Pretty reliable car gets me from a to b and sometimes to c.

Cons

Only problem was old age starter went out but it was an easy fix.

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.

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

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.

Driven Alot Of Cars And This Is Definitely One Of My Favorites!combines Performance,comfort,and Styl — car has a great fit and finish.all controls have a good solid feel.quality materials used that hold up well.styling of the vehicle never seems to date itself,has a sophisticated but sporty look for a four door!they recommend premium gas which does help with performance,but is not necessary.gas mileage is about 28-30 mpg combined driving.repairs are typically slightly higher than the average car,but reliability is worth the little extra!the car is fun to drive and the ride and performance are great.handles like a sports car when you run low profile michelin tires on it.had my maxima for 4 years and replaced the struts,drive axles,and egr valve.thats about it other than regular maintenance.runs smooth,quiet,and strong with 162000 miles!

Quality / Cost of Ownership

Cons

Sports sedan charactersitics take away from mileage / ride as car gets to high mileage.

Couldn't Be Happier — Before geting into specifics, car has 250k miles and except for general maintenance have had no issues (and bought w/ 90-100k miles). •Build Quality / •Cost of Ownership - excellent, excellent, excellent. Only negatives - b/c was built as sports car mileage and ease of driving when not in need of tighter / more responsive could be better.

Good Not Great But Good — I love the style of my car, windows blacked out, paint black tail light blacked out, and the power which most people are surprised at what just stock maxima's do. Dont really like gas mileage, its partly my faught with the porforance mods i have added to it. Inside is all black leather, power everything heated seats, and of coarse the system, 3 12vs and 3400 watts of power.

Speed

Buy It If You Have The Chance Its Worth The Money. — Performance- The car has a large engine for its size so it has alot of power when it is needed. I wish it had a 5-speed transmission for fuel saving. With the SE the suspension is slightly bumpy but it is tuned for performance so i dont mind.with Remoter start and remote windows. It was also one of the first sedans to have indipendent suspension Build Quality-The car has some rust under the car that i am working to remove. Other than that the car is very solid. Appearance- The cars exterior needed to be remodeled by 1999 but it still seemed to be ahead of its time. Cost of ownership- This is where the praise ends. The car requires premium gas, and doesnt use it wisely. Also repairs are expensive although the good thing is they are rare. Fun Factor- This car is very responsive in both acceleration, and hadling. It can also beat a V6 mustang of the same year :). I love this car and i hope it lasts me another 140000 miles.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
