2008 Nissan Maxima gets a Price

Drumroll please….. starting price for the 2008 Nissan Maxima – $28,120 for the SE, and $30,380 for the leather-clad SL.  Nissan renamed the Driver Preferred Package to – get this – the Platinum Package.  And, that’s all.

Yup, they renamed a package.  That was the problem with the Maxima.  Never mind that the less expensive Nissan Altima 3.5SE outclasses the Maxima in nearly every way.  Starting price on the Altima is somewhere around the $25k range.  There’s 270 ponies under the hood, vs the 255 in the Maxima.  The Altima has an excellent turning radius, while the Maxima needs half of a football field to change directions.

So it’s up to you – spend $3 grand less and get more car, or spend the extra three large so you can say you have a Maxima.  Your call.
