Jeff T Posted: 7/22/2010 1:59pm PDT Great review - honest & sincere. Most professional reviews compare the Maxima to rear wheel drive / stick shift sports cars which is not a fair compairson. Besides, front wheel drive is much more suitable for folks who live in snow country as I do. I am middle aged and just purchased a fully loaded silver Maxima and am thrilled with car. My wife & I were looking for a vehicle with sporty appearance, plush inside, well handling with a good dose of passing power. The Maxima has all of these characteristics. It is a beautiful piece of machinery and performs well. The high tech creature feaures are also exceptional. The car should suit us well. After all, I didnt buy it to take it to the Watkins Glen track (although that is where I live).
