Would you recommend this vehicle?

The fact that this car can charge devices while completely shut off is amazing.

This vehicle has no problems whatsoever. I've maintained it very well since I am an auto technician and it never has had any problems. It handles great, especially for a car with 120,000 miles on it. Although I need to replace the front end shocks and struts, I can solve that as soon as I get enough money. This Nissan maxima is amazingly quick, especially for a car with such a large cab and all. It is actually great on gas mileage as well, however when it is in sports mode it definitely is not quite as efficient. Overall I would say that this vehicle is the perfect combination of speed, luxury, innovation (although it can only connect through Bluetooth for calls), and practicality. It has lots of room and makes a great family car and its swell as a fabulous method of everyday commutes to work. The Bose sound system that comes stock is my favorite feature along with the fact that it can charge devices when it's completely shut off, which is incredibly convenient. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone, it is an all around fantastic vehicle.

2011 Nissan maxima the affordable race car with the drop top feel.

This car has some serious power for not being modified. It's very reliable and comfortable. My favorite feature is the panoramic sunroof. Gas mileage is a little above average and with 200k plus miles it still runs excellent. I've owned a few maximas, they are solid dependable cars and they also look super stylish. The stock exhaust sounds like a mini race car..I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an affordable sporty car, that's also comfortable for the family. Only downside is it takes lots of extra tools to work on so unless you have a shop and plenty of knowledge it's not easy to work on besides minor replacements.

Pearl white 2011 Nissan Maxima with the most comfortable microfiber seats

My Nissan Maxima has been phenomenal. The interior base is of a black soft microfiber super durable and comfortable for myself and two boys age 6 and 7. The trunk space fits all groceries, sport items and beach items in perfect. The engine is perfect it idles fantastic I get about 20 mpg highway and 18 city. Takes around 48 bucks to fill up and I drive her weekly around 15 miles per day and only fill up once every week and a half. I love my maxima for anyone who likes a sedan for comfort, nice gas mileage and durability purchase the maxima!
