Nissan Maxima 2010 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Nissan Maxima 2010 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Nissan Maxima handling
Our Nissan specialist, Jerry Newman, was horrified at the thought of trying to improve the handling of the Maxima, he believed it handled well as it was and it was better left alone. If you were to seek to improve the handling you could fit uprated springs and struts, but they would be expensive. Use quality components from someone like Pedders, perhaps you could check the web for components used in Japan, but understand you will have a detrimental affect on the car's ride whatever you do, and you might not improve the handling much anyway.Show more
No spare key with used car
There's not much you can do, it's a used car and an issue with a missing second key would not be covered by the statutory warranty on used cars. It's one of those things that need to be sorted out before you accept the car. Once you've done that you've lost your bargaining power, but I would approach the dealer and try to come to an arrangement with them. I would think it would be well worth him spending $600 to have a satisfied customer.Show more
Nissan Maxima power
It really depends on how much power you think you need and what you need it for, but the Maxima is a very good car and its 3.5-litre V6 puts out 170 kW and 333 Nm, more than enough for most people. While the Falcon puts out more, 195 kW and 391 Nm, I question the need for that much power for the everyday driver. It's perhaps worth remembering that not so long ago the best performing V8 you could buy didn't put out as much as the Maxima. The only thing to remember is that the Maxima is front-wheel drive and the Falcon is rear-wheel drive, which can be better in some circumstances, although it's hard to pick a front-wheel drive car today, they are so good.Show more
