1992 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I had the manual trans SE V6, and yes I
put over 250k miles on this machine,
until it crapped out on me! Good
styling for a '92. I loved impressing
my friends with how fast this thing
could accelerate. Also i got a top
speed of 135! (On an enclosed racetrack
of course...) I've seen quite a few of
these cars suped up, and I can only
imagine how fast they were.


Best Features

Wow where do I start: RELIABILITY, V6, tall shifter, RWD, SPEED, moonroof, styling, stock rims, spoiler, seats w/ lumbar, comfort, roomy, power windows and locks, trunk space, backseat armrest, change holder thingy.


Worst Features

A couple: cup holders don't do much, center console is pathetically small.

1992 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my 1992 SE from a Private
party in Houston, Texas. It is White
on Gray with 5 Spd Manual. I have put
approximately 30K Mi. on this car and
it runs just like a Jewel. When I
drove it from Houston to Los Angeles
it can keep up with the flow of
traffic @ 85 MPH with no hesitation. I
would recommed this car to anybody in
the market for a reliable used car.


Best Features

Acceleration, Fuel Economy, easy to Maintain, Reliability and resale value.


Worst Features

Upgrade wheels and tires, and Audio System.

Review


I purchased the car new in 1992.. The
car has been a joy to own and drive.
Car currently has 160k on it and it
still running the original clutch.

At 100k I had both VTC sprokets
replaced (1500).. That was the most
expensive problem to date. Then after
152k miles the klacking started again.
I shunted the VTC solenoids, and the
car runs as smooth as ever (without the
valve timing though). The alternator
finally went out this year (2003)..

Overall, I recommend this car for
someone that wants a nice sedan that is
durable versatile and reliable.. I
can't bring myself to sell it..


Best Features

Power, fun to drive, reliability..


Worst Features

Cup holders are a joke, VTC sprokets should be a recall..
