Positioned at the top of the Nissan line of sedans, the Maxima is everything its name would suggest. Without actually being a luxury brand, it still includes many of the same amenities found in the mid and full size sedans it competes with while being offered at a much lower price. It also boasts a well-powered V6 engine, premium sound system, and leather seats (with the upgraded trim package). Much to the dismay of Nissan, however, is that based on consumer reviews the Maxima scored lower in exterior aesthetics than its rivals. Still, it is a very well-rounded and reliable vehicle which holds its resale value very well. Plus, Nissan Maxima parts are easy to find if replacements or repairs need to be made.
