  • So as you guys know I recently announced the basically in the market and looking for a new car

  • You know a long term take my time and casually

  • Look for something to you know find that perfect new car something to match the criteria. I'm looking for

  • Now we did take some suggestions and one of the things that came up

  • Goes to my mind and what your all suggestions were

  • Is the Maxima

  • Because I am looking for a sedan

  • I'm looking for something sporty something it has, you know, a reasonable amount of luxury features would be nice and

  • The maximum that does match a lot of those characteristics, so here we are today in the 2019 Maxima

  • This specific one and super test driving is the platinum trim, that would not be what how we're looking to get

  • It's too expensive but the driving dynamics of the car is the same

  • Pretty much on all the trims except for the S bar which is a little bit more hard edge a little bit sporty here

  • What I would probably be looking for is the SV or the S, though

  • Just depending on what type of discounts as far as why I'm interested in it

  • I already kind of addressed a little bit of that stuff. But one of the main reasons is actually that price

  • The sticker price is reasonable to start with but for those of you not familiar with

  • The current discounts and stuff of the Maxima they can be discounted a good amount for sure

  • Especially as towards the end of model years and whatnot

  • So definitely you can get a Maxima for a very appealing number. Let's just say so

  • Why not? Let's take it for a drive. Let's get

  • You know some good honest

  • driving time in

  • See, you know if it meets that criteria

  • I spoke about it in our reviews of different Nissan products and Infiniti is a vq

  • Engine is actually one of my favorite engines

  • I

  • Just love the way it sounds I like the raspy-ness to it

  • It's not the most water and it's not the most refined but I actually like the rough edges

  • Of it. I

  • Just find it appealing. It definitely sounds good a start up and

  • Like you said that's that's really appealing compared to some turbo fours, which have no sound sound kind of crappy

  • So that certainly is appealing on the worried side is the CVT

  • That's not ideal for sports sedan. It's also from wheel drive a front wheel drive only so you

  • May have concerns putting the power down

  • But anyways enough rambling so what we're gonna do basically is just give you all this

  • sneak peek fly-on-the-wall

  • Perspective we're gonna take it on a honest

  • Test drive just have an honest conversation with each other between us and you all can kind of

  • Be there along for the ride

  • Stirring is oddly hard to turn low speeds like really gonna crank it

  • Somehow do the driving but one thing that caught my attention was the fact it really does not have much

  • storage space in here

  • Enough place to stick your phone

  • Mystic stuff, I mean this is smaller than the Altima in terms of pretty much everything

  • Maybe not the exterior dimensions. But as far as the interior space is concerned has less rear legroom less trunk space

  • So it doesn't really surprise me honestly, but it is a nicer place to spend time

  • If the sound does not disappoint now I

  • Do exactly what I was hoping it would sound like and it does

  • Out on the road

  • And what I'm gonna be paying particular close attention to is the CBT

  • Yeah, I'm ready for ya

  • Rubberband and make sure there's no rubber band eNOS and see if that would be how much that would bother me

  • This car does not get super great fuel economy

  • 20 in the city cuz I want to get the city that's not good 24 combined. That's not good

  • He's not recommends premium fuel. I would never put premium

  • If it's recommended, I mean most the times he Consumer Reports has tested this specific car and

  • Said that it's useless

  • The TLX in this car are two of the cars that really makes no sense to put premium fuel in because

  • They just use naturally aspirated v6 engines

  • That are the same as in other

  • Nissan products that just because this is more premium car does not I

  • Let's just say it doesn't make me feel like I'm having a more premium experience just because I'm a more putting premium gas

  • done

  • But you don't have to use so if you ever had this card on

  • Steering wheel is great

  • I really love that part

  • The steering itself

  • It's fast responding it's not

  • It's not the most feel

  • So it's kind of numb

  • so you lose a little bit of perspective aware of you where the wheels are placed, but

