2000 Nissan Maxima Overview

Nissan's personal mid-size luxury car that promises a sporty performance, the 2000 Maxima emerges this year fully redesigned in an effort to stay competitive with the Accord and Camry. One way it does this is by increasing its length and adding two inches to the wheelbase. The 108 inches expands interior leg and shoulder room, make it more spacious and with a bigger trunk (15.1 cubic inches) than its closest rivals. The 3.0-liter V6 engine also gets a 32-hp boost up to 222-hp, again beating out the ratings of the Camry and Accord.

The 2000 Nissan Maxima comes in base GXE, sporty SE, and luxury GLE trims. A 5-speed manual is standard on all but the GLE, where you'll find a 4-speed automatic. The auto tran is optional on the SE and GXE. A retuned sports suspension is stiffer for better handling and less shudder, and the performance tires (ranging from 15 to 17-inch) improve road grip. ABS brakes and dual front airbags are standard across the line, with side airbags now available as an option. Traction control is also offered as an extra with the auto tran. A new grille, lights, and body shape offers a sporty, aerodynamic look overall.

Even the base GXE is well equipped with power features, but the GLE adds leather seats, automatic climate control, wood accents, and power driver's seat. The sports-oriented SE carries a rear spoiler, 5-spoke alloy wheels, foglights, and black trim on the grille. Heated seats and a sunroof are available on all models. Owners seemed to like the new style of the 2000 Maxima, and say the ride is smoother and quieter, thanks to new sound insulation. The extra engine power is noticeable, especially with acceleration, and the interior is roomy and comfortable, though the backseat is a bit cramped. Peeling paint is a minor problem, but the 2000 Maxima had frequent problems with the ignition coils and oxygen sensors.
