Can a 13 year old car still compete?

1993 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan

Review

Back in the early 90s, there was no Acura Brand, no Lexus and no Infiniti. You wanted luxury, you either bought a Maxima, or you bought a Cadillac. Show me any American made car on the road that can run as well as 13 year old Maxima? Very high design for basically a 1989 design: independant rear suspension, overhead CAM engines, coil on wire ignition (SE model), variable valve timing (SE) model, and very handsome. These design elements from a 1989 design are still new elements! Compare this to cars from early 90s and show me cars from that generation that had all these elements? Very few can say that. This was what we prize in 2007, never mind in 1989-1994!! Very ahead of its time.

Favorite Features

Good power to weight ratio. Very good engine reliability. Very few cars can last 15 to 20 years on the road. This one is one of the few that can say that. Good handling for a FWD car. Good luxury for its day.

Suggested Improvements

Exhaust manifold gaskets prone to break early. Power window regulator switches prone to break. Fuel injectors at over 100k miles, are expensive to fix. Would have loved to see timing chain, not belt, in GXE model, not SE because replacing timing belt is expensive every 60k miles.
