Nissan Maxima, affordable luxury and performance.
I love my 2010 Nissan Maxima, best car I have owned so far. It is fuel efficient without forfeiting too much power. It is equipped with 3. 5l 6cyl engine which is good for 290hp. The 3. 5 sv trim comes with push-to-start ignition, heated leather and a heated steering wheel which is a nice feature, especially if you live in a place with cold winters. It also has iPod integration and you can control the music and volume with the steering wheel mounted controls. It features a large information screen that will display climate, music, maintenance reminders and fuel range/economy as well as a backup camera. The center console opens in two places, providing plenty of storage. The lower compartment contains a USB port which can be used for your iPod or to charge your phone. Unfortunately, there is no way to stream music via Bluetooth in the 2010 model, however, Bluetooth can be utilized for phone calls. Premium fuel is recommended for this vehicle but not required. I have found that the vehicle performs just fine with regular fuel. Maintenance is not expensive as Nissan dealerships would have you believe. I have never paid more than $40 for an oil change. The only really pricey component would be the tires. The vehicle has 19" rims and thus requires a special type of tire. You'll spend $1, 000/set for higher end tires and $600-700/set for lower end. Other than the pricey tires and not being able to stream Audio via Bluetooth, I wouldn't change a thing about the 2010 Nissan Maxima.
