The Max was my favorite car when I worked at Nissan right after High School. By the time I had a "real" job and went to buy one they didn't make them in manual anymore...... sad day.

The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there."

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.” “They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra Credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3"
not "I'm looking for a M3".

I had to make the Choice last year between the 2012 SR Altima and a Left over 2011 Maxima. I went with the Altima due to the price difference and there was just something I did not like about the Maxima Exterior. Interior of Max was better for sure. Don;t get me wrong...I don;t think the Altima is that fantastc looking, but I do like the VQ.

This is my first go round with a CVT...And let me tell you...I focking hate it. I will never own another one. With this in every gawt damn car they make now......Nissan has lost my business for good.....Especially given the fact that they give you no choice. Not everyone likes that gay tranny

Oh yes......the new ALTIMA take the cake when it comes to ugly. My opinion, best looking year was 2002 when the New style was introduced with the Maxima Motor

Welcome to the Maxima family. A little odd saying that on e46fanatics. Come on over to maxima.org to get all the info you need on the 7th gen. Although, I will admit that forum has gone down hill these past few years. Hence, why I hang out here.

you can say this about most japanese imports now

have you seen the new accords, camrys, sentras, etc... they are all huge and hideous.

I miss 1995 when it comes to some good looking cars. I'm going to buy a J30 out of sorrow lol

I would take any maxima over any equal year ES any day of the week.. I can't stand Lexus, could care less if it is a step above. The maxima is an awesome car, but I will say as time goes on, I am liking them less and less. After 2003, the maxima just stared to lose its touch... IMO
