98 Maxima Reveiw — Maxima's are the best in it's class! The car is solid and I never had many problems with it besides unfortunate things that other people have done to it. The car is very roomy and it is still under 3000 pounds. Mine has 220k miles and it is still going

Pros: Hold down the unlock button to roll down the windows

Cons: goes through tires like whoa... it is also how I drive

Dave's Nissan Qx — Good performance, comfortable, handles well! Well built, only needed wiper blades for M.O.T. Washer pump had to be replaced, very cheap! Uses a lot of fuel, if driven hard.I try not to! Haven't had it serviced yet, must get it done soon! I Love it, it looks expensive........ My friend calls it a "council estate Lexus" What does he know?

Pros: Looks, performance, comfort, a bit like me!

Cons: No leather on my one, option on 3 litre I believe

98 Nissan Maxima Review — great car never let me down, never had any major repairs or electrical problem, always had plenty of power to spare. Interior held up two my two boys and was very easy on tires unlike some domestic cars. The only major complaint was the paint quality despite waxing and washing often the clear coat pealed at around 100000

Pros: great reliability

Cons: radio stated to flip out at 120000

Love My Car! — Although this was never one of my fav cars.. I love it! I liked how it looked from the start but you can't beat how well it handles and all the space. It drives so smooth and isn't too bad on gas. It has been through a lot and hasn't had any major problems.

Pros: handling, space, features, comfort

Cons: gas mileage isn't the BEST.. but it's good (21-28 mpg), that's about it

1998 Maxima Se — It is SMOOTH and QUIET, even after 180k miles. It has been VERY reliable for things that are not considered regular wear service items (brakes, cv joints, etc) It's no rocket but it has decent torque for accelerating in passing/merging situations. No torque steer and very neutral handling. Gets about 22mpg currently...I think. For a 4 door sedan, it's a lot more enjoyable than any Camry or Accord out there.

Pros: Quiet, smooth, build quality, reliability, performance (relative - it's no Ferrari)

Cons: ergonomics of switches in the center stack

Seems To Do Just About Everything Right. — My mom's car. Sporty and luxurious at the same time. Just seems to do everything right. Fun to feel the boost of power when you kick the spurs in. Knowing how much extra power you have access to makes you more confident when merging onto a highway or changing lanes. But I wish the rear seat would fold down like many smaller cars let you. I've been able to fit things in a little Ford Escort that wouldn't fit in this car. All this one has is a little pass-through hole for golf clubs, skis, etc. And the powerful V-6 engine uses a lot of gas.

Pros: Excellent performance, luxurious leather interior, wonderful Bose sound system.

Cons: Requires expensive premium gas (and lots of it) and platinum-tipped spark plugs.  Rear seat doesn't fold down to carry more stuff.  No longer available as a station wagon.

4dsc — Bought it used with all the options I want, 5-speed, black interior leather, SE, and not to mention not a bad color either.

Pros: Sporty look, with enough power to carry its own

Cons: Even though it has one of the 10 best engines, I could still use a 3.5 litre
