1997 Nissan Maxima SE 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this '97 Maxima SE with 27,000 miles on it in 2000. I now have over 160,000 miles on it. Repairs have been minor and this car is extremely reliable, durable and inexpensive to operate and repair. In 160,000 miles I have replaced the starter, alternator and radiator. The other basic maintenance items have been replaced (struts, brake pads, battery, oil, coolant, spark plugs, hoses, belts). It has very few squeaks and rattles after 160k miles. No oil leaks either. Tires are cheap to replace. Oil is easy to change and the engine compartment is wide open compared to most new cars. I would recommend this as a good solid used vehicle.

Favorite Features

Turning radius, dependable engine, smooth revving engine, ease of DIY maintenance, pretty comfortable, reliability, acceleration (even after 160,000 miles)

Suggested Improvements

Better handling,
