Pros Cons
Performance & handling of road Gas mileage is poor - more leg room needed for driver.
Comfort, quality of materials, workmanship Fenders too high - difficult to park
Styling - looks sleek and muscular Hard, rough ride. not as smooth as my avalon or my previous nissan maxima
Love the engine & how the car looks Viewing range when putting out onto oncoming traffic on right
Power pulling out into traffic Interior smell - car smells of burnt oil, toxic.
Exterior look is sporty, airodynamic and modern Seat belts are cheap, dont give with movement
Sturdy - this car is exceptional on the road. Panel alignment exterior - fit & finish
Styling - the styling of the maxima is second to none Interior console and dashboard makes the car look cheap
Performance & handling are absolutely amazing - sound system is incredible The trunk lock is in a terrible position. it should be on the door panel
Paint color - crimson black - so unusual, unique Groaning noise - supposedly from transmission - very annoying.
