    00 Maxmius! —

    Contrary to what most people think, the Maxima is a damn solid car. Coming from a racing background, it has a very good chassis for a 4 door sedan. My only two complaints, which could be solved by one request is if it was rear wheel drive and turbocharged. But we dont get that luxury that they do in Japan (Cefiero). If the maxima were even just rear wheel drive with the same VQ powerplant, it would be a classic. It was extremely convienient, had loads of room both in the cabin and the trunk, was pretty quick, almost as fast as my previous Mustang. Would've sounded good with some mods but as a daily commuter, i didn't feel the need to do anything to it. Overall, i would take this over the mustang any day. If you're looking at these cars, maintenece can be a bit bothersome and costly, so make sure the used one you buy has been properly cared for. As well as model year, the 2000-2002 i believe were the 222 hp and the car weighed 3100 lbs. (pretty light for how big it is, helped it handle really well). Then in 03- it's the same body style but they added the 3.5 instead of the 3.0 which also came with a 6 speed. The hp went up to 255, but i feel like the car's balance went sort of out the window just a touch with the extra nose weight. My model i feel was right on the verge of being too heavy in the front, but it was still a blast, you could get little rear end slides with agressive cornering. The extra power and weight of the 03 made it easier to overload the front tires.

    Pros: Lots of room and convienience, Smooth power, good on gas (26-27mpg)

    Cons: Front wheel drive, more power if it were rear wheel drive.

    2000 Maxima — It's a surprising performer for what it is, which is an over powered grocery getter. The engine is smooth and quiet but pulls like a semi. The overall cost is not terrible, could get a bit better mileage, but parts are fairly inexpensive and it's not too hard to work on.

    Pros: full sized sports sedan

    Cons: front wheel drive and not as efficient as it could be.

    Nissan — These cars are known to be reliable. The engine is light weight and powerful, really its one of the best nissan motors out there. Although the California emis. makes things a little harder to fix...

    Pros: its quick and fun to drive.

    Cons: vibrations in the steering wheel

    Means Of Transport With A Kick — I've had it for a while and like it fine. Needs little repairs, has a good pick up. A little bulky.

    Pros: Power, reliability, any gas grade, looks alright, handles well

    Cons: Guzzler, handling is a bit unintuitive.
