I love the interior layout. So sleek and stylish. It's very easy to read with the assortment of settings/dimmings. The most comfortable driver's seat, driving arrangement I have ever been in. Being 6' is kinda tough getting a good setting with my long legs, most cars are hard to reach anything. Love the telescoping wheel so I can reach it comfortably.

Getting in my car after lunch....hotty (blonde, pony tail, business suit, pink tinted wrap around shades...this is South Florida) parked in front of me was getting into a Lexus RX 330.

She: Like your Maxima?
ME: Very much.
She: Can I see the interior
Me: Sure.....
She: These cars are sexy, I like the dark tint all around....
Me: Uh, yeah, thanks....
She: Okay thanks, cya.
Me: Bye.

(Damn baby seat in the back, if you know what I mean haha).

Yeah I love my Maxima lol

Things I love about my Max:
-the awesome VQ35DE!!!
-the "low profile" look of the rear end
-the spacious and unique interior
-the huge a$$ trunk
-the aggressive front end with an aftermarket grille
-how perfect and sexy the 20" rims sit on the Max
-the comments and compliments I get for my car everyday!!!

My list can go on and on but I love my Max hence the little problems that can be fixed. I find myself shining and cleaning my Max almost everyday. I cant stand to drive it without it "BLINGIN"!!!! No matter what anybody else says, I still have the love for the car that I had when I first bought it!

All of the above. I remember when i first got her about 6 months ago. I would go to my laneway and just look at her. My heart would actually pitter patter like a teenager in love !

Come to think of it i still get that feeling every time i see it.

Whenever i park it somewhere, i usually turn around and look at it a couple of times while i'm walking up to where i'm going.

When i'm at work, i can't wait to hop in it at the end of the day, throw in a good CD and take the long way home.

Love My Maxima

You want to get about out in LA and you are going to have to Valet. Once a week some kid will hand me my keys and say nice car! I am 6-4, 230 pounds and I have plenty of headroom and space. You don't see one on every block and the rear buckets are a blast. I am very happy with my purchase.

Nice idea for a thread! Too often these forums tend to be very negative and appear to show the car in a bad light. There will always be minor issues with any car. As the owner of a 2004 Max SL and a 2004 Titan SE, I'm very happy with Nissan's quality.

Some of the things I like about the Maxima:

1. Excellent value for the money.
2. Upscale interior that reminds me a lot of my 3 series BMW.
3. Power tilt and heated steering wheel, heated seats.
4. Disctintive profile.. I wont drive a car that looks like another sheep in the flock. Definitly don't get this with the Maxima.
5. First rate Bose stereo and Sirius satellite radio. Great display that reads the titles off of my home-burned CDs.
6. 30-31mpg on the hiway and tons of power to pass anything with just a little throttle.
7. Very clean "euro" influenced back end. Distinctive tail lights and butressed roof/rear window treatment.
8. Killer cornering lights. No frilly attempts to hide them, just in your face lamps. Nobody else in this market segment even offers cornering lamps.
9. Skyview roof. At first I thought this was a rip-off since it doesn't open. I've had lots of cars with moonroofs and rarely opened them. This is cool since it's free and you can still look up and see the mountains if that's where you happen to be.
10. HID headlights. I paid big bucks for them on the BMW, came with the SL package here. Another example of good value for the $$.
11. Dealer has treated me like royalty. (they should after buying $65k worth of vehicles in 30 days) Seriously, EXCELLENT service from them.

Have no complaints against the Maxima, but sure a couple of things could be tweaked and improved. Maybe the headrests could reach a little further forward so you don't have to lean your head back so far on a long trip, and the lumbar support could be a little higher for me. But overall, I still love the car and really enjoy it on trips.

Carcus,

If there are negative's about the MAX, then people can always buy something else!! I think it is the best "Family-Sports" sedan on the road today. I have pushed my MAX to the MAX a few times, and trust me, it did more than I expected it to do!!! Plus, living at Keesler is nice, but living at MacDill is even better in a MAX!!!

