#chariotoffire# — It's fast, but bad on gas. My car is a spirited bronze car, that looks very sporty. Recently, I made it look even more sporty by changing the grille to a more unconventional sporty grille. I am totally satisfied with my maxima

turning radius, cheap interior

Keep Tweaking, Nissan — Ok, so I had my Maxima for 1 year and the only reason I sold it was because the turning radius sucked. Very roomy interior and lots of pep in the engine. The car was powerful, stylish, and fun to drive, but not being able to do a standard u-turn really irritated me. And some interior compartments were cheaply assembled.

For Sedan In 2004. Hands Down One Of The Best! — For 2004, it had an innovative design that screamed drive me! The lost concepts was functionality of the trunk and addition of cassette player. Really? That died in the early nineties. The maxima boast great power, which enable a fun and sexy capabilities. Meaning the 6 cylinder had some Getty up on 18 inch tires with a inticing purr from the dual twin pipe exhaust.

Pros

This car handles excellent, and is fast!  So far the reliability is very good no major issues. I bought the car 2 years ago.

Cons

These cars tend to have problems with driver side power window...mine went out last year I had to replace the power window motor. MPG is fair not as good as I intended. The headliner started to fall a bit at the rear.

Maxima Pimped Out — I've added some aftermarket 20 inch rims to the car, and it looks very nice! Currently has about 215,000. I am looking to sell this car in the near term and get something newer. Probably an American made car. Maybe a Ford Fusion or Taurus

Very Nice And Reliable Car — I like how nice it looks on the inside and outsides, It is very sporty and is somewhat a luxury car. Having astro start in it also made the winters a lot better for me. Pretty good on highway gas millage gets around 30mpg.

Nissan Maxima - Road King — Best Car i have owned so far, Super Quick, Excellent interiors. Muscle car yet elegant, The interior was very spacious and the wooden trim inside gave a luxurious look. Once you buy a maxima, you can never go back to a toyota or any other saloon.

Not Recomended, Get A Different Year, These Are Nice Cars, But Not The 2004. — This is a fun car to drive, fast, nice features. Why the low scores? At 80,000 I just sunk $3500 for a new transmission, this model year is notorious for bad automatic trannies - BEWARE! Get a different year model of this car.

It's My Most Prized And Loved Possesion — Pretty fast in a straight line, handling isn't the best. Difficult to drift because its FWD Huge car, lots of interior room Beautiful Takes premium fuel and gets 19 mpg Decent enough to get by in the snow Maintenance isnt too expensive, Japanese cars are pretty cheap to maintain
