    Nissan has ruined good cars with this rubber-band transmission. The Maxima is gorgeous, but drives like all other Nissans...about as good as a golf cart. Sad.

    That's a really narrow minded and ignornant view. I've got a 2010 Maxima with almost 30k on it. The CVT has been smooth and great. I'm getting 26-27mpg tank avgs on my gas with almost 300 HP. Plus, I've been able to race and keep up with the best V6s out there so give me a break.

    In my opinion the CVT are crap, Go-Carts have them and they break down all the time, And you can read online about cvt failures from the wide range of years to present, but you dont see regular transmissions having these issues like slippage under 5000 miles, Granted the New 2013 might be better, but will you be willing to spend 30.000 dollars on a new car to find out,
    I will use what I know is liable for 20 years with 250.000 miles with no problems is my old regular Automatic Transmission. Oh and its a NISSAN ALTIMA 1993
