A Car Hard To Part With... — Love this car. Personally, the styling (interior and exterior) are true to the luxury 4-door sports sedan mentality. Exterior has clean, straight lines. The stance is both agressive and refined. Interior has all the luxuries one can want in 2002. It would be nice to have an iPod connection in my car, but would not be possible with my current radio configuation. After 7 years, one of the top engines of it's time is still performing as if it was at its peak. Power matched with supurb fuel economy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior, engine, and poise

Cons: Automatic Transmission, front wheel drive

If You Have A Family But Like To Open Up Your Car Now And Then And Are On A Somewhat Budget, Get It. —

Performance - The 2002-2003 model years have the 3.5L V6 VQ35DE which is practically the same as the 1st gen. 350Z's VQ... so it's got plenty of torque and gets up and goooess! Watch out for the torque steer. Mine is the 6 speed manual so that just makes it even more fun! Build Quality - The exterior is great, my car has taken alot and still looks beautiful, I baby her. Interior not so much, the only problem I have with the interior is that the plastic they use for the consoles feels so damn cheap! Everything else inside is pretty reasonable. Try and find one with the Titanium package and Meridian package, rare but will be worth it! Appearance - If you add any type of ground effects (lips NOT body kits) it's aggressive as hell, add a drop and OMG SEX! Cost of Ownership - All my miles are highway miles and with the 6 speed, my mpg is showing 28. I drive about 360 - 400 miles a week and I have to fill up every week(Shell Premium 93 octane). If it's wheel barrings in the front haven't gone out yet, expect them to. Happens to almost all of the 5.5 gen. Maximas. Other than that as long as you baby it, it shouldn't give you any problems. Mine's perfect right now. Fun Factor - 6 speed + traffic can be a pain, but once traffic opens up, drop it into 4th or 3rd, if you're going slow enough, and punch it, feels so good. Add an intake just to hear the engine noise and maaan, makes you wanna waste gas!! -_-

Pros: Good 4dr/wannabe sports car for the money, plus enough comfort features. Great power/gas guzzling ratio!

Cons: The wheel bearings that will go out if they haven't already, but not a big deal really.

Pros: Perfect First Car

2002 Nissan Maxima — Great car. The only way to describe it is tight. Everything else we test drove felt sloppy and the interior felt cheap.

Pros: All the power we need.  Great interior

Cons: Wind noise from back windows.

The Beast — This car is amazing, it look really aggressive from the Front. Looks like a Family car, but the Proformance is the same as Nissan 350Z, since it has the same moter. 0-60 5.9 sec on automatic. I wish i had the Manual, it would have been little faster.

Pros: Amazing Performance

Cons: Look like a Family car

Great Car — The 2002 Nissan Maxima GLE has a great blend of upscale comfort and raw horsepower. It is completely fun to drive, comfortable and reliable. I believe it was the last good-looking Maxima - the current body style is blah in my opinion. The 2009 looks great though. I would definitely buy another Maxima.

Pros: Comfort, Power, Reliability, Fun

Cons: Handling could be a little better (probably should have bought the SE),
the turn radius is horrible - like a school bus.

Nice Car, Very Reliable, Sucks In The Snow — I really wasn't so sure of this car at first, it looked nice, but was still a little boring. Unfortunately I crashed it the first winter I had it, and it is no longer a running vehicle.

Pros: Big, poor gas mileage, bad in the snow

Cons: Fast acceleration, looks nice

It's Like Shaving Your Chest With A Lawnmower. — I love this car. It's probably one of the best cars I've ever driven for the money. I highly recommend it. This one is special because it's the last year that the Maxima was made in Japan.

Pros: Performance, handling, interior, overall torque.

Cons: The stereo cuts out sometimes.
