  • Perfectly Pleased with my Platinum - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    I did extensive research and compared many other models in this class and price point. The 2016 Maxima Platinum is hands down the best value in terms of design, quality and performance. Even the pro reviewers who criticize the CVT, still have overall positive comments about the performance and handling. I got a year end sale and saved about 6k all in. I'm thrilled with this car and will keep it a long time.

    First in Dallas Fort Worth to buy and loving it. Fast acceleration 300 hp and still gives great mpg. Cool styling and great comfort with a lot of leg room. So many features you won't know till you buy and there's a sports mode too! Cool led daytime running lights and spacious inside with huge panoramic roof! Awesome car period.

  • First non premium name plate - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    I like having cars that are relatively unique. When I first saw the Maxima I was taken to the new exterior immediately. I went to a dealership and test drove the car. The interior is impressive. The quality of materials used is in line with other Luxury car manufacturers, the zero gravity seats are not as comfortable as I am used to but offer adequate adjustments. The easy entry feature for me is a must. I was surprised to find the Maxima had it. The layout of the dash, including the main display, push button start and the Nissan informant System is in line with my Porsche. The 7 inch display between the instrument cluster limits my need to take my eyes off the road to see my GPS and other important information, again like my Porsche. The quietness of the interior is amazing. The acceleration,and handling of the car exceeded my expectations. The Maxima is not a sports car as Nissan is promoting, but it is a true Luxury car. Put a Premium name plate on the Maxima and you would easily pay $15,000.00 + more. This is the best investment in a Luxury car I have ever made, and one of the best values on the market

  • Love It!! Very Nice Redesign - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    I purchased the Maxima SL 6/30/15 and I love it! It certainly is a head-turner as it's a beautiful car. Running on the highway in sport mode is great although the cruise control "safety component" is something I'll have to get used to. I can't say anything bad about this car. Everything is great. Many complain about the CVT but I don't really notice a difference in this model. I think Nissan has improved it over the years. Test drive one and you'll be in love with it too!

  • CVT , CVT, CVT, NISSAN WRONG DECISSION! - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    my first big issue of this car is the interior space, its so small, nissan squeezed this car unbelievably, can't understand why really, every position in this car is so small, driver position is definitely the worst position in this car, such a huge console why?, what was the purpose of this? if you are trying to put stuff like that u have to make more room in this car, unacceptable! second issue, this car should paired with regular automatic transmission like infiniti does, but not CVT, its a big mistake, its killing all the power of this beautiful engine, such a disaster with that CVT! the gas mileage actually stay way behind what nissan is saying, with 300hp engine should never be paired with CVT!

  • Classy yet powerful design! - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    My only complaint about this car is the mileage per gallon! But this may only be because before this car I was driving a 2010 Toyota Corolla (manual transmission) so this car is a lot different! But other than that I am enjoying it everyday!

  • Maximize with Maxima - 2016 Nissan Maxima
    By -

    I purchased a 2016 Maxima one month ago and have driven it 3000 miles. I previously owned 2000, 2006, and 2011 Maximas, so obviously I am partial to them, primarily because they have excellent styling, good value, and you don't see yourself every third car coming down the road. My previous experiences have been mostly positive, so that has kept me coming back. First what I like about this car: It has great styling, very cool wheels, a classy interior, and loads of power. I don't know how they did it, but this car has ten more hp than my '11 Max, but gets nearly five miles per gallon better gas mileage. The car drives nicely, corners great, sounds throaty, and has less wind noise than my '11. I love some of the color combinations, and the whole effect is very classy. In fact, I prefer the styling to several of the much more expensive luxury brands. Now what could be better: the seats are ok for comfort, but the ones in my '11 were much preferable. The trunk is way too small for a car of this price. While wind noise is reduced, I find that Nissan could work on a quieter cabin from road noise. The placement of the accelerator requires you to turn your foot to the side, and the room for your feet is smaller than I like. Interior storage is minimal and could be better. But, I give the car at least a four out of five overall.
