Reliable — Its a good car and even though its been used by person after person she still holds up. I recommend it full heartedly to anyone looking for a family vehicle but wants a little more zip to go with the safety.

All Around Great Car — this car is very roomy has all kinds of great features also made by one of the worlds best auto makers with the 3.0 v6 it has a lot more power than is needed out of a sedan but on the same hand gets about 30 miles to the gallon

Pros

No car can ever replace my Maximas, they are truely four door sports Cars!

Cons

Wish I had got the ABS option, and with so much power running the front wheels wish the car had traction control also, especially when in wet conditions!

Perfect Combination Of Sport, Comfortability And Fun! — 165,000 Miles and she still runs like she is brand new, the nissan VQ engine is a phenomanon, with just 3 liter the twin cam V-6 is just a dream, the power sometimes even surprises me, punch her and she takes off, drive mellow and she is serene, the only major item I have replaced is the alternator at 150,00 miles, she starts on the first start everytime, check engine light came on once, had to replace one of my direct coils, and that's all the work I've done, had 1987 Nissan Maxima before, had till 200,00 miles and until my brother overheated her and blew the head gasket, 110 deg La heat, 8 highschool kids in the car, A/C full blast, and paying no attention to the temp guage, would have rebuilt the engine if I had the time, The maxima has and will always be the 4DSC, the four door sports car, in my mind

My 99 Maxima — This is my second maxima, and I have decided that they are some of the best cars out there. Great mix of performance and practicality...strong, quick engine that is very reliable and gets great gas mileage. Hasn't needed any repairs, and is a very solidly built car. Overall, I love this car and would recommend it to anyone.

Fun, roomy, comfortable.

Cons

18.5 gallon tank costs a lot to fill, but the mileage is decent.

The First Car I Haven't Hated. — Classic 4 door styling. A perfectly respectable V6 with torque aplenty. 5 speed = fun; the AT is spotty anyway. Easy to work on, no major repairs have been needed yet. Gas tank is big and it takes at least 92 octane unless you want to change the knock sensor regularly.

Comfy, powerful, fuel efficient for its year.

Cons

It's not new.

Decent Sporty Sedan — Good Car has 220k miles on it. Only minor maintenance issues so far. It accelerates quickly has good 40-70 time. So far its been not too expensive on ownership. It is very fun to drive. Don't ever drive it after watching Fast and Furious though. It will want to make you drive mush faster since it has that power and is considered a sport sedan.

Great First Car. — Not a whole lot of bad things i can say about the car. Great looks both interior and exterior. Bose sound system is great, non bose sounds almost as good. Unbelievably quick for only having 190hp and being over 3400lbs. Automatic trans is just OK, would be much more fun to drive with a manual. Ride was good, about what you'd expect from a japanese mid-level sedan. Gas mileage is great, reliability is untouched, only had one thing go wrong with it in the year and a half i owned it, which was a starter and that only cost $200 to replace. Bought it with 120k, sold it with 145k, and it ran just as good the last day as it did the first. This was my first car, so it definitely held some sentimental value for me.
