My 2001 Maxima — The only thing i don't like about my car is the repairs it needs now. The engine is solid but need a little work like intake, headers, exhaust, ect.. you see where i'm going. Once we get the important stuff done the play time will begin. It only has 142,000 k on it and for a V6 it's pretty good on gas.

Pros: Very Smooth accel, the gears during hifting is solid.

Cons: Could have a bit more power.

A Fun, Reliable, Stylish Perfornmer Of A Car......poor Gas Mileage —

I bought my 2001 Nissan Maxima SE 5speed in May 2001 w/ 38,000 miles. This car is extremely fun to drive, I typically get bored with my vehicles pretty easily...A year and a half later im still thoroughly enjoying it. Great horsepower on one of the industries flagship V6 engines. Ive had some minor things that needed repaired....the Emergency brake clamp on the right side kept sticking, and was approx $150 to replace. The exhausts do not last as long as they should, I relpaced the exhaust system at 49k costing $600 at a nissan dealership. Midas had a tin can version of the exhaust for $300ish. The catalyctic converter also needed replaced, a dealership was quoting me approx $800+ to have this repaired....I did my research and found that all Nissan Catalyctic converters have an 8yr/100k warranty...I had it replaced for free at another dealership. It has been a very reliable car, never broken down (knock on wood). I now have 73k on it and have taken many long road trips....Virgina, Canada etc and loved the ride. Nissan gets great style points for this car. Campared to the camry, accord etc of 2001, the Maxima easily wins. The exterior is sporty, elegant, and still one of the best looking mid size sedans on the road. The maxima interior is high quality compared to most competitors, and even most Nissan interiors. The Three complaints about this car are: 1, BAD GAS MILEAGE, window sticker states 22-27mpg.....I have a 5-speed manual, and with conservative driving can only squeeze approx 325 miles to a full tank. 2, PAINT - The paint quality is poor. The paint scratches, and chips very very easily. Splashing for the additional "Autobahnd" claer protector etc is a good idea with these vehicles. I keep the wax fresh, and still have a hard time keeping the paing looking new. 3, WIND NOISE - The 00-03 maximas have a major wind noise defect coming from both rear windows. There have been several Technical Service bulletins posted regarding the wind noise but to the best of my knowledge there have been no major solutions posted. Overall, you will be happy with this car....If you love to drive, and enjoy performance, you can easily deal with the gas, paint and wind noise. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Ok But Emission Systems Sucks! — Love the car just dislike the fact that at least once a year (have owned the car for 5 yrs now) I have to either replace an ignition coil, O2 sensor, or catalytic converter. Get replacement parts from junk yard because OEM parts are non-existent. Plus the under carriage has major rust and so does both rear wheel wells. Makes the car look ancient with all that rust , which seems common with this model. I've noticed rusting on most 2001 Maximas in the same area. Cheap metal I would guess. Would not buy another Nissan vehicle because the emissions system seem has problems. But I have loved driving my car though the engine doesn't have a lot of power, and if I have a full car load of people, the engine struggles carrying the full weight.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the styling and handling, dual heated seats, sound system, sunroof, and overall driving experience.

Cons: Emissions system: have replaced 2 catalytic converters, ignition coils, 3 O2 sensors, and 2 alternators, and significant rust around wheel wells.

If It Doesn't Cost Too Much, It's Still Worth Driving. — The engine, transmission and body of this car was built very well. The emissions system and are horrible. The check engine light will just have to burn out. The c-pillars/rear doors have WAY too much wind noise. The drivers seat is comfortable for a really long trip (9+ hrs).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: one of the few cars you ould get with a manual transmission and is great on the highway.

Cons: corrosion issues and the constant check engine light
