Amazing. — Christ, this thing is a beast! Nissan's 3.5l VQ engine and the 6spd manual transmission really get this car going. Its a sleeper for sure. Never have seen a car that looked good, had lots of room, was comfortable, and performed 0-60mph times in 5.5 seconds. Nothing like the 5th Generation Nissan Maxima.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The power.

Cons: The ride height.

Boosted Maxima — Overall very great car.. I added a lot of extra things to make it unique.. A lot of custom work.. the only 2002 with a five speed manual instead of 6spd.. Very fun to drive.. Im pushing close to 400hp to the wheels..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mine is Turbocharged

Cons: Gas mileage since adding turbo..lol

Buy Them Used. They Lose Their Resale Like A Cadillac. — Perfect motor and transmission. Comfortable yet somewhat sporty ride. Great acceleration. Great highway cruising with that 6th gear in the lineup. Very reliable and great mileage considering it had 255 ponies under the hood. I sold it to get into an Audi A6 which was one of the biggest automotive mistakes I have ever made. And I have made some big ones.

Pros: Accel, reliability, ride

Cons: ??? no AWD or RWD I guess

Fun, Fast, Relable — I have had this car since Sept 2001. For a 4 door car it is a sleeper with 250 HP. Over all it is a good car to have and had a blast with it. Car ride is smooth and it does not feel like you are doing 100 MPH.... Most major work that was done was a Trans rebuilt 2yrs ago.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: FUN

Cons: NONE

Maxima Review — The maxima is a great sports sedan. Its 2 door- like quality and speed make it fun, while actually having 4 doors makes things easier for travel. Overall I give the 2002 Nissan Maxima SE 5 out of 5 stars.

Pros: speed, appearance, travel, gas mileage

Cons: expensive

2002 Maxima Se — Gotta have 6M, but lottsa torque-steer. Needs stiffer springs and independent rear suspension... its way too soft. Great on the interstate and amazing mileage...I've actually averaged nearly 40mpg with cruise on long trips. Spacious and quiet, but can put you in jail faster than you think.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: power, stealth

Cons: torque steer, premium gas

Amazing Car That Is Surprisingly Fun To Drive — I bought the car as a daily driver so I could build my other car. The car is surprisingly quick, went 14.0 @ 100 in stock form. Gets 30+ mpg hwy. I bought it as a 6 speed and always wanted one. Now that I have it I am very happy to own it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 6 speed, quick, sounds great, nice car

Cons: none
