Nissan Maxima review: This car is a affordable luxury car.

2017 Nissan Maxima

I love my Nissan Maxima! It has had no mechanical issues. This car has very good pick up when merging onto the highway. My average fuel consumption is 25 miles per hour in town. It is a little better on the highway. It is roomy in the back seat for adults to sit in comfort. I have the platinum series so I love the body style. The glass top is very sleek and looks sporty. The entire body style is sporty. I like the way it hugs the road in curves. I like the way it handles overall. The ride is smooth and very quiet. The sound system is good quality as well. The back up camera is nice because it has 6 point cameras and a overhead view when backing up. The guided lines on the monitor is superior when backing into a parking spot. The lines indicate which direction to turn and how close you are in between the parking lot lines. This feature also indicates the distance to the end of parking space showing you the closer view as you get near the designated spot. I like to use the back up monitor to make sure there are no children behind me as a back out of my driveway. This is a fantastic safety feature. Speaking about safety this car is one of the safest cars on the road. The overall performance, reliability and comfort is great. I would not hesitate to purchase another Nissan Maxima. Style and luxury at an affordable price. I would highly recommend this car.

Maxima platinum totally awesomeness!

2017 Nissan Maxima 3.5 S

My maxima is awesome! It has all the horsepower you could ever need. Heated and cooled seats. Every bells and whistles you could ever hope for. When you put air in the tires you do not need a tire gauge the horn honks when it has the correct amount of air. It also flashes the hazards to let you know the air is full. It has a warning braking system if you get too close to the car in front of you. The seats are very comfortable. The only thing that is a brother to me is the positioning of the side mirrors. They obstruct my view when turning sometimes. I am only 5'3 so I am a shorty. The seats do raise so that helps. Overall the car is awesomeness!

Nissan maxima with black interior and exterior.

2017 Nissan Maxima S

I love my car so much. But just like everything else it comes with it is up and down, but mostly ups. I love the way it sounds, drives and all the lovely features it comes with. I have navigation but I do not really use it much. There are multiple ways of controlling the radio and other on screen options. It barely feels like you driving when your behind the wheel. I also love the blank interior and exterior but it keep the heat trapped inside the car. The trunk is very big and the cat it over all very roomie. I am most likely the driver when it comes to choosing with friend which car should we take.
