Maxima Mania — This is a powerful, great handling car that has always been a joy to drive. It has the power to fight traffic and handling to tame any curves thrown at it. The seats are comfortable and make long rides more enjoyable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Exciting to drive , great response with correct tires, and ride is so smooth it feels like you are on air,I have Continental Extreme contact DWS, Fantastic tires.

Cons

I have noticed a huge drop in my mileage since i crossed the 100,000 mile mark, the brake pads wear out fast, Use premium fuel only it really makes a difference, and the stupid window on roof that doesn't open i hate it!!!

Its Been Tested And Tried True By Me, Nissan Makes A Great Car, And Their Suv's Are Nice. — Car performs great its got enough power to accelerate to highway speed within seconds.Takes corners like a dream with the 18"s on it. Haven't put any mods into it and now have like over 110,000 miles and been in probably 7 accidents but it runs like a champ!The Paint wears quick and the chrome finish dulls after months, interior is roomy and comfortably seats 5. Gotta maintenance it a lot in Maine pretty cheap.Dont get good city miles but on hwy. I get probably 480 miles to tank. The car is fun as hell to drive for a full size 4 door sedan!!!Wish I also owned a GT-R , I'd settle for a nice G7 though by Infiniti.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
