The 1993 Nissan Maxima is the 3rd Generation of Nissan/Datsun Maxima/810 series. This generation began sale in September, 1988 and continued through August 1994 with very minor body and engineering changes during its six years of production. (Due to the extreme text size limitations here ( < 64MB), my review will be brief.) The car seats four comfortably, seats five tolerably. Has an excellent ride for a car of it's size, six cylinder engine (two types), excellent power and good fuel economy. Well built to survive around 200,000 miles and about 15 to 20 years of use. Good trunk, great engine, very reliable. Arguably a better car than previous or future generations of the Maxima.
Reliability: The car is designed to run for up to 200,000 miles. High quality parts and thoughtful engineering. Comfortable: Handles well, very comfortable low-fatigue highway car. Excellent in city driving. Good fuel economy for 6-cylinder cars. CA cars have excellent highway fuel economy.
Fold down rear seats (appeared in newer generations of Maximas), window regulators infamous for teflon slide sockets age-fracturing causing windows to fall into the doors after eight or so years), some plastic/rubber parts age after 12 to 16 years (but seals last virtually forever), otherwise great!
