2003 Maxima Se Ti Edition 6 Speed — Build Quality: I love this car, looks great, reliable, and fast as hell for a 4 door sedan. Car Comparisons: Acura TL... I heard to many horror stories about the 99-03 Acura TL transmisson problems. I could not find any 6 speed TL type-S in my price range at the time.

Maximus — This is the best car I have ever owned. Currently it has 186000 + miles and going strong. Strong acceleration, decent handling. I have never done anything in regards to non- basic maintenance! love this car , going to keep it for another 5 years!

Cons

nothing

Can't Find Anything Better In Price Range — g8 car, if it wasn't for the curb i hit there would be no complains for it. have the car for over 3 years not a single thing went wrong with it except some suspension components due to the crappy roads out here

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

I Love My Car And Plan To Hold On To It Until It Dies. — I had to have my transmission fixed before the warranty ran out. The electric window motor had to be fixed. Just recently the motor claps had to be replaced. Two years ago needed a new muffler. But I love my car anyway.

Test Drive One First - You May Be Surprised! — Performance is nice due to the 6 speed trans. Build quality is excellent- Appearance is very sporty for a sedan. Fun factor - very fun to drive!! =) Good on gas. Easy on the eyes. 15% tint all around. Nice audio system installed.

Pros

For the money I paid it is a great car 15k taxes in

Cons

it uses premium fuel

I'd Like To Be Buried In It. — I bought this car in the summer of 07 with 58k . It's big, comfortable, fast, and adequate on fuel . Its not cheap to own with the synthetic oil changes and premium fuel; however every time I get behind the wheel all my cares and worries disappear. Its classified as a sport sedan but it doesn't handle very sporty the ride is not stiff more like a cloud . accelleration is great either from a stand still or passing a slower vehicle ,the 3.5 VQ series motor really sings.Its pretty good in the winter as long as you are running winter rubber, the heated seats and excellent defrosting capabilities are great, the traction control is also helpful. I've invested about 2600 into it since i bought it (front and rear rotors and synthetic oil chgs) New summer tires are on the way next summer ; oh yeah also equipped it with mich x-ice on steeles for the winter

Pros

Fast car that really puts off as a sleeper. Lives up to its 4dsc heritage.

Cons

Horrible torque steer and a transmission that shouldn't have ever existed (no overdrive or
sports mode).

25

Fun Sedan To Drive Around With A Good Amount Of Power On Tap — A good car with enough horsepower to make anyone happy. The car overall is solid with mild torque steer when pushing the car at WOT. The car is very responsive, but the automatic transmission really holds it down. 0-60 time is typically 6.7 seconds. The handling of the car is similar to any other fwd car. The added bonus is sporty feel of the suspension.

Fuel economy, overall performance

Decent Car — It only took one test drive to tell that this was not the car for me... While it does accelerate, brake, and handle decently for a mid-size car, it simply did not impress me like the numbers did. 265HP seems like a very impressive number, but the car just doesn't seem like its that powerful. Nice car, but did not meet up to my expectations.
