I just said farewell to my 1992 Maxima
SE with 320,000 miles. It is still a
bueatiful car on the outside, but a
little under-powered these days. Except
as noted in "improvements", I never had
to give my SE anything but oil, brakes,
cv boots, gas and a new stereo (came
with a cheap Clarion disguised with a
Bose name plate). Otherwise, an awesome
car with awesome engineering. Nice job
The SE came with a timing chain instead
of a belt--yea! Why does anyone still
manufacture a car with a timing belt?
The worst thing that ever happened to my
SE was having the CV axles pop out of
the engine spline and trash the axel
splines--a $1200 suprise and a dead car
along way from home. There has to be a
better way to keep CV axels attached to
the transmission than with snap rings.
