    The Maxima — *performance: pulls great, the brakes could be better, and handles great when dropped on coilovers. *build quality: pretty good, just standard maintenance. *appearance: is in need of a lip kit. *cost: don't buy it if you cant afford it. *fun factor: it's a blast to drive.

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

    Pros: it's a great car overall and has a solid engine.

    Cons: only avoid them if they are automatics.

    2003 Maxima Se Ti Edition 6 Speed — Build Quality: I love this car, looks great, reliable, and fast as hell for a 4 door sedan. Car Comparisons: Acura TL... I heard to many horror stories about the 99-03 Acura TL transmisson problems. I could not find any 6 speed TL type-S in my price range at the time.

    Maximus — This is the best car I have ever owned. Currently it has 186000 + miles and going strong. Strong acceleration, decent handling. I have never done anything in regards to non- basic maintenance! love this car , going to keep it for another 5 years!

    Pros: This is my 4th maxima!

    Cons: its getting old, and I am fat and need a bigger vehicle

    Great Car — Simply one of the best cars I ever owned. I sincerely regret the moment I sold it and I am currently looking for another one. Six speed manual, 260 hp, heated seats and steering wheel, bose, 30 mpg hwy, just pure driving nirvana.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: I sold it

    Can't Find Anything Better In Price Range — g8 car, if it wasn't for the curb i hit there would be no complains for it. have the car for over 3 years not a single thing went wrong with it except some suspension components due to the crappy roads out here

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

    Pros: one of the fastest V6 sedans, especially with manual

    Cons: nothing

    Love The Maxima — Brakes are bad. heard that's a common problem in the 2000-2004 maxima. planning on switching with new slotted brembos or equivalent. Hawk pads or maybe green stuff. Want to do a total N/A build. goal is 300-350 WHP

    Pros: VQ35DE,    6spd

    Cons: you like hondas

    I Love My Car And Plan To Hold On To It Until It Dies. — I had to have my transmission fixed before the warranty ran out. The electric window motor had to be fixed. Just recently the motor claps had to be replaced. Two years ago needed a new muffler. But I love my car anyway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Speed/Pick Up

    Cons: Comfortable
