The Maxima comes with Nissan's three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty.

Automobile Magazine predicts, "The Maxima's reliability should be very good, as the platform and engine have been in production longer than this generation Maxima." In addition to the basic warranty, Nissan owners get a five-year/60,000-mile drivetrain warranty -- which Automobile Magazine notes is "usually the province of luxury brands." Maxima owners also get three-year/36,000-mile roadside assistance.
