"I purchased my used 2012 Nissan Maxima SV Sport in June, 2016 w/14k miles. Very pleased so far. Only complaint is annoying low-speed rearview mirror vibration. Car runs strong, handles well & looks amazing. Nissans CVT is one of the best, just takes some getting used to. Using mid-grade fuel, avg MPG so far is around 23/city. Havent done much highway driving, but sticker says 19/26. Overall build is solid, quality interior amenities, soft leather & BOSE stereo is awesome. Sport pkg includes paddle shifters, 19s, sport-tuned suspension, etc. Mine also has the cold weather pkg featuring htd mirrors/seats/steering wheel.
I have only 1 regret..my Maxima doesnt have the tech pkg w/rearview camera + HDMI (+ NAV if desired). Have read blogs, etc., no way to cost-effectively install aftermarket. Do yourself a HUGE favor and ONLY purchase w/tech pkg."
"I have owned this car for about 5 years now, I loved it up to a year ago when the front suspension on the right side started going bad. I have been to several mechanics to claim to know what it is, yet they cannot figure out the problem. Not even the Nissan Dealership can figure out why it pulls to one side, and not the other. They said it has something to do with the lower control arm but they cannot figure it out. The reliability of the engine is great! I do not think I will ever have a problem with it, but the suspension is now basically bad, very disappointed with this chain of recent events. :/"
