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

25

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

My Maxima — Great all round driveability. Great looks. Very reliable. Been driving it daily for 2 1/2 years and compaints are minimal, just a good all round car. Only real complaints are SEL and vinyl instead of leather on seat area.

110K hump, not as much ground clearence as a big SUV

25

Great Car In Basically Every Aspect — Wonderful car, reliable as anything, just hit the 110K mark and it needs a couple things, namely a new cat and ABS sensor, but it's to be expected with any can at 110K miles. It's incredible FUN and PEPPY, and sounds incredible when opened up. The engine is bulletproof, and has never had any issues at all. It's also very comfortable, and offers tons of space, leather, traction control, side air bags, heated seats, and everything you could want in a 2001 car! Safe, reliable, fun, and it looks incredible!

Solid Investment, Will Easily Get Your Kid Through College. — The maxima is a true performance sedan, great handling and acceleration. Quality is top notch inside and out. I have owned this car since new and replaced the alternator, battery, radiator, brakes and rotors. Still gets 30 mpg and will run another 120K miles.

Very Fun And Reliable Mid Size Sudan. A Good Family Car Too. — I'm very happy with my 5 speed 20th anniversary edition. I'm 35 and its so fun to drive! the only problem is the radio system. this has always been a problem with this car. The side window doesn't work.As I write this, it is May 04, 2010 and this car still drives very strong!!!!! It has 130K on it.. Mobile 1 and premium gas... get in and drive whenever in the country you want. It wont let you down!

Starter

Descent — The acceleration of the car is great. The in terior design is sleek spacious and comforitable. The amount of times this car has had a broken starter is more than twice. But its a good car to drive. If you Like speed.

Pros

140K miles and keeps on ticking.  Low maintenance

Cons

The turning radius and wipers suck

35

Fantastic Commuter Car. Not Bad On Gas And Not Ugly Either. Low Tco — The interior is nice, and the engine has pretty darn good pickup. plenty of room for my family of five when our SUV broke down. I have spent $$ only on tires, brakes, alternator, and a battey & tune up since I bought this car with 45K miles on it. Highly recommended.

Like My Maxima Alot — i like my car,very sporty yet for the family as well, i bought mine used for 2,300 from a friend of mine with 130,000 miles on it. the check engine light is on but it is suppose to be due to an o2 sensor being replaced and the computer not being cleared, not sure but it is not giving me any problems at all. drive it everyday, my previous car which i still have is a 93 honda accord...hate to say but my honda rides just as smooth as the newer maxima...wow..but overall the car is fun to drive, love the interior layout, acceleration is awesome, seems to get good gas mileage!

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.

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.
