Trustworthy — The car rides smooth, has quick acceleration, high top speed(about 140-145), never has any problems, maintenance is easy and inexpensive, the handling is pretty good but has a below average turning radius, the Bose sound system really adds to the pleasure of a long ride.

Decent Car — decent acceleration and speed and plenty of leg room. Brakes arent too great and the fuel economy is decent for a v6 and the car is easy and fun to drive. For a 2001 car its fairly cheap to maintain

Pros

Excellent car for comfort and dependability. Low maintenance cost. Excellent gas mileage. Repair costs minimal.

Cons

Oxygen sensors don't work well with the ethanol in gas today and illuminates the service engine light occassionally. This is a known (non) issue with Nissan's and has never caused any issues, just a nusiance to look at for 10 yrs.

Dependable First Or Second Car At An Excellent Value - Can't Go Wrong — I have always loved the Nissan Maxima as it is the most dependable car on the market for it's value. This was my second Maxima and I owned both cars for over ten years each. These cars are well built and will run forever as long as routine maintenance is kept up. This car has only been in the shop one time in the 11 years I owned it for a minor repair (spark plug coil). The ride is smooth and quiet and the engine runs like a top.

Best — Best car eva. The build quality is very high. Performance wise it is almost like a sports car. The appearance might be a little aged, but the car still looks as good as new! The gas mileage is very good for an older car. This car is very fun to drive!

Pros

Good acceleration, especially at freeway speeds. Fun car to drive on a daily basis

Cons

Requires premium grade fuel. With the price of gas it's hurting the wallet

2001 Maxima = Fun — Good acceleration, brakes well, good handling. Doesn't squeak or rattle. So far only problem was starter died and plastic on top portion of radiator cracked so both were replaced. Interior and exterior styling is top notch. Gas mileage is decent but it requires premium grade fuel so right now that it hurting the wallet. Overall I love my car

Cons

Could have a bit more power.

My 2001 Maxima — The only thing i don't like about my car is the repairs it needs now. The engine is solid but need a little work like intake, headers, exhaust, ect.. you see where i'm going. Once we get the important stuff done the play time will begin. It only has 142,000 k on it and for a V6 it's pretty good on gas.

gas mileage

Maxima — Great car, comfortable but the gas mileage on the 2001 was terrible. Overall it was a very smooth driving car with so so acceleration. I would probably recommend the SE trim to anyone looking at the Maxima. It was not a fun car to drive but it had more power and extras than the Accord's of that time.