  • It definitely is fast enough

  • Now sport mode is I like the sport modes I would use that

  • You know definitely makes things more responsive really sharpens this car up

  • Most cars that

  • Rust I really am like it makes it makes a really noticeable difference

  • A lot of cars. It's just a button. You push make a

  • Puts a red trim on the gauges

  • Feel and feel like you're really sporting it up

  • But this is you know, you actually can notice the steering it gets it has gotten quite a bit heavier

  • Even faster feeling. I'm always do something. I'd like adaptive dampers or anything so you're not gonna like

  • get you know more tight on the suspension or anything, but

  • Still feels good and a throttle response is a lot more aggressive. The sound is amplified through the both speakers. I think this

  • Do you like this steering?

  • Yep

  • I like it. Like I said is it

  • You know, it's not the world's best scaring

  • Pasta you know the mazda6

  • They they the steering on that is probably better

  • but I also don't think this car has this much torque steer as

  • They have similar issue mounts of torque

  • This is down a little bit, but not a lot

  • However, this feels like it puts the power down a little bit more. Don't you think or maybe?

  • Yeah the last time I drove it was a little bit wet that place does play a factor of course. Yeah, there's a

  • moderate amount of body roll in the Platinum

  • And the you know the other luxury minded trims the SR

  • It does have a sport-tuned suspension. So to keep things firmer on the ride quality, but also tighter one

  • turning

  • Or anything because that

  • Seems pretty good. Yeah, I have a narrow body. So the seat is I recognize that

  • Almost no manufacturer's seat is gonna hold me

  • In place because it has to accommodate

  • for the average body size

  • It's comfortable see it is and it's very comfortable like I really like the ride of this car

  • But I keep going back to the mazda6 but that's one that we have driven

  • It definitely I think it probably has a nicer ride than the Mazda 6 it's very smooth

  • It feels a little bit of a class above that or it could just be that you know

  • There's really fantastic materials in here. That's one of the reasons that I like this car so much is that this cabin is

  • nice

  • But that's CVT how that is the biggest issue with this car so

  • Where you put the power down, oh, it sounds really good and is really fast. Yes very fast

  • now I

  • Am I will say now. I've been driving this a little bit. I can see how the transmission reacts and different

  • situations a

  • little disappointed in the

  • CVT in the sense that unlike the Altima

  • Which had a really convincing simulation this older xtronic CVT?

  • The simulation doesn't really play that big of a role

  • it doesn't seem to want to simulate the gear changes except under it like heavy throttle and even then it's only a

  • Visual and audible thing like it just changes the RPM. I can see it. Yeah

  • it's a little bit better than if it just, you know slammed up at the top but

  • But I'm not feeling any kick and for somebody like myself I you know, I like silly sporty

  • I can't manually shift no trace up to something else or it comes with paddle shifters

  • From my perspective you should have but even then

  • You know being a CVT having paddle shifters on a CVT it still never gonna be the same regardless

  • That does the CVT seems to be this cars at weak point. I mean, but I kind of knew that going in right

  • The question is, you know do the other things offset it that's the ultimate question

  • So I guess the question basically is

  • Is the 2019 Maxima a car that I would consider I

  • Would say yes if the price is right

  • I've would prefer probably something that has a little bit more of a

  • All-inclusive sporty package

  • You know certain aspects of this car are more luxury oriented. I can't afford the SR and

  • in the other trims the suspension tuning and stuff is a little softer, but

  • Nothing that I nothing that from this test-drive has maybe want to rule it out

  • But I'm still not sold enough to be continued to call off the search

  • like I said, I have someone that's gonna be thorough and

  • I'm going to drive all types of different things

  • Even things that you know, a lot of people might have assumed that I would not be interested. Yeah

  • It's something like this, but you have to experience something in person. You can't just I love YouTube videos and whatnot

  • I want everybody to watch our YouTube videos

  • but by all means if you're really interested in a car, don't just go by what

  • We say about a car go and experience it in person

So as you guys know I recently announced the basically in the market and looking for a new car
