Vehicle1993 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis is a really nice family sedan to have and drive. The SE engine feels powerful and the handling is pretty precise, although there's more softness and roll than in a true sports sedan, and no exhaust tune to mention. It has a comfortable & spacious interior, good headroom even with the sunroof. I get about 24 mpg overall (17-33 max range). I've had occasional engine problems, perhaps because Max is underdriven: mostly around town and for family outings. (Reason there's also brake dust on its alloy wheels.) The lovely (aluminum?) sheet metal is thin and dings easily, but still no body rust. I had to replace one of the Bose speakers twice.
Best FeaturesStill one of the most beautiful sedans ever designed, crisp long lines with tight rounding off. Classic proportions (long nose, short fanny). One of the few luxo sedans with a 5- speed for fun. Predictable handling despite a FWD tendency to plow. Much legroom. No cracked or faded leather.
Worst FeaturesI never got the driver seating positiion really comfortable: clutch pedal is too far away when seat supports thighs and wheel & shifter are right, so I added a spacer block. Seats could use more side bolstering. A crank to open sunroof to let out heat w/o having to start ignition.
