There's a lot to like in the Maxima, including the accessible power, the curvaceous body, and the driver-oriented cockpit. But the engine noise? Wow. I sure hope that Nissan has a vast team of engineers working on ways to develop a V-6 that isn't so noisy and coarse. This VQ-series V-6 engine family is outclassed in refinement by just about everyone now.
