Nissan Maxima Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2010 4dr Sedan 290-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
16-17 in the city. 25-26 on the freeway. Not bad than other comparable cars. see full Nissan Maxima review
2009 4dr Sedan 290-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
It is between 25-29.2 on the highway depending on headwinds. It seems sensitive to wind, mileage-wise. In town is excellent. In 4k miles the worst tank has been 23.2 when it was brand new and very cold out. City mileage is understated in my opinion. see full Nissan Maxima review

For a large car with a relatively large engine, this engine is mirror smooth which helps it get great highway mileage. see full Nissan Maxima review
2002 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
I consistently get 25 in the city, and 33-34 all highway. Excellent fuel economy for any car, let alone one with a 3.5L V6. see full Nissan Maxima review

Not as good as advertised see full Nissan Maxima review
2010 4dr Sedan 290-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Depends on a lot on your right foot. Driven like a Prius, 26 MPG city and 33 MPG highway. Driven normally with occasionally throttle bursts, 27 MPG highway, 21 MPG combined. The CVT ratio spread maxes out at 2200 RPM at 75; a little high for MPG. see full Nissan Maxima review

City driving is brutal on mpg. If you get 12 mpg you are doing well. Highway miles are great - over 30, so great on trips, stinks for commuting. see full Nissan Maxima review
2008 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6

Not as good in town as expected. Get around 20-22 mpg in town, 25-28 on hi-way see full Nissan Maxima review

24MPG on the HWY. Come on...Crown Victoria is almost 30 has a V8 and gets 29 MPG on the HWY. see full Nissan Maxima review
2002 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed manual FWD
This car loves to suck gas especially when pushed. And not just any gas, the high compression VQ35DE engine requires premium. In my experiences anything less than 91 octane will yield poor performance and odd engine noises. I average 17-18 mpg at best. see full Nissan Maxima review
