Great Value, Stupid Power, Ve!ry Luxurious — Great value for the money. Obscenely powerful, big, comfy and luxurious, even moderatly good on gas., tons of luxury and fun options. Gorgeous Interior! I wish I never got rid of it.

Pros: Powerful, luxurious, heated steering wheel (for those of us in the Great White North, that's a huge feature!) - awesome value

Cons: I no longer have it.

Decent Car — It only took one test drive to tell that this was not the car for me... While it does accelerate, brake, and handle decently for a mid-size car, it simply did not impress me like the numbers did. 265HP seems like a very impressive number, but the car just doesn't seem like its that powerful. Nice car, but did not meet up to my expectations.

Pros: Powerful engine, good sound system

Cons: Fuel economy, overall performance

My Third Maxima — This is my third Nissan Maxima SE. All of my maximas were reliable and fun to drive. The 03 Maxima has a lot of miles 204K mainly because I was driving between Boston and Atlanta so put a lot of highway miles.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Drives nice, good acceleration and comfortable ride.  A true 4 door sports sedan.

Cons: Does not have AWD

Underrated And Overlooked. I'm Sure Your Rsx Is Quick Though, I'm Sure. — 255 stock hp (about 265 right now w/mods) Sport Suspension Titanium Package Meridian Package I was never really into cars. Then I bought this in '06. Nissan's VQ is the best V6 on the market, dollars for horses. Period. I love the ride, the acceleration, and the handling. Wish there was a better aftermarket for it...

Pros: Power, performance, luxury, Bose stereo system, decent MPGs for a performance engine

Cons: Factory stereo is finicky, needs a more aggressive stance - I can't afford lowering springs, styling's a bit awkward in areas.

Looks/Style Ranked 2003 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S FWD better.
"The TL has sleek body lines and those amazing headlights that were truly ahead of its time. Acura also gave the Type S trim level some nicely appointed sporty features to put it over the top. The Maxima was a bit more boxy and therefore I gave the nod to the TL type S."
Front Seats Ranked 2003 Acura TL 3.2 Type-S FWD worse.
"The Maxima is a more comfortable vehicle for a family. The seats feel just a bit larger and a little softer when in good condition."
