comfortable ride!
"Love the quick pick up, great gas mileage for a mid sized sedan. This is a comfortable sleek ride with all the options I was looking for with the exception of Bluetooth, however with the Intellivoice installed from Nissan I'm only missing being able to play music from my cell app, however, the way the interior of the Maxima is designed, allowed me to add the Bluetooth upgrade with a nice little cubby spot where it plugs in allowing me access to use easily and the convenience of alternating the setup method as Nissan put an aux port on the stereo, good thinking on their part! Upgrading it was easy...car has ample leg room and for me thats important because I'm tall, also allowing plenty of leg room in the back as well. Overall, I love my Maxima!"

Not crazy about the orange guage lighting wish it was easier to switch out, but like the ample leg room and styling of the leather.

Sleek design, shape of the fenders are slightly extended from the vehicle which I love because you can see the entire car line from your Sideview mirror, eliminating any blind spots altogether.

ample sized interior back and front! Lots of trunk space for cargo.

Priced slightly higher than some mid size,, but if you want the style, the convenience, the name, and the overall performance of the Maxima, you should expect that it will cost you, but it won't break you! Well worth the extra cost!

Not Surprising
"I knew the reputation Maximas had before I purchased mine. So I wasn’t surprised by its luxury and most of all performance. Of all the vehicles I’ve owned previously, SUV’s, trucks, Jeeps, etc. this is the most fun I’ve had driving a vehicle in quite some time. It’s comfortable driving in town or on long trips, gas mileage is very respectable after my lead foot driving. Would be exceptional if I drove like a person my own age. I cannot think of a single negative experience or feature of this vehicle. Zero buyers remorse or regret. "
