Summary:

Amazing fast comfortable car!

Faults:

Battery was replaced around 40,000 miles.

General Comments:

This car has been amazing. I purchased it from a the dealership, it was a manager's car there. He put 112,000 miles on it in 2 years 10 months. I got a great deal on it.

Fast as all heck (290hp).

Very comfortable, but the back seat is kind of small.

Leather is very comfortable.

Car looks and drives great.

117,000 miles (on a 2010), and no unexpected maintenance has been needed.

Love it!

Summary:

Sports car meets luxury sedan

Faults:

Nothing major wrong - just the back seat leather at one seam needs to be fixed.

General Comments:

The critics kicked this car when it came out, because it is not in manual, or because Nissan lists it as a sports car, and it did not have 500 horsepower. This is a sports car mixed with a nice luxury sports sedan. Sporty, but family oriented. My wife loves driving it - feels and looks like an Infiniti, but without the price.

I have heard some reviews by critics state why buy a Nissan when you can get the Infiniti - well I have a reason; I cannot pay an additional $10k. I got my 2010 Nissan Maxima with Sports Package for $27k.

I purchased a new 2010 Nissan Maxima and never have been sorry. It has every option that Nissan offers, from paddle shifting to full navigation and Bluetooth. The 290 HP engine makes it a rocket ship to drive.

I have 36 k miles on the car and never have had one problem. I take into the dealers shop every 3000 miles for service, and never have had any complaints about the service or service time.
