The current version of the Nissan Maxima can be considered a family sports sedan. But wait! Is there actually a vehicle category like that? Well, we're not that sure, but that's the best way we can describe the Nissan Maxima. To make things a bit clearer, the Nissan Maxima is a mid-size sport sedan that features an interior that is large enough to be a capable family sedan. And what makes the car more family friendly are the loads of comfort and convenience features it is equipped with.
Among the many interior comforts that the Nissan Maxima provides its owner's family with are the various power equipments. These are the equipments that can be easily controlled by pressing a button or by clicking a switch, like the power seats, power door locks and power windows. The power windows, in particular, are welcome developments for newer Nissan Maxima vehicle models as they allow easier access to everything outside the vehicle.
"Power windows" is actually a popular term for vehicle windows whose raising and lowering mechanisms are controlled by power, electronic or automatic window regulators. These are different from the manual window regulators that older Nissan Maxima models may be equipped with. While the theory of operation and some of the mechanical parts used on both types of window regulators are the same, they still differ in a variety of aspects. For one, a manual hand crank is used to operate manual window regulators. These manual hand cranks are replaced by small electric motors in power window regulators.
It is definitely better to have a Nissan Maxima equipped with power window regulators. This, however, is not enough reason for owners of older Maximas equipped with manual Nissan Maxima regulators to get envious. Power window regulators may be easier to operate but because of their complexity, they are harder to repair. The availability of replacement Nissan Maxima power window regulators, however, seems to be higher compared to that of the manual Nissan Maxima window regulators.
