Chicago radio legends Steve and Johnnie take us on a video tour of the aggressively styled 2016 Nissan Maxima.
Nissan took the wraps off its next-generation “4-Door Sports Car” at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima is 1.3 inches lower and 2.2 inches longer than the previous-generation model. The radical new look is highlighted by Nissan’s “V-Motion” front-end styling motif, “boomerang” taillights, unique kick-up rear roof pillars, and a floating roof appearance. The model lineup expands to include SL, SR, and top-line Platinum trim levels in addition to the existing S and SV grades.
I’ve been thinking about this car a lot lately, and I’m not quite sure why. Normally it’s friends I’ve lost touch with that cause me to drift into moments of nostalgia; this time it’s a Nissan. My Maxima was a ’99, and I bought it to replace my 1995 Integra. I hated having to part with the Acura, but I found it especially difficult to install and remove my then-newborn daughter into and from her car seat in the back of that fabulous but cramped coupe. A four-door was in order.
I learned to drive a manual transmission in 1982. I was in something of a hurry to do so, as I had just started working at a service station and was not keen to admit to my boss or any of the mechanics there that I could not operate a three-pedal vehicle. It was just assumed that I could, and I meant to meet that expectation.
Funny story about learning to drive stick…
Point taken: This is a strange time to try and make any sense of auto sales numbers. Pandemic-depressed auto sales plummeted 35 percent in May and were down 25 percent in June. There’s some indication that consumers are becoming accustomed to doing business in the era of social distancing however, as July sales were only down about 20 percent.
