If you've ever seen the Nissan commercial where the new dad has to trade in his 370Z sports coupe for a family hauler, but still wants to have fun (spoiler: he gets a Maxima), that commercial really rings true with this car. I, myself, am a recent father (one year now) but I still want to have fun in my suburban street pounder. The Maxima is a great fit for that.
With nearly 300 horsepower under the hood coming from Nissan's highly acclaimed and aggressive sounding VQ35 3.5 liter V6 engine, the car's got more than enough going for it to keep the blood flowing at stoplights. Couple that with a suspension that feels agile and athletic, even in the standard version, and you can't wait for the next family errand in it.
2014 Nissan MaximaBob Wesley - Holly Springs, GA07/24/2016
The Maxima is all things I desire in a car. It is a combination sports car/luxury car, with a smooth ride, crisp handling & powerful acceleration. The fuel economy is also solid as I avg 23-25 MPG in city/suburban driving. The Maxima is very reliable & I would highly recommend it. No buyer remorse here.
-Great vehicle that's great on gas
-Love the Navigation
-Black on black gets dirty fast but looks sharp when cleaned up
-Battery hasn't died yet even in freezing temperatures after not being moved or touched in a month (i was on a trip).
-Not so great on snow, I live in the North Country. Ideally, you would want a truck in this kind of weather
-Smaller body compared to the older models, I had an 07' few years back and I loved the longer, sleeker body
