Dealership Information


When it is time to indulge in a new midsize sedan, it may be hard to narrow your options down to the ride that is perfect for you. That is why we have designed a comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Ford Taurus vs 2017 Buick LaCrosse to give you a little more insight on why the 2017 Maxima is the vehicle that will provide you with everything you need. After this showdown, stop by and pay us a visit at Windsor Nissan for a test drive that you won’t soon forget!

Let’s jump right into things with the first impressions of the varying exteriors of the Maxima, Taurus, and LaCrosse. Offering a little originality is the boisterous grille of the Maxima, combining black and chrome accents to create a commanding front fascia. The Taurus and LaCrosse keep things simple with just chrome, leaving a lot to be desired. Taking things up a notch for a futuristic appearance is the “floating roof” found on the Maxima. The A, B, and C pillars transition seamlessly into the roof of the cabin, creating a fluid mold from glass to ceiling. Pair that with the sunroof found on the higher trim levels and the Maxima simply takes things one step above the Taurus and LaCrosse.

You will find the utmost comfort upon immersing yourself inside the Maxima while taking notice of all the amenities the interior has to offer. The 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat allows you to find your perfect niche while making those long commutes down I-95. Unfortunately, the Ford Taurus and Buick LaCrosse only manage to offer 8-way options. For an added sense of luxury for you and the people tagging along, a built-in compass comes standard in the Maxima but is nowhere to be found in the Taurus or LaCrosse. This can attest to the extra steps the engineers at Nissan go to take their concept to the next level, even if it is just the little things.

Technology is a requirement in this day-in-age when it comes to purchasing a new vehicle. You will never lose sight of where you are on the roadway thanks to the standard integrated navigation system in the Maxima. This technology uses voice activation through NissanConnectSM1, so you never have to remove your hands from where they belong to maintain a safe drive. When it comes to the 2017 Ford Taurus and the 2017 Buick LaCrosse, you will have to look toward the higher trims to find features like this. Go ahead and indulge in over 150 channels of music, sports, talk, and more thanks to the standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio2 in the Maxima, while you are left with AM/FM radio in the lower trims of the Taurus and LaCrosse. Other standard conveniences on the Maxima that cannot be found within our other competitors include an oil pressure gauge so you can always be aware of your levels while taking to the roadway.

What more could you possibly want when it comes to a midsize sedan that is meticulous as it is powerful from top to bottom? We hope that this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Ford Taurus vs 2017 Buick Lacrosse in East Windsor, NJ, has given you a bit more insight on which choice is the perfect fit. Stop by and visit our team at Windsor Nissan to see everything it has to offer! We are located at 590 US-130 in East Windsor, NJ!

Testimonials

Made the care buying experience Easy

East Windsor, NJ
October 11, 2017

I recently bought an used car from Roy. He was very professional and very polite. He made the car buying experience easy and enjoyable. Thank you for the great service.

I am very happy with my new vehicle

Cranbury, NJ
October 17, 2017

I just bought a new car, and our agent was Charlie; he helped us with everything, and he was very nice and he answered all of our questions with a lot of patience. Everybody there is very professional. Everything was fast, and we were able to have the car in no time. I am very happy with my new vehicle. I will definitely go back!!

Very Positive Experience

Hightstown, NJ
September 30, 2017

Shopping for a car can be very unnerving, but both Benny and Moe made the experience both fairly painless and pleasant. They answered questions, and avoided the high-pressure sales tactics you often associate with car dealerships. They both also made sure to focus on me, and my needs and concerns and did not try to sell me extras that I neither needed nor wanted. I am also very pleased with the car I am now leasing from them (2017 Nissan Rogue SL AWD). If you are considering a Nissan, check them out. If you're not, then you may want to re-think that, visit Windsor Nissan and ask for Benny Lopez!

We got a great deal

East Windsor, NJ
September 4, 2017

This was one of the most pleasant and successful trips I have ever made to a dealer. Jeremy reached out to me and was very happy to help. He answered all of my questions. After coming in and working with Charlie we came to a an agreement on a great deal. I will recommend Windsor Nissan to all of my friends and family. Thanks guys!

Great people great service

Morrisville, PA
September 4, 2017

Great people great service! Window has a small chip in it they agreed to fix it also no key with key fob. No problem, they'll cover the cost! This is by far one of the best places to buy a new or preowned Vehicle! Couldn't be happier. A+++

I sincerely love this dealership!