I also love my Max b/c it DOESN'T look like that, the guage layout is ugly. Max is so much sweeter. door buttons, yuck. and more ***** for HVAC. chrome shifter, blah. and love my heated seat button under armrest, i'd hate to reach past shifter.

Max interior is so sleek and clean.


Don't worry, they're keeping a distinction between alti and MAX. you may just have to be as defined as us to realize it or care i guess.

wow look at her smile! who made that grille, and we're did you buy it? It looks a lot different than all that I've seen. I still like the OEM, but may want a change down the road. Have an extra Nissan logo to slap on.

Above all of the features and profile of the car, my #1 favorite aspect of my Maxima has to be the new car/leather smell. When I first bought it everyone would want to check out the exterior and interior and I would encourage them just to sit inside and experience that new car smell. I roll with the windows up and watch what I bring in the car (food, people) in order to preserve that for as long as I can. That's my #1.

Just reading this thread....all the new opinions and stuff....after all the negativity, really is nice for a change. Wonder how long my new car smell will last, ahhh.....I love it so, but mine does not have leather, so the new car smell seems like it is gone most of the time, but on warm days, still comes back now and again.

i don't notice new smell anymore. but when others check it out, they do. If you have leather, Zaino Leather protectant gives that fresh/sweet leather scent, very close. works on vinyl too... I want to apply some now. did my tires today though.

I've been seeing a few more 6th Gens recently in my area. So others obviously love them too. At night, they don't recognize me though. w/ my oranges off and yellow fogs on or off. I love my car! just added an alarm so the bad people stay at least 2 feet away from her. adding home made grounding kit tomorrow just to spoiler her more and spiff up the engine w/ some red. I want to go drive her now. but I'll let her sleep.

am I okay? I almost truly feel like she's my girl.....

i've only had my '05 3.5 SL for a couple of weeks (618 miles and climbing) so i haven't fully explored everything yet.

but during chicago winters, the heated steering wheel, mirrors and seats will be very much appreciated.

i absolutely love the nav system, the auto dimming mirrors, soft suspension, smooth acceleration, and supple leather seats.

and contrary to the general concensus of this site, i think the 6-disc bose stereo system is way more than adequate... and that's coming from an electronica/industrial/gothic music junkie. so, add that to my list as well.

I've had mine for 2 weeks. I love everything about it. Much nicer than my wife's Quest. But I really love the black leather interior. Didn't think I would like the black but wanted the 6 spd so I had a hard time finding any color other than white and red.

Great thread. I just bought my 05 Maxima after turning in my 04 Spec V. Loved the Spec but too small for me and my three teen aged kids and their friends. So I traded up to the MAx. I got a black one, with 6 speed, driver preferred, and sunroof. LOVE it. Better than the Altima SER I test drove. Great car for the money. Great car period. Needs stiffer springs and better tires. Before I had the car 24 hours, it had tint and badges removed and all the license plate sh*t. Anyone who disses this car doesnt appreciate its great qualities. I look at it every time I walk away in parking lot. And I walk far because I wont park it next to anyone. My 2 cents.

PS The steering wheel heater and the folding mirrors rock!!!!!

What do I love about my Maxima? Damn good question.

Cruisin at 60-65 in auto..... slide over to manual then down to 3rd, then floor it...BUT First!! Make sure nothing is in front of you!! This is key!! nothing like it...makes me feel like Dave Chappelle in Half Baked.(signing for weed)

Awesome cars out there....awesome org. That Blue one with the 20'..."bad" pictures? please ..you cant take a bad picture of that car. You know you have a killer ride when other Maxima Drivers go...DAMN.... Come on admit it ...you do it for us dont you?... Well keep doing it dude!! Dou you have the blue lights(dash) yet... that would CAP IT OFF.

Isn't it just fun to "explore the envolope" ...I cannot wait to find winding roads! It's just amazing how far you can push these cars.... I have tried to break the wheels lose...and its gets to the point your like...OK maybe this is just a little faster than I should be going but it sticks, sway is minimal at best. Is the envolope unattainable? Let us Pray....

Maxima = Great Car and Fun to Drive
Like a beautiful Girl... With a personality.
