who cares? It'll still have a CVT and therefore suck giant elephant cock AND balls.


Yeah, I went there.

Never really been a fan on nissan in general. Have never owned one and most likely never will.

I've ridden in them and my dad used to have a few older maxima's.

If I didn't read the posts that's exactly what I was going to say. I want to like the front, but not sure.

The front reminds me of an Eagle. Not an @Eagle, but like one that is actually good looking

CVT is a total deal breaker... I have yet to drive a CVT car and like it.

I like the current gen Maxima and then I remember CVT and front wheel drive and that's the end of that though. I'm thinking about the same here. I like it. It's more muscular but CVT and front wheel drive. No thanks.

I drove the Infiniti Minivan thing they make (JX35) and it had the 3.5 mated to a CVT. It was one of the least fun vehicles I've ever driven. I mean just horrible. The CVT manages to leech any semblance of sportiness from the powertrain and it's not as if the VQ engines are known for being mediocre.

For the love of all things sacred I don't know why they stick with these transmissions. A Maxima could be a fun, sportier alternative to a Accord or Camry.

the maxima used to make sense when the altima was a smaller car. I don't really understand why nissan makes two of the same car now. Ever since they put the 3.5 in the altima it was the end of the maxima imo.
