I bought my '96 Maxima SE new in Sept.
of '95. It rides very well, still gets
very good gas milage and the engine was
the best of its day. Smooth and
powerful, I have 116,000 miles, much
more than I've put on any of the many
other cars I've owned,(and two other
friends with the same car have 110,000
and 175,000 miles respectively) and I
cannot seem to part with it. I just
bought new tires so I won't have to
face that for another year or two. I
don't know if the new ones stand out
among their competition today as my
Maxima did in '96, but I'm glad I chose
my first Nissan back then.
