Very nice luxiourious car with a few quirks
"This car drives great, feels smooth and comfortable on the road. The CVT transmission is a little quirky around town. It hums or whines a little and often feels like it is not quite in the right gear around town. On the highway, this car really shows it's stuff. I am not a crazy person but this thing cruises at 90 just as well as it cruises at 60 mph. It is smooth! The MPG is not wonderful at around 26 combined but the ride is worth it. I only run mid grade gas in the car and it does just fine. bottom line, buy it if you can get a good deal on a used one. One other issue is that it is somewhat expensive to insure so check on that before you buy."

"I bought this car for the sleek style, amenities, and room!! I have owned it for 6 months and I am still absolutely in love with it. Heating and cooling seats, heated steering wheel, nav, back up camera, retracting window screen in rear, double sun roof...it's just amazing"

"Bought the Maxima based on friends and relatives that have a Nissan and have had great success. My wife drives to work daily. Just drove it from Denver, Co to SW Missouri. Rides well, performs very well. We both commented that it is a nice travelling car. Gas mileage could be better, but we knew this and it wasn't terrible for the size car it is. Got 26.3 on the highway on long trip."

"This was supposed to be a sporty looking car that got great gas mileage for frequent travel. However Nissan has continued down their path of horrible implementation of the CVT in this model year, however without the extended warranty of the previous flawed generation. Nissan further screws over the consumer by making the CVT replacement a whole unit replacement only able to be purchased through Nissan. Replacement quotes have ranged from $3800 to $4500, for a CVT that had 86k miles. Never buying a Nissan again and looking to unload this hunk of junk asap."
