    Look At Motor Trend Or Something Else To Find The Best In Class Cars — The Performance was good, with its VQ 3.5, but the FF layout made this car torque steer. Manu-Matic is fun and automatically shifts up after 6k RPM. Build Quality was a little less than I hoped for, some fit and finish problems near the console and passenger cabin. The Appearance was slick, but the midnight blue color begs to be cleaned often. It costs alot more gas than I thought it should but it was mostly for city drivin., IMO the car has problems with the engine mount and AC vents, especially on the passenger side. The Fun Factor is average, it feels somewhat unrefined and the sport suspension isn't too comfy on some bad Hawaii roads.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 25K was a good price for a car of this class.

    Cons: Torque steer, I dislike Eagle SE-R tires, 3 recalls

    Not Recomended, Get A Different Year, These Are Nice Cars, But Not The 2004. — This is a fun car to drive, fast, nice features. Why the low scores? At 80,000 I just sunk $3500 for a new transmission, this model year is notorious for bad automatic trannies - BEWARE! Get a different year model of this car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fast, comfortable, roomy rear seat

    Cons: A new tranny at 88k?  Need I say more?

    Nissan Maxima - Road King — Best Car i have owned so far, Super Quick, Excellent interiors. Muscle car yet elegant, The interior was very spacious and the wooden trim inside gave a luxurious look. Once you buy a maxima, you can never go back to a toyota or any other saloon.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    My Car, Ups N Downs But Mainly Ups — Really fast for front wheel drive 6-cylinder of its size, handles quite well, kinda solid gangsta look without being american trash, comes base with all kinds of features (skyroof, heated power seats n steering wheel, 18" wheels, etc), really easy to create an original look on the road n be your own

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: acceleration and handling given parameters, look, quality build, price

    Cons: Cornering radius (TERRIBLE), fuel mileage, FWD

    Luxury And Fast Sportiness In One — Fast car, comfortable car. Great quality, Nissan reliability. The build on the car is so so, paint chips on the front and such. Aerodynamics is cool, styling and all. Fun to drive as it can really get up and go, a bit pricy but good combo of sportiness and luxury.

    Pros: Really fast, offers a good sound system and comfort, surprisingly decent mpg, engine hums!

    Cons: Tight brakes, can get dirty easy (mainly rims) and fog lamps seem oddly placed

    2004 Maxima — Acceleration and braking is great with the torque steering as a minus and the turning radius is less than average. It's a nissan so the car is lasting so far as most foreign cars are more dependable when you maintain it well. MPG is about 18-21 miles per gallon on average so its not bad...I think.

    Pros: Power, Build, features and looks good

    Cons: torque steering and sunroof

    Nice Max! — I love this car. Its a rare 6-speed model. Its very fast i have surprized a few Z's, g35's and M3's. It has tein springs and 06 350z rims. It runs 14.3. The car handles great. I really wish it was rear wheel drive but its all good!

    Pros: Fast, Nice and Cool

    Cons: Front wheel drive needs stronger engine mounts

    Badass. — It's a real badass car. It is actually real quick. I love how my windows are blacked out on it. I think I get about 21 mpg city, and then about 27 mpg highway. This a very fun car to drive everything works real well on it. And is just the best car.

    Pros: fast.

    Cons: hard to see out the windows (but that's only cause my windows are tinted real dark).

    Keep Tweaking, Nissan — Ok, so I had my Maxima for 1 year and the only reason I sold it was because the turning radius sucked. Very roomy interior and lots of pep in the engine. The car was powerful, stylish, and fun to drive, but not being able to do a standard u-turn really irritated me. And some interior compartments were cheaply assembled.

    Pros: powerful engine, smooth handling, stylish looks

    Cons: turning radius, cheap interior
