91 maxima long term report
By kookaburra on
1991 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan
very solid, reliable car, engine has been awesome - 122,000 miles & 6k since last oil change (way overdue) and oil level is still at the full marking. Rust is just now beginning to creep around inside the wheel wells and one rear door (Wisconsin winter salt). Only maintenance in 4+ years and 57,000 miles is alternator, distributor cap. Routine repairs of timing belt and water pump, exhaust, brakes, tires, cv boots, ft suspension ball joints.
Bose stereo in this car is awesome. I'm not a big Bose fan for home stereo, but its great in this car. Styling is cool - enough angles so it doesn't look like an egg like the newer Maxima's. Very few squeeks / rattles.
Sport suspension transmits expansion cracks harshly. Little too much body roll in corners. Cup holders needed. Fold down rear seat needed. SE multi-valve engine and its 30 extra hp not available until 1992.
