Today's car of the day is Jada's 2006 Nissan Maxima.

The Nissan Maxima is a full-size car (previously mid-size) manufactured by Nissan and sold primarily in North America, the Middle East, and China. Most pre-2003 Maximas were built in Oppama, Japan, until the current North American Maximas started being assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee. The sixth generation Maxima, code-named A34, was only sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico. It was introduced in production form as a 2004 model at the 2003 North American International Auto Show. In the US, it came with the venerable VQ35DE, a DOHC V6 engine that produced 265 hp (198 kW) at 5,800 rpm, and 255 lb⋅ft (346 N⋅m) of torque at 4,400 rpm and a standard SkyView fixed glass paneled roof that ran down the center of the roof (from front to back) or an optional traditional style moonroof. Sixth generation Maximas were available in two trim levels, SE and SL. The sporty SE model came standard with 18 inch alloy wheels, P245/45R18 V-rated tires, stiffer suspension, rear spoiler, and an optional 6-speed manual transmission. The luxurious SL model came standard with 17 inch alloy wheels, P225/55R17 H-rated tires, wood interior trim, 6-disc CD changer, Bose stereo, leather seats, and HID headlights and optional heated front seats. The manual transmission was never offered in the SL model and the suspension is tuned for a softer ride. For all models, the rear independent suspension returned, this time using a multilink setup similar to the Altima.

The Nissan Maxima has been largely neglected in small scale diecast. Of the eight generations of Maxima that Nissan has produced, this Jada is the only designated Maxima model, with the first generation Maxima also available as the Japanese Nissan Bluebird made by Tomica and copied by "CF." The third generation Maxima (1989-1994) is a car I still hope to someday see in small scale; it was the last generation available mostly worldwide, so perhaps there is a chance someone (TLVN?) might make it someday.

For 2007, the U.S. Maxima became available with a standard Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) (similar to the CVT found in the Nissan Murano) as the only transmission choice; a manual transmission was no longer offered; however the CVT featured a manual mode. It featured a freshened front fascia (lacking the center block, the new grille closely resembled that of the 2007 Altima). Headlights were also more squared around the edges. New interior changes included an Intelligent Key system with integrated ignition tab, new center console, and new white-and-orange gauges as opposed to the older pure orange ones. For 2008, the Maxima's fuel economy dropped from 21MPG-City / 28MPG-Highway to 19/25 due to new EPA measurement methods. A Platinum Edition package of convenience features was added for 2008 on both SE and SL trim levels.

Again one of those cars that are stylewise not my cup of tea, but still high on the wantlist because of the subject. I am pretty sure no one else did USDM Maxima in small scale.

Same, on 20s or not. These did have an interesting sunroof option though.

Please allow me to join with all the others above who don't care for a Maxima on 20"s. To me, the rolling stock ruins what would otherwise be a pretty nice model.
