2012 Maxima SV Sport by USADT89 on 04/25/2012. Trim: 2012 Nissan Maxima SV, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Beautiful automobile, inside and out. It's got all the bells and whistles for any driver. I got the SV Sports and Technology Package and I love it! The car is extremely quick and agile. The 290 HP is effortless and the CVT tranny is the best in the business. Going to add a K&N air charger to bump it up over 300 HP.
Cons: Had the car for about a month and a half when a stain developed in the headliner right below the satellite antenna hub. It was leaking water from a bad seal. Dealership fixed no questions asked and replaced it with a brand new headliner. Good as new.
Overall review: Best automobile I ever owned both is looks and performance. Well worth taking a look at if you have the money.

2012 Nissan Maxima by Kasey on 07/03/2012. Trim: 2012 Nissan Maxima S.
Pros: Good power, handles great, love the CVT, looks good
Cons: Gas mileage
Overall review: I love this car. The car handles great but also rides well and it also has some kick to it. I love the CVT tranmission, i dont understand why people hate it so much, its a lot better than a regular transmission. The only problem is the gas mileage. 26 hwy isnt really that good compared to its competitors. Otherwise, its a great car.

Great car by CaptainROFL737 on 04/21/2012. Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Very fast! It has almost 300 HP and is a great reliable car. Very comfortable inside as well. We've had it for 21/2 months and it still has the new car smell. It's an amazing looking car. You do attract people's attention with the beauty and power of this car.
Overall review: I'd suggest it to anyone who has the money

Maximize Your Drive! by Craig from Doylestwon, PA on 05/07/2012. Trim: 2012 Nissan Maxima SV, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The combination of all the convenience and comfort bells and whistles, along with excellent acceleration and very good handling for a big car make this a great vehicle to own and drive. The car is very comforatble on long trips and also has the tenacity to take on corners and two lane road passing with applomb. I have the SV wit the 19" wheels and stiffened frame and this model can keep up with the German imports and Infiniti's. Exterior styling is still great looking even four years into the model.
Cons: Road harshness can be trransmitted to the interior from choppy pavement, man-hole covers and expansion joints.
Overall review: This car is a great buy and a hybrid between hauling four adults and having a fun driving experience. However, it does not feel like there is any compromise when you are on the open road.

Infiniti in Disguise by Al on 05/06/2012. Trim: 2012 Nissan Maxima SV, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The lease was up on my 2010 Maxima SV so I leased a 2012 SV with Premium Package. In just 2 model years there has been a huge improvement in refinement, and retuning of the CVT. I drive in "sport" mode and it feels like any other well-behaved automatic. I love the engine, it has THRUST in droves. The steering and brakes are responsive and it has a smooth ride. All controls operate smoothly and have a high quality feeling. The two-tone ivory/black interior is upscale and very appealing. Everyone comments on the car, and it drives with a very substantial and solid feel.
Cons: The only negative is the panoramic roof which is very noisy over about 40mph when open, and no deflector is available. Nissan should offer a deflector or make the regular sunroof an option on the Premium.
Overall review: A very well-built, well finished, nicely appointed sporty car that handles well and does everything that most drivers would ask for. It may not be a sports car but it is fun to drive, responsive and agile, and has an expensive feel to it.
