The 2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE is a high-end mid-sized family sedan with a dash of sporty performance in the form of an independent sports suspension, and 3.5-liter, 265-hp DOHC V6 with 241 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed shiftable automatic is standard and a 6-speed manual optional. The family part comes in a roomy interior with split-folding rear seats and a 15 cubic foot trunk. Six airbags (dual front, side, and rear side), traction control, front and rear stabilizer bars, 18-inch alloy wheels, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and 4-wheel ABS are all standard. Xenon headlights, stability control, and auto-dimming exterior mirrors can be added.
Luxury is not skimped on in the 2006 Maxima 3.5 SE, with a power driver's seat, full power features, automatic climate control, a CD player, a sunroof, leather trim, wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, intermittent wipers, and a trunk pass-through armrest in the back seat. New lighted steering wheel controls are standard this year. The 2005 Maxima 3.5 SE can be outfitted with many options, including heated seats, mirrors, and steering wheel, a rear spoiler, a power passenger seat, memory settings, a navigation system, and new Bluetooth and satellite radio. Performance, power, and a sporty ride are big draws for owners of the 2006 Maxima 3.5 SE, who also like the interior space and sound system. The wide turning ratio is a common complaint, but owners also mention the fuel economy (21/27 mpg), inadequate tires, and some rattling.

It's easier to ask what's not included with the 2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SL than what is. The luxury mid-sized sedan is packed with features and gets new illuminated steering wheel controls this year. A 265-hp, 24-valve, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 sits under the hood, paired with a 5-speed shiftable automatic, for around 20/28 mpg. Traction control, 4-wheel ABS, dual front-side and rear side airbags, xenon headlights, foglights, 17-inch alloy wheels, self-leveling headlights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are standard. Auto-dimming exterior mirrors and stability control are optional.
The 2006 Maxima 3.5 SL also comes with full power features, power front seats, leather upholstery and leather trim, a compass, a trip computer, a sunroof, power outlets, split-folding rear seats and a trunk pass-through, automatic climate control, heated seats and mirrors, a CD changer with music data, and wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. If you need more, available options on the 2006 Maxima 3.5 SL include retractable mirrors, navigation system, memory settings, heated rear seats and steering wheel, and new Bluetooth and satellite radio. A common complaint on all Maximas is the wide turning radius, and some owners mention early paint chipping. But the engine power and pickup is exceptional, and the interior roomy comfortable for four passengers.
