Great Car with the Sporty Look I Love!

This was the first time that I purchased my Nissan Maxima, I looked at other cars and kept going back to this car because the look and features alone and the engine was well worth it. The car runs very smooth and has great pickup, it's a V6 Engine. I have yet to have any problems with this car..My next car will likely be another Nissan Maxima, I will highly recommend this car to anyone.

Car only had 13k when I got it...I was so excited, especially since it was CarMax "certified", I had piece of mind that it was well taken care of. Unfortunately, it has been one problem after another, non stop...passenger seat stopped working a month after I got it, my charger port doesn't work, my brakes are squeeking, think I need new brakes, my transmission seems to slip,it goes on and on. I wish I could have left a good review, but it has been nothing short of disappointing.

  • Braking: Brakes squeeking

Exhilarating, Spacious, Stylish, Reliable Car

This vehicle drives and handles great. It has a good amount of horsepower and torque available at any second you want it. This ride is comfortable and quiet. The interior and exterior look classy. I have driven the car for 10k now and have enjoyed every second of it. I drive 80 miles a day in about 60% highway and 40% city I average about 24 mpg.
