    Great Balance Of Practical And Fun. — This is a great, practical, and reliable vehicle. For the price it's one of the best deals on the used car market. With a powerful and torquey V6 and the 5-speed manual transmission, you have power in almost any gear whenever you need it, and plenty of passing power in 5th gear on the highway. The car gets great mileage for a V6, looks great but doesn't draw unneeded attention to itself. Very roomy interior, with power windows and locks standard.

    Pros: Great mileage, torquey V6, manual transmission, sleeper, 4-wheel discs, cold A/C

    Cons: Front wheel drive, no ABS, no sunroof

    Tank — While I may be stuck with it for the time being, this thing is a testament to Japanese reliability. Transmission laster 225,000 miles before I swapped in a new one, and motor is still running strong.

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Slow, not a S2000

    '96 Maxima, A Decent Car For High Mileage Used Cars — Good driving car, great Bose stereo system, comfortable for trips and around town. Gas mileage is OK for a '97, averages about 20 mpg. But, It's not a Toyota. It has given me some trouble, had to replace both oxygen sensors, then that did not do the trick, needed a new unit that controls the sensors. It failed smog until more sensors were replaced in the exhaust system.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Good driving car, great Bose stereo system, comfortable for trips and around town.  Gas mileage is OK for a '97, averages about 20 mpg.

    Cons: It's not a Toyota.  It has given me some trouble, had to replace both oxygen sensors, then that did not do the trick, needed a new unit that controls the sensors.  It failed smog until more sensors were replace in the exhaust system.

    Wow — in some time in my life, i had to buy a car at the price of 1000$ . At this price you don't really expect to have a great car that is fun to drive, have good performance, with a good comfort but I read a lot about some cars and i learn that the nissan maxima of this car was an exelent car so i started to look a some old maxima and then i found mine and i don't regret my choice because it's an exelent car with an amazing engine

    Pros: amazing car

    Cons: the only thin i don't like of this car is the look of it it doesn't look comfortable
