Reviewed: 2009 Nissan Maxima

4dr Sedan 290-horsepower 3.5L V6 6-speed shiftable CVT FWD

Why the 2009 Nissan Maxima?

Exterior styling

Sleek, sophisticated style. Looks like a grown up Corvette.

Front seat support & comfort

Adjustable everything! Air conditioned driver seat a huge consideration.


Car feels like it floats down the highway. Superior speed and handling.

Brand reputation & image

Reputation is stellar and everyone who has ever owned one just raved about reliability and performance.

Why Not the 2009 Nissan Maxima?

Dealer practices

Dealership sold me a wrecked car, which they fixed in-house, as a new car. Different dealer discovered major problems. Nissan finally replaced car.


Road noise is terrible. While on bluetooth, even the sound of changing lanes is heard on the other end.

Fuel economy

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.

Cargo capacity

Trunk is deceptively small for the size of the car. The tiny pass-through from trunk to back seat is a downgrade from 2008 fold down rear seat.
