Nissan Maxima 6 (A34) Sedan (2004-2008)
Nissan Maxima 6 (code A34) is an affordable sedan in production from 2004 to 2008. It was uncharacteristically available with a simple V6 engine that displaced 3.5 liters.
The naturally-aspirated VQ35DE V6 engine is a robust unit that could be found in many different Nissan vehicles. While it doesn't have the most thrilling numbers, it is a solid choice for an economy car.
Unsurprisingly, the Maxima 6 uses a basic suspension setup not intended for good handling.
