Pros

Fashionable interior; high-end luxury features for an affordable price.


Model News

Nissan's flagship Maxima sedan gets a new look, a refined interior appearance, and several new technology features for 2007. Most notably, a continuously variable transmission (CVT) replaces the former five-speed automatic. Four colors are new for 2007: Radiant Silver, Pebble Beach, Precision Gray, and Dark Slate. The Intelligent Key system, which allows vehicle entry and starting without physically using a key, is now standard. Horsepower is down 10 to 255, but this is due to a new power-rating method and actual performance reportedly remains the same.


Value Writeup

The luxurious Maxima sedan straddles the line between luxurious and sporty, and makes a stronger design statement for 2007 with a more chiseled appearance, showier wheels, and the continued availability of the standard SkyView roof. The Maxima makes a strong appeal on value, offering many luxury features not found on other vehicles in its price range.


Model Highlights

The Nissan Maxima gets a different outward appearance for 2007 due to a new front grille, hood, and headlight design. Alongside, wheel openings are larger and side sills are more aggressive. In back there's a new bumper design and redesigned tips for the dual exhaust.

A four-wheel independent suspension design allows a supple ride and responsive handling, while four-wheel, four-channel antilock disc brakes with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist provide strong, stable braking.

Inside, the instrument panel's center stack has been redesigned for better ergonomics, with the overall number of buttons reduced, and a Fine Vision Meter display makes the gauges more readable. Also, seats get new upholstery, and there's new aluminum or wood-toned trim throughout the interior.

A 3.5L V6 remains the only engine, making 255 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque and incorporating continuously variable valve timing and variable induction, and it's now paired exclusively with the Xtronic CVT instead of a conventional automatic transmission. Xtronic brings a manual mode to simulate gears for sporty driving.

The Maxima is available in two trims, 3.5 SE and 3.5 SL, and the SL has almost all of the common luxury amenities standard; however, the options list brings many features usually reserved for more expensive luxury-brand vehicles. Options include a Premium Audio Package, which brings an eight-speaker Bose sound system with six-disc changer; a Sensory Package that brings leather seats (heated in front), heated mirrors, a power passenger seat, and a digital compass. On the 3.5 SE, the Driver Preferred Package adds a power-adjusting steering wheel, memory driver's seat with power lumbar support, auto-dimming memory mirrors, a heated steering wheel, and a rear sonar system to aid with parking; on the 3.5 SL, it also includes Bluetooth and auto tilt-down mirrors.

Wheels have been redesigned to match the new appearance. The 3.5 SL gets 17-inchers with H-rated tires, while the 3.5 SE gets an 18-inch, seven-spoke design with higher-speed, V-rated tires.

A SkyView glass-paneled roof is standard on both Maxima models. It stretches nearly the entire length of the roof and comes with sliding sunshades. A conventional, smaller opening sunroof can be substituted.

There's also a DVD navigation system with a seven-inch display and satellite radio can be provided by either Sirius or XM.

The advanced air bag system on all Maximas comes with front seat side-impact air bags and roof-mounted side-curtain air bags. Active head restraints are also standard. The vehicle dynamic control system is optional. Xenon headlamps are standard on the 3.5 SL and optional on the 3.5 SE.

Summary
CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AN 'INTELLIGENT KEY' FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 114, 'THEFT PROTECTION.' DURING AN INSPECTION OF SOME VEHICLES AT THE ASSEMBLY PLANT, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE STEERING WHEEL WAS LOCKED WITH THE IGNITION KNOB IN THE 'OFF' POSITION BUT THE VEHICLE TRANSMISSION NOT BEING IN THE 'PARK' POSITION.

Consequence
IF THE KEY IS TURNED TO THE "OFF" POSITION WITHOUT THE TRANSMISSION BEING IN THE "PARK" POSITION, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE STEERING WHEEL CAN LOCK WHEN TURNED TO THE RIGHT.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE THE STEERING WHEEL LOCK ASSEMBLY FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON DECEMBER 18, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
