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.

My 2013 Nissan Maxima has athletic handling and a strong V6 engine performance.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

I love my 2013 Nissan Maxima, I have purchased my vehicle in 2016 and so far no issues. I would definitely recommend others who are looking for a vehicle that has the best handling and suspension a front wheel drive vehicle has to offer. The only drawback is the car is bad as far as gas mileage goes and it's not good in the snow when the weather gets bad.

2013 Nissan Maxima Family Supercar

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

Very good on gas mileage but still has the speed if needed to open up on the highway. Smooth ride and very responsive steering. Approaching 100k miles and no significant problems besides changing the brakes and cabin air filter. The truck space is adequate to hold your tools, lawn chairs and any other small items similar to a stroller or baby seat.

Car system and paint issues.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

Tire pressure sensor is always wrong. I always have it reset, but within a week it tells me that my front driver side tire is low. Also, the paint on car fades. I have seen this with other nissans, and it is happening to mine after only being off the car lot for less than 4 years. So I am very disappointed when it comes to this about nissan.

- Jay R

Smooth drive sometimes I can't even feel or hear the car is even on and running.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

I love the way the car drives. Very smooth ride. It is a V6 engine so it does tend to take up lots of gas so that's a downer. I spend about $300 a month on gas alone as the gas does go super quick but the way it drives is so nice so sometimes it's worth the price. I like the bulkiness of the car, makes me feel a lot safer on the road.

Nissan 2013 maxima with high quality and performance.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

My vehicle is a Nissan Maxima . It's performance is great, drives smooth and is very comfortable. It comes with features like heated seats and heated steering wheel. I really enjoy this car because it's a great family car and is nice for vacations. It has leather seats which are comfortable. It seats 5 people minimum.

- Larry J

I love that my car is labeled as a 4-door sports car.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

I really love cruise control, and how I can accelerate and brake gradually with the push of a button. I also love the width of my car, the gas mileage is outstanding. The seats fit your body properly. Sun-roof equipped for sunny days. Also you can control the radio with buttons on the steering wheel.

Push start Fast Smooth Sexy

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

Its reliable spacious and fast. Great family car as well as a fast stylish car. Its sporty and luxury all in one. The interior is easily maintained. And it's definitely a looker. The trunk is huge and the fob key is great for security purposes. Definitely my favorite car.

- Marisa B

It's a great vehicle and I am looking to upgrade to a newer model this year.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

Gray smoke from the exhaust. It drives smoothly but it idles high when in park. It has an oil leak somewhere because I can put 4 quarts of oil and it still needs more oil in a week or so. My CD player stop playing and it will not load any new CDs. I do love my car tho.

- Jasmine H

Great information about this car.

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

Great car, nice and roomy, provides good gas mileage on highways, no problems with engine as long as maintenance is kept up ie changing oil rotation of tires, brakes. Better ride when you have good tires. Good body style. Not hard to find parts for if needed.

- Smokey J

I love my Maxima and don't want to drive another car!

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

I love my car. I've had it for 6 years now and it has never been in the shop. It drives really well and it's very comfortable. It also has a lot of power. I love the push to start feature and love that is has a sunroof. I will never not have a maxima.

2013 Nissan Maxima Driver

2013 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

It's a very great vehicle all around. However, the audio system is not too pleasing. It does not have Bluetooth music at all. It's a very basic old school audio system. It's very great on gas. It's very sleek, compact, and sporty, with a classy feeling
