I test drove 11 different cars while looking for a car and the Maxima stood out above all others. Thia car has the perfect amount of trunk space for my photography gear and comfortably seats 4 people. The features such as the paddle shifters, premium seats, heated steering wheel and seats all make this car a great value compared to similarly equipped vehicles such as the Lexus IS250, Audi A4 and Hyundai Genesis and Honda Accord Sport. The Maxima falls in the middle as far as gas mileage but when you look at the power output and performance it ends up being a fair trade off.
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.
2010 Nissan MaximaJames - Kennesaw, GA04/04/2015
The Maxima SV is very nice inside and out and offers tech that is well above what people think when they buy a Nissan. This flagship sedan offers an awesome motor (3.5L v6/290hp) that has enough power to make it a blast to drive while also being fuel efficient. The ride is smooth and the handling is great. All around love my Maxima.
