    The Lexus, because its not a Nissan. Plus all but current Maximas are very boring.

    Depends what you are looking for. Maxima is more geared towards performance and Lexus is more of luxury.

    I've got an 89 maxima right now and I want more of a luxury but i'm also kind of in a bind, cuz I don't wanna lose the power as opposed to get a maxima. Kind of a luxury/power deal going on......

    I have an 03 maxima and it would be hard to go back to something with less HP, for even being so big, its still fun to drive

    The 3 has a lot in common with its more expensive siblings and a heritage dating back to the 70s.

    The ES300 is a Toyota Camry in drag.

    In reliability I'll grant you. In other areas... debatable.

    To me both the Maxima and Camry are boring cars anyway, the Maxima just seems slightly less boring.
