#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

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.

Amazing — I love this car so much. I haven't had any issues with it before, and I've owned it for over a year now. I couldn't think of a better first car purchase that I could have had. it's so much fun, I always find myself unable to wait to get behind the steering wheel again.

Maxima Is A Great Family Sports Car — Nissan Maxima is a great sports car as well as a great family car with plenty of room. Love it's response and power when in traffic. Excellent passing power as well. Wanna get around someone in a hurry, this vehicle will do it.

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

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

Lovely — Had this car for about 2 years, bought it from a relative who was getting a Lexus at the time. Love the looks and the feel of the car. Nothing beats those heated seats in New Yorks cold mornings. Drove it to Boston (500 miles two ways) on one tank and a quarter. Very confortable ride.

Pros

25K was a good price for a car of this class.

Cons

Torque steer, I dislike Eagle SE-R tires, 3 recalls

35

Look At Motor Trend Or Something Else To Find The Best In Class Cars — The Performance was good, with its VQ 3.5, but the FF layout made this car torque steer. Manu-Matic is fun and automatically shifts up after 6k RPM. Build Quality was a little less than I hoped for, some fit and finish problems near the console and passenger cabin. The Appearance was slick, but the midnight blue color begs to be cleaned often. It costs alot more gas than I thought it should but it was mostly for city drivin., IMO the car has problems with the engine mount and AC vents, especially on the passenger side. The Fun Factor is average, it feels somewhat unrefined and the sport suspension isn't too comfy on some bad Hawaii roads.
