2009 Nissan Maxima

I like the car, you can unlock it with a push of a button on your door when your keys are around and do not need to turn on your car with the keys just sit down and push the brake and button on the right side next to the wheel, but you do still need the keys in the car. The people in the back seats can change the radio from the back and volume. The you can worm up or cool up the seats in the front. When you turn of the car and open the door to get out your seat goes back and your wheel goes up so you can get up just fine, and when you get in your are and turn it on it goes back how you left it. Also it has two sets on how you want your seat to be adjusted if there’s more then one person driving the car. It will tell you how much miles you have left with your gas. The screen it touchscreen, the speakers are amazing. The I my problem I have with them it that for AUX you have to buy a specific cable it is not like the normal AUX cable and for iPod you have to get like to different items for it to actually work for an iPhone 5 and up. I love to put my own music that is why it is a problem to me.

Maxima's are worth the money!

2009 Nissan Maxima

My Maxima is extremely reliable. I have had it for more than 8 years and have only had to make repairs on normal wear and tear it maintenance. It gets good gas mileage and has a larger fuel tank for a sedan. It is very smooth and comfortable to drive. My only concerns are that the undercarriage is very low to the ground (although the driver is not), and the tires are low profile directional and tend to be more expensive. There was a plastic carriage under the engine and main components that quickly broke off partially and had to be removed because it was dragging. I have to be very careful with parking because it is rarely high enough to clear a curb/barrier. The tires have to be ordered and it took quite a while for them to become somewhat affordable. Otherwise my Maxima has been well worth the money!!

a head turner. just looks very sleek and luxurious inside and out. chicks dig my ride. they love my rims on it too. cool auxillary plugs and bluetooth. double moonroof is so cool. even the rear windshield has a screen that can rise up in the back for more privacy. very fast acceleration even if you switch it to manual drive which is available.

2009 Nissan Maxima

2009 Nissan Maxima. Black. Black leather interior. very loud stereo system. double moon roof.. so awesome. sunroof. seat warmers and seat coolers. very cold ac. great horsepower. great gas mileage for a v6 engine. i put 22 inch chrome rims on it. new shocks and all new front end suspension parts. runs even stronger and straighter. engine can be modified with cold air intake for more horsepower as well as intake manifold can be modified for more speed. i always get compliments on my vehicle from strangers. easy to change the oil and transmission fluids myself to save money. very bright headlights. a fun easy car to drive.
