1993 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan
Review
Purchased with 182K on it. Just clicked on 355,555. Runs like the day I got it, 24-33mpg on regular gas. This is the SOHC engine(about 160 HP)but can still run with 75 MPH traffic on the interstates.Nissan got it right with this V6,just keeps going & going & going.A broken timing belt might be the only thing that can stop this engine's running. But the auto transmission is its "weak" spot. Had the dealership flush the tranny and it "broke" in less than 1K mi. Rebuilt..broke, 2nd rebill..broke,3rd rebill(still going@going).DO NOT FLUSH these high mileage cars (just drain and refill) Add a transmission cooler.Sure you will have the parts that can't last forever (waterpump, alternator, fuelpump) but it keeps going @
Favorite Features
Body style-imho, these pre-95's have great lines.Drive @ ride-just update the front struts @ the usual wear-and- tear pieces, you get a great road cruiser.Dependable---never failed to start (drained batteries and broken fuel pump don't count)since I've owned. Bose-Love that sound(you'll have to rebill it
Suggested Improvements
Get those guys that designed the engine to do their "magic" on a tranny that can hang with their engine. Give new buyers an Altima with the features of the 91-98 Maximas with their build quality and dependability. MAXIMAS and MAXIMA OWNERS_ _ _DRIVEN
