Great, Reliable Vehicle. Only Complaint Is Its Large Turning Radius. — The Maxima is a reliable, agile and sporty vehicle. It is well appointed on the inside and spacious. It is very limber, quick and powerful. The only complaint that I have is that it has a wide turning circle which makes parking in some spaces very challenging.

A Family Sedan With A Lot Of Fun For The Driver. — I owned a 2002 Maxima SE 6 speed manual and drove it about 90,000 miles in less than 3 years. I bought the base model and had the dealer install leather. I had owned a 1999 Maxima SE 5 speed manual prior to this and loved that one too. The 2002 has a much smoother transmission. The suspension is set up a bit softer than the 1999, which wasn't my personal taste, but my passengers seemed to like it. The interior is also very large. At the time, I had two young children in car seats and could fit three car seats across in the backseat. Not many cars that compete with the Maxima can manage that. Fuel mileage was good throughout my ownership. I see these on the road now and think they are probably the best Maxima that Nissan made.

Love This Car And Plan To Drive It For A Long Time 130k On The Clock Now. — Great car with excellent features, good performance in terms of acceleration, 255 hp, good brakes and handles well. No issues with build quality, power window motor and blower motor have been replaced. Looks great, kinda timeless, xenon headlights look great. Low cost to own, change the oil every 5K and drive. It's still fun to drive every time I push the gas. ***Update Got to 186K on the odometer and needed a new cat, so I traded it in, still miss it though, great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great style and performance

Cons: takes a city block to turn