New Jersey
August 29, 2017

I had a turn of bad luck almost two years ago. I left a high paying secure government job for the chance of learning a new area of law and building a practice at a small firm. The owner was dishonorable and it didn't work out. Out of the ashes I built my own firm which is now thriving. However my credit is not good anymore and won't be for a long time. I already bought and leased several cars from Windsor Nissan and have high respect for them. That respect and loyalty has deepened ten fold after meeting and working with finance manager Ed Reardon. Ed had a single minded commitment to make this deal work. He comes from a time when credit decisions were based on an evaluation of the big picture of a persons story rather than computer analytics. We had been turned down several other places and always treated with a certain amount of disdain by other dealerships. Ed made it his mission to find a deal that would work for us and leave my wife satisfied in a safe and dependable car she wanted to drive. Today we left the dealership with a new 2017 Nissan Altima SR. My wife is thrilled. I don't believe we will ever buy a car from someone else. Certainly not as long as Ed Reardon works for Windsor Nissan. From the bottom of our hearts we offer our sincerest thanks Ed, our salesman Reuben, and the whole Windsor Nissan team.

Charlie, Anthony and Susan were amazing

Robbinsville, New Jersey
August 24, 2017

Had an Excellent experience at Windsor Nissan. Charlie, Anthony and Susan were amazing and were able to get me into a great car 2016 Nissan Altima even though my credit isn't very good. If you are looking for a new Nissan I recommend going to see Manager Anthony and sales consultant Charlie Gheya.

I will recommend Windsor Nissan to family and friends!

Trenton, NJ
August 12, 2017

I went into Windsor Nissan just to see what my options were. I told Kelvin Mayes (Sales) just looking, just checking to see what's out there. Kelvin made sure I left in 2014 Altima within my price range. Thanks to you and Moe Hussien (F&I Mgr) for making it a great experience and upgrading me. I will recommend Windsor Nissan to family and friends.

I love my new car and couldn't be happier

Keansburg, NJ
August 9, 2017

On Monday evening I went into Windsor Nissan to look at two used cars I had found online. I met Benny and we talked about both cars quickly then I was given some time to look over both cars with my father without feeling any pressure from Benny! I test drove the car and immediately knew it was the right decision, Benny finalized everything with me and I could not be happier with my purchase! Thank you Benny and everyone at Windsor Nissan! I love my new car!

Went to the dealership on Monday before the Fourth of July and talked to Ruben the sales associate. Test drive a 2014 Nissan Altima and by Friday I drove a 2015 Altima with very low miles off the lot. The finance manager that got me to come into the dealership and Ruben have been amazing throughout the entire process and I got a great deal. I will be referring family members and friends to this dealership.

Everyone was helpful an Friendly. My sales associate Tyler was amazing. Thank you guys for this experience an opportunity to rebuild.

Absolutely the best! No pressure and a bunch of sweethearts

Edison, NJ
April 6, 2017

Leased a new Rogue from Windsor Nissan. Roy and Anthony are absolutely the best! No pressure, and the overall experience was great start to finish. I was actually educated on car purchasing and feel like family.

I was in a bad spot in my current lease

Trenton, NJ
January 28, 2017

Ok so I was in a bad spot with my current lease (which I leased through Windsor). I was WAY over my mileage (I have a long work commute), and I really thought I had only one option which is buy my over mileage car, and just deal with it. I was originally calling to figure out the buyout option, but was recommended to come in and give Windsor a shot, so I did. I worked with Roy and Phil (sales manager), and they were amazing. First off, Roy was very helpful and made me feel comfortable, was very nice to me and my fiancee, and understood my situation. That being said, I was advised I had more than one option, and I ended up leaving with a new lease! I have a new job, that is much closer, so I dont have to worry about miles anymore, so its all looking good for me. Without Roy and Phil, I would have been buying a car that could have left me upside down, if anything happened to it, and it was totaled. I really appreciate their kindness, and understanding. If you have a situation like mine, totally give them a chance. You wont regret it. Even if you dont have a situation like me, just go talk to them. It cant hurt, and they will make sure you are taken care of.

Honest Service

Big shout out to Roy for helping us through it all

Trenton, NJ
December 20, 2016

Thank you, Roy Hreiz for putting my wife in a brand new car. We were always intimidated of going into big dealerships to buy and that's why we stuck with small owned car dealerships. But with our recent experience with our salesman he changed our mind indefinitely. Thank you Windsor Nissan and big shout out to Roy for helping us through it all. Come to Windsor Nissan and ask for Roy.
