    02 Max — This car has amazing overall ability. It's quality is second to none. Performance is outstanding, sporting a 3.5L 255 hp 246 lb/ft torque engine. This car is very fun to drive all over town and especially on the highway.

    Pros: It's engine size, build quality, options, etc.

    Cons: sucks gas

    Awesome Whip — My first car, most powerful car in the family, love to drive, no work needed so far, brakes great, accelerates like no other, great mileage and $3.59 for a gallon of gas is great. I get around 21-25 miles a gallon and i can't believe that i have such a great car!

    Pros: Perfect First Car

    Cons: SE stereo a little weak

    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.

    Great Car For Passengers, Sporty Feel, Tons Of Gadgets — Ive owned this car for a little over a year and have put around 15,000 miles on since owning. It is the GLE which has basically every option imaginable except the 6 spd tranny which only comes in the SE. It quite fast, faster than most other sedans, although not sure about the handling it seems to be alright but havent really put it to the test yet. There is tons of space inside and suprisingly it only weighs 3146 pounds... my only wish is that i would have waited to find a 6 spd cuz it would be more fun and a little faster than the 4 spd auto. Traction is kind of an issue, of course i havent tried any different tires on it. ive used a g-tech meter on it and the highest whp i could put to the pavement was 195 and it was a cold day and the tires were cold so... ya hoping it gets better in the summer.

    Pros: Bose 6 cd sound system, luxury, sporty feel, great sedan

    Cons: havent found anything to really rag on yet

    Sporty, Family Sedan That Is A Lot Of Fun To Drive. I Still Get Compliments And Looks, People Asking What Year! — I really like the interior, find it very comfortable and look forward to long drives. The exterior is awesome, the rear could be better, love the front and side profile. It does have a wide turning radius, can be annoying when parking in a tight spot or making u turn. Performance is great other than the torque steer from the front drive.

    Pros: sporty four door, fun to drive, very comfortable (loving the heated steering wheel right now!)

    Cons: front wheel drive, torque steer
