Worth Every Penny — This car is a dream to drive and own. The pick up is amazing and the car feels very solid. Passing is effortless and the ride is silk smooth. The looks is very subjective, either you love it or you don't. It happens that I love it and feel that the design is right on. Interior amenities are endless. W#hat I love is the heated steering wheel, in winter its a finger saver. Interior is wrapped in leather and very opulent. Motor is silku smooth albeit it displays a slight hesitation when you lead foot it. This car is a luxury vehicle and wil perform as such and is very solid on the highway. Particular mention goes to the sound system and the Automatic climate control which will keep the temperature to your absolute liking. In short.... I love my Maxima and would readily buy another one.

Pros

Awesome, powerful, good handling, has balls, beautifully designed interior as well as exterior.

Cons

Needs a bit more space and could use less noise from the engine.

The Maxima — This car is awesome...handles cornering like its nothing. Its got balls too. Its ergonomically designed excellently. The controls are as should be for the driver. Chairs are comfortable but not enough leg room. The trunk is cavernous for cargo carrying. The sound system totally kicks booty on it. Its a great car.

Fun With A Nissan. — Fun to drive for a front wheel drive car. The engine rewards you when you hit the gas! The 2008 Nissan Maxima is a four door, FWD 350Z! Mods are coming in the next three years! Exhaust, Brake Up grade and more!

Love This Car! — Love, love, love the car. It's beautiful and sleek. It drives like floating on a cloud. The Maxima is smooth, comfortable and responsive. When I ask for more power it steps up immediately. This is my third Nissan -- second Maxima. It never goes out of style.

Pros

Quick car with power

Cons

lots of gas, you can only make 30 degree turns

35

Amazing — Fast, brakes hold hard or soft depending on how your driving. Handles perfect. a few problems is the motor. after about 50K miles, youll need to let the car warm up because you hear chain rattleing when the oil is on the bottom. you can get one for around $18,000-$22,000
