Default 06 Max Totaled...looking for advice on a NUsed ride

A few weeks ago a guy ran into the back of me. Fortunately I wasn't hurt. I didn't think there was a lot of damage, but turns out the damages were estimated at $4800. So now I need to find me a new ride.

Thinking of getting the following:
- 07/08 Max - loved my 06, but love the front bumper and grill on the 07/08.
- 06/07 Infinity M35x - In my mind, this is a nicer Max.
- 09/10 Max SV - a friend of mine had an 07 Max and traded it in for an 10 or 11 Max and when he started that thing the note on the exhaust had me hooked. So I've thought about going to this edition for a few years. I don't like that it feels a tad smaller inside than the 6th gen.

I had the normal issues with the my Max (i.e. had to replace the tranny), but absolutely loved her! It was an 06 SL with 173K miles on her. So I am curious if you all have heard any issues with either of these 3. Will be surfing the internet and test driving this weekend to find my new toy.



Thanks in advance
Note: the rims on my Max in the pic were jacked a few years ago lol.

For sur an 09/10 should be tempting , a younger ride .

The cvt s I don t like much , but it s on your side to decide .

Guess the best would be to make the 6.5 conversion of an 05/06 .

Totally relate bro... Recently got my 05 Maxima totalled also and luckily not too long I found my new ride... 08 Max... Its awesome... Like you said the front and back bumpers are upgrades... I have only had for 4 weeks so early to comment but definetely agree with some guys about the CVTs transmissions.... Its too smooth at times.... Hehe... Otherwise a great car...
