After test driving the Maxima two years
ago, I realized it was the car for me.
Dark green with beige leather and every
option imaginable, with quality and
reliability to match, I'd recommend the
Maxima to everyone I know. It's got
great acceleration, handling, build
quality, and it's fun to drive. No
major repairs to note, other than
antenna and passenger-side power window.
Interior quality and design. Leather
holds up amazingly well (I did have the
windows lightly tinted to protect it).
V-6 engine makes it feel like a sports
car, not a 4 door sedan.
It's kind of noisy at high speeds, and
on long trips the driver-side seat is
very uncomfortable. Fuel economy in
the city also makes it expensive to
keep as an around-town car, and
automatic transmission acts up
occasionally during heavy acceleration.
I bought this car nearly 3 years back and didn't had any problems so far. Very reliable and solid car. The mileage on my car is about 139,000. The car rides smoothly and the power steering is great. It's really stable over 100 mph. The only drawback is the gas mileage, usually gives me about 17 mpg. Three years ago it was not a problem for me but given the current gas prices, it really pinches my pocket. I was in the process of buying an used but reliable car good on gas, i drove many cars, but none was close to the smooth ride and comfort of maxima. If only the gas mileage were good, I would love to keep this car.
Power steering, Spacious interior, Mechanical reliabilty.
Better gas mileage. Power windows regulators cables break frequently, if the power window cables break, the windows go down and wouldn't stay up untill you fix it. Would be great if it stays up when it fails
This is my second 1994 Nissan Maxima and I bought it once again do to it's reliability, power and speed. It drives good in the rain with decent to new tires along in the snow. It's pick up is awesome! Basically keep up with the annual 3000 miles oil change and everything will be alright along with it's tune ups.
My favorite features is: the seat belts, the over drive shift button, the power and comfort buttons, easy steering, and basically how the car looks when it's detailed inside out!
I wish they had a better cup holder that actually works because the ones they have now is a joke. The speakers is a joke as well along with the attena which brakes down and cost a lot to repair. The window regulator brakes down as well.
I purchased my '94 Maxima almost a
year and a half ago. It's got 94k on
it now and it is still a very powerful
car. Antenna didn't work when I
bought it...cost to fix $300. Other
than that no problems at all. It is
an awesome car and it is very
dependable. I would recommend
Maxima's to anyone. I will definitely
buy from Nissan again.
The 3.0L V6 engine makes this car a
force to contend with.
The cup holders are odd sizes and
there aren't enough of them.
I love my maxima. I got it for a great price, half the blue book, and have driven it crazy. I bought it my senior year in high school with 100,000 miles on it and only had minor problems during college (none my dad couldn't fix) I now have 240,000 miles on my maxima and it still drives so wonderfully. I cant get myself to buy another car because they dont match up in driving, features, or anything else! It will capture your heart.
