under warranty. lets just say Nissan doesn't want to take responsibility for their crappy workmanship. The fit and finish of the seats is mediocre. The car was basically not detailed on delivery and I later noticed it was damaged (Steering wheel was torn, the back passenger door had a deep scratch and the dealer damaged my right front wheel in service. They wouldn't repair any of this at the dealer i bought it from. EXTON NISSAN is garbage. Check your Maxima or any brand new nissan over with a fine tooth comb IN DAY LIGHT before you sign the paperwork. They love to sell and deliver at night so they can shove you off and not take responsibility for damage or issues. 2011 Max issues, 2014 max issues, 2017 max issues. They wont help you if you find something wrong later or they will make it difficult for you to the point where its not worth going back. No more Nissan's, the company blows at sales and service and I just read an article that they are overworking factory employees and screwing people out of overtime and benefits. No wonder the car comes screwed up.
I have had my car a year. Averages about 29mpg on hwy. 24 in town. Great handling and acceleration. Back seat cramped. Not thrill with ease of navigation. Wish phone had better interaction. Like the sunroof and rear shade.
