Cons

Can't really think of any worth mentioning

Daily Driver...check — It's your run of the mill daily driver. With 190hp/205tq, it has adequate performance. Currently has 265K on it and still running strong (original engine and tranny). Plan on keeping it around for a while longer...maybe even give it to my daughter (maybe!).

I dont have enought room to tell you how great the car was

Cons

Stupid crazy driver totalled it!!

1995 Nissan Maxima Gle — The mid 90's Nissan Maxima was a SUPER car. Not only was it a fast family four door but also a good luxury car. I never found another car that came close that was in the same category. If it wasn't for some crazy driver that hit the car in the front left corner of the car.. I would still be driving this great car. This was - hands down - the best car I have ever owned.

Cons

You can get a nicer car.

Oh-yeah. — It is fourteen years old. So it isnt the best in the world. The heated seats take a while to warm up as well as the air conditionor takes awhile to get cool. It doesn't have the best gas mileage, its not bad either, its just an average day car.

It lasts forever!!!

Cons

Its kind of old now...

1995 Nissan Maxima — Overall, the acceleration and handling are awesome, it is a really easy car to drive. Its had its share of minor repairs, mostly the brakes (my mom loves holding down the pedal on hills), so they get replaced every few years. Usually i get about 30 - 35 MPG with it, so no complaints there. I love this car, and I like that it has lasted up to me... it kinda has 400,000 miles on it. oh well, i hope it lasts!

I Love My Car More Than Life Itself =) — Speed, performance, price, options and 400+ miles per tank... do you really need anything more in a car? I paid $450.00 for my car... for what I paid for my last car (a Volvo S80 T6) I could have had 30 of these sitting in my driveway. I kick myself daily...

95 Maxi — The nissan maxima comes with about 200 for this year, but only weighing 2800lbs without a weight reduction, the does 0-60 stock in about 6.5-6.9 seconds and is widely modifiable. a few simple modifications and bolt ons alone allow this car to become a 13 second 4 door sports sedan. many of the mods include the use of a Y pipe which allows the removal of the pre cats and raising the downpipes diameter from a little over an inch up to 3 inches produces a dyno proven 20-30fwhp. this car has been my favorite out of the cars ive owned, and driven. Its sporty, yet luxurious, sleek for its time, easy to fix, and its underestimated

Pros

If you like simple styling and don't mind older cars, I highly recommend the Maxima.

Cons

13 year-old factory CD player finally quit, front-wheel drive limited tight handling and performance

Most Reliable Sedan Hands-down — The Maxima made a modest 190 HP when revved up, but I could get 31 mpg in the summer and at least 26 in the winter. The Maxima was perfect for long trips. I got it with 186,000 mi and owned it until 290,000 mi when I gave it to my sister, who eventually traded it in. It never had mechanical faults, it just required general maintenance. This will probably always be the best car I owned for the price.

Maxima Rocksssss — for what it was, it was a GREAT 4-door family sedan. it was pretty darn good stock, and anything i did to it modification-wise was just to enhance the fun factor. the stock brakes are actually very good ( and fun because NO ABS! :D ). for a +15yr old car it held up pretty well. only things that i can think of that i had problems with were electrical, but of course any old car will begin to show signs of wear and problems will arise if one doesn't keep up with maintenance. overall though, this was a FANTASTIC first car... i miss it so much! :/
