Awesome Car With Little Regret — Just a great car. The Maxima has masculine styling with an engine to back it up. Great car! We love the ability to get up to insterstate speeds quickly and without hesitation from the tranny. The CVT takes some getting used to, but overall it is a pleasant driving experience.

Great Dependable Car — I love the room this car has to offer and the dependability of knowing it is safe to drive me and my family around in. It looks and drives just like an expensive luxury car. Clean interior and exterior, just as if it were bought brand new right off of the lot for the first time.

Jealous??? — Looks sweet, and with the acceleration and handling it make for a sweet ride. It also has all the bells and whistles you could ask for. The 19" factory rims are sweet, and the beefed up suspension let you really move around the corners. The best part might be all the looks you get just driving around passing everyone else.

Nissan Maxima 2009 Sv — This car amazing the smoothest ride ever!! It was 290 horses and its smooth, not too agressive but still fast. The cars appearace is amazing, it's a beautiful car. It has super agressive line on the exterior, the car is like the big brother to the 370z. The transmission is awesome on this car even at 80 mph the car revs at about 1750 rpms so its overall a bad ass car

Great Car For Any Situation — I bought one used and it is a great car to own. Superior build quality, tons of features and great to look at. Around town its a great family car then when driven hard it turns into a 4 door sports car.

Maxim — Fair performance for a luxury sedan. Build quality is solid and the interior is spacious and comfortable. Gets a good 400 kms on a tamk in the city and is total bliss to drive. Dont mind the looks either. Overall very pleased.

Love It!!!! — Handels great drives fast. Only repairs I have done on the car is i had to replace a cracked windshield from a rock on the road hitting it. Looks great inside and out has custome 2 tone leather and heated seats AMAZING in the winter time! Gas Milage isnt bad depending on how fast you drive. I only put the very expensive oil in my car so maintenance for me has been a little more expensive than it needed to be. and the fun factor is how fast it can go with little effort, however that can sometimes get me in a little trouble! ;)

Awesome — Best drive ever driven. Such a comfortable drive and quicker than most people would think for such a big car. The interior is very nice although i didnt not get the leather im happy with the decision i have made.

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