    It's All I Have Right Now To Drive. — My Maxima is not hot and sassy like my dream car; but it handles the road well it has lots of power and pretty good gas mileage for a 6-CYL 320hp engine. It's got the best break system that I have ever had on a car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable, Agile, Fast

    Cons: It;s a bit too large for someone who doesn't have kids.

    1996 Nissan Maxima — For what it is....a mid-level, modestly-priced Japanese 4-door sedan....the Maxima is an impressive car; and doesn't receive half the credit it deserves. Manual transmission models from 1995-2003 were (for their time) one of the best-kept secrets.....due to a very good power-to-weight ratio and and industry-leading V6 engine that was shared with the 300ZX sports car. Handling isn't great, due to a simple solid-beam rear axle(to keep weight down), and soft shock absorbers. SE models, with a better wheel / suspension package, are fun to drive; and don't exhibit as much understeer as the comparable (but incredibly front-heavy) Accord V6. For its time, the Maxima was the only Japanese-built 4-door sports sedan with a V6 engine and a manual transmission.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Powerful engine, great reliability, fun to drive

    Cons: solid beam rear axle, soft suspension

    Nissan Rocks.. If You Disagree I'll Take You On 99 — awesome performance for a family sedan, takes the corners and sticks.. needs to stay flat. can definitely be a super car with minor upgrades. I'd take a vq over vtec all day everyday. im glad i got a maxima... i love her to death

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

    Pros: faster than scott's accord..

    Cons: its not a 300zx

    Keep Looking As Brand New!!! — I own this since 2005 and It has more than 100,000 miles I thought I was going to have so many difficulties but far from that this car keep running without a major problem. I only keep doing the regular tune ups as usual in every car. It comes with a great smooth leather seats which keep the same appearance as factory, not to mention it comes with dual electronic seats, double vanity mirrors. Awesome factory Bose sound System with CD player and Cassette player also with an external CD changer. Great electronic temperature control system and extraordinary security system which includes the key less entry, Door knob that controls front windows remotely. Overall this car exceed my expectations.

    Pros: Low manteinance, High performance engine, Economic, Spacious, exelent features

    Cons: Electronic anttenna it's hard to replace

    The 4th Gens Max! — Acceleration is great even with an Auto. Braking isn't the best of the industry Handling is good, but not as sporty we can expect Interior looks really great Gas milleage is bad, even with premium fuel The car is fun to drive as a sport sedan overall, really good car.

    Pros: Power, Luxury

    Cons: Drinks fuel like water
