#662 of 684 2009 Maxima SV vs 2009 Altima 3.5SL
Aug 06, 2009 (5:16 pm)
I'm interested in getting either a 2009 Maxima SV with tech but without sport or premium or a fully loaded 3.5SL altima; both are really nice cars and what ever one I get will be determined which one nissan is giving a better deal on at the time I go; I'm curious to know if anyone has test driven both these vehicles and if one vehicle has a better ride quality than the other in regards to control, bumpiness, etc? I know both have independent suspensions without a sports tuned suspension but I wanted to know if the max with its wider and bigger wheels would give a more bumpy ride than the 3.5SL altima?

It's no match,,,,,,go with the 09 Maxima with the premium package. It's a very smooth ride. I didn't like to "sports" suspensions.

I agree....Altima is also about to have some minor re-styling. If you decide to go with Altima, it may be worth waiting for 2010 models.

Has anyone ever used the Flash Drive feature in the 09 Maxima audio system. If so, what make and part number did you use??

Technical folks claim the main reason the Flash Drive exists is for the NAV system to be updated with new maps and POIs, rather than to listen to music. NAV updates are done at the dealership.

Has anyone been successful getting iPhones to pair up via Bluetooth to an 2009 Maxima??
#668 of 684 2010 Maxima's have arrived

A bunch of new 2010 Maxima's are on the lots now. 2009's were cleared out. The new Crimson Black color appears as a very dark brown - very unique!! Also, the new wheels on the Sport Packages are just slightly more darker grey than the 09's. Somehow I was expected a more dramatic color difference- such as the dark grey alloys seen on the TL Type S.

You can use it to listen to Audio. I use a 4GB compact Flash card with no problems.
When I bought the car they told me that this slot would be use to update the NAV DB too.

My 2009 Maxima Premium Tech has the sunroof that pops out and slides back. The cAr is 4 months old with 5k and the roof is starting to rattle alot over mildly rough pavement. Two trips to the dealer and they tighten the bolts and lube it and said their is nothing else they can do and some rattling should be expected. Has anyone else run into this problem?

My state has a lemon law. If my dealer let me hang like that, they would have the car back in a NY minute !
