I'm looking at purchasing one of these vehicles, but I'm just curious what the fuel economy is like on them?
I'm looking at the 2.3l 2006 model (face lift).

Any help would be appreciated!

Find a rego or VIN for one, and stick it in this site, and it will let you know.

Using that site it doesn't actually give you a L/100km amount, but with a little maths it comes to 9.6L/100KM.

A guess from a quick image search a Nissan teana is the same as a Nissan maxima

I use this site to track my fuel but you can also look up other cars and see what other people are getting in the real world

Fuelly.com

Here is the links for the maxima

AFAIK the Maxima in NZ only has a 3.5L engine. The Teana the OP is looking at has a 2.3L so need to be careful if making comparisons.

I test drove a few of these before finding myself a VW !
I found the back seat was quite small and the legroom was nothing short of useless i.e. very small.
Apart from the rear legroom issue it wasnt too bad of a drive, theres heaps of these in the market too.
Just stay away from the beige trim and carpets... they get dirty quickly and you might find not all will like the 'tight' front seats and smaller than usual boot space for a car of that size.

What VW do you have? I test drove the Teana the other day, and it was by no means a cramped space?? 

The boot was large, more than enough room for passengers and the seats were large also.

The only criticism I would have is the lazyboy seat in the front... kind of useless lol.
