I bought this car new and have driven every one of its 182,000 miles. There's never been a major problem, just routine service and repairs. Great performance, responsive steering, firm but smooth suspension. I've gone new car shopping several times in the last few years but I never see anything I like as well as my old Maxima. If I could just get another one new just like this one was 15 years ago, I'd do it in a heartbeat!
