1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan

Review

Attractive, fun, safe car. [Engine] performance superior in many regards to most competitors, though suspension is merely adequate (unforgivable for Nissan to forego true 4-wheel independent suspension when many competitors have been doing so for years). Also, while the car is enjoyable to drive and reliable, fit- and-finish is merely "average." Finally dealership support is very typical: long waits; dubious sales/service tactics; premium prices. Overall, definitely a GOOD car (safe and reliable); in some ways a VERY GOOD car (potent engine and nice [optional] "creature comforts"); but not quite a GREAT car (mediocre suspension, fit-and-finish).

Best Features

Handsome, reliable car. Engine is smooth, quiet, has a wide, progressive power band, and is surprisingly torquey. Bose stereo very nice.

Worst Features

Rear "Multi-Link" suspension is an unforgivable handling compromise (independent is superior). Fit-and- finish is good but not great.
