Doesn't matter if I understand the term "full-sized sedan." It would be pretty difficult for me to fit these particular cars in my garage!!! Even when I had my 2002 Maxima, I either had to bump up against the washing machine which was at the front of the garage or tap up against the garage door in order to be able to move around to the front of the car while it was inside the garage. The 2002 Maxima was around 191 inches or thereabouts.

I agree. I dont understand the local dealers here in NJ who are adding market value adjustments at a time when auto sales are down for low mileage vehicles using premium fuel no less.
One dealer added 1k and the other 1.5 k and had the nerve to add 5oo for lo jack .
The price without the premium package for the latter was over 39 k.Someone please please explain this to me.
The car is nice but not earth shattering.

I can't find the Edmunds mpg test. Please direct me to this info. Thanks.

I hope I can answer this for you. THere are some people out there that aren't as informed as the people who read these forums and will pay that market adjustment. Also these people think they are getting a great deal if the dealer waves the market adjustment and throws in carpet kit while they are paying full MSRP.... But if you sat down with that dealer and gave them YOUR price, they would bend to your price. If they don't then that dealer well be closing real soon, since other dealers (as we have witnessed on these fourns) are discounting new car heavy. I hope this helps...

Terrible mileage, with premium no less. Very nice car, but I'm going to pass.
#62 of 684 2009 Maxima vs G35

I saw a 2009 Maxima at the dealer and pulled my 2008 G35X next to it. They were very similar. The Infiniti appeared to be a fancier trimed Maxima. The Infiniti's dash was a bit fancier. The center screen area and air ducts were nearly indentical. The Infiniti is tuned for 16 more hp (306 vs 290). That Maxima was 35K, 2 grand cheaper than my Infiniti. It appears that Nissan is pulling a GM and putting a different badge on virtually the same car!

This is the first model I've liked since 2002. But I think the premium fuel and poor gas mileage would nix it for me. I think, next time around, I might look more at the Nissan Altima hybrid instead.
