Review from a long-time owner
By Alfred Bakewell on
1993 Nissan Maxima GXE 4dr Sedan
I've owned four cars in my life and
this is the only one I never got tired
of. Incredible and reliable
performance. My next car will be
another used Maxima. Only aspects less
than superior have been electrical.
First alternator went bad after 3 yrs.
Second after another 2 years. I had an
electronics problem in the security
circuity that cost a few hundred.
Transmission went out after 140,000
miles which cost $1800. The timing belt
must be replaced every 60,000 miles at
a cost of about $400.
Add up all non-maintenences costs plus
the purchase price of the car and this
car has cost me about $200 a month over
8 yrs. ($4,000 plus $16,000 over 100
months) or 10 cents per mile.
