We have owned 4 Maximas in the past, and were considering another, when we took a drive in this car. If you're a Maxima fan, don't drive this one or you'll take it home!

Nissan has an outstanding reputation for longevity and great performance. My next car will be a Maxima. I look forward to driving the 4 door sports car.

Voted at or near the top in customer satisfaction. Have owned numerous Nissan vehicles and have nothing but great things to say about them.

In Kuwait Nissan has a very good image. Resale value is really good

Critics may bash American brains when it comes to engineering, but owners have a different story to tell. I have had my issue with Asian vehicles and had lasting luck with domestics, so I use my own experiences to guide my mechanical judgement.

Example of GM and Chevrolet making a good product.

Chevy and GM are getting lots of bad press - some deserved, some not.
2007 4dr Wagon 149-horsepower 2.2L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
GM has had some bad press lately-but quality at GM has improved substantially over the past 5 years or so- and with a 5 year 60,000 power train warranty (I am at 29000 miles), I feel covered.
