Model Highlights

The Maxima S and SV both come with a 290-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine and a continuously variable transmission with manual mode. Anti-lock brakes and electronic brake-force distribution are standard equipment, plus speed-sensitive powers steering. The Maxima's sporty styling is evident in its dual mufflers with chrome-tipped finishers, LED taillights, and power sliding moonroof. It's even got 18-inch alloy wheels, though 19-inchers are available with the Sport Package.

The Maxima isn't all about looks though. All of its safety features are standard equipment, like traction control, tire pressure monitoring, an energy-absorbing steering column, and the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System. Even with all these systems on board, the Maxima still manages 19 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway.

The interior has leather seats, shift knob, and steering wheel. The 8-way power driver's seat has lumbar support, while the passenger has to make do with a 4-way power seat. The rear bucket seats fold down with a 60/40 split. Dual-zone climate control with air filter is standard, including rear-seat air conditioning controls. Everything in the Maxima is power, from the push button start to the remote windows down function.

The packaged options for the SV add quite a bit to the already long list of features. The Monitor package adds a 7-inch monitor with rear-view camera and a 2GB Music Box flash drive, and the Cold package heats the mirrors, front seats, and steering wheel.

The Sport package gives the Maxima SV a sportier feel with a tuned suspension and 19-inch wheels, plus a rear spoiler and metallic interior trim. The Premium package plays to the more luxurious side of the Maxima, with a dual-panel moonroof, heated and cooled driver's seat, and eucalyptus wood-tone interior trim. Both the Sport and Premium packages include the Monitor package, plus paddle shifters and HID xenon headlights.


Model News

There are almost no changes for the 2010 Maxima following its 2009 freshening. Like many mid-priced sedans, USB input and Bluetooth connectivity were added as standard equipment this year.


Value Writeup

The Maxima's sporty styling and handling plus its long list of standard features makes it a solid performer in its segment. There are two trim levels, plus Sport and Premium packages that can be added for the maximum in comfort and technology.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009 AND 2010 ALTIMA AND MAXIMA PASSENGER CARS. THE UPPER FRONT STRUT INSULATORS MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED OUT OF SPECIFICATION RESULTING IN A POTENTIAL FOR THE STRUT INSULATOR TO CRACK.

Consequence
IF THE STRUT INSULATOR IS CRACKED, THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR THE STRUT ROD TO COME OUT OF ITS MOUNTING POSITION, WHICH COULD AFFECT VEHICLE STABILITY AND INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

NISSAN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE FRONT STRUT INSULATORS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 5, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-615-725-1000.

OWNERS 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).
