The Nissan Maxima is my favorite car that I have had

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

The Nissan Maxima is a great every day car. The leather seats are comfortable and can be adjusted any way you please. It is sleek and nice looking. The performance is great and I have taken it on many long road trips without a problem. The rear view camera is one of the best features. I can back out if any place with confidence and have improved my reverse skill greatly! My Nissan also has a double sunroof that is a great luxury. I like to open it up on night drives and it helps my son go to sleep to make any drive easier for everyone. The only problem that I have had with this vehicle would be the sunroof. One of the side seals came lose during a drive and the wind cause it to flap around vigorously. A couple of marks were left on the top of the car but I was able to get the seal fixed and have not had any other problems with it. Something that I would like for Nissan to improve on is the ease of being able to put seat covers on. I have a child and with leather seats, I would like added protection. The way the back seat is designed is that it is attached to the car in the sides. This makes it hard to put on standard car seat covers since there is no way to hook them on from the sides. I'm sure I could get a professional to add some but the expense would be too high for me.

Overall amazing, should have more perks even for the base model.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

I love my car, I really do. My main complaint is that back up cameras and navigation didn't come standard on my car. It being a 13 you'd think it would have. I have had one electrical issue with my car after a drink spilled into my shifter. But they set me up for failure with the shifter right next to the cup holder. It's been the most reliable car I have owned so far. It drives amazingly. 70 on the interstate is like riding on air. It has a screen for the radio and ac, which can be deceiving. People always assume I have a backup camera or navigation. It does have some blind spots around the back passenger windows, but not too bad if you are paying attention. It gets up and goes easily. I have performance parts on it, but even before it was quick for a bigger sedan. Power seats/windows/locks, sunroof, CD player, Bluetooth are the main features. It's pretty roomy, though, with a car seat the back seat is cramped for two other people (back seat seats 3). Overall, it's the best car and I'll definitely be looking into a newer one when this one is paid off.

It is very powerful for a v6 with a 3. 5l engine.

2013 Nissan Maxima

Very reliable it does not burn any oil between 7k miles oil changes. Its roomy and it a sport luxury vehicle. Quick take off and very good handling at high speeds. Good on gas for a v6. Also has good traction in snow. Nice 18 to 20 inch rims with low profile tires. Nice surround music system. Drives like a charm even with five people at full capacity. Push to start. It also can detect if there is a passenger in front to shut passenger front airbag off. It also has dual exhaust system. Very roomy trunk space. It also has tire pressure monitoring system.
