Bought my 95 new GLE with all the goodies . Its been a great car with very little problems in 20 years.
With only 70.000 ml the car should last another 20 yrs. Most people talk about 250.000 ml and more well
I'll be gone before then lol ... My brother and I are musicians in rock bands for years and the Bose stereo
Blew us away . Great car if you only take care of it . Use only the best parts for repairs and your Nissan
Will drive happy for a long time .....My car should be a classic before it wares out ...Might just keep it for another 30 yrs ..
I had my 95 maxima for 4 years. Bought from a dealer at incrredible 65K miles in prestine condition.
This is my 5th datsun-nissan. Just change oil regularly at 5k.
Need to replace consumables. Other than that, no major repair needed. Spends aboout $300 for repair/maint.
On my previous 94 maxima, I drove about 300K+ odometer stopped at 230K. I drove 4 more years until the tranny gave up.
Gas mileage is about 20 mpg on city+highway mix.
We bought this car in 1998 and it has 46,000 miles on it.
We drove it until April 2012 when it had 265,000 miles on it.
Very little maintenance on this car.
It would get 34 MPG on the Interstate and around 26 MPG local.
We sold it to a friend and it is still running.
Best car we have ever owned.
Way to go Nissan.
I would have bought another Maxima but they started putting 3.5 liter engines in them.
Bad for gas.
can't understand how the frame could deteriorate so badly that it is virtually undrivable now.
For a car that is 17 years old, I expected more--even if we are in the north.
Have had the vehicle for about 2.5 years, and it has been dependable for our daughter, driving to and from college (some 400 miles away), generally requiring just regular maintenance overall.
But, the car is virtually junk now because of the frame--with only 126,500 miles on it. Very disappointed.
a check engine light comes on often (oxygen sensor?), and it has a lot of rust.
But the frame is the main issue. If purchasing vehicle used, have a pre-purchase check--especially the frame.
Comfortable to drive.
Frame construction needs to be improved.
Check engine light comes on too often.
Bought as a lease return. This car currently (2/2010) has 250k miles. Minimum maintenance.I'm religious about 3k oil changes. I LOVE this car. It is going on 16 yrs. and I have no worry's about long distance trips. Nissan is the BEST. I figured I spend about $600. yr in repairs. Can anybody beat that?
Pimped out features. Ok, Radio and clock LCD died recently.
