Will never purchase another Nissan again.

Nissan will not correct the problem with the forward looking radar on my new car. They recommended that I go thru the BBB auto line for a resolution. Buyers beware,the warranty is worthless. They are trying to avoid a Mass recall.

Has excellent safety features

The interior of the vehicle is very comfortable and clean. Multiple USB ports, leg room, conveniently placed console, and comfortable seating. I have taken it on several road trips so far and have no complaints for comfort.

Premium and Luxurious Sedan

by Nicks Max from Montgomery County, PA | September 17, 2019

The Maxima is amazing. I think its comparable to a BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Infiniti etc etc. The ride quality and road noise is truly awesome; so smooth and quiet with great performance (300Hp). You can get most of the Luxury and Tech that high end manufacturers offer but for much much less money. I Love my Maxima. Keep up the good work Nissan!
